Using the Application-Configured Button

The quick help dialog's application-configured button lets you add custom behavior to any quick help dialog. This button can be used for anything you want, but its intended purpose is to provide a path to more help in one of these two ways:

To Enable the Application-Configured Button

  1. Get the button's ID.

  2. Add an activate callback to the button.

  3. Manage the button.


The following code segment gets the button's ID, assigns a callback, and manages the button. It assumes that quickHelpDialog was just created.

Widget  moreButton;
moreButton = DtHelpQuickDialogGetChild (quickHelpDialog,
 XtAddCallback (moreButton, XmNactivateCallback,
                MoreHelpCB, NULL);
 XtManageChild (moreButton);
