OverrideShell — The OverrideShell widget class


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


OverrideShell is used for shell windows that completely bypass the window manager, for example, PopupMenu shells.


OverrideShell inherits behavior and resources from Core, Composite, and Shell.

The class pointer is overrideShellWidgetClass.

The class name is OverrideShell.

New Resources

OverrideShell defines no new resources, but overrides the XmNoverrideRedirect and XmNsaveUnder resources in the Shell class.

Inherited Resources

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

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).
