NAME

       XtSetSelectionParameters - specify target parameters for a selection request with a single
       target

SYNTAX

       void XtSetSelectionParameters(Widget requestor, Atom selection, Atom type, XtPointer
              value, unsigned long length, int format);

ARGUMENTS

       requestor Specifies the widget making the request. Must be of class Core or any subclass
                 thereof.

       selection Specifies the atom that names the selection.

       type      Specifies the type of the property in which the parameters will be passed.

       value     Specifies a pointer to the parameters.

       length    Specifies the number of elements containing data in value, each element of a
                 sized indicated by format.

       format    Specifies the size in bits of the data in the elements of value.

DESCRIPTION

       The specified parameters will be copied and stored in a new property of the specified type
       and format on the requestor's window. To initiate a selection request with a target and
       these parameters, a subsequent call to XtGetSelectionValue or to
       XtGetSelectionValueIncremental specifying the same requestor widget and selection atom
       will generate a ConvertSelection request referring referring to the property containing
       the parameters. If XtSetSelectionParameters is called more than once with the same widget
       and selection without a call to specify a request, the most recently specified parameters
       are used in the subsequent request.

       The possible values of format may be 8, 16, or 32. If the format is 8, the elements of
       value are assumed to be sizeof(char); if 16, sizeof(short); if 32, sizeof(long).

       To generate a MULTIPLE target request with parameters for any of the multiple targets of
       the selection request, precede individual calls to XtGetSelectionValue and
       XtGetSelectionValueIncremental with corresponding individual calls to
       XtSetSelectionParameters, and enclose these all within XtCreateSelectionRequest and
       XtSendSelectionRequest.  XtGetSelectionValues and XtGetSelectionValuesIncremental cannot
       be used  to make selection requests with parameterized targets.
