NAME

XmClipboardEndCopy - A clipboard function that ends a copy to the clipboard  

SYNOPSIS

#include <Xm/Xm.h> #include <Xm/CutPaste.h>

int XmClipboardEndCopy (display, window, item_id) Display * display; Window window; long item_id;
 

DESCRIPTION

XmClipboardEndCopy locks the clipboard from access by other applications, places data in the clipboard data structure, and unlocks the clipboard. Data items copied to the clipboard by XmClipboardCopy are not actually entered in the clipboard data structure until the call to XmClipboardEndCopy.

This function also frees up temporary storage that was allocated by XmClipboardStartCopy, which must be called before XmClipboardEndCopy. The latter function should not be called if XmClipboardCancelCopy has been called. Specifies a pointer to the Display structure that was returned in a previous call to XOpenDisplay or XtDisplay. 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 the number assigned to this data item. This number was returned by a previous call to XmClipboardStartCopy.
 

RETURN VALUE

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. The function failed because XmClipboardStartCopy was not called.
