XtOwnSelection function informs the Intrinsics selection mechanism that
a widget believes it owns a selection. It returns True if the widget
has successfully become the owner and False otherwise. The widget may
fail to become the owner if some other widget has asserted ownership at
a time later than this widget. Note that widgets can lose selection ownership
either because someone else asserted later ownership of the selection
or because the widget voluntarily gave up ownership of the selection. Also
note that the lose_selection procedure is not called if the widget fails
to obtain selection ownership in the first place.
the procedure that is to be called whenever someone requests the current
value of the selection.
- Specifies the procedure that is called
after the requestor has received the selection or NULL if the owner is
not interested in being called back.
- Specifies the procedure
that is to be called whenever the widget has lost selection ownership
or NULL if the owner is not interested in being called back.
an atom that describes the type of the selection (for example, XA_PRIMARY,
XA_SECONDARY, or XA_CLIPBOARD).
- Specifies the timestamp that indicates
when the selection ownership should commence or is to be relinquished.

procedure informs the Intrinsics incremental selection mechanism that
the specified widget wishes to own the selection. It returns True if the
specified widget successfully becomes the selection owner or False otherwise.
For more information about selection, target, and time, see Section 2.6
of the Inter-Client Communication Conventions Manual.
A widget that becomes
the selection owner using XtOwnSelectionIncremental may use XtDisownSelection
to relinquish selection ownership.
The XtDisownSelection function informs
the Intrinsics selection mechanism that the specified widget is to lose
ownership of the selection. If the widget does not currently own the selection
either because it lost the selection or because it never had the selection
to begin with, XtDisownSelection does nothing.
After a widget has called
XtDisownSelection, its convert procedure is not called even if a request
arrives later with a timestamp during the period that this widget owned
the selection. However, its done procedure will be called if a conversion
that started before the call to XtDisownSelection finishes after the
call to XtDisownSelection.
