Tk_OwnSelection(3) Tk Library Procedures Tk_OwnSelection(3)
Tk_OwnSelection - make a window the owner of the primary selection
Tk_OwnSelection(tkwin, selection, proc, clientData)
Tk_Window tkwin (in) Window that is to become new
Atom selection (in) The name of the selection to be
owned, such as XA_PRIMARY.
Tk_LostSelProc *proc (in) Procedure to invoke when tkwin
loses selection ownership
ClientData clientData (in) Arbitrary one-word value to
pass to proc.
Tk_OwnSelection arranges for tkwin to become the new owner of the
selection specified by the atom selection. After this call completes,
future requests for the selection will be directed to handlers created
for tkwin using Tk_CreateSelHandler. When tkwin eventually loses the
selection ownership, proc will be invoked so that the window can clean
itself up (e.g. by unhighlighting the selection). Proc should have
arguments and result that match the type Tk_LostSelProc:
typedef void Tk_LostSelProc(
The clientData parameter to proc is a copy of the clientData argument
given to Tk_OwnSelection, and is usually a pointer to a data structure
containing application-specific information about tkwin.
