Tells the application program to create an auxiliary area.
int IMAuxCreate(IM, AuxiliaryID, UData) IMObject IM; caddr_t *AuxiliaryID; caddr_t UData;
The IMAuxCreate subroutine is invoked by the input method of the operating system to create an auxiliary area. The auxiliary area can contain several different forms of data and is not restricted by the interface.
Most input methods display one auxiliary area at a time, but callbacks must be capable of handling multiple auxiliary areas.
|IM||Indicates the input method instance.|
|AuxiliaryID||Identifies the newly created auxiliary area.|
|UData||Identifies an argument passed by the IMCreate subroutine.|
On successful return of the IMAuxCreate subroutine, a newly created auxiliary area is set to the AuxiliaryID value and the IMError global variable is returned. Otherwise, the IMNoError value is returned.
This subroutine is provided by applications that use input methods.
