NAME
       XmObjectAtPoint	--  A  toolkit	function  that determines which child intersects or comes
       closest to a specified point

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Xm/Xm.h>
       Widget XmObjectAtPoint(
       Widget widget,
       Position x,
       Position y);

DESCRIPTION
       XmObjectAtPoint searches the child list of the specified manager widget	and  returns  the
       child most closely associated with the specified x,y coordinate pair.

       For  the  typical Motif manager widget, XmObjectAtPoint uses the following rules to deter-
       mine the returned object:

	  o  If one child intersects x,y, XmObjectAtPoint returns the widget ID of that child.

	  o  If more than one child intersects x,y, XmObjectAtPoint returns the widget ID of  the
	     visible child.

	  o  If no child intersects x,y, XmObjectAtPoint returns NULL.

       The preceding rules are only general. In fact, each manager widget is free to define "most
       closely associated" as it desires.  For example, if no child  intersects  x,y,  a  manager
       might return the child closest to x,y.

       widget	 Specifies a manager widget.

       x	 Specifies the x-coordinate about which you are seeking child information. The x-
		 coordinate must be specified in pixels, relative to the left side of manager.

       y	 Specifies the y-coordinate about which you are seeking child information. The y-
		 coordinate must be specified in pixels, relative to the top side of manager.

RETURN
       Returns	the  child  of manager most closely associated with x,y.  If none of its children
       are sufficiently associated with x,y, returns NULL.
