XmStringToXmStringTable - Man Page

A convenience function that converts a single compound string to a table of compound strings


#include <Xm/Xm.h>
Cardinal XmStringToXmStringTable(
XmString string,
XmString break_component,
XmStringTable *table);


XmStringToXmStringTable takes as input a single compound string and a specified string component (such as a tab) and returns a table of compound strings consisting of portions of string delimited by components matching break_component. The components marking breaks will not appear in the resulting table.


Specifies the XmString to be converted.


Specifies the XmStringComponent that will be used to indicate where to split string to form the individual elements of table. The most useful types will be XmSTRING_COMPONENT_SEPARATOR and XmSTRING_COMPONENT_TAB. Refer to the XmStringComponentType(3) reference page for a complete list of possible component types. Note, however, that the XmSTRING_COMPONENT_UNKNOWN component is not a possible type.


Returns the equivalent XmStringTable. The function will allocate space to hold the returned XmStringTable. When the applicaiton no longer needs the returned XmStringTable, the application should call XmStringFree once for each compound string in the table, and then calling XtFree to deallocate the XmStringTable itself.


Returns the number of compound strings in table.
