Chapter 8. Scrolling, Panes, Frames, Containers, and Notebooks

Chapters 6 and 7 discuss the Motif Manager widgets used to construct menus and dialogs. Motif also provides more general-purpose managers intended for use in main application windows and some dialogs. This chapter discusses widgets that perform the following functions:

  1. Establishing a viewport for a larger underlying scroll

  2. Providing a main application window with a combination of standard and custom components

  3. Presenting information about objects to users using different views

  4. Organizing child widgets as either a page or component to access or describe pages

  5. Placing a shadowed frame around a widget and an optional title at the top

  6. Creating multiple subwindows for a composite with adjustable boundaries between the subwindows
