XmTextSetSource(library call)											     XmTextSetSource(library call)

NAME
XmTextSetSource -- A Text function that sets the source of the widget SYNOPSIS
#include <Xm/Text.h> void XmTextSetSource( Widget widget, XmTextSource source, XmTextPosition top_character, XmTextPosition cursor_position); DESCRIPTION
XmTextSetSource sets the source of the Text widget. Text widgets can share sources of text so that editing in one widget is reflected in another. This function sets the source of one widget so that it can share the source of another widget. Setting a new text source destroys the old text source if no other Text widgets are using that source. To replace a text source but keep it for later use, create an unmanaged Text widget and set its source to the text source you want to keep. widget Specifies the Text widget ID. source Specifies the source with which the widget displays text. This can be a value returned by the XmTextGetSource(3) function. If no source is specified, the widget creates a default string source. top_character Specifies the position in the text to display at the top of the widget. This is an integer number of characters from the begin- ning of the text buffer. The first character position is 0 (zero). cursor_position Specifies the position in the text at which the insert cursor is located. This is an integer number of characters from the begin- ning of the text buffer. The first character position is 0 (zero).

NAME
XmTextInsert -- A Text function that inserts a character string into a text string SYNOPSIS
#include <Xm/Text.h> void XmTextInsert( Widget widget, XmTextPosition position, char * value); DESCRIPTION
XmTextInsert inserts a character string into the text string in the Text widget. The character positions begin at 0 (zero) and are numbered sequentially from the beginning of the text. For example, to insert a string after the fourth character, the parameter position must be 4. This routine calls the widget's XmNvalueChangedCallback and verification callbacks, either XmNmodifyVerifyCallback or XmNmodifyVerifyCall- backWcs, or both. If both verification callback lists are registered, the procedures of the XmNmodifyVerifyCallback list are executed first and the resulting data is passed to the XmNmodifyVerifyCallbackWcs callbacks. If the XmNcursorPosition resource is greater than or is the same value as position, the XmNmotionVerifyCallback is called. Note that, if value is a null string, no callbacks will be generated, since no modifications will have been made. widget Specifies the Text widget ID. position Specifies the position in the text string where the character string is to be inserted. value Specifies the character string value to be added to the text widget. For a complete definition of Text and its associated resources, see XmText(3). RELATED
