Specifies a pointer to the Display structure that was returned in a previous call to XOpenDisplay or XtDisplay.
Specifies the window ID of a widget that relates the application window to the clipboard. The widget's window ID can be obtained through XtWindow. The same application instance should pass the same window ID to each clipboard function it calls.
Specifies the number assigned to this data item, which was returned by a previous call to XmClipboardStartCopy.
