       XmClipboardInquireLength — A clipboard function that returns the length of the stored data
       "XmClipboardInquireLength" "clipboard functions" "XmClipboardInquireLength"


       #include <Xm/CutPaste.h>
       int XmClipboardInquireLength (display, window, format_name, length)
               Display * display;
               Window  window;
               char    * format_name;
               unsigned long   * length;


       XmClipboardInquireLength returns the length of the data stored under  a  specified  format
       name  for  the  clipboard  data  item. If no data is found for the specified format, or if
       there is no item on the clipboard, this function returns a value of 0 (zero) in the length

       Any  format  passed by name is assumed to have length passed in a call to XmClipboardCopy,
       even though the data has not yet been transferred to the clipboard in that format.

       display   Specifies a pointer to the Display structure that was  returned  in  a  previous
                 call to XOpenDisplay or XtDisplay.

       window    Specifies  the  window ID of a widget that relates the application window to the
                 clipboard. The widget's window ID can be obtained through  XtWindow.   The  same
                 application  instance  should  pass  the same window ID to each of the clipboard
                 functions that it calls.

                 Specifies the name of the format for the data item.

       length    Specifies the length of the  next  data  item  in  the  specified  format.  This
                 argument  equals  0  (zero)  if no data is found for the specified format, or if
                 there is no item on the clipboard.


                 The function was successful.

                 The function failed because the clipboard was locked by another application. The
                 application  can  continue  to  call the function again with the same parameters
                 until the lock goes away. This gives the application the opportunity to  ask  if
                 the user wants to keep trying or to give up on the operation.

                 The  function  could  not find data on the clipboard corresponding to the format
                 requested. This could occur because the clipboard is empty; there is data on the
                 clipboard,  but not in the requested format; or the data in the requested format
                 was passed by name and is no longer available.
