NAME
       XSelectionEvent - SelectionNotify event structure

STRUCTURES
       The structure for SelectionNotify events contains:

       typedef struct {
	    int type;		     /* SelectionNotify */
	    unsigned long serial;    /* # of last request processed by server */
	    Bool send_event;	     /* true if this came from a SendEvent request */
	    Display *display;	     /* Display the event was read from */
	    Window requestor;
	    Atom selection;
	    Atom target;
	    Atom property;	     /* atom or None */
	    Time time;
       } XSelectionEvent;

       When you receive this event, the structure members are set as follows.

       The type member is set to the event type constant name that uniquely identifies it.  For
       example, when the X server reports a GraphicsExpose event to a client application, it
       sends an XGraphicsExposeEvent structure with the type member set to GraphicsExpose.  The
       display member is set to a pointer to the display the event was read on.  The send_event
       member is set to True if the event came from a SendEvent protocol request.  The serial
       member is set from the serial number reported in the protocol but expanded from the 16-bit
       least-significant bits to a full 32-bit value.  The window member is set to the window
       that is most useful to toolkit dispatchers.

       The requestor member is set to the window associated with the requestor of the selection.
       The selection member is set to the atom that indicates the selection.  For example, PRI-
       MARY is used for the primary selection.	The target member is set to the atom that indi-
       cates the converted type.  For example, PIXMAP is used for a pixmap.  The property member
       is set to the atom that indicates which property the result was stored on.  If the conver-
       sion failed, the property member is set to None.  The time member is set to the time the
       conversion took place and can be a timestamp or CurrentTime.
