MrmFetchSetValues(3X) OSF/Motif MrmFetchSetValues(3X)NAMEMrmFetchSetValues - Fetches the values to be set from literals stored
in UID files
Cardinal MrmFetchSetValues(hierarchy_id, widget, args, num_args)
MrmHierarchyhierarchy_id; Widget widget;
ArgList args; Cardinal num_args;
The MrmFetchSetValues function is similar to XtSetValues, except that
the values to be set are defined by the UIL named values that are
stored in the UID hierarchy. MrmFetchSetValues fetches the values to
be set from literals stored in UID files. Specifies the ID of the UID
hierarchy that contains the specified literal. The hierarchy_id was
returned in a previous call to MrmOpenHierarchyPerDisplay. Specifies
the widget that is modified. Specifies an argument list that identi‐
fies the widget arguments to be modified as well as the index (UIL
name) of the literal that defines the value for that argument. The
name part of each argument (args[n].name) must begin with the string
XmN followed by the name that uniquely identifies this attribute tag.
For example, XmNwidth is the attribute name associated with the core
argument width. The value part (args[n].value) must be a string that
gives the index (UIL name) of the literal. You must define all liter‐
als in UIL as exported values. Specifies the number of entries in
This function sets the values on a widget, evaluating the values as
public literal resource references resolvable from a UID hierarchy.
Each literal is fetched from the hierarchy, and its value is modified
and converted as required. This value is then placed in the argument
list and used as the actual value for an XtSetValues call. MrmFetch‐
SetValues allows a widget to be modified after creation using UID file
values exactly as is done for creation values in MrmFetchWidget.
As in MrmFetchWidget, each argument whose value can be evaluated from
the UID hierarchy is set in the widget. Values that are not found or
values in which conversion errors occur are not modified.
Each entry in the argument list identifies an argument to be modified
in the widget. The name part identifies the tag, which begins with
XmN. The value part must be a string whose value is the index of the
literal. Thus, the following code would modify the label resource of
the widget to have the value of the literal accessed by the index
OK_button_label in the hierarchy: args[n].name = XmNlabel;
args[n].value = "OK_button_label";
This function returns one of these status return constants: The func‐
tion executed successfully. At least one literal was successfully
fetched. The hierarchy ID was invalid. The function failed.
