VIEWRES(1)          UNIX Programmer's Manual           VIEWRES(1)

NAME

     viewres - graphical class browser for Xt

SYNOPSIS

     viewres [-option ...]

DESCRIPTION

     The viewres program displays a tree showing the widget class
     hierarchy of the Athena Widget Set.  Each node in the tree
     can be expanded to show the resources that the corresponding
     class adds (i.e. does not inherit from its parent) when a
     widget is created.  This application allows the user to
     visually examine the structure and inherited resources for
     the Athena Widget Set.

OPTIONS

     Viewres accepts all of the standard toolkit command line
     options as well as the following:

     -top name
             This option specifies the name of the highest widget
             in the hierarchy to display.  This is typically used
             to limit the display to a subset of the tree.  The
             default is Object.

     -variable
             This option indicates that the widget variable names
             (as declared in header files) should be displayed in
             the nodes rather than the widget class name.  This
             is sometimes useful to distinguish widget classes
             that share the same name (such as Text).

     -vertical
             This option indicates that the tree should be
             displayed top to bottom rather left to right.

VIEW MENU

     The way in which the tree is displayed may be changed
     through the entries in the View menu:

     Show Variable Names
             This entry causes the node labels to be set to the
             variable names used to declare the corresponding
             widget class.  This operation may also be performed
             with the SetLabelType(variable) translation.

     Show Class Names
             This entry causes the node labels to be set to the
             class names used when specifying resources.  This
             operation may also be performed with the
             SetLabelType(class) translation.

     Layout Horizontal
             This entry causes the tree to be laid out from left
             to right.  This operation may also be performed with
             the SetOrientation(West) translation.

     Layout Vertical
             This entry causes the tree to be laid out from top
             to bottom.  This operation may also be performed
             with the SetOrientation(North) translation.

     Show Resource Boxes
             This entry expands the selected nodes (see next sec-
             tion) to show the new widget and constraint
             resources.  This operation may also be performed
             with the Resources(on) translation.

     Hide Resource Boxes
             This entry removes the resource displays from the
             selected nodes (usually to conserve space).  This
             operation may also be performed with the
             Resources(off) translation.

SELECT MENU

     Resources for a single widget class can be displayed by
     clicking Button2 on the corresponding node, or by adding the
     node to the selection list with Button1 and using the Show
     Resource Boxes entry in the View menu.  Since Button1 actu-
     ally toggles the selection state of a node, clicking on a
     selected node will cause it to be removed from the selected
     list.

     Collections of nodes may also be selected through the vari-
     ous entries in the Select menu:

     Unselect All
             This entry removes all nodes from the selection
             list.  This operation may also be performed with the
             Select(nothing) translation.

     Select All
             This entry adds all nodes to the selection list.
             This operation may also be performed with the
             Select(all) translation.

     Invert All
             This entry adds unselected nodes to, and removes
             selected nodes from, the selection list.  This
             operation may also be performed with the
             Select(invert) translation.

     Select Parent
             This entry selects the immediate parents of all

             selected nodes.  This operation may also be per-
             formed with the Select(parent) translation.

     Select Ancestors
             This entry recursively selects all parents of all
             selected nodes.  This operation may also be per-
             formed with the Select(ancestors) translation.

     Select Children
             This entry selects the immediate children of all
             selected nodes.  This operation may also be per-
             formed with the Select(children) translation.

     Select Descendants
             This entry recursively selects all children of all
             selected nodes.  This operation may also be per-
             formed with the Select(descendants) translation.

     Select Has Resources
             This entry selects all nodes that add new resources
             (regular or constraint) to their corresponding
             widget classes.  This operation may also be per-
             formed with the Select(resources) translation.

     Select Shown Resource Boxes
             This entry selects all nodes whose resource boxes
             are currently expanded (usually so that they can be
             closed with Hide Resource Boxes).  This operation
             may also be performed with the Select(shown) trans-
             lation.

ACTIONS

     The following application actions are provided:

     Quit()
             This action causes viewres to exit.

     SetLabelType(type)
             This action sets the node labels to display the
             widget variable or class names, according to the
             argument type.

     SetOrientation(direction)
             This action sets the root of the tree to be one of
             the following areas of the window:  West, North,
             East, or South.

     Select(what)
             This action selects the indicated nodes, as
             described in the VIEW MENU section: nothing
             (unselects all nodes), invert, parent, ancestors,
             children, descendants, resources, shown.

     Resources(op)
             This action turns on, off, or toggles the resource
             boxes for the selected nodes. If invoked from within
             one of the nodes (through the keyboard or pointer),
             only that node is used.
