NAME

XmtBuildDialog(), XmtBuildQueryDialog() - create a dialog shell and its descendants.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

   #include <Xmt/Create.h>

   Widget XmtBuildDialog(Widget parent, String dialog_name, XtResourceList resources, Cardinal num_resources)

   Widget XmtBuildQueryDialog(Widget parent, String dialog_name, XtResourceList resources, Cardinal num_resources,
{ String child_name, Widget *child_address, }
NULL)

ARGUMENTS

INPUTS
parent The parent of the dialog shell to be created.
dialog_name The name of the dialog shell to be created.
resources An optional resource list that gives names, types and offsets for each of the data items that will be displayed or input through the dialog box.
num_resources The number of elements in the resources array.
child_name The name of a widget to be returned. May be repeated any number of times in a NULL-terminated variable-length argument list.

OUTPUTS

child_address The address at which the widget specified by child_name is to be stored. May be repeated any number of times in a NULL-terminated variable length argument list.

RETURNS

The child of the newly created dialog shell; a grandchild of parent.

DESCRIPTION

XmtBuildDialog() and XmtBuildQueryDialog() create an XmDialogShell widget with the specified name and parent, and then read the xmtChildren resource for that widget database and use it to recursively create all the descendants of the dialog shell, in the same way that XmtCreateChildren() and

XmtCreateQueryChildren() do.

Like XmtCreateQueryChildren(), XmtBuildQueryDialog() will return pointers to the widgets named in its NULL-terminated variable-length argument list.

XmtCreateChildren() and related widget creation functions parse a widget specification grammar described in Chapter 12, Automatic Widget Creation. XmtBuildDialog() and XmtBuildQueryDialog() extend this grammar, to allow the name of a data value to be associated with any widget in the dialog. The resources argument is an array of XtResource structures that defines a data type, size, and offset for each of these named data values. These named data values are used by the Xmt automatic dialog management facilities described in Chapter 31, Custom Dialogs and Automatic Dialog Management.

USAGE

Note that these functions do not return the XmDialogShell widget they create, but rather the child of that widget. (Recall that shell widgets can only have a single child.) You can pop up and pop down the dialog shell by managing and unmanaging its child. If you are using the automatic dialog management facilities of Chapter 29, you can also use convenience functions like XmtDialogDo() and XmtDialogDoSync().
