Tk_ClearSelection(3)                                           Tk Library Procedures                                          Tk_ClearSelection(3)

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

NAME
Tk_ClearSelection - Deselect a selection SYNOPSIS
#include <tk.h> Tk_ClearSelection(tkwin, selection) ARGUMENTS
Tk_Window tkwin (in) The selection will be cleared from the display containing this window. Atom selection (in) The name of selection to be cleared. _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
Tk_ClearSelection cancels the selection specified by the atom selection for the display containing tkwin. The selection need not be in tkwin itself or even in tkwin's application. If there is a window anywhere on tkwin's display that owns selection, the window will be notified and the selection will be cleared. If there is no owner for selection on the display, then the procedure has no effect. KEYWORDS
clear, selection Tk 4.0 Tk_ClearSelection(3)

NAME
Tk_OwnSelection - make a window the owner of the primary selection SYNOPSIS
#include <tk.h> Tk_OwnSelection(tkwin, selection, proc, clientData) ARGUMENTS
Tk_Window tkwin (in) Window that is to become new selection owner. Atom selection (in) The name of the selection to be owned, such as XA_PRIMARY. Tk_LostSelProc *proc (in) Procedure to invoke when tkwin loses selection ownership later. ClientData clientData (in) Arbitrary one-word value to pass to proc. _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
Tk_OwnSelection arranges for tkwin to become the new owner of the selection specified by the atom selection. After this call completes, future requests for the selection will be directed to handlers created for tkwin using Tk_CreateSelHandler. When tkwin eventually loses the selection ownership, proc will be invoked so that the window can clean itself up (e.g. by unhighlighting the selection). Proc should have arguments and result that match the type Tk_LostSelProc: typedef void Tk_LostSelProc(ClientData clientData); The clientData parameter to proc is a copy of the clientData argument given to Tk_OwnSelection, and is usually a pointer to a data struc- ture containing application-specific information about tkwin.

own, selection owner Tk 4.0 Tk_OwnSelection(3)
