Tk_Grab(3)		     Tk Library Procedures		    Tk_Grab(3)


       Tk_Grab, Tk_Ungrab - manipulate grab state in an application

       #include <tk.h>

       Tk_Grab(interp, tkwin, grabGlobal)


       Tcl_Interp   *interp	       (in)	 Interpreter  to use for error

       Tk_Window    tkwin	       (in)	 Window on  whose  behalf  the
						 pointer  is  to be grabbed or

       int	    grabGlobal	       (in)	 Boolean  indicating   whether
						 the  grab is global or appli‐
						 cation local

       These functions are used to set or  release  a  global  or  application
       local grab.  When a grab is set on a particular window in a Tk applica‐
       tion, mouse and keyboard events can only be received by that window and
       its  descendants.   Mouse  and  keyboard events for windows outside the
       tree rooted at tkwin will be redirected	to  tkwin.   If	 the  grab  is
       global, then all mouse and keyboard events for windows outside the tree
       rooted at tkwin (even those intended for windows in other applications)
       will  be	 redirected  to tkwin.	If the grab is application local, only
       mouse and keyboard events intended for a windows within the same appli‐
       cation (but outside the tree rooted at tkwin) will be redirected.

       Tk_Grab sets a grab on a particular window.  Tkwin specifies the window
       on whose behalf the pointer is to  be  grabbed.	 GrabGlobal  indicates
       whether	the  grab should be global or application local; if it is non-
       zero, it means the grab should be global.   Normally,  Tk_Grab  returns
       TCL_OK;	if  an	error  occurs and the grab cannot be set, TCL_ERROR is
       returned and an error message is left if interp's  result.   Once  this
       call completes successfully, no window outside the tree rooted at tkwin
       will receive pointer- or keyboard-related events until the next call to
       Tk_Ungrab.   If	a  previous grab was in effect within the application,
       then it is replaced with a new one.

       Tcl_Ungrab releases a grab on the mouse pointer and keyboard, if	 there
       is  one	set  on	 the  window given by tkwin.  Once a grab is released,
       pointer and keyboard events will start being delivered to other windows
