Name

xview - xview toolkit information

Synopsis

There is no xview command per se, but this manual page will briefly describe XView features and functions.

Availability

XView is available with the OpenWindows distribution.

Description

XView (X Window-System-based Visual/Integrated Environment for Workstations) is an Open Look user-interface toolkit which supports development of interactive, graphics-based applications running under the X Window System. For detailed information see the XView Programming Manual and the XView Reference Manual.

Usage

Compiling XView Programs

XView programs are compiled with the following command line:

cc sourcefile.c -o outputfile -lxview -lolgx -lX11

Generic XView Functions

xv_init()
Establishes the connection to the server, initializes the Notifier and the Defaults/Resource-Manager database, loads the Server Resource-Manager database, reads any passed attributes, and installs a default X11 Errorhandler.
Xv_Server
xv_init(LBattrs)
    <attribute-value list> LBattrs;

Note: attrs is a NULL terminated attribute-value list.

xv_create()
Creates an object.
Xv_object
xv_create(owner, package, LBattrs)
    Xv_object      owner;
    Xv_pkg         package;
    <attribute-value list> LBattrs;
xv_destroy()
Destroys an object.
int
xv_destroy(object)
    Xv_opaque object;

xv_find()
Finds an object that meets certain criteria; or if the object doesn’t exist, creates it (default behavior which can be defeated using XV_AUTO_CREATE, FALSE).
Xv_opaque
xv_find(owner, package, LBattrs)
    Xv_object      owner;
    Xv_pkg         package;
    <attribute-value list> LBattrs;
xv_get()
Gets the value of a single attribute.
Xv_opaque
xv_get(object, LBattrs)
    Xv_object     object;
    <attribute-value list> LBattrs;
xv_set()
Sets the value of one or more attributes.
Xv_opaque
xv_set(object, LBattrs)
    Xv_object     object;
    <attribute-value list> LBattrs;

Internationalized Support

XView now has support for internationalization. This includes locale setting, localized text handling, and dynamic object layout. See the XView Programming Manual for details.

Command Line Resource Arguments

XView-based applications display characteristics can be controlled by supplying command line arguments to the applications at start-up. The usage is as follows:

% program -argument1 value1 -argument2 value2...

In the tables below, Argument(s) shows the short argument followed by the long argument--either can be used. Type describes the type of value the arguments can receive. Resource describes the X resource name modified by the arguments. Default is the default value. Description describes what the arguments do. Example shows an example of a command using the argument.

Argument(s):
-Wx, or -scale
Type:
string ("small", "medium", "large", "extra_large")
Resource:
Window.Scale
Default:
medium
Description:
Sets the initial scale of the application (larger or smaller). small is 10 pixels, medium is 12 pixels, large is 14 pixels and extra_Large is 19 pixels. The font.name resource will override the scale.
Example:
cmdtool -scale extra_large

Argument(s):
-Wt, -fn, or -font
Type:
string
Resource:
Font.Name
Default:
lucidasans-12
Description:
Sets the name of the font used for the application. Does not set the font for frame header and frame menu header. These are controlled by the window manager. To find out what fonts are available, use the xlsfonts(1) command. If the font you specify cannot be found, you will see an error message such as:


XView warning: Cannot load font ’galant-24’ (Font package)
XView warning: Attempting to load font ’-b&h-lucida-medium-r-normal-sans-*-120-*-*-*-*-*-*’ instead (Font package)

Example:
cmdtool -fn fixed

Argument(s):
-Ws, or -size
Type:
integer integer
Resource:
Window.Width and Window.Height
Default:
depends on application
Description:
Sets the width and height of the application’s base frame. The values are in pixels.
Example:
cmdtool -Ws 400 500

Argument(s):
-Ww, or -width
Type:
int (number of columns)
Resource:
window.columns
Default:
None
Description:
Specifies the width, in columns, of the application.
Example:
cmdtool -width 40
(starts a command tool 40 columns wide)

Argument(s):
-Wh, or -height
Type:
int (number of columns)
Resource:
window.rows
Default:
None
Description:
Specifies the height, in rows, of the application.
Example:
cmdtool -height 40
(starts a command tool 40 rows high)

Argument(s):
-Wp, or -position
Type:
integer integer
Resource:
Window.X and Window.Y
Default:
depends on window manager
Description:
Sets the initial position of the application’s base frame in pixels. The upper left corner of the screen is at position (0,0), with the x-axis increasing to the left, and the y-axis increasing downward. These values will also be generated by the "Save Workspace" option on the root menu into the $HOME/.openwin-init file when using the Open Look Window Manager.
Example:
cmdtool -Wp 100 200

Argument(s):
-WG, or -geometry
Type:
string of the format <width>x<height>{+-}<xoffset>{+-}<yoffset>
Resource:
Window.Geometry
Default:
depends on application and window manager
Description:
This sets both the size and the placement of the application’s base frame. This option has priority over the -size and -position arguments. The size and placement parts of the value are optional. You can set just the size, just the position, or both. The size values are measured in pixels, and the position values use the same semantics as -position. However, if you use the ’-’ in front of an X value, it will be taken as relative to the right hand side of the screen, instead of the left. Likewise, if you use the ’-’ with the Y value, it will be taken relative to the bottom of the screen instead of the top.
Examples:

cmdtool -geometry 500x600
(will make the base frame 500x600 pixels, with the position set by the window manager)
cmdtool -WG +10+20(will make the base frame of default size with the
left hand side of the frame 10 pixels from the left hand side of the screen, and the top of the frame 20 pixels from the top of the screen)
cmdtool -WG -10+20(will make the base frame of default size with the
right hand side of the frame 10 pixels from the right hand side of the screen, and the top of the frame 20 pixels from the top of the screen)
cmdtool -geometry 400x300-0-0(will make the base frame 400x300 pixels with the
right hand side of the frame flush against the right hand side of the screen, and the bottom of the frame flush with the bottom of the screen)

Argument(s):
-WP, -icon_position
Type:
integer integer
Resource:
Icon.X Icon.Y
Default:
depends on window manager
Description:
Sets the position of the application’s icon in pixels. Uses the same semantics as -position for base frames.

Argument(s):
-Wl, -label, or -title
Type:
string
Resource:
Window.Header
Default:
N/A

Argument(s):
-depth
Type:
integer
Resource:
Window.Depth
Default:
Depth of server’s default visual
Description:
Specifies the depth of base frame. If this depth is not supported by the server, the default depth will be used instead. If this is specified in conjunction with -visual, then the exact visual will be used.
Example:
cmdtool -depth 4

Argument(s):
-visual
Type:
string (one of the values: StaticGray, GrayScale, StaticColor, PseudoColor, TrueColor, or DirectColor).
Resource:
Window.Visual
Default:
Server’s default visual
Description:

Default:
white
Description:
These options are similar to the -Wf and -Wb options, except that they take a color argument in the form of a predefined color name (lavender, grey, goldenrod, etc.) from $OPENWINHOME/lib/rbg.txt, or a hexadecimal representation. The hexadecimal representation is of the form pound sign (#) followed by the hexadecimal representation of the red, green and blue aspects of the color.
Examples:
cmdtool -fg blue -bg gray

Argument(s):
-WI, or -icon_image
Type:
string
Resource:
Icon.Pixmap
Default:
depends on application
Description:
Sets the default filename for the icon’s image. However, the application can overwrite this setting and display its own icon image. The file must be in XView icon format. The program iconedit(1) will allow one to create an image in the icon format. Several icons have been provided in the directory $OPENWINHOME/include/images. By convention, icon format files end with the suffix .icon.
Example:
cmdtool -WI /usr/include/images/stop.icon

Argument(s):
-WL, or -icon_label
Type:
string
Resource:
Icon.Footer
Default:
depends on application
Description:
Sets a default label for the base frame’s icon. However, the application can overwrite this setting and display its own icon label.
Example:
cmdtool -WL "Icon Label"

Argument(s):
-WT, or -icon_font
Type:
string
Resource:
Icon.Font.Name
Default:

string string
Resource:
given by the first string
Default:
none
Description:
This option allows the user to set resources that don’t have command line equivalents. The format is -default resource-name value . The XView resources without specific command line arguments are discussed in the following section.
Example:
cmdtool -default OpenWindows.ScrollbarPlacement left

Argument(s):
-xrm
Type:
string
Resource:
given in the string
Default:
none
Description:
This option allows the user to set resources that don’t have command line equivalents. This is similar to the -default option, but it takes only one argument, a string in the form of resource-name:value.
Example:
cmdtool -xrm OpenWindows.ScrollbarPlacement:right

Argument(s):
-WH, or -help
Type:
none
Resource:
none
Default:
none
Description:
Prints a description of the valid xview command line arguments for the application.

Argument(s):
-sync or -synchronous, and +sync or +synchronous
Type:
boolean
Resource:
Window.Synchronous
Default:
+synchronous
Description:
These options allow you to make the connection that the application has with the X11 server either synchronous (-sync) or asynchronous (+sync).

Argument(s):
-Wr, or -display
Type:
string (host:display{.screen})
Resource:
Server.Name
Default:
taken from the DISPLAY environment variable
Description:
Sets the name of the X11 server on which to connect. host is the name or address of the machine on whose server you have permission to display. display is a number corresponding to the server on which to display for that machine, and screen corresponds to which screen for the server. See reference manual page on xhost(1) for more details on adding to permissions list.
Examples:
cmdtool -display foobar:0
(will bring up a cmdtool on the default screen of the display #0 of host foobar)
cmdtool -display foobar:0.1

(will bring up a cmdtool on screen #1 of display #0 of host foobar)

Argument(s):
-Wdxio, or -disable_xio_error_handler
Type:
boolean
Resource:
none
Default:
enable xio handler--this option disables it
Description:
This option is useful for debugging an application. Whenever there is a fatal XIO error, the server will print an error message before exiting. XView installs a error handler to keep those messages from appearing. If you would like to see these messages, use this option.

Argument(s)
-rv (or -reverse), and +rv (or +reverse)
Type:
boolean
Resource:
Window.ReverseVideo
Default:
False
Description:
These options control whether the foreground and background colors of the application will be reversed. If True, the foreground and background colors will be swapped. The -rv flag will set this to True, while the +rv will set it to False. This is really only useful on monochrome displays.

Argument(s):
-name
Type:
string
Resource:
None
Default:
argv[0]
Description:
Specifies the instance name of the application. This name is used to construct the resource name used to perform lookups in the X11 Resource Manager to look for the values of customizable attributes.

Internationalized Command Line Resource Arguments

The following command line arguments are relevant to internationalization. Locale refers to the language and cultural conventions used in a program. Locale setting is the method by which the language and cultural environment of a system is set. Locale setting affects the display and manipulation of language-dependent features.

The internationalization features that XView now supports include locale setting. One of the ways locale can be set is with command line options. See the XView Programming Manual for details on other methods.

string
Resource:
basicLocale
Default:
"C"
Description:
Specifies the basic locale category, which sets the country of the user interface.

Argument(s):
-lc_displaylang
Type:
string
Resource:
displayLang
Default:
"C"
Description:
Specifies the display language locale category, sets the language in which labels, messages, menu items, and help text are displayed.

Argument(s):
-lc_inputlang
Type:
string
Resource:
inputLang
Default:

Description:
Specifies the time format locale category, which defines the language used to format time and date.

Command Line Options/X Resources for Debugging

The following switches/resources can be used during development to avoid the locking up of screens or other effects of X grabs that are done by XView.

It should be noted that these options/resources should only be used by developers and are not for normal usage. The X grabs are done for a specific reason, and are not meant to be customizable. Without the X grabs, certain features in XView (those that depend on X grabs) might not function properly.

Argument(s):
-Wfsdb, or -fullscreendebug
Type:
boolean
Resource:
Fullscreen.Debug
Default:
FALSE
Description:
Enables/disables fullscreen debugging mode during which X grabs (XGrabServer(), XGrabKeyboard(), XGrabPointer()) are not done. When using the fullscreen pkg, the X11 server will be grabbed which prevents other windows on the server from responding until the grab has been released by the one window which initiated the grab. Refer to Appendix F in the XView Manual: Converting SunView Applications for further details.

Argument(s):
-Wfsdbs, or -fullscreendebugserver
Type:
boolean
Resource:
Fullscreen.Debugserver
Default:
FALSE
Description:
Enables/disables server grabbing (XGrabServer()) that is done via the fullscreen pkg. Refer to the Appendix F in the XView Manual: Converting SunView Applications for further details.

Argument(s):
-Wfsdbk, or -fullscreendebugkbd
Type:
boolean
Resource:
Fullscreen.Debugkbd
Default:
FALSE
Description:
Enables/disables keyboard grabbing (XGrabKeyboard()) that is done via the fullscreen pkg. Refer to the Appendix F in the XView Manual: Converting SunView Applications for further details.

Argument(s):
-Wfsdbp, or -fullscreendebugptr
Type:
boolean
Resource:
Fullscreen.Debugptr
Default:
FALSE
Description:
Enables/disables pointer grabbing (XGrabPointer()) that is done via the fullscreen pkg. Refer to the Appendix F in the XView Manual: Converting SunView Applications for further details.

Argument(s):
-Wdpgs, or -disable_pass_grab_select
Type:
boolean
Resource:
Window.PassiveGrab.Select
Default:
TRUE
Description:
Disables the passive grab that is done on the SELECT button. XView does a passive grab on the SELECT button to avoid input focus race conditions. When this passive grab is disabled, input focus race conditions may be seen.
Example:
% cmdtool -disable_pass_grab_select
This executes a cmdtool that does not perform any passive grabs on the SELECT button. To do the same thing using X resources, add the following entry to the X resource database:
Window.PassiveGrab.Select:False

.Xdefaults File

The .Xdefaults file is used to store and retrieve resource settings. We recommend, however, that you use the command line arguments described above in order to change display characteristics. Changing the resources in the .Xdefaults file will modify the behaviour of the user’s session. Novice users should not casually hand modify these settings. Before attempting edits to this file please read the appropriate sections of the Xlib Programming Manual on the file format and the specific properties you intend to change.

Note that resources documented below do not have command line arguments. It is still possible, however, to change them without altering the .Xdefaults file. Refer to the command line arguments -xrm and -defaults for instructions on how to to this. Additional resources that have command line arguments are documented in the previous section. For mouseless resources refer to the XView Programming Manual.

The resources are documented in the following format:

Resource:
Resource Name ( If the resource can be modified by the OpenWindows Property Sheet, the word Props will be present.)
Values:
Possible Values, and/or Format of Values to be Assigned to Resource (Default Value)
Description
Description of Resource.

Resource:
window.synchronous, +sync -sync
Values:

Resource:
OpenWindows.MouseChordMenu
Values:
True, False (False)
Description:
Turns on the mouse chording mechanism. Mouse chording was implemented to allow XView to work with two-button mice. Pressing the SELECT and the ADJUST buttons at the same time will act as MENU button.

Resource:
OpenWindows.MouseChordTimeout
Values:
N (100)
Description:
Mouse chording time-out value. N is in micro-seconds.

Resource:
OpenWindows.SelectDisplaysMenu (Props)
Values:
True, False (False)
Description
When True, the SELECT button (usually left mouse) will display the menu as well as the MENU button (usually right mouse).

Resource:

Description
When set to Left, put all scrollbars on the lefthand side of the window or object.

Resource:
OpenWindows.multiClickTimeout (Props)
Values:
N (4)
Description
Where N is an integer greater than 2. Set the number of tenths of a second between clicks for a multi-click. A click is button-down, button-up pair.

Resource:
text.delimiterChars
Values:
string (’ \011!\"#$%&\’()*+,-./:;<=>?@[\\]^_‘{|}~’)
Description
This resource allows the user to select the delimiter characters that are used when doing word level selections in the XView package. It was added because of the needs of the international marketplace, and it allows the user to define the local delimiters for the character set that is being used with the current keyboard and Sun workstation.

Note that the octal characters can be scrambled by Xrm during a rewrite of the value of text.delimiter.Chars. Xrm interprets the text.delimiterChar string when it is loaded. Specifically it will decode the backslashed portions of the string and convert them to octal representations. When this is passed to the client application, the logic will function correctly. However, this misbehavior of Xrm causes the string to be stored incorrectly if the user saves the .Xdefaults file using the Xrm content of the string. The specific problem(s) that occur are the stripping of the backslash characters and the expansion of the tab character (\011).

To correct this problem, one can put the text.delimiterChar entry into an .Xdefaults file that will not be overwritten when saving the workspace properties (for example, a system wide defaults file). Or a copy of the text.delimiterChar entry can be inserted after .Xdefaults file saves.

Resource:
scrollbar.jumpCursor (Props)

Resource:
scrollbar.pageInterval
Values:
N (100)
Description
Where N is some integer greater than 2. Specifies the time in milliseconds between repeats of a single page scroll.

Resource:
scrollbar.lineInterval
Values:
N (1)
Description
Where N is some integer greater than 0. Specifies the time in milliseconds between repeats of a single line scroll. How long to pause scrolling when holding down the SELECT button on the scrollbar elevator. Scrollbar sets up a timer routine for repeats.

Resource:
text.maxDocumentSize
Values:
N (2000)
Description
Where N specifies the bytes used in memory before a text file is saved to a file on disk. Once this limit is exceeded, the text package will send a notice to the user to tell them that no more insertions are possible. If the file being edited is saved to a file, or it is a disk file being edited, then the limit does not apply.

Resource:
text.retained
Values:
True, False (False)
Description
If True, retain text windows with server backing store.

Resource:
text.extrasMenuFilename
Values:
filename (/usr/lib/.text_extras_menu)
