XmStringTableProposeTablist(library call)		XmStringTableProposeTablist(library call)

NAME
       XmStringTableProposeTablist -- A convenience function that returns a tab list

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Xm/Xm.h>
       XmTabList XmStringTableProposeTablist(
       XmStringTable strings,
       Cardinal num_strings,
       Widget widget,
       float pad_value,
       XmOffsetModel offset_model);

DESCRIPTION
       XmStringTableProposeTablist  takes  an  XmStringTable structure containing tabbed compound
       strings, information on padding between columns, and rendering information and  returns	a
       tab list that, if used to render the strings in the table, would cause the strings to line
       up in columns with no overlap and with the specified amount of padding between the  widest
       item  in  each column and the start of the next column. Each tab in the tablist would have
       the same unit type as units, an offset model of offset_model, and  an  alignment  type  of
       XmALIGNMENT_BEGINNING.

       strings	 Specifies an array of compound strings.

       num_strings
		 Specifies the number of compound strings in strings.

       widget	 Specifies  the  widget  used for deriving any necessary information for creating
		 the rendition. In particular, the XmNunitType of widget will be used to  specify
		 the unit type to be used in determining the amount of padding separating columns
		 and for the tabs in the proposed tab list. Also, widget's render table  will  be
		 used in interpreting rendition tags within the strings.

       pad_value Specifies  the  value	of  the amount of padding to be used to separate columns.
		 The units for this parameter are specified as the XmNunitType set for the widget
		 parameter.   Refer  to  the  XmNunitType resource of the XmGadget, XmManager, or
		 XmPrimitive reference page.

       offset_model
		 Specifies the offset model to be used in creating the tabs. Can be XmABSOLUTE or
		 XmRELATIVE.

RETURN
       Returns a new XmTabList.  The function allocates space to hold the returned tab list.  The
       application is responsible for managing the allocated space.  The application can  recover
       the allocated space by calling XmTabListFree.
