XmtHelpBox(3) FreeBSD Library Functions Manual XmtHelpBox(3)

XmtHelpBox - a widget to display scrolled, multi-font help text.

Include File:
#include <Xmt/HelpBox.h>
XmtCreateHelpBox(), XmtCreateHelpDialog()
Class Name:
Class Pointer:
Class Hierarchy:
Core → XmManager → XmBulletinBoard → XmtLayout → XmtHelpBox

The XmtHelpBox widget displays a multi-line, multi-font message in an XmLabel widget within an XmScrolledWindow widget. It also displays an icon to the left of the scrolled text, and a title centered above the text. The HelpBox is intended to be used as a dialog box, and it positions an Okay button below the help text so that the user can dismiss the dialog.
The HelpBox widget inherits the resources of the XmtLayout class, and defines the following new resources:
Name Type Class Access Default
XmtNhelpBackground XtRPixel XtCBackground CSG default background
XmtNhelpFontList XmRFontList XmCFontList CS NULL
XmtNhelpForeground XtRPixel XtCForeground CSG default foreground
XmtNhelpPixmap XtRPixmap XmtCHelpPixmap CSG None
XmtNhelpText XtRString XmtCHelpText CS NULL
XmtNhelpTitle XtRString XmtCHelpTitle CS NULL
XmtNtitleFontList XmRFontList XmCFontList CSG NULL
XmtNtitleForeground XtRPixel XtCForeground CSG default foreground
XmtNvisibleLines XtRShort XmtCVisibleLines CSG 8
The background color of the help text display area.
The XmFontList used to display the help text. If multi-font text is to be used, then this font list should contain each of the fonts. Note that this resource may not be queried.
The foreground color of the help text.
A pixmap to be displayed in the upper left corner of the widget.
The string to display in the help region of the widget. This string will be converted to an XmString by XmtCreateXmString(), and so can use any of the font changing escape codes supported by that function. Note that this resource may not be queried.
A string to display as the title of the displayed text. It will be converted to an XmString by XmtCreateXmString(), and displayed using the XmFontList speci fied by the XmtNtitleFontList resource. Note that this resource may not be queried.
The XmFontList used to display the help title. This resource is simply a synonym for the XmtNfontList resource of the XmtLayout superclass.
The color that the title should be drawn in.
The number of lines of help text that should appear in the widget at one time. Any lines of text beyond this number will be available via a scrollbar.
The HelpBox widget does not define any translations of its own, because it never takes the keyboard focus itself. It does, however install accelerators for its XmScrolledWindow child onto its XmPushButton child. Because the push button is the only child of the HelpBox that takes the keyboard focus, these accelerators allow the user to scroll the displayed text up and down from the keyboard. Note that these accelerators bind the default Motif scrolling keys, but also allow paging up and down using the standard bindings for the more pager and the emacs text editor.
