— Registers the values associated with the names
referenced in UIL (for example, UIL callback function names or UIL identifier
function registers a vector of names and associated
values for access in MRM. The values can be callback functions, pointers to
user-defined data, or any other values. The information provided is used to
resolve symbolic references occurring in UID files to their run-time values.
For callbacks, this information provides the procedure address required by the
Motif Toolkit. For names used as identifiers in UIL, this information provides
any run-time mapping the application needs.
This function is similar to MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy
, except that the
scope of the names registered by MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy
to the hierarchy specified in the call to that function, whereas the names
registered by MrmRegisterNames
have global scope. When MRM looks up a
name, it first tries to find the name among those registered for the given
hierarchy. If that lookup fails, it tries to find the name among those
- Specifies a list of name/value pairs for the names to be registered. Each
name is a case-sensitive, NULL-terminated ASCII string. Each value is a
32-bit quantity, interpreted as a procedure address if the name is a
callback function, and uninterpreted otherwise.
- Specifies the number of entries in register_list.
The names in the list are case-sensitive. The list can be either ordered or
Callback functions registered through MrmRegisterNames
can be either
regular or creation callbacks. Regular callbacks have declarations determined
by Motif Toolkit and user requirements. Creation callbacks have the same
format as any other callback:
- Specifies the widget ID associated with the widget performing the callback
(as in any callback function).
- Specifies the tag value (as in any callback function).
- Specifies a widget-specific data structure. This data structure has a
minimum of two members: event and reason. The reason member is always set
Note that the widget name and parent are available from the widget record
accessible through widget_id
This function returns one of the following status return constants:
- The function executed successfully.
- The function failed.
