XmTextFieldReplaceWcs — A TextField function that replaces part of a wide character string in a TextField widget


#include <Xm/TextF.h>
void XmTextFieldReplaceWcs(
Widget widget,
XmTextPosition from_pos,
XmTextPosition to_pos,
wchar_t *wcstring);


XmTextFieldReplaceWcs replaces part of the wide character string in the TextField widget. The character positions begin at 0 (zero) and are numbered sequentially from the beginning of the text.

An example text replacement would be to replace the second and third characters in the text string. To accomplish this, the parameter from_pos must be 1 and to_pos must be 3. To insert a string after the fourth character, both parameters, from_pos and to_pos, must be 4.

This routine calls the widget's XmNvalueChangedCallback and verification callbacks, either XmNmodifyVerifyCallback or XmNmodifyVerifyCallbackWcs, or both. If both verification callback lists are registered, the procedures of the XmNmodifyVerifyCallback list are executed first and the resulting data is passed to the XmNmodifyVerifyCallbackWcs callbacks. If the XmNcursorPosition resource is greater than or is the same value as from_pos, the XmNmotionVerifyCallback is called.
