XtInsertEventTypeHandler(3)		   XT FUNCTIONS 	      XtInsertEventTypeHandler(3)

NAME
       XtInsertEventTypeHandler, XtRemoveEventTypeHandler, XtRegisterExtensionSelector, XtSet-
       EventDispatcher, XtDispatchEventToWidget - extension event handling

SYNTAX
       void XtInsertEventTypeHandler(Widget widget, int event_type, XtPointer select_data,
	      XtEventHandler proc, XtPointer client_data, XtListPosition position);

       void XtRemoveEventTypeHandler(Widget widget, int event_type, XtPointer select_data,
	      XtEventHandler proc, XtPointer client_data);

       void XtRegisterExtensionSelector(Display* display, int min_event_type, int max_event_type,
	      XtExtensionSelectProc proc, XtPointer client_data);

       XtEventDispatchProc XtSetEventDispatcher(Widget widget, int event_type, XtEventDispatch-
	      Proc proc);

       Boolean XtDispatchEventToWidget(Widget widget, XEvent* event);

ARGUMENTS
       widget	 Specifies the widget for this event handler.  Must be of class Core or any sub-
		 class thereof.

       event_type
		 Specifies the event type.

       select_data
		 Specifies data used to select or deselect events from the server.

       proc	 Specifies the proc.

       client_data
		 Specifies additional data to be passed to the event handler.

       position  Specifies when the event handler is to be called relative to other previously
		 registered handlers.

       display	 Specifies the display.

       min_event_type, max_event_type
		 Specifies the range of event types for this extension.

       event	 Specifies a pointer to the event to be dispatched.

DESCRIPTION
       The XtInsertEventTypeHandler function registers a procedure with the dispatch mechanism
       that is to be called when an event that matches the specified event_type is dispatched to
       the specified widget.

       If event_type is one of the core X protocol events then select_data must be a pointer to a
       value of type EventMask, indicating the event mask to be used to select for the desired
       event.  This event mask will be included in the value returned by XtBuildEventMask.  If
       the widget is realized XtInsertEventTypeHandler calls XSelectInput if necessary. Specify-
       ing NULL for select_data is equivalent to specifying a pointer to an event mask containing
       0. This is similar to the XtInsertRawEventHandler function.

       If event_type specifies an extension event type then the semantics of the data pointed to
       by select_data are defined by the extension selector registered for the specified event
       type.

       In either case the Intrinsics are not required to copy the data pointed to by select_data,
       so the caller must ensure that it remains valid as long as the event handler remains reg-
       istered with this value of select_data.

       The position argument allows the client to control the order of the invocation of event
       handlers registered for the same event type. If the client does not care about the order,
       it should normally specify XtListTail, which registers this event handler after any previ-
       ously registered handlers for this event type.

       The XtRemoveEventTypeHandler function unregisters an even handler registered with
       XtInsertEventTypeHandler for the specified event type. The request is ignored if
       client_data does not match the value given with the handler was registered.

       If event_type specifies on of the core X protocol events, select_data must be a pointer to
       a value of type EventMask, indicating the mask to be used to deselect for the appropriate
       event.  If the widget is realized, XtRemoveEventTypeHandler calls XSelectInput if neces-
       sary. Specifying NULL for select_data is equivalent to specifying a pointer to an event
       mask containing 0. This is similar to the XtRemoveRawEventHandler function.

       If event_type specifies an extension event type then the semantics of the data pointed to
       by select_data are defined by the extension selector registered for the specified event
       type.

       The XtRegisterExtensionSelector function registers a procedure to arrange for the delivery
       of extension events to widgets.

       If min_event_type and max_event_type match the parameters to a previous call to XtRegis-
       terExtensionSelector for the same display, the proc and client_data replace the previously
       registered values. If the range specified by min_event_type and max_event_type overlaps
       the range of the parameters to a previous call for the same display in any other way, an
       error results.

       The XtSetEventDispatcher function registers the event dispatcher procedure specified by
       proc for events with the type event_type. The previously registered dispatcher (or the
       default dispatcher if there was no previously registered dispatcher) is returned. If proc
       is NULL, the default procedure is restored for the specified type.

       In the future, when XtDispatchEvent is called with an event of event_type, the specified
       proc (or the default dispatcher) will be invoked to determine a widget ot which to dis-
       patch the event.

       The XtDispatchEventToWidget function scans the list of registered event handlers for the
       specified widget and calls each handler that has been registered for the specified event
       type, subject to the continue_to_dispatch value returned by each handler. The Intrinsics
       behave as if event handlers were registered at the head of the list for Expose, NoExpose,
       GraphicsExpose, and VisibilityNotify events to invoke the widget's expose procedure
       according to the exposure compression rules and to update the widget's visible field if
       visible_interest is True.  These internal event handlers never set continue_to_dispatch to
       False.

       XtDispatchEventToWidget returns True if any event handler was called and False otherwise.
