XmStringComponentCreate — A compound string function that creates arbitrary components

#include <Xm/Xm.h>
XmString XmStringComponentCreate(
XmStringComponentType c_type,
unsigned int length,
XtPointer value);

XmStringComponentCreate creates a new XmString component of type c_type, containing value. If value is invalid for the particular component type, this function fails and returns NULL.

Specifies the type of component to be created.
Specifies the length in bytes of value. Note that this must be precisely the length of the value string, not including any trailing null characters.
Specifies the value to be used in the creation of the component.

Refer to the XmStringComponentType(3) reference page for a list of the possible XmString component types.

If value is invalid for c_type, fails and returns NULL. Otherwise, this function returns a new compound string. When the application no longer needs the returned compound string, the application should call XmStringFree.

XmString(3), XmStringGetNextTriple, XmStringComponentType, and XmStringFree(3).
