NAME

       XmRenderTable — Data type for a render table

SYNOPSIS

       #include <Xm/Xm.h>
       XmRenderTable

DESCRIPTION

       XmRenderTable  is  the  data type for a render table, which contains a table of renditions
       (XmRenditions). Each rendition consists  of  a  set  of  attributes  for  rendering  text,
       including a font or fontset, colors, tabs, and lines.  Each rendition is identified with a
       tag.

       When a compound string is displayed, for each segment in the string, the rendition used to
       render  that  string is formed as follows. If the segment has at least one rendition begin
       tag or if the list of tags formed by accumulating from  previous  segments  the  rendition
       begin  tags  and removing the rendition end tags is not empty, these tags are matched with
       renditions in the render table. The effective rendition used  to  render  the  segment  is
       formed  by  successively merging each rendition found into the current rendition with non-
       XmAS_IS (XmUNSPECIFIED_PIXEL for color resources) values for resources in the rendition to
       be  merged,  thus  replacing  the  corresponding  values  of  the resources in the current
       rendition. Finally, if the resulting rendition still has resources with unspecified values
       and  the  segment  has a locale or charset tag (these are optional and mutually exclusive)
       this tag is matched with a rendition in the render table, and the missing rendition values
       are filled in from that entry.

       If no matching rendition is found for a particular tag, then the XmNnoRenditionCallback of
       the XmDisplay object is called and the render table is searched again for that tag.

       If the resulting rendition does not specify a font or fontset,  then  for  segments  whose
       text type is XmCHARSET_TEXT, the render table will be searched for a rendition tagged with
       XmFONTLIST_DEFAULT_TAG, and if a matching rendition is found, it will be merged  into  the
       current   rendition.  If  the  resulting  rendition  contains  no  font  or  fontset,  the
       XmNnoFontCallback will be called with the default rendition and "" as the font name. If no
       rendition matches or no font was found after the callback, then the first rendition in the
       render table will be merged into the current rendition. If this  rendition  still  has  no
       font, then the segment will not be rendered and a warning will be emitted.

       For segments whose text type is XmMULTIBYTE_TEXT or XmWIDECHAR_TEXT, the render table will
       be searched for  a  rendition  tagged  with  _MOTIF_DEFAULT_LOCALE,  and,  if  a  matching
       rendition  is  found,  it  will  be  merged  into  the current rendition. If the resulting
       rendition contains no  font,  the  XmNnoFontCallback  will  be  called  with  the  default
       rendition  and  ""  as  the  font  name.  An application can have this callback attempt to
       remedy this problem by calling XmRenditionUpdate on the input rendition to provide a  font
       for the widget to use. This may be done by either providing an alternative font name to be
       loaded using the XmNfontName and XmNfontType resources or  with  an  already  loaded  font
       using  the  XmNfont  resource.   If  no  rendition  matches or no font was found after the
       callback, then the segment will not be rendered and a warning will be issued.

       Render tables are specified in resource files with the following syntax:

       resource_spec: [ tag [, tag ]* ]

       where tag is some string suitable for the XmNtag resource of a rendition.

       If no tags are specified, then a render table will be created  that  is  either  empty  or
       contains only a rendition with a tag of _MOTIF_DEFAULT_LOCALE.

       Specific values for specific rendition resources are specified using the following syntax:

       resource_spec [*|.] rendition[*|.] resource_name: value

       where:

       resource_spec
                 Specifies the render table.

       rendition Is either the class Rendition or a tag.

       resource_name
                 Is either the class or name of a particular resource.

       value     Is the specification of the value to be set.

       Any  resource  line  that  consists  of  just  a  resource name or class component with no
       rendition component or loose binding will be assumed to  specify  resource  values  for  a
       rendition with a tag of _MOTIF_DEFAULT_LOCALE. In effect, this creates a default rendition
       in much the same way that specifying no fontlist tag for a fontlist  resource  causes  the
       fontlist created to contain an entry tagged with XmFONTLIST_DEFAULT_TAG:

       resource_spec.resource_name: value

       For  example,  the  following  would set the XmNrenderTable resource of label1 to a render
       table consisting of three renditions tagged with _MOTIF_DEFAULT_LOCALE, bold, and oblique,
       with values for resources set as described in the resource specifications.

       *label1.renderTable: bold, oblique
       *label1.renderTable.bold.renditionForeground: Green
       *label1.renderTable.bold.fontName: *-*-*-bold-*-iso8859-1
       *label1.renderTable.bold.fontType: FONT_IS_FONT
       *label1.renderTable.oblique.renditionBackground: Red
       *label1.renderTable.oblique.fontName: *-*-*-italic-*-iso8859-1
       *label1.renderTable.oblique.fontType: FONT_IS_FONT
       *label1.renderTable.oblique.underlineType: AS_IS
       *label1.renderTable.fontName: fixed
       *label1.renderTable.fontType: FONT_IS_FONT
       *label1.renderTable.renditionForegound: black
       *label1.renderTable*tabList: 1in, +1.5in, +3in
