  1. With DECwindows, you can designate more than one global selection. The two most common global selections are the primary and secondary selections. A global selection can be owned by only one DECwindows application at a time.
    The GET_GLOBAL_SELECT built-in returns the data for the requested selection in the requested format. If the requested selection is not currently owned by any application, or if the owner cannot return it in the requested format, then GET_GLOBAL_SELECT returns TPU$K_UNSPECIFIED.
    If the selected information contains multiple records, the records are separated by the line-feed character (ASCII (10)).

A.4 Handling Callbacks from a Scroll Bar Widget

Example A-4 shows one of the ways an application can get values for widget resources. The procedure is based on the EVE procedure eve$scroll_dispatch. The original version is in SYS$EXAMPLES:EVE$DECWINDOWS.TPU.

The procedure eve$scroll_dispatch is the callback routine that handles callbacks from scroll bar widgets. The portion of the procedure shown here determines where to position the editing point based on how you have changed the scroll bar slider. The procedure fetches the position of the slider with the built-in GET_INFO (widget_variable, "widget_info") and positions the editing point to the line in the buffer equivalent to the slider's position in the scroll bar. For more information about the resource names used with the scroll bar widget, see the VMS DECwindows Toolkit Routines Reference Manual.

EVE uses the following constants in this procedure:

  • "increment"---The resource name for the amount that the scroll bar slider position is to be incremented or decremented when a scroll bar button is pressed.
  • "pageIncrement"---The resource name for the amount that the scroll bar slider position is to be incremented or decremented when a click occurs within the scroll bar above or below the slider.
  • "maximum"---The resource name for the maximum value of the scroll bar slider position.
  • "minimum"---The resource name for the minimum value of the scroll bar slider position.
  • "value"---The resource name for the top of the scroll bar slider position.
  • "sliderSize"---The resource name for the size of the slider.
  • 2---A constant for the callback reason code XmCR_VALUE_CHANGED. This reason code indicates that you changed the value of the scroll bar slider.
  • "closure"---An index for the array returned by GET_INFO (WIDGET, "callback_parameters", array).
  • "reason_code"---An index for the array returned by GET_INFO (WIDGET, "callback_parameters", array).
  • "widget"---An index for the array returned by GET_INFO (WIDGET, "callback_parameters", array).

Example A-4 EVE Procedure That Handles Callbacks from a Scroll Bar Widget

PROCEDURE eve$scroll_dispatch
LOCAL   status,


(1)status := GET_INFO (WIDGET, "callback_parameters", temp_array);

widget_called := temp_array {"widget;
widget_tag := temp_array {"closure"};
widget_reason := temp_array {"reason_code"};

POSITION (eve$$scroll_bar_window {widget_called});

scroll_bar_values := CREATE_ARRAY;
scroll_bar_values {"increment"} := 0;
scroll_bar_values {"pageIncrement"} := 0;
scroll_bar_values {"maximum"} := 0;
scroll_bar_values {"minimum"} := 0;
scroll_bar_values {"value"} := 0;
scroll_bar_values {"sliderSize"} := 0;

(2)status := GET_INFO (widget_called, "widget_info", scroll_bar_values);

! The deleted statements scroll the window as dictated
! by the callback reason.


CASE widget_reason


           IF (scroll_bar_values {"value"} =
               scroll_bar_values {"minimum"})
               POSITION (beginning_of (current_buffer));
(3)               POSITION (scroll_bar_values {"value"});

!      .
!      .
!      .

  1. GET_INFO (WIDGET, "callback_parameters", array) returns an array that contains the values for the current callback. The array elements are indexed by the strings "widget", "closure", and "reason_code" that reference the widget that is calling back, the widget's closure value, and the reason code for the callback.
  2. With GET_INFO (WIDGET, "widget_info", array), you can fetch information from a widget. The array parameter is indexed by the resource names associated with the specified widget. Resource names are case sensitive and the set of supported resources varies from one widget type to another. When you use GET_INFO (widget, "widget_info", array), DECTPU queries the widget for the requested information and puts the returned information in the array elements. Any previous values in the array are lost.
  3. With POSITION (integer), you can move the editing point to the record specified by the parameter integer. DECTPU interprets this parameter as a record number.

A.5 Reactivating a Select Range

Example A-5 shows one of the ways an application can use the SET (GLOBAL_SELECT) built-in. The procedure is based on the EVE procedure EVE$RESTORE_PRIMARY_SELECTION. The original version is in SYS$EXAMPLES:EVE$MOUSE.TPU.

The procedure eve$restore_primary_selection reactivates EVE's select range when you press the Ctrl/Shift/E4 key. The select range was deactivated when EVE lost the primary selection to another DECwindows application.

Example A-5 EVE Procedure That Reactivates a Select Range

PROCEDURE eve$restore_primary_selection

LOCAL   saved_position;

        eve$$restore_position (saved_position);
        eve$$restore_position (saved_position);

IF NOT eve$x_decwindows_active

saved_position := MARK (FREE_CURSOR);

IF GET_INFO (eve$$x_save_select_array, "type") = ARRAY
    CASE eve$$x_save_select_array {"type"}
            eve$select_a_range (eve$$x_save_select_array {"start"},
                                eve$$x_save_select_array {"end"});
            eve$$x_state_array {eve$$k_select_all_active} :=
            POSITION (eve$$x_save_select_array {"current"});
            POSITION (eve$$x_save_select_array {"start"});
            eve$x_select_position := select (eve$x_highlighting);
            POSITION (eve$$x_save_select_array {"end"});
            RETURN (FALSE);

    eve$$restore_position (saved_position);
    eve$$found_post_filter;             ! This is necessary if the
                                        ! cursor is outside the selection.

    eve$$x_save_select_array {"type"} := 0;
    UPDATE (current_window);

    SET (GLOBAL_SELECT, SCREEN, PRIMARY);  ! This statement
                                           ! requests ownership of
                                           ! the primary global selection.


A.6 Copying Selected Material from EVE to Another DECwindows Application

Example A-6 shows one of the ways a layered application can use the WRITE_GLOBAL_SELECT built-in. The procedure is based on the EVE procedure EVE$WRITE_GLOBAL_SELECT. The original version is in SYS$EXAMPLES:EVE$MOUSE.TPU.

The procedure implements the operation of copying selected material from DECwindows EVE to another DECwindows application.

The procedure determines what property of the primary global selection is being requested, gets the value of the appropriate property by using a GET_INFO statement or an EVE procedure, and sends the information to the requesting application.

Example A-6 EVE Procedure That Implements COPY SELECTION

PROCEDURE eve$write_global_select        ! EVE uses this procedure
                                         ! to respond to requests
                                         ! for information about
                                         ! selections.

LOCAL   saved_position,

        eve$$restore_position (saved_position);

saved_position := MARK (FREE_CURSOR);

IF NOT eve$x_decwindows_active


the_data := NONE;
temp_array := GET_INFO (SCREEN, "event", GLOBAL_SELECT);

    ! Finds out which global selection and which property
    ! of the global selection are the subject of the
    ! information request.

CASE temp_array {2}     ! Determines the property requested by the other application.

    ["STRING", "TEXT"]: ! If one of these strings is requested, the
                        ! procedure sends the text in the global
                        ! selection to the requesting application.

        CASE temp_array {1}  ! Checks which global selection was specified.

                IF eve$x_select_position <> 0
                    POSITION (GET_INFO (eve$x_select_position, "buffer"));

                    IF GET_INFO (eve$x_select_position, "type") = RANGE
                        the_data := STR (eve$x_select_position);
                        IF GET_INFO (eve$x_select_position, "type") = MARKER
                            the_data := STR (eve$select_a_range (eve$x_select_position,
                                                                 MARK (FREE_CURSOR)));
                            the_data := NONE;
                    eve$$restore_position (saved_position);
                the_data := NONE;
        the_data := NONE;       ! The procedure does not send data if
                                ! the requesting application has asked
                                ! for something other than the text,
                                ! the file name, or the line number.

WRITE_GLOBAL_SELECT (the_data);         ! This statement sends the
                                        ! requested information to
                                        ! the requesting application.
