XmVaCreateSimpleCheckBox -- A RowColumn widget convenience creation function
XmVaCreateSimpleCheckBox creates an instance of a RowColumn widget of type XmWORK_AREA and returns the associated widget ID. This routine
uses the ANSI C variable-length argument list (varargs) calling convention.
This routine creates a CheckBox and its ToggleButtonGadget children. A CheckBox is similar to a RadioBox, except that more than one button
can be selected at a time. The name of each button is button_n, where n is an integer from 0 (zero) to the number of buttons in the menu
minus 1. Buttons are named and created in the order in which they are specified in the variable portion of the argument list.
parent Specifies the parent widget ID.
name Specifies the name of the created widget.
callback Specifies a callback procedure to be called when a button's value changes. This callback function is added to each button after
creation as the button's XmNvalueChangedCallback. The callback function is called when a button's value changes, and the button
number is returned in the client_data field.
The variable portion of the argument list consists of groups of arguments. The first argument in each group is a constant or a string and
determines which arguments follow in that group. The last argument in the list must be NULL. The following list describes the possible
first arguments in each group of varargs:
This is followed by four additional arguments. The set specifies one button in the CheckBox and some of its resource values. The
following list describes the additional four arguments, in order.
label The label string, of type XmString
mnemonic The mnemonic, of type KeySym. This is ignored in this release.
The accelerator, of type String. This is ignored in this release.
The accelerator text, of type XmString. This is ignored in this release.
This is followed by one additional argument, the value of the resource, of type XtArgVal. The pair specifies a resource and its
value for the RowColumn widget.
This is followed by four additional arguments. The set specifies a resource and its value for the RowColumn widget. A resource
type conversion is performed if necessary. Following are the additional four arguments, in order:
name The resource name, of type String
type The type of the resource value supplied, of type String
value The resource value (or a pointer to the resource value, depending on the type and size of the value), of type XtArgVal
size The size of the resource value in bytes, of type int
This is followed by one additional argument of type XtVarArgsList. This argument is a nested list of varargs returned by XtVaCre-

A number of resources exist specifically for use with this and other simple menu creation routines. For a complete definition of RowColumn
and its associated resources, see XmRowColumn(3).
Returns the RowColumn widget ID.
