XmTextSetSource(3)	   Library Functions Manual	    XmTextSetSource(3)

NAME
       XmTextSetSource -- A Text function that sets the	source of the widget

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<Xm/Text.h>
       void XmTextSetSource(
       Widget widget,
       XmTextSource source,
       XmTextPosition top_character,
       XmTextPosition cursor_position);

DESCRIPTION
       XmTextSetSource	sets  the  source of the Text widget. Text widgets can
       share sources of	text so	that editing in	one widget is reflected	in an-
       other. This function sets the source of one widget so that it can share
       the source of another widget.

       Setting a new text source destroys the old text source if no other Text
       widgets	are  using  that source.  To replace a text source but keep it
       for later use, create an	unmanaged Text widget and set  its  source  to
       the text	source you want	to keep.

       widget	 Specifies the Text widget ID.

       source	 Specifies  the	 source	 with  which the widget	displays text.
		 This can be a value returned by the XmTextGetSource(3)	 func-
		 tion. If no source is specified, the widget creates a default
		 string	source.

       top_character
		 Specifies the position	in the text to display at the  top  of
		 the widget.  This is an integer number	of characters from the
		 beginning of the text buffer. The first character position is
		 0 (zero).

       cursor_position
		 Specifies the position	in the text at which the insert	cursor
		 is located. This is an	integer	number of characters from  the
		 beginning of the text buffer. The first character position is
		 0 (zero).

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