       MrmFetchWidget — Fetches and creates an indexed (UIL named) application
       widget and its children


       #include <Mrm/MrmPublic.h>
       Cardinal MrmFetchWidget(
       MrmHierarchy hierarchy_id,
       String index,
       Widget parent_widget,
       Widget *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
       subtree  is  also  fetched and created.  This widget must not appear as
       the child of a widget within its own subtree. MrmFetchWidget  does  not
       execute XtManageChild for the newly created widget.

       All  widgets fetched by a call to MrmFetchWidget are not managed at the
       time of their creation callbacks.

                 Specifies the ID of  the  UID  hierarchy  that  contains  the
                 interface definition.  The value of hierarchy_id was returned
                 in a previous call to MrmOpenHierarchyPerDisplay.

       index     Specifies the UIL name of the widget to fetch.

                 Specifies the parent widget ID.

       widget    Returns the widget ID of the created widget.

       class     This argument must be set to an actual pointer; it cannot  be
                 a  NULL  pointer.  MrmFetchWidget  sets  this  argument to an
                 implementation dependent value.

       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
       referenced (presumably in a callback), and  then  used  to  fetch  them

       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 template 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 the following status return constants:

                 The function executed successfully.

                 The hierarchy ID was invalid.

                 The widget was not found in UID hierarchy.

                 The function failed.
