MrmRegisterNames






MrmRegisterNames — Registers the values associated with the
names referenced in UIL (for example, UIL callback function
names or UIL identifier names)



     #include <Mrm/MrmPublic.h>
Cardinal MrmRegisterNames(
MrmRegisterArglist register_list,
MrmCount register_count);



     The MrmRegisterNames function registers a vector of
names and associated values for access in MRM.  The values
can be callback functions, pointers to user‐defined data, or
any other values.  The information provided is used to
resolve symbolic references occurring in UID files to their
run‐time values.  For callbacks, this information provides
the procedure address required by the Motif Toolkit.  For
names used as identifiers in UIL, this information provides
any run‐time mapping the application needs.

     This function is similar to
MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy, except that the scope of the
names registered by MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy is limited
to the hierarchy specified in the call to that function,
whereas the names registered by MrmRegisterNames have global
scope.  When MRM looks up a name, it first tries to find the
name among those registered for the given hierarchy.  If
that lookup fails, it tries to find the name among those
registered globally.

register_list
          Specifies a list of name/value pairs for the names
          to be registered.  Each name is a case‐sensitive,
          NULL‐terminated ASCII string.  Each value is a
          32‐bit quantity, interpreted as a procedure
          address if the name is a callback function, and
          uninterpreted otherwise.

register_count
          Specifies the number of entries in register_list.

     The names in the list are case‐sensitive.  The list can
be either ordered or unordered.

     Callback functions registered through MrmRegisterNames
can be either regular or creation callbacks.  Regular
callbacks have declarations determined by Motif Toolkit and
user requirements.  Creation callbacks have the same format
as any other callback:











                             ‐2‐


     void CallBackProc(
Widget *widget_id,
Opaque tag,
XmAnyCallbackStruct *callback_data);

widget_id Specifies the widget ID associated with the widget
          performing the callback (as in any callback
          function).

tag       Specifies the tag value (as in any callback
          function).

callback_data
          Specifies a widget‐specific data structure.  This
          data structure has a minimum of two members: event
          and reason.  The reason member is always set to
          MrmCR_CREATE.

     Note that the widget name and parent are available from
the widget record accessible through widget_id.



     This function returns one of the following status
return constants:

MrmSUCCESS
          The function executed successfully.

MrmFAILURE
          The function failed.
