XtRealizeWidget(3)		 XT FUNCTIONS		    XtRealizeWidget(3)

       XtRealizeWidget,	XtIsRealized, XtUnrealizeWidget	- realize and unreal-
       ize widgets

       void XtRealizeWidget(Widget w);

       Boolean XtIsRealized(Widget w);

       void XtUnrealizeWidget(Widget w);

       w	 Specifies the widget.

       If the widget is	already	realized, XtRealizeWidget simply returns.
       Otherwise, it performs the following:

       o    Binds all action names in the widget's translation table to	proce-
	    dures (see Section 10.1.2).

       o    Makes a post-order traversal of the	widget tree rooted at the
	    specified widget and calls the change_managed procedure of each
	    composite widget that has one or more managed children.

       o    Constructs an XSetWindowAttributes structure filled	in with	infor-
	    mation derived from	the Core widget	fields and calls the realize
	    procedure for the widget, which adds any widget-specific at-
	    tributes and creates the X window.

       o    If the widget is not a subclass of compositeWidgetClass,
	    XtRealizeWidget returns; otherwise,	it continues and performs the

	    -	 Descends recursively to each of the widget's managed children
		 and calls the realize procedures.  Primitive widgets that in-
		 stantiate children are	responsible for	realizing those	chil-
		 dren themselves.

	    -	 Maps all of the managed children windows that have
		 mapped_when_managed True.  (If	a widget is managed but
		 mapped_when_managed is	False, the widget is allocated visual
		 space but is not displayed.  Some people seem to like this to
		 indicate certain states.)

       If the widget is	a top-level shell widget (that is, it has no parent),
       and mapped_when_managed is True,	XtRealizeWidget	maps the widget	win-

       The XtIsRealized	function returns True if the widget has	been realized,
       that is,	if the widget has a nonzero X window ID.

       Some widget procedures (for example, set_values)	might wish to operate
       differently after the widget has	been realized.

       The XtUnrealizeWidget function destroys the windows of an existing wid-
       get and all of its children (recursively	down the widget	tree).	To
       recreate	the windows at a later time, call XtRealizeWidget again.  If
       the widget was managed, it will be unmanaged automatically before its
       window is freed.
