XtOffset(3Xt)							     MIT X11R4							     XtOffset(3Xt)

Name
       XtOffset, XtNumber - determine the byte offset or number of array elements

Syntax
       Cardinal XtOffset(pointer_type, field_name)
	  Type pointer_type;
	  Field field_name;

       Cardinal XtNumber(array)
	  ArrayVariable array;

Arguments
       array	 Specifies a fixed-size array.

       field_name
		 Specifies the name of the field for which to calculate the byte offset.

       pointer_type
		 Specifies a type that is declared as a pointer to the structure.

Description
       The macro is usually used to determine the offset of various resource fields from the beginning of a widget and can be used at compile time
       in static initializations.

       The macro returns the number of elements in the specified argument lists, resources lists, and other counted arrays.

NAME
XtOffset, XtOffsetOf, XtNumber - determine the byte offset or number of array elements SYNTAX
Cardinal XtOffset(pointer_type, field_name) Type pointer_type; Field field_name; Cardinal XtOffsetOf(structure_type, field_name) Type structure_type; Field field_name; Cardinal XtNumber(array) ArrayVariable array; ARGUMENTS
array Specifies a fixed-size array. field_name Specifies the name of the field for which to calculate the byte offset. pointer_type Specifies a type that is declared as a pointer to the structure. structure_type Specifies a type that is declared as a structure. DESCRIPTION
The XtOffset macro is usually used to determine the offset of various resource fields from the beginning of a widget and can be used at compile time in static initializations. The XtOffsetOf macro expands to a constant expression that gives the offset in bytes to the specified structure member rom the beginning of the structure. It is normally used to statically initialize resource lists and is more portable than XtOffset, which serves the same func- tion. The XtNumber macro returns the number of elements in the specified argument lists, resources lists, and other counted arrays. SEE ALSO
