 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      DtEditorAppend - append data to a DtEditor widget

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

      DtEditorErrorCode DtEditorAppend(
      Widget widget,

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The DtEditorAppend function appends either a NULL-terminated string,
      wide character string or sized buffer after the last character in a
      DtEditor widget.  The data is transferred to the DtEditor widget using
      a DtEditorContentRec, which indicates the type of data being
      transferred along with the actual data.  After the data is appended,
      the insertion cursor is positioned at the new last character.

      The widget argument specifies the DtEditor widget ID.

      The data argument points to the data structure containing the data to

                Not enough system memory is available to append the data.

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
      The following code segment sets the contents of a DtEditor widget to
      ``The quick brown fox.''

      Widget                  editor;
      DtEditorContentRec      cr;
      DtEditorErrorCode       status;
      char                    *sampleString1="The quick",
                              *secondString2=" brown fox";
      cr.type = DtEDITOR_TEXT;
      cr.value.string = sampleString1;
      status = DtEditorSetContents(editor, &cr);
      if (status != DtEDITOR_NO_ERRORS && status != DtEDITOR_NULLS_REMOVED) {
              printf("Unable to set the contents of the widget\n");
      } else {
              cr.type = DtEDITOR_TEXT;
              cr.value.string = sampleString2;
              status = DtEditorAppend(editor, &cr);
              if (status != DtEDITOR_NO_ERRORS)
                      printf("Unable to append to the contents of the widget\n");

 APPLICATION USAGE    [Toc]    [Back]
      If the data is in a disk file, rather than in memory, the application
      should use DtEditorAppendFromFile(3).
