NAME
XmTextPosition -- Data type for a character position within a text string SYNOPSIS
#include <Xm/Xm.h> DESCRIPTION
XmTextPosition is an integer data type that holds a character's position within a text string for Text and TextField. An XmTextPosition value conceptually points to the gap between two characters. For example, consider a text string consisting of N charac- ters. A value of 0 refers to the position immediately prior to the first character. A value of 1 refers to the position in between the first and second characters. A value of N refers to the position immediately following the last character. Therefore, the text string of N characters actually contains N + 1 positions. RELATED

NAME
XmTextFindString -- A Text function that finds the beginning position of a text string SYNOPSIS
#include <Xm/Xm.h> Boolean XmTextFindString( Widget widget, XmTextPosition start, char *string, XmTextDirection direction, XmTextPosition *position); DESCRIPTION
XmTextFindString locates the beginning position of a specified text string. This routine searches forward or backward for the first occur- rence of the string starting from the given start position. If it finds a match, the function returns the position of the first character of the string in position. If the match string begins at the current position, this routine returns the current position. widget Specifies the Text widget ID. start Specifies the character position from which the search proceeds. This is an integer number of characters from the beginning of the text buffer. The first character position is 0 (zero). string Specifies the search string. direction Indicates the search direction. It is relative to the primary direction of the text. The possible values are XmTEXT_FORWARD The search proceeds toward the end of the text buffer. XmTEXT_BACKWARD The search proceeds toward the beginning of the text buffer. position Specifies the pointer in which the first character position of the string match is returned. This is an integer number of charac- ters from the beginning of the buffer. The first character position is 0 (zero). If the function returns False, this value is undefined. For a complete definition of Text and its associated resources, see XmText(3). RETURN
Returns True if a string match is found; otherwise, returns False. RELATED
