XmTabListCopy(library call)											       XmTabListCopy(library call)

XmTabListCopy -- A convenience function that creates a new tab list from an existing list SYNOPSIS
#include <Xm/Xm.h> XmTabList XmTabListCopy( XmTabList tablist, int offset, Cardinal count); DESCRIPTION
XmTabListCopy creates a new tab list consisting of a copy of a portion of the contents of the tablist argument. This function starts copy- ing at the specified offset value of the tab list and copies count values. tablist Specifies a tab list to be copied. offset Specifies where to start copying. A value of 0 (zero) indicates begin at the beginning, a value of 1 indicates to skip the first tab, and so on. A negative indicates to begin counting backwards from the end. A value of -1 indicates to start copying from the last tab. count Specifies the number of tabs to copy. A value of 0 (zero) indicates to copy all elements from the starting point to the end (beginning if offset is negative) of the tab list. RETURN
If tablist is NULL, this function returns NULL. Otherwise, this function returns a newly allocated XmTabList. If the function does allo- cate an XmTabList, then the application is responsible for managing the allocated space. The application can recover the allocated space by calling XmTabListFree. RELATED

XmTabListRemoveTabs -- A convenience function that removes noncontiguous tabs SYNOPSIS
#include <Xm/Xm.h> XmTabList XmTabListRemoveTabs( XmTabList oldlist, Cardinal *position_list, Cardinal position_count); DESCRIPTION
XmTabListRemoveTabs removes noncontiguous tabs from a tab list. The function creates a new tab list by copying the contents of oldlist and removing all tabs whose corresponding positions appear in the position_list array. A warning message is displayed if a specified position is invalid; for example, if the value is a number greater than the number of tabs in the tab list. tablist Specifies the tab list. The function deallocates oldlist and the tabs it contains after extracting the required information. position_list Specifies an array of the tab positions to be removed. The position of the first tab in the list is 0 (zero), the position of the second tab is 1, and so on. position_count Specifies the number of elements in the position_list. RETURN
If oldlist or position_list is NULL, or position_count is 0 (zero), returns oldlist. Otherwise, this function returns the new tab list. The function allocates space to hold the returned tab list. The application is responsible for managing the allocated space. The applica- tion can recover the allocated space by calling XmTabListFree. RELATED
