MrmRegisterNames(library call) MrmRegisterNames(library call)
MrmRegisterNames -- Registers the values associated with the names referenced in UIL (for
example, UIL callback function names or UIL identifier names)
The MrmRegisterNames function registers a vector of names and associated values for access
in MRM. The values can be callback functions, pointers to user-defined data, or any other
values. The information provided is used to resolve symbolic references occurring in UID
files to their run-time values. For callbacks, this information provides the procedure
address required by the Motif Toolkit. For names used as identifiers in UIL, this infor-
mation provides any run-time mapping the application needs.
This function is similar to MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy, except that the scope of the
names registered by MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy is limited to the hierarchy specified in
the call to that function, whereas the names registered by MrmRegisterNames have global
scope. When MRM looks up a name, it first tries to find the name among those registered
for the given hierarchy. If that lookup fails, it tries to find the name among those reg-
Specifies a list of name/value pairs for the names to be registered. Each name
is a case-sensitive, NULL-terminated ASCII string. Each value is a 32-bit quan-
tity, interpreted as a procedure address if the name is a callback function, and
Specifies the number of entries in register_list.
The names in the list are case-sensitive. The list can be either ordered or unordered.
Callback functions registered through MrmRegisterNames can be either regular or creation
callbacks. Regular callbacks have declarations determined by Motif Toolkit and user
requirements. Creation callbacks have the same format as any other callback:
widget_id Specifies the widget ID associated with the widget performing the callback (as
in any callback function).
tag Specifies the tag value (as in any callback function).
Specifies a widget-specific data structure. This data structure has a minimum
of two members: event and reason. The reason member is always set to MrmCR_CRE-
Note that the widget name and parent are available from the widget record accessible
