MrmFetchLiteral(3X) OSF/Motif MrmFetchLiteral(3X)NAMEMrmFetchLiteral - Fetches a literal from a UID file
int MrmFetchLiteral(hierarchy_id, index, display, value, type)
MrmHierarchyhierarchy_id; String index; Dis‐
play *display; XtPointer *value; MrmCode *type;
The MrmFetchLiteral function reads and returns the value and type of a
literal (named value) that is stored as a public resource in a single
UID file. This function returns a pointer to the value of the literal.
For example, an integer is always returned as a pointer to an integer,
and a string is always returned as a pointer to a string.
Applications should not use MrmFetchLiteral for fetching icon or color
literals. If this is attempted, MrmFetchLiteral returns an error.
Specifies the ID of the UID hierarchy that contains the specified lit‐
eral. The hierarchy_id was returned in a previous call to MrmOpenHier‐
archyPerDisplay. Specifies the UIL name of the literal (pixmap) to
fetch. You must define this name in UIL as an exported value. Speci‐
fies the display used for the pixmap. The display argument specifies
the connection to the X server. For more information on the Display
structure see the Xlib function XOpenDisplay. Returns the ID of the
named literal's value. Returns the named literal's data type. Types
are defined in the include file <Mrm/MrmPublic.h>.
This function returns one of these status return constants: The func‐
tion executed successfully. The hierarchy ID was invalid. The literal
was not found in the UIL file. The caller tried to fetch a literal of
a type not supported by this function. The function failed.
