XtAppGetSelectionTimeout, XtAppSetSelectionTimeout - set and obtain selection timeout values


unsigned long XtAppGetSelectionTimeout(XtAppContext app_context);
void XtAppSetSelectionTimeout(XtAppContext app_context, unsigned long


Specifies the application context.

Specifies the selection timeout in milliseconds.


The XtAppGetSelectionTimeout function returns the current selection timeout value, in milliseconds. The selection timeout is the time within which the two communicating applications must respond to one another. The initial timeout value is set by the selectionTimeout application resource, or, if selectionTimeout is not specified, it defaults to five seconds.

The XtAppSetSelectionTimeout function sets the Intrinsics's selection timeout mechanism. Note that most applications should not set the selection timeout.
