The MrmRegisterNames function registers a vector of names and associ‐
ated values for access in MRM. The values can be callback functions,
pointers to user-defined data, or any other values. The information
provided is used to resolve symbolic references occurring in UID files
to their run-time values. For callbacks, this information provides the
procedure address required by the Motif Toolkit. For names used as
identifiers in UIL, this information provides any run-time mapping the
This function is similar to MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy, except that
the scope of the names registered by MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy is
limited to the hierarchy specified in the call to that function,
whereas the names registered by MrmRegisterNames have global scope.
When MRM looks up a name, it first tries to find the name among those
registered for the given hierarchy. If that lookup fails, it tries to
find the name among those registered globally. Specifies a list of
name/value pairs for the names to be registered. Each name is a case-
sensitive, NULL-terminated ASCII string. Each value is a 32-bit quan‐
tity, interpreted as a procedure address if the name is a callback
function, and uninterpreted otherwise. Specifies the number of entries
The names in the list are case-sensitive. The list can be either
ordered or unordered.
Callback functions registered through MrmRegisterNames can be either
regular or creation callbacks. Regular callbacks have declarations
determined by Motif Toolkit and user requirements. Creation callbacks
have the same format as any other callback: void CallBackProc(wid‐
get_id, tag, callback_data) Widget *widget_id;
Opaque tag XmAnyCallbackStruct *callback_data;
Specifies the widget ID associated with the widget performing the call‐
back (as in any callback function). Specifies the tag value (as in any
callback function). Specifies a widget-specific data structure. This
data structure has a minimum of two members: event and reason. The
reason member is always set to MrmCR_CREATE.
Note that the widget name and parent are available from the widget
record accessible through widget_id.
This function returns one of these status return constants: The func‐
tion executed successfully. The function failed.
