NAME

       Traits — Lists the traits used by the Motif Toolkit.

DESCRIPTION

       A  trait is a characteristic of a widget. A widget holding a particular
       trait is  announcing  a  particular  ability  to  other  widgets.   The
       following table summarizes the standard Motif traits.

       Traits are not often used  in  Motif  application  programs.   However,
       traits  are  very important to widget writers.  For complete details on
       traits, see the Motif Widget Writers Guide.

       The following table lists the names of all widgets and gadgets  in  the
       standard  Motif  widget set that hold a particular trait.  For example,
       the following table shows that the XmQTcontainerItem trait is  held  by
       the  XmIconGadget.  As the table suggests, some traits are held by many
       of the standard Motif widgets.

       The  following  table  lists  the traits installed on each widget.  For
       example, the following table indicates that  the  XmArrowButton  widget
       holds both the XmQTactivatable and XmQTcareParentVisual traits.

       The following table summarizes how the standard  Motif  widgets  access
       traits. There are two general ways for a widget to access the traits of
       another widget.

       One way is for a widget to ask another widget if it holds a  particular
       trait.   For example, XmBulletinBoard asks each of its children widgets
       if they hold the XmQTtakesDefault trait.  XmBulletinBoard calls none of
       the trait methods of XmQTtakesDefault.

       Another  kind of access is when one widget calls another widget’s trait
       method(s).  For example, XmBulletinBoard calls the getRenderTable trait
       method of the XmQTspecifyRenderTable trait.
