XtSetSelectionParameters(3)		   XT FUNCTIONS 	      XtSetSelectionParameters(3)

NAME
       XtSetSelectionParameters - specify target parameters for a selection request with a single
       target

SYNTAX
       void XtSetSelectionParameters(Widget requestor, Atom selection, Atom type, XtPointer
	      value, unsigned long length, int format);

ARGUMENTS
       requestor Specifies the widget making the request. Must be of class Core or any subclass
		 thereof.

       selection Specifies the atom that names the selection.

       type	 Specifies the type of the property in which the parameters will be passed.

       value	 Specifies a pointer to the parameters.

       length	 Specifies the number of elements containing data in value, each element of a
		 sized indicated by format.

       format	 Specifies the size in bits of the data in the elements of value.

DESCRIPTION
       The specified parameters will be copied and stored in a new property of the specified type
       and format on the requestor's window. To initiate a selection request with a target and
       these parameters, a subsequent call to XtGetSelectionValue or to XtGetSelectionValueIncre-
       mental specifying the same requestor widget and selection atom will generate a ConvertSe-
       lection request referring referring to the property containing the parameters. If XtSet-
       SelectionParameters is called more than once with the same widget and selection without a
       call to specify a request, the most recently specified parameters are used in the subse-
       quent request.

       The possible values of format may be 8, 16, or 32. If the format is 8, the elements of
       value are assumed to be sizeof(char); if 16, sizeof(short); if 32, sizeof(long).

       To generate a MULTIPLE target request with parameters for any of the multiple targets of
       the selection request, precede individual calls to XtGetSelectionValue and XtGetSelection-
       ValueIncremental with corresponding individual calls to XtSetSelectionParameters, and
       enclose these all within XtCreateSelectionRequest and XtSendSelectionRequest.  XtGetSelec-
       tionValues and XtGetSelectionValuesIncremental cannot be used  to make selection requests
       with parameterized targets.
