MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy(library call) MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy(library call)
MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy -- Registers the values associated with the names referenced
in UIL within a single hierarchy (for example, UIL callback function names or UIL identi-
The MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy 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 information provides any run-time mapping the application needs.
This function is similar to MrmRegisterNames, except that the scope of the names regis-
tered by MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy is limited to the hierarchy specified by hierar-
chy_id, 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 registered glob-
Specifies the hierarchy with which the names are to be associated.
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 MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy 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
