NAME

XmSeparator - The Separator widget class  

SYNOPSIS

#include <Xm/Separator.h>


 

DESCRIPTION

Separator is a primitive widget that separates items in a display. Several different line drawing styles are provided, as well as horizontal or vertical orientation.

The Separator line drawing is automatically centered within the height of the widget for a horizontal orientation and centered within the width of the widget for a vertical orientation. An XtSetValues with a new XmNseparatorType resizes the widget to its minimal height (for horizontal orientation) or its minimal width (for vertical orientation) unless height or width is explicitly set in the XtSetValues call.

Separator does not draw shadows around the separator. The Primitive resource XmNshadowThickness is used for the Separator's thickness when XmNseparatorType is XmSHADOW_ETCHED_IN, XmSHADOW_ETCHED_IN_DASH, XmSHADOW_ETCHED_OUT, or XmSHADOW_ETCHED_OUT_DASH.

Separator does not highlight and allows no traversing. The primitive resource XmNtraversalOn is forced to False.

The XmNseparatorType of XmNO_LINE provides an escape to the application programmer who needs a different style of drawing. A pixmap the height of the widget can be created and used as the background pixmap by building an argument list using the XmNbackgroundPixmap argument type as defined by Core. Whenever the widget is redrawn, its background is displayed containing the desired separator drawing.
 

Classes

Separator inherits behavior and resources from Core and XmPrimitive Classes.

The class pointer is xmSeparatorWidgetClass.

The class name is XmSeparator.
 

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).

XmSeparator Resource Set

Class: XmCMargin Default: 0 Type: Dimension Access: CSG Class: XmCOrientation Default: XmHORIZONTAL Type: unsigned char Access: CSG Class: XmCSeparatorType Default: XmSHADOW_ETCHED_IN Type: unsigned char Access: CSG

For horizontal orientation, specifies the space on the left and right sides between the border of the Separator and the line drawn. For vertical orientation, specifies the space on the top and bottom between the border of the Separator and the line drawn. Displays Separator vertically or horizontally. This resource can have values of XmVERTICAL and XmHORIZONTAL. Specifies the type of line drawing to be done in the Separator widget. XmSINGLE_LINE--single line. XmDOUBLE_LINE--double line. XmSINGLE_DASHED_LINE--single-dashed line. XmDOUBLE_DASHED_LINE--double-dashed line. XmNO_LINE--no line. XmSHADOW_ETCHED_IN--a line whose shadows give the effect of a line etched into the window. The thickness of the line is equal to the value of XmNshadowThickness. For horizontal orientation, the top shadow is drawn in XmNtopShadowColor and the bottom shadow is drawn in XmNbottomShadowColor. For vertical orientation, the left edge is drawn in XmNtopShadowColor and the right edge is drawn in XmNbottomShadowColor. XmSHADOW_ETCHED_OUT--a line whose shadows give the effect of an etched line coming out of the window. The thickness of the line is equal to the value of XmNshadowThickness. For horizontal orientation, the top shadow is drawn in XmNbottomShadowColor and the bottom shadow is drawn in XmNtopShadowColor. For vertical orientation, the left edge is drawn in XmNbottomShadowColor and the right edge is drawn in XmNtopShadowColor. XmSHADOW_ETCHED_IN_DASH--identical to XmSHADOW_ETCHED_IN except a series of lines creates a dashed line. XmSHADOW_ETCHED_OUT_DASH--identical to XmSHADOW_ETCHED_OUT except a series of lines creates a dashed line.
 

Inherited Resources

Separator inherits behavior and resources from the following superclasses. For a complete description of each resource, refer to the man page for that superclass.
