Motif 2.1 Programmer's Reference


The ApplicationShell widget class


#include <Xm/Xm.h>
#include <X11/Shell.h>


ApplicationShell is used as the main top-level window for an application. An application should have more than one ApplicationShell only if it implements multiple logical applications.


ApplicationShell inherits behavior and resources from Core, Composite, Shell, WMShell, VendorShell, and TopLevelShell.

The class pointer is applicationShellWidgetClass.

The class name is ApplicationShell.

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).

ApplicationShell Resource Set
Name Class Type Default Access
XmNargc XmCArgc int 0 CSG
XmNargv XmCArgv String * NULL CSG

Specifies the number of arguments given in the XmNargv resource. The function XtInitialize sets this resource on the shell widget instance it creates by using its parameters as the values.

Specifies the argument list required by a session manager to restart the application if it is killed. This list should be updated at appropriate points by the application if a new state has been reached that can be directly restarted. The function XtInitialize sets this resource on the shell widget instance it creates by using its parameters as the values. When XtGetValues is called on this resource, the returned value is a pointer to the actual resource value and should not be freed.

Inherited Resources

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