Detailed Description

A GtkTargetEntry C++ wrapper class.

The selection mechanism provides the basis for different types of communication between processes. In particular, drag-and-drop and Clipboard work via selections. You will very seldom or never need to use most of the functions in this section directly; Clipboard provides a nicer interface to the same functionality. Some of the datatypes defined this section are used in the Clipboard and drag-and-drop API's as well.

The TargetEntry structure represents an entry in a TargetList of data types that are supported when sending or receiving data.

See also: the Selection HOWTO and example.
