       XmClipboardRetrieve  —  A clipboard function that retrieves a data item from the clipboard
       "XmClipboardRetrieve" "clipboard functions" "XmClipboardRetrieve"


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


       XmClipboardRetrieve retrieves the current data item from clipboard storage. It  returns  a
       warning  if  the clipboard is locked, if there is no data on the clipboard, or if the data
       needs to be truncated because the buffer length is too short.

       Between a call to XmClipboardStartRetrieve and a call to XmClipboardEndRetrieve,  multiple
       calls  to XmClipboardRetrieve with the same format name result in data being incrementally
       copied from the clipboard until the data in that format has all been copied.

       The return value XmClipboardTruncate from calls to XmClipboardRetrieve indicates that more
       data  remains  to  be copied in the given format.  It is recommended that any calls to the
       Inquire functions that the application needs to make to effect the copy from the clipboard
       be   made   between   the   call   to  XmClipboardStartRetrieve  and  the  first  call  to
       XmClipboardRetrieve. This way, the application does not need to call  XmClipboardLock  and

       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 a format in which the data is stored on the clipboard.

       buffer    Specifies  the  buffer  to which the application wants the clipboard to copy the
                 data.  The function allocates space to hold the data returned into  the  buffer.
                 The   application  is  responsible  for  managing  this  allocated  space.   The
                 application can recover this allocated space by calling XtFree.

       length    Specifies the length of the application buffer.

       num_bytes Specifies the number of bytes of data copied into the application buffer.

                 Specifies the private data stored with the data item  by  the  application  that
                 placed  the data item on the clipboard. If the application did not store private
                 data with the data item, this argument returns 0 (zero).


                 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  data  returned is truncated because the user did not provide a buffer large
                 enough to hold the data.

                 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.
