SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
The DtActionIcon function gets the icon information for an action.
The actionName argument is the name of the action. DtActionIcon
returns the name of the icon associated with an actionName action. If
the action definition does not explicitly identify an icon name, this
function returns the default action icon name, as described in
dtactionfile(4) (``Action Selection''). The default action icon name
can be customized using the actionIcon X resource.
If there are multiple actionName actions, the string returned is the
icon associated with the most general action. The most general action
is the one with the lowest precedence, as described in dtactionfile(4)
RETURN VALUE [Toc] [Back]
Upon successful completion, the DtActionIcon function returns a newly
allocated copy of the icon name string ( ICON field) associated with
the action; otherwise, it returns NULL.
APPLICATION USAGE [Toc] [Back]
The DtActionIcon function is useful for applications that provide a
graphical interface to actions.
The application should use XtFree(3) to free the icon name string
returned by the DtActionIcon function.
