The best free (or commercial) toolkit around for Common Lisp users is
GARNET from CMU.  It provides everything you asked for and lots of
built-in gadgets and widgets. You can get more info about it from
garnet@cs.cmu.edu. Write them and they will tell you how to obtain
GARNET by anonymous ftp.

Here's a brief excerpt from the abstract (typos are mine):

"The Garnet User Interface Development Environment contains a
comprehensive set of tools that make it significantly easier to design
and implement highly interactive, graphical direct manipulation user
interfaces. Garnet provides a high level of support, while still being
Look-and-Feel independent and providing the applications with
tremendous flexibility."

I found Garnet to be well-documented and supported. If you want to
avoid reinventing a probably much inferior wheel, drop them a line.

P.S. My only connection with Garnet is as a satisfied user.
