XmClipboardCopyByName -- A clipboard function that copies a data item passed by name
int XmClipboardCopyByName (display, window, data_id,
buffer, length, private_id)
Display * display;
unsigned long length;
XmClipboardCopyByName copies the actual data for a data item that was previously passed by
name to the clipboard. Data is considered to be passed by name when a call to XmClipboard-
Copy is made with a NULL buffer parameter. Additional calls to this function append new
data to the existing data.
display Specifies a pointer to the Display structure that was returned in a previous
call to XOpenDisplay or XtDisplay.
window Specifies the window ID of a widget that relates the application window to the
clipboard. The widget's window ID can be obtained through XtWindow. The same
application instance should pass the same window ID to each clipboard function
data_id Specifies an identifying number assigned to the data item that uniquely identi-
fies the data item and the format. This number was assigned by XmClipboardCopy
to the data item.
buffer Specifies the buffer from which the clipboard copies the data.
length Specifies the number of bytes in the data item.
Specifies the private data that the application wants to store with the data
The function was successful.
The function failed because the clipboard was locked by another application. The
application can continue to call the function again with the same parameters
until the lock goes away. This gives the application the opportunity to ask if
the user wants to keep trying or to give up on the operation.
