This value is meaningful only if the function returns True. y Specifies the pointer in which the y position is returned. The returned position is the distance from the top of the widget to the character's baseline. This value is meaningful only if the function returns True. For a complete definition of Text and its associated resources, see XmText(3). RETURN
