MrmFetchWidget(3X) OSF/Motif MrmFetchWidget(3X)NAMEMrmFetchWidget - Fetches and creates any indexed (UIL named) applica‐
tion widgets and its children
Cardinal MrmFetchWidget(hierarchy_id, index, parent_widget, widget,
String index; Widget parent_widget; Wid‐
get *widget; MrmType *class;
The MrmFetchWidget function fetches and creates an indexed application
widget and its children. The indexed application widget is any widget
that is named in UIL. In fetch operations, the fetched widget's sub‐
tree is also fetched and created. This widget must not appear as the
child of a widget within its own subtree. MrmFetchWidget does not exe‐
cute XtManageChild for the newly created widget. Specifies the ID of
the uid hierarchy that contains the interface definition. The hierar‐
chy_id was returned in a previous call to MrmOpenHierarchyPerDisplay.
Specifies the UIL name of the widget to fetch. Specifies the parent
widget ID. Returns the widget ID of the created widget. Returns the
class code identifying MRM's widget class. The widget class code for
the main window widget, for example, is MRMwcMainWindow. Literals
identifying MRM widget class codes are defined in Mrm.h.
An application can fetch any named widget in the uid hierarchy using
MrmFetchWidget. MrmFetchWidget can be called at any time to fetch a
widget that was not fetched at application startup. MrmFetchWidget can
be used to defer fetching pop-up widgets until they are first refer‐
enced (presumably in a callback), and then used to fetch them once.
MrmFetchWidget can also create multiple instances of a widget (and its
subtree). In this case, the uid definition functions as a template; a
widget definition can be fetched any number of times. An application
can use this to make multiple instances of a widget, for example, in a
dialog box box or menu.
The index (UIL name) that identifies the widget must be known to the
This function returns one of these status return constants: The func‐
tion executed successfully. The hierarchy ID was invalid. The widget
was not found in UID hierarchy. The function failed.
