       XmRowColumn — The RowColumn widget class "XmRowColumn" "widget class" "RowColumn"


       #include <Xm/RowColumn.h>


       The  RowColumn  widget  is  a  general purpose RowColumn manager capable of containing any
       widget type as a child.  In general, it  requires  no  special  knowledge  about  how  its
       children function and provides nothing beyond support for several different layout styles.
       However, it can be configured as a menu, in which case, it expects only certain  children,
       and  it  configures  to  a particular layout. The menus supported are MenuBar, Pulldown or
       Popup menu panes, and OptionMenu.  RowColumn uses the XmQTmenuSavvy trait  and  holds  the
       XmQTmenuSystem trait.

       The  type  of  layout  performed  is controlled by how the application has set the various
       layout resources.  It can be configured to lay out its children in either rows or columns.
       In addition, the application can specify how the children are laid out, as follows:

          ·  The children are packed tightly together into either rows or columns

          ·  Each child is placed in an identically sized box (producing a symmetrical look)

          ·  A  specific  layout  (the  current  x  and y positions of the children control their

       In addition, the application has control over both the spacing that  occurs  between  each
       row  and  column  and the margin spacing present between the edges of the RowColumn widget
       and any children that are placed against it.

       The  default  XmNinsertPosition  procedure  for  the  RowColumn  returns  the   value   of
       XmNpositionIndex  if  one  has  been  specified  for  the child. Otherwise, this procedure
       returns the number of children in the RowColumn's  XmNnumChildren  list.   In  a  MenuBar,
       Pulldown  menu pane, or Popup menu pane the default for the XmNshadowThickness resource is
       2.  In an OptionMenu or a WorkArea, (such as a RadioBox or CheckBox) this resource is  not
       applicable  and  its  use  is  undefined.   If an application wishes to place a 3-D shadow
       around an OptionMenu or WorkArea, it can create the  RowColumn  as  a  child  of  a  Frame

       In a MenuBar, Pulldown menu pane, or Popup menu pane the XmNnavigationType resource is not
       applicable and its use is undefined.  In a WorkArea, the default for XmNnavigationType  is
       XmTAB_GROUP.  In an OptionMenu the default for XmNnavigationType is XmNONE.

       In  a  MenuBar,  Pulldown menu pane, or Popup menu pane the XmNtraversalOn resource is not
       applicable and its use is undefined.  In  an  OptionMenu  or  WorkArea,  the  default  for
       XmNtraversalOn is True.

       If the parent of the RowColumn is a MenuShell, the XmNmappedWhenManaged resource is forced
       to False when the widget is realized.

       The user can specify resources in a resource file for the  automatically  created  widgets
       and gadgets of an OptionMenu. The following list identifies the names of these widgets (or
       gadgets) and the associated OptionMenu areas.

       Option Menu Label Gadget

       Option Menu Cascade Button

       For the Popup and Pulldown Menupanes, popup and pulldown menus have  particular  behaviors
       when the <Btn1> button is pressed outside the menus. These behaviors are summarized here.

       When there is already a popped up menu, a user can either press <Btn1> in the same area as
       the popped up menu, or can press <Btn1> in another area that should have a menu popped up.
       When  <Btn1>  is  pressed  in  the  same  area as the already popped up menu, that menu is
       unposted.  If <Btn1> is pressed in a different area, the associated popup menu  is  posted
       for  the  new area. Note, however, that if the XmNpopupHandlerCallback of either XmManager
       or XmPrimitive is available, then the callback may override these default behaviors.

       For pulldown menus, a user can press <Btn1> on the Cascade button  to  post  the  pulldown
       menu, then click on it again. Upon the second click, the pulldown menu is unposted.

       Popup menus are not allowed to have NULL parents.

   Tear-off Menus
       Pulldown  and  Popup  menu panes support tear-off menus, which enable the user to retain a
       menu pane on the display to facilitate subsequent menu selections. A menu pane that can be
       torn-off  is  identified  by  a  tear-off button that spans the width of the menu pane and
       displays a dashed line. A torn-off menu pane contains a window manager  system  menu  icon
       and  a title bar. The window title displays the label of the cascade button that initiated
       the action when the label type is XmSTRING. If the label  contains  a  pixmap  the  window
       title  is  empty.  A  tear-off  menu  from a Popup menu pane also displays an empty title.
       Tear-off menus should not be shared.

       The user can tear off a menu pane  using  the  mouse  or  keyboard.   Clicking  <Btn1>  or
       pressing <osfActivate> (or <osfSelect>) on the tear-off button, tears off the menu pane at
       the current position. Pressing <Btn2> on the tear-off button tears off the menu  pane  and
       allows  the  user  to drag the torn-off menu to a new position designated by releasing the
       mouse button. Tearing off a menu pane unposts the current active menu. Only  one  tear-off
       copy for each menu pane is allowed. Subsequent tear-off actions of a torn menu pane unpost
       the existing copy first.

       The name of the tear-off button of a torn-off menu pane is TearOffControl. The name can be
       used  to  set  resources  in  a resource file. An application can also obtain the tear-off
       button  itself  using  XmGetTearOffControl  and  then  set  resource  values  by   calling

       The  tear-off button has Separator-like behavior. Its appearance can be specified with the
       following    tear-off    button     resources:     XmNbackground,     XmNbackgroundPixmap,
       XmNbottomShadowColor,     XmNforeground,     XmNheight,    XmNmargin,    XmNseparatorType,
       XmNshadowThickness, and XmNtopShadowColor. Refer to the XmSeparator reference page  for  a
       complete description of each of these resources.

       The  XmNtearOffModel, XmNtearOffMenuActivateCallback, and XmNtearOffMenuDeactivateCallback
       are RowColumn resources that affect tear-off menu behavior.  The XmNtearOffTitle  resource
       enables the application to specify the tear-off menu's title if the menu is torn off.

       By   default,   menus   do   not   tear  off.  Setting  the  XmNtearOffModel  resource  to
       XmTEAR_OFF_ENABLED  enables  tear-off  functionality.   There  is  no  resource  converter
       preregistered  for  XmNtearOffModel. To allow tear-off functionality to be enabled through
       the resource database, call the function XmRepTypeInstallTearOffModelConverter.

       Tear-off menu focus policy follows standard window manager policy. It is recommended  that
       the startupKeyFocus and autoKeyFocus mwm resources be set to True.

       RowColumn  automatically  creates  the  descendants  shown  in  the  following  table.  An
       application can use XtNameToWidget to gain access to the named descendant. In addition,  a
       user or an application can use the named descendant when specifying resource values.

       RowColumn inherits behavior, resources, and traits from Core, Composite,  Constraint,  and
       XmManager classes.

       The class pointer is xmRowColumnWidgetClass.

       The class name is XmRowColumn.

   New Resources
       The  following  table  defines a set of widget resources used by the programmer to specify
       data. The programmer can also set the resource values for the  inherited  classes  to  set
       attributes  for  this  widget. To reference a resource by name or by class in a .Xdefaults
       file, remove the XmN or XmC prefix and use the remaining letters. To specify  one  of  the
       defined  values  for  a  resource  in  a .Xdefaults file, remove the Xm prefix and use the
       remaining letters (in either lowercase or uppercase, but include any  underscores  between
       words).   The  codes  in  the  access  column indicate if the given resource can be set at
       creation time (C), set by using XtSetValues (S), retrieved by using XtGetValues (G), or is
       not applicable (N/A).
