       XmVaCreateSimpleMenuBar	--  A  RowColumn  widget  convenience creation

       #include	<Xm/RowColumn.h>
       Widget XmVaCreateSimpleMenuBar(
       Widget parent,
       String name);

       XmVaCreateSimpleMenuBar creates an instance of a	 RowColumn  widget  of
       type  XmMENU_BAR	 and  returns  the associated widget ID.  This routine
       uses the	ANSI C variable-length argument	list (varargs) calling conven-

       This  routine  creates  a MenuBar and its CascadeButtonGadget children.
       The name	of each	button is button_n, where  n  is  an  integer  from  0
       (zero) to the number of buttons in the menu minus 1.  Buttons are named
       and created in the order	in which they are specified  in	 the  variable
       portion of the argument list.

       parent	 Specifies the parent widget ID

       name	 Specifies the name of the created widget

       The  variable  portion of the argument list consists of groups of argu-
       ments.  The first argument in each group	is a constant or a string  and
       determines  which arguments follow in that group.  The last argument in
       the list	must be	NULL.  Following are the possible first	 arguments  in
       each group of varargs:

		 This  is followed by two additional arguments.	The set	speci-
		 fies one button in the	MenuBar	and some of its	resource  val-
		 ues. Following	are the	additional two arguments, in order:

		 label	   The label string, of	type XmString

		 mnemonic  The mnemonic, of type KeySym

		 This is followed by one additional argument, the value	of the
		 resource, of type XtArgVal. The pair specifies	a resource and
		 its value for the RowColumn widget.

		 This is followed by four additional arguments.	The set	speci-
		 fies a	resource and its value for the RowColumn widget. A re-
		 source	 type  conversion is performed if necessary. Following
		 are the additional four arguments, in order:

		 name	   The resource	name, of type String

		 type	   The type of the resource value  supplied,  of  type

		 value	   The	resource  value	 (or a pointer to the resource
			   value, depending  on	 the  type  and	 size  of  the
			   value), of type XtArgVal

		 size	   The	size  of  the resource value in	bytes, of type

		 This  is  followed  by	 one  additional  argument   of	  type
		 XtVarArgsList.	 This argument is a nested list	of varargs re-
		 turned	by XtVaCreateArgsList.

       For more	information on variable-length argument	lists, see the X Tool-
       kit Intrinsics documentation.

       A  number  of  resources	exist specifically for use with	this and other
       simple menu creation routines.  For a complete definition of  RowColumn
       and its associated resources, see XmRowColumn(3).

       Returns the RowColumn widget ID.
