       DtActionLabel — get the localizable label string for an action

       #include <Dt/Action.h>
       char *DtActionLabel(
       char *actionName);

       The  DtActionLabel  function  provides  access to the localizable label
       string associated with an action named actionName. The actionName argu‐
       ment  is	 the  name of the action.  The localizable label string is the
       string that all components should display to identify the  action.   If
       the  action definition does not specify a label string, the action name
       itself is returned.

       The label string associated with an  action  is	localizable,  but  the
       action name is not.

       If  there are multiple actionName actions, the label string returned is
       the label associated with the most general action.   The	 most  general
       action is the one with the lowest precedence, as described in dtaction‐
       file(4) (``Action Selection'').

       Upon successful completion, the DtActionLabel function returns a	 newly
       allocated  copy	of  the	 localizable  label string associated with the
       action if an action named actionName is found;  otherwise,  it  returns
       NULL.  It  is  up to the caller to free the memory associated with this
       new copy of the label.  The default value for an action	label  is  the
       action name itself.

       All applications displaying action names should use the action label to
       identify an action.
