XOpenOM(3)                      XLIB FUNCTIONS                      XOpenOM(3)



NAME
       XOpenOM, XCloseOM, XSetOMValues, XGetOMValues, XDisplayOfOM, XLocaleO-
       fOM - open output methods

SYNTAX
       XOM XOpenOM(Display *display, XrmDatabase db, char *res_name, char
              *res_class);

       Status XCloseOM(XOM om);

       char *XSetOMValues(XOM om);

       char *XGetOMValues(XOM om);

       Display *XDisplayOfOM(XOM om);

       char *XLocaleOfOM(XOM om);

ARGUMENTS
       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       db        Specifies a pointer to the resource database.

       res_name  Specifies the full resource name of the application.

       res_class Specifies the full class name of the application.

       om        Specifies the output method.

       ...       Specifies the variable length argument list to set or get XOM
                 values.

DESCRIPTION
       The XOpenOM function opens an output method matching the current locale
       and modifiers specification.  The current locale and modifiers are
       bound to the output method when XOpenOM is called.  The locale associ-
       ated with an output method cannot be changed.

       The specific output method to which this call will be routed is identi-
       fied on the basis of the current locale and modifiers.  XOpenOM will
       identify a default output method corresponding to the current locale.
       That default can be modified using XSetLocaleModifiers to set the out-
       put method modifier.

       The db argument is the resource database to be used by the output
       method for looking up resources that are private to the output method.
       It is not intended that this database be used to look up values that
       can be set as OC values in an output context.  If db is NULL, no data-
       base is passed to the output method.

       The res_name and res_class arguments specify the resource name and
       class of the application.  They are intended to be used as prefixes by
       the output method when looking up resources that are common to all out-
       put contexts that may be created for this output method.  The charac-
       ters used for resource names and classes must be in the X Portable
       Character Set.  The resources looked up are not fully specified if
       res_name or res_class is NULL.

       The res_name and res_class arguments are not assumed to exist beyond
       the call to XOpenOM.  The specified resource database is assumed to
       exist for the lifetime of the output method.

       XOpenOM returns NULL if no output method could be opened.

       The XCloseOM function closes the specified output method.

       The XSetOMValues function presents a variable argument list programming
       interface for setting properties or features of the specified output
       method.  This function returns NULL if it succeeds; otherwise, it
       returns the name of the first argument that could not be set.  Xlib
       does not attempt to set arguments from the supplied list that follow
       the failed argument; all arguments in the list preceding the failed
       argument have been set correctly.

       No standard arguments are currently defined by Xlib.

       The XGetOMValues function presents a variable argument list programming
       interface for querying properties or features of the specified output
       method.  This function returns NULL if it succeeds; otherwise, it
       returns the name of the first argument that could not be obtained.

       The XDisplayOfOM function returns the display associated with the spec-
       ified output method.

       The XLocaleOfOM returns the locale associated with the specified output
       method.
