XStringListToTextProperty, XTextPropertyToStringList, XFreeStringList, XTextProperty - convert string lists and text property structure SYNTAX
Status XStringListToTextProperty(list, count, text_prop_return) char **list; int count; XTextProperty *text_prop_return; Status XTextPropertyToStringList(text_prop, list_return, count_return) XTextProperty *text_prop; char ***list_return; int *count_return; void XFreeStringList(list) char **list; ARGUMENTS
count Specifies the number of strings. count_return Returns the number of strings. list Specifies the list of strings to be freed. list Specifies a list of null-terminated character strings. list_return Returns a list of null-terminated character strings. text_prop Specifies the XTextProperty structure to be used. text_prop_return Returns the XTextProperty structure. DESCRIPTION
The XStringListToTextProperty function sets the specified XTextProperty to be of type STRING (format 8) with a value representing the con- catenation of the specified list of null-separated character strings. An extra null byte (which is not included in the nitems member) is stored at the end of the value field of text_prop_return. The strings are assumed (without verification) to be in the STRING encoding. If insufficient memory is available for the new value string, XStringListToTextProperty does not set any fields in the XTextProperty structure and returns a zero status. Otherwise, it returns a nonzero status. To free the storage for the value field, use XFree. The XTextPropertyToStringList function returns a list of strings representing the null-separated elements of the specified XTextProperty structure. The data in text_prop must be of type STRING and format 8. Multiple elements of the property (for example, the strings in a disjoint text selection) are separated by NULL (encoding 0). The contents of the property are not null-terminated. If insufficient memory is available for the list and its elements, XTextPropertyToStringList sets no return values and returns a zero status. Otherwise, it returns a nonzero status. To free the storage for the list and its contents, use XFreeStringList. The XFreeStringList function releases memory allocated by XmbTextPropertyToTextList, Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList and XTextProperty- ToStringList and the missing charset list allocated by XCreateFontSet. STRUCTURES
The XTextProperty structure contains: typedef struct { unsigned char *value; Atom encoding; int format; unsigned long nitems; } XTextProperty; SEE ALSO
