10.13.3 SelectionClear Events

The X server reports SelectionClear events to the client losing ownership of a selection. The X server generates this event type when another client asserts ownership of the selection by calling XSetSelectionOwner().

The structure for this event type contains:

typedef struct {
	int type;		/* SelectionClear */
	unsigned long serial;	/* # of last request processed by server */
	Bool send_event;	/* true if this came from a SendEvent request */
	Display *display;	/* Display the event was read from */
	Window window;
	Atom selection;
	Time time;
} XSelectionClearEvent;

The selection member is set to the selection atom. The time member is set to the last change time recorded for the selection. The window member is the window that was specified by the current owner (the owner losing the selection) in its XSetSelectionOwner() call.
