 DtActionDescription(library call)         DtActionDescription(library call)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      DtActionDescription - obtain the descriptive text for a given action

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      #include <Dt/Action.h>
      char *DtActionDescription(
      char *actionName);

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The DtActionDescription function looks up and returns the descriptive
      text associated with the actionName action.  The actionName argument
      is the name of the action.  If there are multiple actionName actions,
      the string returned is the description of the most general.  The most
      general action is the one with the lowest precedence, as described in
      dtactionfile(4) (``Action Selection'').

 RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]
      Upon successful completion, the DtActionDescription function returns a
      newly allocated copy of the description string associated with the
      action; otherwise, it returns NULL.

 APPLICATION USAGE    [Toc]    [Back]
      The DtActionDescription function is useful for applications that wish
      to present information to the user about a particular action.

      The application should use XtFree(3) to free the description string
      returned by DtActionDescription.

 SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]
      Dt/Action.h - DtAction(5), XtFree(3), dtactionfile(4), dtdtfile(4).
