XmDirectionToStringDirection






XmDirectionToStringDirection — A function that converts an XmDirection value to
an XmStringDirection value



     #include <Xm/Xm.h>
XmStringDirection XmDirectionToStringDirection (dir)
        XmDirection     dir;
(void)



     XmDirectionToStringDirection converts the specified XmDirection direction
value to its equivalent XmStringDirection value.  Basically, if the XmDirection
value has a horizontal direction specification, that horizontal element is used;
otherwise, the XmStringDirection value is interpreted as
XmSTRING_DIRECTION_L_TO_R.  This function provides backward compatibility with
the XmStringDirection data type.

     Note that the Motif toolkit also contains an XmStringDirectionToDirection
routine to convert an XmStringDirection value to its XmDirection equivalent.

dir       Specifies the XmDirection value to be converted.



     Returns the following XmStringDirection values:

XmSTRING_DIRECTION_R_TO_L
          If the dir argument has a right to left horizontal direction value in
          it, for example XmRIGHT_TO_LEFT_TOP_TO_BOTTOM.

XmSTRING_DIRECTION_L_TO_R
          If the dir argument has a left to right horizontal direction in it,
          for example XmLEFT_TO_RIGHT_TOP_TO_BOTTOM, or if the horizontal
          direction value in the dir argument is ambiguous, such as in the
          XmTOP_TO_BOTTOM value.

XmSTRING_DIRECTION_DEFAULT
          If there was no horizontal direction specified.
