XmFontListEntryCreate: A font list function that creates a font list entry


XmFontListEntryCreate --- A font list function that creates a font list entry


#include <Xm/Xm.h>
XmFontListEntry XmFontListEntryCreate(
char *tag,
XmFontType type,
XtPointer font);


XmFontListEntryCreate creates a font list entry that contains either a font or font set and is identified by a tag.

Specifies a NULL terminated string for the tag of the font list entry. The tag may be specified as XmFONTLIST_DEFAULT_TAG, which is used to identify the default font list element in a font list.
Specifies whether the font argument is a font structure or a font set. Valid values are XmFONT_IS_FONT and XmFONT_IS_FONTSET.
Specifies either an XFontSet returned by XCreateFontSet or a pointer to an XFontStruct returned by XLoadQueryFont.

The toolkit does not copy the X Font structure specified by the font argument. Therefore, an application programmer must not free XFontStruct or XFontSet until all font lists and/or font entries that reference it have been freed.


Returns a font list entry. The function allocates space to hold the returned font list entry. The application is responsible for managing the allocated space. The application can recover the allocated space by calling XmFontListEntryFree.
