 DtEditorSetContents(library call)         DtEditorSetContents(library call)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      DtEditorSetContents - place data into a DtEditor widget

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      #include <Dt/Editor.h>
      DtEditorErrorCode DtEditorSetContents(
      Widget widget,
      DtEditorContentRec *data);

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The DtEditorSetContents function places a NULL-terminated string, wide
      character string or sized buffer into a DtEditor widget.  Any data
      currently in the DtEditor widget is lost.  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 placed into the DtEditor widget, the insertion cursor is
      positioned at the first character.

      The widget argument specifies the DtEditor widget ID.

      The data argument is a pointer to a data structure containing the new
      contents of widget.

      For a complete definition of the DtEditor widget and its associated
      resources, see DtEditor(3).

      For a complete definition of DtEditorContentRec, see Dt/Editor.h -

 RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]
      Upon successful completion, the DtEditorSetContents function returns
      one of the following values:

                The data was loaded sucessfully.

                NULL characters were found and removed from the data.

      Otherwise, if the DtEditorSetContents function cannot load the data in
      the DtEditor widget, it returns one of the following values:

                The Type field is unrecognized.

                The size of the buffer passed in is negative.

                The buffer is NULL.

                Not enough system memory is available to load 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                    *sampleString="The quick brown fox";
      cr.type = DtEDITOR_TEXT;
      cr.value.string = sampleString;
      status = DtEditorSetContents(editor, &cr);
      if (status != DtEDITOR_NO_ERRORS && status != DtEDITOR_NULLS_REMOVED) {
              printf("Unable to set 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 DtEditorSetContentsFromFile(3).
