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.
- Specifies the parent widget ID
- 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:
- The label string, of type XmString
- 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:
- The resource name, of type String
- The type of the resource value supplied, of type String
- The resource value (or a pointer to the resource value, depending on the type and size of the value), of type XtArgVal
- 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.
For more information on variable-length argument lists, see the X Toolkit Intrinsics documentation.
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 XmRowColumn(3).
Returns the RowColumn widget ID.
