NAME
       XmTabCreate -- A convenience function that creates a tab stop

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Xm/Xm.h>
       XmTab XmTabCreate(
       float value,
       unsigned char units,
       XmOffsetModel offset_model,
       unsigned char alignment,
       char *decimal);

DESCRIPTION
       XmTabCreate creates a tab stop at a position defined by the value and units arguments.

       value	 Specifies  the floating point value to be used in conjunction with units to cal-
		 culate the location of the tab stop.  Note that negative values are not  permit-
		 ted.

       units	 Specifies  the  unit type (for example, XmMILLIMETERS) to be used in conjunction
		 with value to calculate the location of the tab stop. You can specify	any  unit
		 described  by	the XmConvertUnits reference page.  For resources of type, dimen-
		 sion, or position, you  can  specify  units  as  described  in  the  XmNunitType
		 resource of the XmGadget, XmManager, or XmPrimitive reference page.

       offset_model
		 Specifies  whether  the  tab value represents an absolute position or a relative
		 offset from the previous tab. Valid values are XmABSOLUTE and XmRELATIVE.

       alignment Specifies how the text should be aligned relative to this tab stop.  Valid  val-
		 ues are XmALIGNMENT_BEGINNING.

       decimal	 Specifies the multibyte character in the current language environment to be used
		 as the decimal point for a decimal aligned tab stop. This is currently unused.

RETURN
       Returns a newly allocated XmTab.  The application is responsible for managing  this  allo-
       cated space.  The application can recover this allocated space by calling XmTabFree.
