Motif 2.1 Widget Writer's Guide


This guide is aimed at experienced programmers who wish to write their own Motif widgets.

The ideal reader will have as prerequisite some experience writing Intrinsics-based widgets. Failing that, the reader must have at least a general understanding of the X Window System, plus a good grasp of Xlib and Xt. The reader should also understand Motif programming topics such as resources, actions, and keyboard traversal. Finally, the more the reader understands about object-oriented programming, the better.

This guide assumes that the reader is familiar with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C programming language or with the C++ programming language.
