Arguments

app_context

Specifies the application context.

converter

Specifies the type converter procedure.

convert_args

Specifies how to compute the additional arguments to the converter or NULL.

from_type

Specifies the source type.

num_args

cache_type

Specifies whether or not resources produced by this converter are sharable or display-specific and when they should be freed.

Description

XtSetTypeConverter registers the specified type converter and destructor in all application contexts created by the calling process, including any future application contexts that may be created. XtAppSetTypeConverter registers the specified type converter in the single application context specified. If the same from_type and to_type are specified in multiple calls to either function, the most recent overrides the previous ones.
