XmCreateSimpleCheckBox creates an instance of a RowColumn widget of type XmWORK_AREA and returns the associated widget ID.

This routine creates a CheckBox and its ToggleButtonGadget children. A CheckBox is similar to a RadioBox, except that more than one button can be selected at a time. The name of each button is button_ n, where n is an integer from 0 (zero) to the number of buttons in the menu minus 1. Buttons are named and created in the order they are specified in the RowColumn simple menu creation resources supplied in the argument list.
