— Registers the values associated with
the names referenced in UIL within a single hierarchy (for example, UIL
callback function names or UIL identifier names)
function registers a vector of names and
associated values for access in MRM. The values can be callback functions,
pointers to user-defined data, or any other values. The information provided
is used to resolve symbolic references occurring in UID files to their
run-time values. For callbacks, this information provides the procedure
address required by the Motif Toolkit. For names used as identifiers in UIL,
this information provides any run-time mapping the application needs.
This function is similar to MrmRegisterNames
, except that the scope of
the names registered by MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy
is limited to the
hierarchy specified by hierarchy_id
, whereas the names registered by
have global scope. When MRM looks up a name, it first
tries to find the name among those registered for the given hierarchy. If that
lookup fails, it tries to find the name among those registered globally.
- Specifies the hierarchy with which the names are to be associated.
- Specifies a list of name/value pairs for the names to be registered. Each
name is a case-sensitive, NULL-terminated ASCII string. Each value is a
32-bit quantity, interpreted as a procedure address if the name is a
callback function, and uninterpreted otherwise.
- Specifies the number of entries in register_list.
The names in the list are case-sensitive. The list can be either ordered or
Callback functions registered through MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy
either regular or creation callbacks. Regular callbacks have declarations
determined by Motif Toolkit and user requirements. Creation callbacks have the
same format as any other callback:
- Specifies the widget ID associated with the widget performing the callback
(as in any callback function).
- Specifies the tag value (as in any callback function).
- Specifies a widget-specific data structure. This data structure has a
minimum of two members: event and reason. The reason member is always set
Note that the widget name and parent are available from the widget record
accessible through widget_id
This function returns one of the following status return constants:
- The function executed successfully.
- The function failed.
