XmTabListCopy — A convenience function that creates a new tab list from an existing list


#include <Xm/Xm.h>
XmTabList XmTabListCopy(
XmTabList tablist,
int offset,
Cardinal count);


XmTabListCopy creates a new tab list consisting of a copy of a portion of the contents of the tablist argument. This function starts copying at the specified offset value of the tab list and copies count values.

Specifies a tab list to be copied.
Specifies where to start copying. A value of 0 (zero) indicates begin at the beginning, a value of 1 indicates to skip the first tab, and so on. A negative indicates to begin counting backwards from the end. A value of -1 indicates to start copying from the last tab.
Specifies the number of tabs to copy. A value of 0 (zero) indicates to copy all elements from the starting point to the end (beginning if offset is negative) of the tab list.


If tablist is NULL, this function returns NULL. Otherwise, this function returns a newly allocated XmTabList. If the function does allocate an XmTabList, then the application is responsible for managing the allocated space. The application can recover the allocated space by calling XmTabListFree.
