XmTabListReplacePositions — A convenience function that creates a new tab list with replacement tabs


#include <Xm/Xm.h>
XmTabList XmTabListReplacePositions(
XmTabList oldlist,
Cardinal *position_list,
XmTab *tabs,
Cardinal tab_count);


XmTabListReplacePositions creates a new tab list that contains the contents of oldlist, but with the tabs at the positions in position_list replaced with copies of the corresponding tabs in tabs. A warning message is displayed if a specified position is invalid; for example, if the value is a number greater than the number of tabs in the tab list.

This function deallocates the original tab list after extracting the required information. It is the caller's responsibility to free the tabs in tabs by using the XmTabFree function.

If tabs, oldlist, or position_list is NULL, or tab_count is 0 (zero), returns oldlist. Otherwise, this function returns the new tab list. The function allocates space to hold the returned tab list. The application is responsible for managing the allocated space. The application can recover the allocated space by calling XmTabListFree.
