XmDataFieldCut — A DataField function that copies the primary selection to the clipboard and deletes the selected text


#include <Xm/DataF.h>
Boolean XmDataFieldCut(
Widget widget,
Time time);


XmDataFieldCut copies the primary selected text to the clipboard and then deletes the primary selected text. This routine calls the widget's XmNvalueChangedCallback and verification callbacks, either XmNmodifyVerifyCallback or XmNmodifyVerifyCallbackWcs, or both. If both verification callback lists are registered, the procedures of the XmNmodifyVerifyCallback list are executed first and the resulting data is passed to the XmNmodifyVerifyCallbackWcs callbacks.

This routine calls the XmNconvertCallback procedures, possibly multiple times, with the selection member of the XmConvertCallbackStruct set to CLIPBOARD and with the parm member set to XmMOVE. If the transfer is successful, this routine then calls the XmNconvertCallback procedures for the CLIPBOARD selection and the DELETE target.

Specifies the DataField widget ID.
Specifies the time at which the selection value is to be modified. This should be the time of the event that triggered this request.

This function returns False if the primary selection is NULL, if the widget does not own the primary selection, if the function is unable to gain ownership of the clipboard selection, or if no data is placed on the clipboard. Otherwise, it returns True.
