DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
XmAddToPostFromList makes a menu accessible from more than one widget.

menu accessible from a second widget. The process may be repeated
indefinitely. In other words, where an application would use

now pop up the specified menu. The actual posting of the menu occurs
as it always does, either through an event handler, or the automatic

If menu refers to a Pulldown menu, its ID is placed in the
XmNsubMenuId resource of the specified post_from_widget. In this
case, the post_from_widget widget must be either a CascadeButton or a
Note that this function manipulates the internal structures
themselves, not a copy of them.
menu Specifies the ID of the RowColumn widget containing the menu
(Popup or Pulldown) to be made accessible from the widget.
Specifies the widget ID of the widget which will now be able
to post the menu specified by menu.
