XmScaleSetTicks — A Scale function that controls tick marks

Synopsis

#include <Xm/Scale.h>
void XmScaleSetTicks(
Widget scale,
int big_every,
Cardinal num_medium,
Cardinal num_small,
Dimension size_big,
Dimension size_medium,
Dimension size_small);

Description

XmScaleSetTicks controls the number, location, and size of the tick marks on a Scale. Each tick mark is a SeparatorGadget oriented perpendicular to the Scale's orientation. For example, if the Scale is oriented horizontally, the tick marks will be oriented vertically.

If you specify tick marks for a Scale and then change the Scale's orientation, you will have to do the following:

  ·

Remove all the tick marks. To remove tick marks from a Scale, you must destroy (with XtDestroyChildren) the SeparatorGadget tick marks. The first two children of a Scale are its title and scroll bar, and all additional children are tick marks.

  ·

Recreate the tick marks by calling XmScaleSetTicks.
