NAME

XmDragContext --- The DragContext widget class  

SYNOPSIS

#include <Xm/DragDrop.h>
 

DESCRIPTION

DragContexts are special widgets used in drag and drop transactions. A DragContext is implemented as a widget, but a client does not explicitly create a DragContext widget. Instead, a client initiates a drag and drop transaction by calling XmDragStart, and this routine initializes and returns a DragContext widget. There is a unique DragContext for each drag operation. The toolkit frees a DragContext when a transaction is complete; therefore, an application programmer should not explicitly destroy a DragContext.

Initiator and receiver clients both use DragContexts to track the state of a transaction. When the initiator and receiver of a transaction are in the same client, they share the same DragContext instance. If they are in different clients, there are two separate DragContexts. In this case, the initiator calls XmDragStart and the toolkit provides a DragContext for the receiver client. The only resources pertinent to the receiver are XmNexportTargets and XmNnumExportTargets. These can both be passed as arguments to the XmDropSiteRetrieve function to obtain information about the current drop site.

In general, in order to receive data, a drop site must share at least one target type and operation in common with a drag source. The DragContext resource, XmNexportTargets, identifies the selection targets for the drag source. These export targets are compared with the XmNimportTargets resource list specified by a drop site. The DragContext resource, XmNdragOperations, identifies the valid operations that can be applied to the source data by the initiator. The drop site counterpart resource is XmNdropSiteOperations, which indicates a drop site's supported operations.

A client uses DragIcon widgets to define the drag-over animation effects associated with a given drag and drop transaction. An initiator specifies a set of drag icons, selects a blending model, and sets foreground and background cursor colors with DragContext resources.

The type of drag-over visual used to represent a drag operation depends on the drag protocol style. In preregister mode, the server is grabbed, and either a cursor or a pixmap may be used as a drag-over visual. In dynamic mode, drag-over visuals must be implemented with the X cursor. If the resulting drag protocol style is Drop Only or None and the XmNdragInitiatorProtocolStyle is XmDRAG_DYNAMIC or XmDRAG_PREFER_DYNAMIC, then a dynamic visual style (cursor) is used. Otherwise, a preregister visual style is used.  

Classes

DragContext inherits behavior and resources from Core.

The class pointer is xmDragContextClass.

The class name is XmDragContext.  

New Resources

The following table defines a set of widget resources used by the programmer to specify data. The programmer can also set the resource values for the inherited classes to set attributes for this widget. To reference a resource by name or by class in a .Xdefaults file, remove the XmN or XmC prefix and use the remaining letters. To specify one of the defined values for a resource in a .Xdefaults file, remove the Xm prefix and use the remaining letters (in either lowercase or uppercase, but include any underscores between words). The codes in the access column indicate if the given resource can be set at creation time (C), set by using XtSetValues (S), retrieved by using XtGetValues (G), or is not applicable (N/A).

XmNblendModel
Specifies which combination of DragIcons are blended to produce a drag-over visual.
XmBLEND_ALL
Blends all three DragIcons: the source, state and operation icons. The icons are layered from top to bottom with the operation icon on top and the source icon on the bottom. The hotspot is derived from the state icon.
XmBLEND_STATE_SOURCE
Blends the state and source icons only. The hotspot is derived from the state icon.
XmBLEND_JUST_SOURCE
Specifies that only the source icon is used, which the initiator updates as required.
XmBLEND_NONE
Specifies that no drag-over visual is generated. The client tracks the drop site status through callback routines and updates the drag-over visuals as necessary.
XmNclientData
Specifies the client data to be passed to XmNconvertProc when it is invoked.
XmNconvertProc
If XmNincremental is True, specifies a procedure of type XtConvertSelectionIncrProc that converts the source data to the format(s) requested by the receiver client. The widget argument passed to this procedure is the DragContext widget. The selection atom passed is _MOTIF_DROP. If XmNincremental is False, the procedure is an XtConvertSelectionProc, and should ignore the max_length, client_data, and request_id arguments and should handle the conversion atomically. Data returned by XmNconvertProc must be allocated using XtMalloc, and will be freed automatically by the toolkit after the transfer. For additional information on selection conversion procedures, see X Toolkit Intrinsics---C Language Interface.
XmNcursorBackground
Specifies the background pixel value of the cursor.
XmNcursorForeground
Specifies the foreground pixel value of the cursor when the state icon is not blended. This resource defaults to the foreground color of the widget passed to the XmDragStart function.
XmNdragDropFinishCallback
Specifies the list of callbacks that are called when the transaction is completed. The type of the structure whose address is passed to this callback is XmDragDropFinishCallbackStruct. The reason sent by the callback is XmCR_DRAG_DROP_FINISH.
XmNdragMotionCallback
Specifies the list of callbacks that are invoked when the pointer moves. The type of structure whose address is passed to this callback is XmDragMotionCallbackStruct. The reason sent by the callback is XmCR_DRAG_MOTION.
XmNdragOperations
Specifies the set of valid operations associated with an initiator client for a drag transaction. This resource is a bit mask that is formed by combining one or more of the following values using a bitwise operation such as inclusive OR (|): XmDROP_COPY, XmDROP_LINK, XmDROP_MOVE. The value XmDROP_NOOP for this resource indicates that no operations are valid. For Text and TextField widgets, this resource is set to XmDROP_COPY | XmDROP_MOVE; for List widgets, it is set to XmDROP_COPY.
XmNdropFinishCallback
Specifies the list of callbacks that are invoked when the drop is completed. The type of the structure whose address is passed to this callback is XmDropFinishCallbackStruct. The reason sent by the callback is XmCR_DROP_FINISH.

XmNdropSiteLeaveCallback
Specifies the list of callbacks that are invoked when the pointer leaves a drop site. The type of the structure whose address is passed to this callback is XmDropSiteLeaveCallbackStruct. The reason sent by the callback is XmCR_DROP_SITE_LEAVE.
XmNdropStartCallback
Specifies the list of callbacks that are invoked when a drop is initiated. The type of the structure whose address is passed to this callback is XmDropStartCallbackStruct. The reason sent by the callback is XmCR_DROP_START.
XmNexportTargets
Specifies the list of target atoms associated with this source. This resource identifies the selection targets this source can be converted to.
XmNincremental
Specifies a Boolean value that indicates whether the transfer on the initiator side uses the Xt incremental selection transfer mechanism described in X Toolkit Intrinsics---C Language Interface. If the value is True, the initiator uses incremental transfer; if the value is False, the initiator uses atomic transfer.
XmNinvalidCursorForeground
Specifies the foreground pixel value of the cursor when the state is invalid. This resource defaults to the value of the XmNcursorForeground resource.
XmNnoneCursorForeground
Specifies the foreground pixel value of the cursor when the state is none. This resource defaults to the value of the XmNcursorForeground resource.
XmNnumExportTargets
Specifies the number of entries in the list of export targets.
XmNoperationChangedCallback
Specifies the list of callbacks that are invoked when the drag is started and when the user requests that a different operation be applied to the drop. The type of the structure whose address is passed to this callback is XmOperationChangedCallbackStruct. The reason sent by the callback is XmCR_OPERATION_CHANGED.
XmNoperationCursorIcon
Specifies the cursor icon used to designate the type of operation performed by the drag transaction. If NULL, XmScreen resources provide default icons for copy, link, and move operations.
XmNsourceCursorIcon
Specifies the cursor icon used to represent the source when a dynamic visual style is used. If NULL, the XmNdefaultSourceCursorIcon resource of XmScreen provides a default cursor icon.
XmNsourcePixmapIcon

Callback Information

Each of the DragContext callbacks has an associated callback structure.

A pointer to the following structure is passed to the XmNdragDropFinishCallback callback:

typedef struct
{
        int reason;
        XEvent  *event;
        Time timeStamp;
}XmDragDropFinishCallbackStruct, *XmDragDropFinishCallback;
reason
Indicates why the callback was invoked
event
Points to the XEvent that triggered the callback
timeStamp
Specifies the time at which either the drag or the drop was completed

A pointer to the following structure is passed to callbacks for XmNdragMotionCallback:

typedef struct
{
        int reason;
        XEvent *event;
        Time timeStamp;
        unsigned char operation;
        unsigned char operations;
        unsigned char dropSiteStatus;
        Position x;
        Position y;
}XmDragMotionCallbackStruct, *XmDragMotionCallback;
reason
Indicates why the callback was invoked.
event
Points to the XEvent that triggered the callback.
timeStamp
Specifies the timestamp of the logical event.
operation
Identifies an operation.
If the toolkit has just called a DropSite's XmNdragProc, the toolkit initializes operation to the value of the operation member of the XmDragProcCallbackStruct at the time the DropSite's XmNdragProc returns.
If the toolkit has not called an XmNdragProc and the pointer is within an active drop site, the toolkit initializes operation by selecting an operation from the bitwise AND of the initial value of the operations member and the value of the DropSite's XmNdropSiteOperations resource. The toolkit searches this set first for XmDROP_MOVE, then for XmDROP_COPY, then for XmDROP_LINK, and initializes operation to the first operation it finds in the set. If the toolkit finds none of these operations in the set, it initializes operation to XmDROP_NOOP.
If the toolkit has not called an XmNdragProc and the pointer is not within an active drop site, the toolkit initializes operation by selecting an operation from the initial value of the operations member. The toolkit searches this set first for XmDROP_MOVE, then for XmDROP_COPY, then for XmDROP_LINK, and initializes operation to the first operation it finds in the set. If the toolkit finds none of these operations in the set, it initializes operation to XmDROP_NOOP.
operations
Indicates the set of operations supported for the source data.
If the toolkit has just called a DropSite's XmNdragProc, the toolkit initializes operations to the bitwise AND of the DropSite's XmNdropOperations and the value of the operations member of the XmDragProcCallbackStruct at the time the DropSite's XmNdragProc returns. If the resulting set of operations is empty, the toolkit initializes operations to XmDROP_NOOP.
If the toolkit has not called an XmNdragProc and the user does not select an operation (by pressing a modifier key), the toolkit initializes operations to the value of the DragContext's XmNdragOperations resource.
If the toolkit has not called an XmNdragProc and the user does select an operation, the toolkit initializes operations to the bitwise AND of the corresponding operation and the value of the DragContext's XmNdragOperations resource. If the resulting set of operations is empty, the toolkit initializes operations to XmDROP_NOOP.
dropSiteStatus
Indicates whether or not a drop site is valid.
If the toolkit has just called a DropSite's XmNdragProc, the toolkit initializes dropSiteStatus to the value of the dropSiteStatus member of the XmDragProcCallbackStruct at the time the DropSite's XmNdragProc returns.
If the toolkit has not called an XmNdragProc, it initializes dropSiteStatus as follows: the toolkit initializes dropSiteStatus to XmNO_DROP_SITE if the pointer is over an inactive drop site or is not over a drop site. The toolkit initializes dropSiteStatus to XmDROP_SITE_VALID if all the following conditions are met:
The pointer is over an active drop site.
The DragContext's XmNexportTargets and the DropSite's XmNimportTargets are compatible.
The initial value of the operation member is not XmDROP_NOOP.
Otherwise, the toolkit initializes dropSiteStatus to XmDROP_SITE_INVALID.

A pointer to the following structure is passed for the XmNdropFinishCallback callback:

typedef struct
{
        int reason;
        XEvent *event;

If the pointer is over an active drop site when the drop begins, the toolkit initializes operation to the value of the operation member of the XmDropProcCallbackStruct at the time the DropSite's XmNdropProc returns.
If the pointer is not over an active drop site when the drop begins, the toolkit initializes operation by selecting an operation from the initial value of the operations member. The toolkit searches this set first for XmDROP_MOVE, then for XmDROP_COPY, then for XmDROP_LINK, and initializes operation to the first operation it finds in the set. If it finds none of these operations in the set, it initializes operation to XmDROP_NOOP.
operations

If the pointer is over an active drop site when the drop begins, the toolkit initializes operations to the bitwise AND of the DropSite's XmNdropOperations and the value of the operations member of the XmDropProcCallbackStruct at the time the DropSite's XmNdropProc returns. If the resulting set of operations is empty, the toolkit initializes operations to XmDROP_NOOP.
If the pointer is not over an active drop site when the drop begins and if the user does not select an operation (by pressing a modifier key), the toolkit initializes operations to the value of the DragContext's XmNdragOperations resource.
If the pointer is not over an active drop site when the drop begins and if the user does select an operation, the toolkit initializes operations to the bitwise AND of the corresponding operation and the value of the DragContext's XmNdragOperations resource. If the resulting set of operations is empty, the toolkit initializes operations to XmDROP_NOOP.
dropSiteStatus
Indicates whether or not a drop site is valid.

XmDROP_SUCCESS
The drop was successful.
XmDROP_FAILURE

Action Routines

The XmDragContext action routines are

CancelDrag():

If the value of String is Left, Right, Up, or Down, this action moves the dragged object in the corresponding location. Any other values of String are ignored.
DragMotion():
Drags the selected data as the pointer is moved.
FinishDrag():
Finishes the drag operation and starts the drop operation.
HelpDrag():
Initiates a conditional drop that enables the receiver to provide help information to the user. The user can cancel or continue the drop operation in response to this information.
