Tk_CanvasTextInfo  -  additional information for managing text items in

       Tk_CanvasTextInfo *


       Tk_Canvas   canvas   (in)      A token  that  identifies  a  particular
                                      canvas widget.


       Textual canvas items are somewhat more complicated to manage than other
       items, due to things like the selection and the input  focus.   Tk_Can-
       vasGetTextInfo  may  be  invoked by a type manager to obtain additional
       information needed for items that display text.  The return value  from
       Tk_CanvasGetTextInfo is a pointer to a structure that is shared between
       Tk and all the items that display text.  The structure has the  follow-
       ing form:
              typedef struct Tk_CanvasTextInfo {
                Tk_3DBorder selBorder;
                int selBorderWidth;
                XColor *selFgColorPtr;
                Tk_Item *selItemPtr;
                int selectFirst;
                int selectLast;
                Tk_Item *anchorItemPtr;
                int selectAnchor;
                Tk_3DBorder insertBorder;
                int insertWidth;
                int insertBorderWidth;
                Tk_Item *focusItemPtr;
                int gotFocus;
                int cursorOn;
              } Tk_CanvasTextInfo;
       The  selBorder  field  identifies a Tk_3DBorder that should be used for
       drawing the background under selected text.  selBorderWidth  gives  the
       width  of the raised border around selected text, in pixels.  selFgCol-
       orPtr points to an XColor that describes the  foreground  color  to  be
       used when drawing selected text.  selItemPtr points to the item that is
       currently selected, or NULL if there is no item selected or if the can-
       vas  doesn't  have  the selection.  selectFirst and selectLast give the
       indices of the first and last selected  characters  in  selItemPtr,  as
       returned  by  the indexProc for that item.  anchorItemPtr points to the
       item that currently has the selection anchor;  this is not  necessarily
       the  same  as selItemPtr.  selectAnchor is an index that identifies the
       anchor  position  within  anchorItemPtr.    insertBorder   contains   a
       Tk_3DBorder  to  use  when  drawing  the insertion cursor;  insertWidth
       gives the total width of the insertion cursor in pixels, and insertBor-
       derWidth  gives  the  width  of the raised  border around the insertion
       cursor.  focusItemPtr identifies the item that currently has the  input
       focus,  or  NULL if there is no such item.  gotFocus is 1 if the canvas
       widget has the input focus and 0  otherwise.   cursorOn  is  1  if  the
       insertion cursor should be drawn in focusItemPtr and 0 if it should not
       be drawn;  this field is toggled on and off by Tk to  make  the  cursor

       The structure returned by Tk_CanvasGetTextInfo is shared between Tk and
       the type managers;  typically the type manager  calls  Tk_CanvasGetTex-
       tInfo  once  when  an item is created and then saves the pointer in the
       item's record.  Tk will update information  in  the  Tk_CanvasTextInfo;
       for  example,  a  configure  widget  command might change the selBorder
       field, or a select widget command might change the  selectFirst  field,
       or Tk might change cursorOn in order to make the insertion cursor flash
       on and off during successive redisplays.

       Type managers should treat all of the fields of  the  Tk_CanvasTextInfo
       structure as read-only, except for selItemPtr, selectFirst, selectLast,
       and selectAnchor.  Type managers may  change  selectFirst,  selectLast,
       and  selectAnchor  to  adjust  for insertions and deletions in the item
       (but only if the item is the current owner of the selection or  anchor,
       as  determined by selItemPtr or anchorItemPtr).  If all of the selected
       text in the item is deleted, the item should set selItemPtr to NULL  to
       indicate that there is no longer a selection.
