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 XmClipboardCopy is made with a
NULL buffer parameter. Additional calls to this function append new
data to the existing data.
- Specifies a pointer to the Display structure
that was returned in a previous call to XOpenDisplay
- Specifies a widget's window ID that relates the application
window to the clipboard. The widget's window ID can be obtained by
using XtWindow. The same application instance should
pass the same window ID to each clipboard function it calls.
- Specifies an identifying number assigned to the data item that
uniquely identifies the data item and the format. This number was
assigned by XmClipboardCopy to the data
- Specifies the buffer from which the clipboard copies the data.
- Specifies the number of bytes in the data item.
- Specifies the private data that the application wants to store
with the data item.
- The function is 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.
