XmTabListRemoveTabs(library call) XmTabListRemoveTabs(library call)
XmTabListRemoveTabs -- A convenience function that removes noncontiguous tabs
XmTabListRemoveTabs removes noncontiguous tabs from a tab list. The function creates a new tab list by copying the contents of oldlist and
removing all tabs whose corresponding positions appear in the position_list array. A warning message is displayed if a specified position
is invalid; for example, if the value is a number greater than the number of tabs in the tab list.
tablist Specifies the tab list. The function deallocates oldlist and the tabs it contains after extracting the required information.
Specifies an array of the tab positions to be removed. The position of the first tab in the list is 0 (zero), the position of the
second tab is 1, and so on.
Specifies the number of elements in the position_list.
If oldlist or position_list is NULL, or position_count is 0 (zero), returns oldlist. Otherwise, this function returns the new tab list.
The function allocates space to hold the returned tab list. The application is responsible for managing the allocated space. The applica-
tion can recover the allocated space by calling XmTabListFree.
