XmVaCreateSimpleMenuBar -- A RowColumn widget convenience creation function
XmVaCreateSimpleMenuBar creates an instance of a RowColumn widget of type XmMENU_BAR and
returns the associated widget ID. This routine uses the ANSI C variable-length argument
list (varargs) calling convention.
This routine creates a MenuBar and its CascadeButtonGadget children. The name of each
button is button_n, where n is an integer from 0 (zero) to the number of buttons in the
menu minus 1. Buttons are named and created in the order in which they are specified in
the variable portion of the argument list.
parent Specifies the parent widget ID
name Specifies the name of the created widget
The variable portion of the argument list consists of groups of arguments. The first
argument in each group is a constant or a string and determines which arguments follow in
that group. The last argument in the list must be NULL. Following are the possible first
arguments in each group of varargs:
This is followed by two additional arguments. The set specifies one button in
the MenuBar and some of its resource values. Following are the additional two
arguments, in order:
label The label string, of type XmString
mnemonic The mnemonic, of type KeySym
This is followed by one additional argument, the value of the resource, of type
XtArgVal. The pair specifies a resource and its value for the RowColumn widget.
This is followed by four additional arguments. The set specifies a resource and
its value for the RowColumn widget. A resource type conversion is performed if
necessary. Following are the additional four arguments, in order:
name The resource name, of type String
type The type of the resource value supplied, of type String
value The resource value (or a pointer to the resource value, depending on
the type and size of the value), of type XtArgVal
size The size of the resource value in bytes, of type int
This is followed by one additional argument of type XtVarArgsList. This argument
is a nested list of varargs returned by XtVaCreateArgsList.

A number of resources exist specifically for use with this and other simple menu creation
routines. For a complete definition of RowColumn and its associated resources, see XmRow-
Returns the RowColumn widget ID.
