Cardinal MrmFetchWidget(hierarchy_id, index, parent_widget, widget, class)
The MrmFetchWidget function fetches and creates an
indexed application widget and its children.
The indexed application widget is any widget that is named in UIL.
In fetch operations, the fetched widget's subtree is also fetched and created.
This widget must not appear as the child of a widget within its own
subtree. MrmFetchWidget does not execute XtManageChild
for the newly created widget.

Returns the widget ID of the created widget.
Returns the class code identifying MRM's widget class.

MrmFetchWidget can be used to defer fetching pop-up
widgets until they are first
referenced (presumably in a callback), and then used to fetch them
can also create multiple instances of a widget (and its subtree).
In this case, the uid definition functions as a template;
a widget definition can be fetched any number of times.
An application can use
this to make multiple instances of a widget, for example, in a
dialog box box or menu.
The index (UIL name) that identifies the widget must be
known to the application.
This function returns one of these status return constants:
