XtCreatePopupShell, XtVaCreatePopupShell - create a popup shell


       #include <X11/Intrinsic.h>

       Widget XtCreatePopupShell(const char *name, WidgetClass widget_class,
              Widget parent, ArgList args, Cardinal num_args);

       Widget XtVaCreatePopupShell(const char *name, WidgetClass widget_class,
              Widget parent, ...);


       args      Specifies the argument list to override the resource

       name      Specifies the text name for the created shell widget.

       num_args  Specifies the number of arguments in the argument list.

       parent    Specifies the parent widget.

                 Specifies the widget class pointer for the created shell wid-

       ...       Specifies the variable argument list to override the resource


       The XtCreatePopupShell function ensures that the specified class is a
       subclass of Shell and, rather than using insert_child to attach the
       widget to the parent's children list, attaches the shell to the par-
       ent's pop-ups list directly.

       A spring-loaded pop-up invoked from a translation table already must
       exist at the time that the translation is invoked, so the translation
       manager can find the shell by name.  Pop-ups invoked in other ways can
       be created "on-the-fly" when the pop-up actually is needed.  This
       delayed creation of the shell is particularly useful when you pop up an
       unspecified number of pop-ups.  You can look to see if an appropriate
       unused shell (that is, not currently popped up) exists and create a new
       shell if needed.
