XmTextSetSource(library call)					    XmTextSetSource(library call)

NAME
       XmTextSetSource -- A Text function that sets the source of the widget

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Xm/Text.h>
       void XmTextSetSource(
       Widget widget,
       XmTextSource source,
       XmTextPosition top_character,
       XmTextPosition cursor_position);

DESCRIPTION
       XmTextSetSource sets the source of the Text widget. Text widgets can share sources of text
       so that editing in one widget is reflected in another. This function sets  the  source  of
       one widget so that it can share the source of another widget.

       Setting	a new text source destroys the old text source if no other Text widgets are using
       that source.  To replace a text source but keep it for later use, create an unmanaged Text
       widget and set its source to the text source you want to keep.

       widget	 Specifies the Text widget ID.

       source	 Specifies  the  source  with which the widget displays text. This can be a value
		 returned by the XmTextGetSource(3) function. If no source is specified, the wid-
		 get creates a default string source.

       top_character
		 Specifies the position in the text to display at the top of the widget.  This is
		 an integer number of characters from the beginning of the text buffer. The first
		 character position is 0 (zero).

       cursor_position
		 Specifies  the  position in the text at which the insert cursor is located. This
		 is an integer number of characters from the beginning of the  text  buffer.  The
		 first character position is 0 (zero).

       For a complete definition of Text and its associated resources, see XmText(3).
