XmFontListEntryLoad -- A font list function that loads a font or creates a font set and creates an accompany- ing font list entry
#include <Xm/Xm.h> XmFontListEntry XmFontListEntryLoad( Display *display, char *font_name, XmFontType type, char *tag);
XmFontListEntryLoad loads a font or creates a font set based on the value of the type argument. It creates and returns a font list entry that contains the font or font set and the specified tag. If the value of type is XmFONT_IS_FONT, the function uses the XtCvtStringToFontStruct routine to convert the value of font_name to a font struct. If the value of type is XmFONT_IS_FONTSET, the function uses the XtCvt- StringToFontSet converter to create a font set in the current locale. XmFontListEntryLoad creates a font list entry that contains the font or font set derived from the converter. For more information about XtCvt- StringToFontStruct and XtCvtStringToFontSet, see X Toolkit Intrinsics--C Language Interface. display Specifies the display where the font list will be used. font_name Specifies an X Logical Font Description (XLFD) string, which is interpreted either as a font name or as a base font name list. A base font name list is a comma-separated and NULL-terminated string. type Specifies whether the font_name argument refers to a font name or to a base font name list. Valid values are XmFONT_IS_FONT and XmFONT_IS_FONTSET. tag Specifies the tag of the font list entry to be created. The tag may be specified as XmFONTLIST_DEFAULT_TAG, which is used to identify the default font list element in a font list when specified as part of a resource.
If the specified font is not found, or if the specified font set cannot be created, then either an implementa- tion-defined font will be opened or a font set will be created, and a warning messge will be generated. If no suitable font can be found or a font set cannot be created, then another message will be generated and the function will return NULL; otherwise the function returns a font list entry. If the function returns a font list entry, the function allocates space to hold the font list entry. The application is responsible for man- aging the allocated space. The application can recover the allocated space by calling XmFontListEntryFree.
