XmTextPosToXY(3)	   Library Functions Manual	      XmTextPosToXY(3)

NAME
       XmTextPosToXY  -- A Text	function that accesses the x and y position of
       a character position

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<Xm/Text.h>
       Boolean XmTextPosToXY(
       Widget widget,
       XmTextPosition position,
       Position	*x,
       Position	*y);

DESCRIPTION
       XmTextPosToXY accesses the x and	y position, relative to	the upper left
       corner  of  the	Text widget, of	a given	character position in the text
       buffer.

       In the case of horizontal writing, the position is the  origin  of  the
       character.  In the case of vertical writing, the	position is the	verti-
       cal origin of the character.

       widget	 Specifies the Text widget ID

       position	 Specifies the character position in the text for which	the  x
		 and  y	 position  is  accessed.  This is an integer number of
		 characters from the beginning of the buffer. The first	 char-
		 acter position	is 0 (zero).

       x	 Specifies  the	 pointer  in which the x position is returned.
		 The returned position is the distance from the	left  side  of
		 the  widget  to the left border of the	character.  This value
		 is meaningful only if the function returns True.

       y	 Specifies the pointer in which	the y  position	 is  returned.
		 The  returned	position  is  the distance from	the top	of the
		 widget	to the character's baseline.  This value is meaningful
		 only if the function returns True.

       For a complete definition of Text and its associated resources, see Xm-
       Text(3).

RETURN
       This function returns True if the character position  is	 displayed  in
       the  Text  widget;  otherwise, it returns False,	and no x or y value is
       returned.
