XtCreatePopupShell(3)			   XT FUNCTIONS 		    XtCreatePopupShell(3)

NAME
       XtCreatePopupShell, XtVaCreatePopupShell - create a popup shell

SYNTAX
       Widget XtCreatePopupShell(String name, WidgetClass widget_class, Widget parent, ArgList
	      args, Cardinal num_args);

       Widget XtVaCreatePopupShell(String name, WidgetClass widget_class, Widget parent, ...);

ARGUMENTS
       args	 Specifies the argument list to override the resource defaults.

       name	 Specifies the text name for the created shell widget.

       num_args  Specifies the number of arguments in the argument list.

       parent	 Specifies the parent widget.

       widget_class
		 Specifies the widget class pointer for the created shell widget.

       ...	 Specifies the variable argument list to override the resource defaults.

DESCRIPTION
       The XtCreatePopupShell function ensures that the specified class is a subclass of Shell
       and, rather than using insert_child to attach the widget to the parent's children list,
       attaches the shell to the parent's pop-ups list directly.

       A spring-loaded pop-up invoked from a translation table already must exist at the time
       that the translation is invoked, so the translation manager can find the shell by name.
       Pop-ups invoked in other ways can be created ``on-the-fly'' when the pop-up actually is
       needed.	This delayed creation of the shell is particularly useful when you pop up an
       unspecified number of pop-ups.  You can look to see if an appropriate unused shell (that
       is, not currently popped up) exists and create a new shell if needed.
