A RowColumn widget convenience creation function
XmVaCreateSimpleCheckBox creates an instance of a RowColumn widget of type
XmWORK_AREA and returns the associated widget ID. This routine uses the ANSI C
variable-length argument list ( varargs) calling convention.
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_
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 in which they are
specified in the variable portion of the argument list.
parentSpecifies the parent widget ID.
nameSpecifies the name of the created widget.
callbackSpecifies a callback procedure to be called when a button's value
changes. This callback function is added to each button after creation as the
button's XmNvalueChangedCallback. The callback function is called when a
button's value changes, and the button number is returned in the
The variable portion of the argument list consists of groups of arguments.
The first argument in each group is a constant or a string and determines
which arguments follow in that group. The last argument in the list must be
NULL. The following list describes the possible first arguments in each group
XmVaCHECKBUTTONThis is followed by four additional arguments. The set specifies one
button in the CheckBox and some of its resource values. The following list
describes the additional four arguments, in order.
labelThe label string, of type XmString
mnemonicThe mnemonic, of type KeySym
. This is ignored in this release.
acceleratorThe accelerator, of type String. This is ignored in this release.
accelerator_textThe accelerator text, of type XmString. This is ignored in this release.
resource_nameThis is followed by one additional argument, the value of the resource, of
type XtArgVal. The pair specifies a resource and its value for the
XtVaTypedArgThis is followed by four additional arguments. The set specifies a
resource and its value for the RowColumn widget. A resource type conversion is
performed if necessary. Following are the additional four arguments, in
nameThe resource name, of type String
typeThe type of the resource value supplied, of type String
valueThe resource value (or a pointer to the resource value, depending on the
type and size of the value), of type XtArgVal
sizeThe size of the resource value in bytes, of type int
XtVaNestedListThis is followed by one additional argument of type XtVarArgsList. This
argument is a nested list of varargs returned by XtVaCreateArgsList.

A number of resources exist specifically for use with this and other simple
menu creation routines. For a complete definition of RowColumn and its
associated resources, see XmRowColumn
