Motif 2.1 Widget Writer's Guide

Mouse Bindings

The Motif Style Guide defines a model for mouse button operations. By following this model, your widget's behavior will be consistent with other Motif widgets. A brief description of the bindings for a 3-button mouse appears in Table 7-2:

Table 10. Motif Mouse Keysyms

Physical Key Virtual Buttons Purpose
Button1 Select Selects and activates
Button2 Transfer Transfers data, including primary paste and drag operations
Button3 Menu Activates Popup Menus

For a more detailed description of mouse button bindings, see the Motif Style Guide. Note that, unlike virtuals keysyms, virtual button bindings may not be used in translation tables.
