XmVaCreateSimpleOptionMenu(library call)		 XmVaCreateSimpleOptionMenu(library call)

NAME
       XmVaCreateSimpleOptionMenu -- A RowColumn widget convenience creation function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Xm/RowColumn.h>
       Widget XmVaCreateSimpleOptionMenu(
       Widget parent,
       String name,
       XmString option_label,
       KeySym option_mnemonic,
       int button_set,
       XtCallbackProc callback);

DESCRIPTION
       XmVaCreateSimpleOptionMenu creates an instance of a RowColumn widget of type XmMENU_OPTION
       and returns the associated widget ID.  This routine uses the ANSI C variable-length  argu-
       ment list (varargs) calling convention.

       This routine creates an OptionMenu and its Pulldown submenu containing PushButtonGadget or
       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.  The name of each separator is
       separator_n, where n is an integer from 0 (zero) to the number of separators in	the  menu
       minus  1.   Buttons  and  separators  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

       option_label
		 Specifies the label string to be used on the left side of the OptionMenu.

       option_mnemonic
		 Specifies a keysym for a key that, when pressed by the user, posts  the  associ-
		 ated Pulldown menu pane.

       button_set
		 Specifies  which  PushButtonGadget is initially set.  The value is the integer n
		 that corresponds to the nth PushButtonGadget specified in the	variable  portion
		 of  the argument list.  Only a PushButtonGadget can be set, and only PushButton-
		 Gadgets are counted in determining the integer n.  The first PushButtonGadget is
		 number 0 (zero).

       callback  Specifies  a  callback  procedure to be called when a button is activated.  This
		 callback function is added to each button after creation as the button's  XmNac-
		 tivateCallback.  The callback function is called when a button is activated, and
		 the button number is returned in the client_data field.

       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:

       XmVaPUSHBUTTON
		 This  is  followed by four additional arguments. The set specifies one button in
		 the OptionMenu's Pulldown submenu and some of its resource  values.  The  button
		 created  is  a PushButtonGadget. Following are the additional four arguments, in
		 order:

		 label	   The label string, of type XmString

		 mnemonic  The mnemonic, of type KeySym

		 accelerator
			   The accelerator, of type String

		 accelerator_text
			   The accelerator text, of type XmString

       XmVaSEPARATOR
		 This is followed by no additional arguments. It specifies one separator  in  the
		 OptionMenu's Pulldown submenu.

       XmVaDOUBLE_SEPARATOR
		 This  is  followed by no additional arguments. It specifies one separator in the
		 OptionMenu's Pulldown submenu. The separator type is XmDOUBLE_LINE.

       resource_name
		 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 Pulldown submenu.

       XtVaTypedArg
		 This  is followed by four additional arguments. The set specifies a resource and
		 its value for the Pulldown submenu. 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

       XtVaNestedList
		 This is followed by one additional argument of type XtVarArgsList.   This  argu-
		 ment is a nested list of varargs returned by XtVaCreateArgsList.

       The  user  can  specify resources in a resource file for the automatically created widgets
       and gadgets of an OptionMenu. The following list identifies the names of these widgets (or
       gadgets) and the associated OptionMenu areas:

       Option Menu Label Gadget
		 OptionLabel

       Option Menu Cascade Button
		 OptionButton

       For more information on variable-length argument lists, see the X Toolkit Intrinsics docu-
       mentation.

       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-
       Column(3).

RETURN
       Returns the RowColumn widget ID.
