XtGetSelectionValue, XtGetSelectionValues - obtain selection values


       #include <X11/Intrinsic.h>

       void XtGetSelectionValue(Widget w, Atom selection, Atom target, XtSe-
              lectionCallbackProc callback, XtPointer client_data, Time time);

       void XtGetSelectionValues(Widget w, Atom selection, Atom *targets, int
              count, XtSelectionCallbackProc callback, XtPointer *client_data,
              Time time);


       callback  Specifies the callback procedure that is to be called when
                 the selection value has been obtained.

                 Specifies the argument that is to be passed to the specified
                 procedure when it is called.

                 Specifies the client data (one for each target type) that is
                 passed to the callback procedure when it is called for that

       count     Specifies the length of the targets and client_data lists.

       selection Specifies the particular selection desired (that is, primary
                 or secondary).

       target    Specifies the type of the information that is needed about
                 the selection.

       targets   Specifies the types of information that is needed about the

       time      Specifies the timestamp that indicates when the selection
                 value is desired.

       w         Specifies the widget that is making the request.


       The XtGetSelectionValue function requests the value of the selection
       that has been converted to the target type.  The specified callback
       will be called some time after XtGetSelectionValue is called; in fact,
       it may be called before or after XtGetSelectionValue returns.

       The XtGetSelectionValues function is similar to XtGetSelectionValue
       except that it takes a list of target types and a list of client data
       and obtains the current value of the selection converted to each of the
       targets.  The effect is as if each target were specified in a separate
       call to XtGetSelectionValue.  The callback is called once with the cor-
       responding client data for each target.  XtGetSelectionValues does
       guarantee that all the conversions will use the same selection value
       because the ownership of the selection cannot change in the middle of
       the list, as would be when calling XtGetSelectionValue repeatedly.
