XmFontListInitFontContext — A font list function that allows applications to access the entries in a font list


#include <Xm/Xm.h>
Boolean XmFontListInitFontContext(
XmFontContext *context,
XmFontList fontlist);


XmFontListInitFontContext establishes a context to allow applications to access the contents of a font list. This context is used when reading the font list entry tag, font, or font set associated with each entry in the font list. A Boolean status is returned to indicate whether or not the font list is valid.

If an application deallocates the font list passed to XmFontListInitFontContext as the fontlist argument, the context established by this function is rendered no longer valid.


Specifies a pointer to the allocated context


Specifies the font list


Returns True if the context was allocated; otherwise, returns False. If the function allocated a context, the application is responsible for managing the allocated space. The application can recover the allocated space by calling XmFontListFreeFontContext.
