XmScaleSetTicks — A Scale function that controls tick marks "XmScaleSetTicks" "Scale functions" "XmScaleSetTicks"
#include <Xm/Scale.h> void XmScaleSetTicks( Widget scale, int big_every, Cardinal num_medium, Cardinal num_small, Dimension size_big, Dimension size_medium, Dimension size_small);
XmScaleSetTicks controls the number, location, and size of the tick marks on a Scale. Each tick mark is a SeparatorGadget oriented perpendicular to the Scale's orientation. For example, if the Scale is oriented horizontally, the tick marks will be oriented vertically.
If you specify tick marks for a Scale and then change the Scale's orientation, you will have to do the following:
- Remove all the tick marks. To remove tick marks from a Scale, you must destroy (with XtDestroyChildren) the SeparatorGadget tick marks. The first two children of a Scale are its title and scroll bar, and all additional children are tick marks.
- Recreate the tick marks by calling XmScaleSetTicks.
- Specifies the Scale widget ID that is getting the tick marks.
- Specifies the number of scale values between big ticks.
- Specifies the number of medium ticks between big values.
- Specifies the number of small ticks between medium values.
- Specifies the size (either width or height) of the big ticks.
- Specifies the size (either width or height) of the medium ticks.
- Specifies the size (either width or height) of the small ticks.
