Widget Basics

Motif has two basic classes of widgets: primitive and manager.

Within each of these, several different sub-classes of widget exist.

A primitive widget is designed to work as a single entity.

Manager widgets on the other hand are designed to be containers and will have primitive widgets placed under their control.

We will be studying a variety of these widgets throughout this course.

We will just give a brief listing of all the types of widgets for now.
