XmDataFieldSetSelection man page

XmDataFieldSetSelection — A DataField function that sets the primary selection of the text

Synopsis

#include <Xm/DataF.h>
void XmDataFieldSetSelection(
Widget widget,
XmTextPosition first,
XmTextPosition last,
Time time);

Description

XmDataFieldSetSelection sets the primary selection of the text in the widget. It also sets the insertion cursor position to the last position of the selection and calls the widget's XmNmotionVerifyCallback callbacks. XmDataFieldSetSelection always generates an XmNgainPrimaryCallback unless it fails to take ownership of the primary text selection.

widget

Specifies the DataField widget ID

first

Marks the first character position of the text to be selected

last

Marks the last position of the text to be selected

time

Specifies the time at which the selection value is desired. This should be the same as the time of the event that triggered this request. One source of a valid time stamp is the function XtLastTimestampProcessed.
