Programmer Reference : Common Widgets
Common Widgets
The Common Widgets (CW) classes and methods subsystem enables developers to design and build graphical user interfaces using an application programming interface (API) based on OSF/Motif. Using the Common Widgets subsystem, developers can do the following:
Create individual widgets, including buttons, lists, text, menus, and dialog boxes
Create compound widget structures by combining individual widgets
Specify the positioning of widgets relative to each other
Program operations to occur in response to user actions
These capabilities are described later in this chapter. In addition, this chapter explains how the system is based on OSF/Motif, gives an overview of the Common Widgets class hierarchy, and describes the basic approach for building an application.
