NAME

       XmConvertUnits  —  A function that converts a value in one unit type to
       another unit type "XmConvertUnits"

SYNOPSIS

       #include <Xm/Xm.h>
       int XmConvertUnits(
       Widget widget,
       int orientation,
       int from_unit_type,
       int from_value,
       int to_unit_type);

DESCRIPTION

       XmConvertUnits converts the value and returns it as  the  return  value
       from  the function.  For resources of type, dimension, or position, you
       can specify  units  using  the  syntax  described  in  the  XmNunitType
       resource of the XmPrimitive reference page.

       widget    Specifies the widget for which the data is to be converted.

       orientation
                 Specifies  whether  the  converter  uses  the  horizontal  or
                 vertical screen resolution when performing  the  conversions.
                 The  orientation parameter can have values of XmHORIZONTAL or
                 XmVERTICAL.

       from_unit_type
                 Specifies the current unit type of the supplied value

       from_value
                 Specifies the value to be converted

       to_unit_type
                 Converts the value to the unit type specified

       The parameters from_unit_type and to_unit_type can have  the  following
       values:

       XmPIXELS  All  values  provided  to  the  widget  are  treated as pixel
                 values. This is the default for the resource.

       XmMILLIMETERS
                 All values provided to the widget are treated  as  millimeter
                 values.

       Xm100TH_MILLIMETERS
                 All  values  provided to the widget are treated as 1/100 of a
                 millimeter.

       XmCENTIMETERS
                 All values provided to the widget are treated  as  centimeter
                 values.

       XmINCHES  All values provided to the widget are treated as inch values.

       Xm1000TH_INCHES
                 All values provided to the widget are treated as 1/1000 of an
                 inch.

       XmPOINTS  All values provided  to  the  widget  are  treated  as  point
                 values.   A   point   is  a  unit  used  in  text  processing
                 applications and is defined as 1/72 of an inch.

       Xm100TH_POINTS
                 All values provided to the widget are treated as 1/100  of  a
                 point.   A  point is a unit typically used in text processing
                 applications and is defined as 1/72 of an inch.

       XmFONT_UNITS
                 All values provided to the widget are treated as normal  font
                 units.  A  font  unit has horizontal and vertical components.
                 These   are   the   values   of   the   XmScreen    resources
                 XmNhorizontalFontUnit and XmNverticalFontUnit.

       Xm100TH_FONT_UNITS
                 All  values  provided to the widget are treated as 1/100 of a
                 font  unit.   A  font  unit  has  horizontal   and   vertical
                 components.   These  are the values of the XmScreen resources
                 XmNhorizontalFontUnit and XmNverticalFontUnit.

RETURN

       Returns the converted value.  If a NULL widget, incorrect  orientation,
       or  incorrect  unit_type  is  supplied  as  parameter data, 0 (zero) is
       returned.
