XtGetSelectionValue(3)			   XT FUNCTIONS 		   XtGetSelectionValue(3)

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, XtSelection-
	      CallbackProc 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 call-
		 back 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 con-
       verted to the target type.  The specified callback will be called some time after XtGet-
       SelectionValue 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 selec-
       tion 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 correspond-
       ing client data for each target.  XtGetSelectionValues does guarantee that all the conver-
       sions 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.
