NAME

       XtGetSelectionValue, XtGetSelectionValues - obtain selection values

SYNTAX

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

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

ARGUMENTS

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

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

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

       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 selection.

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

       w         Specifies the widget that is making the request.

DESCRIPTION

       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
       corresponding 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.
