XmClipboardInquirePendingItems returns a list of
data_id/private_id pairs for the specified format name. A
data item is considered pending if the application originally passed
it by name, the application has not yet copied the data, and the item
has not been deleted from the clipboard. The application is
responsible for freeing the memory provided by this function to store
the list. To free the memory, call XtFree.
This function is used by an application when exiting, to determine
if the data that is passed by name should be sent to the clipboard.
- 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 of the clipboard functions that it
- Specifies a string that contains the name of the format for
which the list of data ID/private ID pairs is to be obtained.
- Specifies the address of the array of data ID/private ID pairs
for the specified format name. This argument is a type
XmClipboardPendingList. The application is
responsible for freeing the memory provided by this function for
storing the list.
- Specifies the number of items returned in the list. If there is
no data for the specified format name, or if there is no item on the
clipboard, this argument equals zero.
- 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.
