XmConvertStringToUnits ā€” A function that converts a string specification to a unit value

Synopsis

#include <Xm/Xm.h>
int XmConvertStringToUnits(
Screen *screen,
String spec,
int orientation,
int to_type,
XtEnum *parse_error);

Description

XmConvertStringToUnits converts a string specification value and returns the converted value as the return value from the function. This function uses the specified screen's resolution to compute the number of units for the string specification.

screen

Specifies the screen whose resolution is to be used for the computation.

spec

Specifies the string, in <floating value><unit> format, to be converted.

orientation

Specifies whether the converter uses the horizontal or vertical screen resolution when performing the conversion. The orientation parameter can have values of XmHORIZONTAL or XmVERTICAL.

to_type

Converts the value to the unit type specified. Refer to the XmNunitType resource of the XmGadget, XmManager, or XmPrimitive reference page. This parameter can have one of the following values:

XmPIXELS

The returned value will be the number of pixels.

XmMILLIMETERS

The returned value will be the number of millimeters.

Xm100TH_MILLIMETERS

The returned values will be the number of 1/100 millimeters.

XmCENTIMETERS

The returned values will be the number of centimeters.

XmINCHES

The returned values will be the number of inches.

Xm1000TH_INCHES

The returned values will be the number of 1/100 inches.

XmPOINTS

The returned values will be the number of points. A point is a text processing unit defined as 1/72 of an inch.

Xm100TH_POINTS

The returned values will be the number of 1/100 points.

XmFONT_UNITS

All values provided to the widget are treated as font units. A font unit has horizontal and vertical components. These are the values of the XmScreen resources XmNhorizontalFontUnit and XmNverticalFontUnit.

Xm100TH_FONT_UNITS

All values provided to the widget are treated as 1/100 of a font unit. A font unit has horizontal and vertical components. These are the values of the XmScreen resources XmNhorizontalFontUnit and XmNverticalFontUnit.

parse_error

Specifies if a parsing error occurred. This is set to a value of True indicates that an error occurred, a value of False to indicate no error.

Return

Returns the converted value. If a NULL screen, incorrect orientation, or incorrect unit_type is supplied as parameter data, or if a parsing error occurred, 0 (zero) is returned.
