XtSetKeyboardFocus(3) XT FUNCTIONS XtSetKeyboardFocus(3)
XtSetKeyboardFocus - focus events on a child widget
void XtSetKeyboardFocus(Widget subtree, Widget descendant);
subtree Specifies either the widget in the subtree structure which is
to receive the keyboard event, or None. Note that it is not
an error to specify None when no input focus was previously
Specifies the widget for which the keyboard focus is to be
If a future KeyPress or KeyRelease event occurs within the specified
subtree, XtSetKeyboardFocus causes XtDispatchEvent to remap and send
the event to the specified descendant widget.
When there is no modal cascade, keyboard events can occur within a
widget W in one of three ways:
o W has the X input focus.
o W has the keyboard focus of one of its ancestors, and the event
occurs within the ancestor or one of the ancestor's descendants.
o No ancestor of W has a descendant within the keyboard focus, and
the pointer is within W.
When there is a modal cascade, a widget W receives keyboard events if
an ancestor of W is in the active subset of the modal cascade and one
or more of the previous conditions is True.
When subtree or one of its descendants acquires the X input focus or
the pointer moves into the subtree such that keyboard events would now
be delivered to subtree, a FocusIn event is generated for the
descendant if FocusNotify events have been selected by the descendant.
Similarly, when W loses the X input focus or the keyboard focus for one
of its ancestors, a FocusOut event is generated for descendant if
FocusNotify events have been selected by the descendant.
