XtNextEvent, XtPending, XtPeekEvent, XtProcessEvent, XtMainLoop - query and process events and input


void XtNextEvent(XEvent *event_return);
Boolean XtPeekEvent(XEvent *event_return);
Boolean XtPending(void);
void XtProcessEvent(XtInputMask mask);
void XtMainLoop(void);


Specifies a pointer to the event structure that is to be dispatched to the appropriate event handler.

Returns the event information to the specified event structure.

Specifies what types of events to process. The mask is the bitwise inclusive OR of any combination of XtIMXEvent, XtIMTimer, XtIMAlternateInput, and XtIMSignal. As a convenience, the X Toolkit defines the symbolic name XtIMAll to be the bitwise inclusive OR of all event types.

XtPeekEvent has been replaced by XtAppPeekEvent.

XtPending has been replaced by XtAppPending.

XtProcessEvent has been replaced by XtAppProcessEvent.
