accept_focus()accept_focus()Nameaccept_focus - Core class method for accepting or rejecting the key‐
typedef Boolean (*XtAcceptFocusProc)(Widget, Time *);
w Specifies the widget.
time Specifies the X time of the event causing the parent to offer
focus to the child.
True if the child actually took the focus; False otherwise.
The accept_focus() method is registered on the accept_focus field of
the Core class part structure and is invoked by XtCallAcceptFocus()
when a parent widget wants to offer keyboard focus to a widget. If the
widget wants the keyboard focus, it should take it with the Xlib func‐
tion XSetInputFocus() and return True. If the widget does not cur‐
rently want the focus, it should return False.
The ICCCM requires that a widget use Parent for the revert_to argument
The accept_focus() method is not chained. If a widget class does not
define an accept_focus() method, it can use XtInheritAcceptFocus to
inherit the method from its superclass. If the widget never wants the
focus, it should have an accept_focus field of NULL.
Note that this method is an invitation to take the focus, not notifica‐
tion that focus has changed, and not a command to take the focus.
A widget that needs to know when it loses the focus can specify trans‐
lations or event handlers for FocusIn and FocusOut events.
None of the Intrinsics or Xaw widget classes define an accept_focus()
method, and none of them ever call XtCallAcceptFocus().
An application that wants to direct keyboard events to a particular
widget should use XtSetKeyboardFocus().
