Sample text

The Class Part of a Widget The class (ClassPart) is the thing that binds the mechanism together. It allows for inheritance of superclass methods and data via a pointer to the superclass’s class record. Through this pointer, new widgets may use the superclass’s code as if it were their own. This notion is quite powerful. It implies that writing new widgets can be simply a matter of adding a few things rather than rewriting the entire code. In Chapter 2 you reviewed how pointers and structures work — a pointer is nothing more than a place in memory, an address.

M, p, c 98, etc. iso8859, etc. 1, etc. The registry is an X registered name that tells you who owns the remaining part of the syntax and semantics that make up the remainder of the name; the foundry tells who provided it; family is the typeface; weight is the appearance; slant is either r (upright), o (oblique), i (italic), ri (reverse italic), ro (reverse oblique), or ot (other); pointsize tells how big it is, spacing is either m (mono), p (proportional), or c (charcell); avgwidth tells the average width of the characters; and charsetregistry tells what body the font is registered with.

4. Loading Fonts Most of the Xt Intrinsics hide the details of many of the graphic elements, either through the resource management or via the built-in converters (see Chapter 6). Though these conveniences are nice, you should be aware of some of the routines for loading and unloading fonts. To load a font, use one of the following: XLoadFont(dpy,name); or XLoadQueryFont(dpy,name); XLoadFont()returns a font id to be used. It will look for the font and have it loaded. XLoadQueryFont() does the same thing except that it will return an XFontStruct.
