Combining Widgets

All the programs studied so far have used a top level (application) shell widget and a single child widget (the PushButton).

Most Motif programs will use a combination of many widgets.

For example, a text editor program may use buttons, menus, text areas etc.. Widgets of this type are common in many programs.

In this section we will look at how we can achieve this.
