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