XmDeactivateProtocol - A VendorShell function that deactivates a protocol without removing it


#include <Xm/Xm.h>
#include <Xm/Protocols.h>
void XmDeactivateProtocol (shell, property, protocol)
      Widget  shell;
      Atom    property;
      Atom    protocol;
void XmDeactivateWMProtocol (shell, protocol)
      Widget  shell;
      Atom    protocol;


XmDeactivateProtocol deactivates a protocol without removing it. It updates the handlers and the property, if the shell is realized. It is sometimes useful to allow a protocol's state information (callback lists, etc.) to persist, even though the client may choose to temporarily resign from the interaction. The main use of this capability is to gray/ungray f.send_msg entries in the Mwm system menu. This is supported by allowing a protocol to be in one of two states: active or inactive. If the protocol is active and the shell is realized, the property contains the protocol Atom. If the protocol is inactive, the Atom is not present in the property.

XmDeactivateWMProtocol is a convenience interface. It calls XmDeactivateProtocol with the property value set to the atom returned by interning WM_PROTOCOLS.

Specifies the widget with which the protocol property is associated
Specifies the protocol property
Specifies the protocol atom (or an int type cast to Atom)
