Answer: Andrew Lister (lister@bain.oz.au) writes: The XbaeMatrix widget allows
a bitmaps in a cell.  There will be support for colour pixmaps to be displayed
in version 4.4 which should be available very soon. (The XbaeMatrix can be
made to look and behave like a list widget.  The widget is compatible with
Motif 1.2 and Motif 2.0.)

Beginning with version 4.7, XbaeMatrix is being maintained by the Lesstif
project.  The current version is version 4.8.  Source code and a FAQ are
available from:

Alan Peery (peery@isc.tamu.edu) writes: Motif 2.0 introduced the "container"
widget, which offers 2-D icon and text layout similar to that found in many
file management programs.  It could probably be used as a 1-D list widget
also.

A previous source wrote: In Motif 1.x, you cannot do this.  The list contains
XmStrings, and these only allow text in various character sets. The workaround
is to define your font containing the icons you want. Then you can create a
fontlist containing your icon font and the font you want the text in, and then
make your items multi-segment XmStrings where the first segment contains the
code of the icon you want with a charset that matches the icon font in your
fontlist and the second segment with a charset matching the text font.
