XmStringGenerate — A convenience function that generates a compound string


#include <Xm/Xm.h>
XmString XmStringGenerate(
XtPointer text,
XmStringTag tag,
XmTextType type,
XmStringTag rendition);


XmStringGenerate calls the XmStringParseText function with a default parse table of entries consisting of '0&', which maps to Separator, and ' ', which maps to Tab. Matching RENDITION_BEGIN and RENDITION_END components containing rendition are placed around the resulting XmString.

Specifies a NULL-terminated string containing characters of a type determined by type.
Specifies the tag to be used in creating the result. The type of tag created (charset or locale) depends on the text type and the value given. If specified value is NULL, and type indicates that a charset tag should be created, then the tag will have the value of XmFONTLIST_DEFAULT_TAG. If tag is NULL, and type indicates a locale tag, then the tag will have the value of _MOTIF_DEFAULT_LOCALE.
Specifies the type of text to be passed in, and the tag type. If a locale tag should be created, then type has a value of either XmMULTIBYTE_TEXT or XmWIDECHAR_TEXT. If a charset should be created, type has a value of XmCHARSET_TEXT.
Specifies the rendition tag to be used in an XmSTRING_COMPONENT_RENDITION_BEGIN component which will begin the returned string and in an XmSTRING_COMPONENT_RENDITION_END component which will end it. If rendition is NULL, no rendition tag is placed.


Returns a new compound string. The function will allocate space to hold the returned compound string. When the application no longer needs the returned compound string, the application should call XmStringFree.
