       MrmFetchSetValues  —  Fetches the values to be set from literals stored
       in UID files


       #include <Mrm/MrmPublic.h>
       Cardinal MrmFetchSetValues(
       MrmHierarchy hierarchy_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 value of hierarchy_id was returned in
                 a previous call to MrmOpenHierarchyPerDisplay.

       widget    Specifies the widget that is modified.

       args      Specifies   an  argument  list  that  identifies  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 literals in UIL as
                 exported values.

       num_args  Specifies the number of entries in args.

       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.
       MrmFetchSetValues  allows  a widget to be modified after creation using
       UID  file  values  the  same  way   creation   values   are   used   in

       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 the following status return constants:

                 The function executed successfully.

                 At least one literal was successfully fetched.

                 The hierarchy ID was invalid.

                 The function failed.
