Separator is a primitive widget that
separates items in a display. Several different
line drawing styles are provided, as well as horizontal or vertical
The Separator line drawing is automatically
centered within the height of the widget for a horizontal orientation
and centered within the width of the widget for a vertical orientation.
An XtSetValues with a new XmNseparatorType resizes the
widget to its minimal height (for horizontal orientation) or its
minimal width (for
vertical orientation) unless height or width is explicitly set in the
Separator does not draw shadows around the separator.
The Primitive resource XmNshadowThickness is used for the
Separator's thickness when XmNseparatorType is
XmSHADOW_ETCHED_IN_DASH, XmSHADOW_ETCHED_OUT, or
Separator does not highlight and allows no traversing. The primitive
resource XmNtraversalOn is forced to False.
The XmNseparatorType of XmNO_LINE provides an escape
to the application
programmer who needs a different style of drawing.
A pixmap the height of the widget can be created and used as the
background pixmap by building an argument list using the
argument type as defined by Core.
Whenever the widget is redrawn,
its background is displayed containing the desired separator drawing.
Separator inherits behavior and resources from Core
and XmPrimitive classes.
The class pointer is xmSeparatorWidgetClass.
The class name is XmSeparator.
The following table defines a set of widget resources used by the programmer
to specify data. The programmer can also set the resource values for the
inherited classes to set attributes for this widget. To reference a
resource by name or by class in a .Xdefaults file,
remove the ``XmN'' or
``XmC'' prefix and use the remaining letters. To specify one of the defined
values for a resource in a .Xdefaults file, remove the ``Xm'' prefix and use
the remaining letters (in either lowercase or uppercase, but include any
underscores between words).
The codes in the access column indicate if the given resource can be
set at creation time (C),
set by using XtSetValues (S),
retrieved by using XtGetValues (G),
or is not applicable (N/A).
XmSeparator resource set
For horizontal orientation, specifies the space on the left and right
sides between the border of the Separator and the line drawn.
For vertical orientation, specifies the space on the top and
bottom between the border of the Separator and the line drawn.
Displays Separator vertically or horizontally. This resource can have
values of XmVERTICAL and XmHORIZONTAL.
Specifies the type of line drawing to be done in the Separator widget.
XmSINGLE_LINE -- single line.
XmDOUBLE_LINE -- double line.
XmSINGLE_DASHED_LINE -- single-dashed line.
XmDOUBLE_DASHED_LINE -- double-dashed line.
XmNO_LINE -- no line.
XmSHADOW_ETCHED_IN -- a line whose shadows give the
effect of a line etched into the window. The thickness of the
line is equal to the value of XmNshadowThickness. For
horizontal orientation, the top shadow is drawn in XmNtopShadowColor
and the bottom shadow is drawn in XmNbottomShadowColor. For
vertical orientation, the left edge is drawn in XmNtopShadowColor
and the right edge is drawn in XmNbottomShadowColor.
XmSHADOW_ETCHED_OUT -- a line whose shadows give the effect
of an etched line coming out of the window. The thickness of the
line is equal to the value of XmNshadowThickness. For horizontal
orientation, the top shadow is drawn in XmNbottomShadowColor and
the bottom shadow is drawn in XmNtopShadowColor. For vertical
orientation, the left edge is drawn in XmNbottomShadowColor and
the right edge is drawn in XmNtopShadowColor.
XmSHADOW_ETCHED_IN_DASH -- identical to
XmSHADOW_ETCHED_IN except a series of lines creates a dashed line.
XmSHADOW_ETCHED_OUT_DASH -- identical to
XmSHADOW_ETCHED_OUT except a series of lines creates a dashed line.
Separator inherits behavior and resources from the following
superclasses. For a complete description of each resource, refer to the
man page for that superclass.
