XmStringDraw -- A compound string function that draws a compound string in an X window
Display * d,
unsigned char alignment,
unsigned char layout_direction,
XRectangle * clip);
XmStringDraw draws a compound string in an X Window. If a compound string segment uses a rendition that contains a font set, the graphic
context passed to this routine will have the GC font member left in an undefined state. The underlying XmbStringDraw function called by
this routine modifies the font ID field of the GC passed into it and does not attempt to restore the font ID to the incoming value. If the
compound string segment is not drawn using a font set, the graphic context must contain a valid font member. Graphic contexts created by
XtGetGC are not valid for this routine; instead, use XtAllocateGC to create a graphic context.
d Specifies the display.
w Specifies the window.
Specifies the render table.
string Specifies the string.
gc Specifies the graphics context to use.
x Specifies a coordinate of the rectangle that will contain the displayed compound string.
y Specifies a coordinate of the rectangle that will contain the displayed compound string.
width Specifies the width of the rectangle that will contain the displayed compound string.
alignment Specifies how the string will be aligned within the specified rectangle. It is either XmALIGNMENT_BEGINNING, XmALIGNMENT_CENTER,
Controls the direction in which the segments of the compound string will be laid out. It also determines the meaning of the
clip Allows the application to restrict the area into which the compound string will be drawn. If the value is NULL, clipping will be
determined by the GC.
