Declaration [src]

gtk_clipboard_request_text (
  GtkClipboard* clipboard,
  GtkClipboardTextReceivedFunc callback,
  gpointer user_data

Description [src]

Requests the contents of the clipboard as text. When the text is later received, it will be converted to UTF-8 if necessary, and callback will be called.

The text parameter to callback will contain the resulting text if the request succeeded, or NULL if it failed. This could happen for various reasons, in particular if the clipboard was empty or if the contents of the clipboard could not be converted into text form.



Type: GtkClipboardTextReceivedFunc

A function to call when the text is received, or the retrieval fails. (It will always be called one way or the other.)


Type: gpointer

User data to pass to callback.

The argument can be NULL.
The data is owned by the caller of the method.
