George Peter Staplin April 4, 2005:Tk_CreateGenericHandler is a public C function provided by the Tk library. It's accessible through stubs as well.DOCUMENTATION:http://www.tcl.tk/man/tcl8.5/TkLib/CrtGenHdlr.htmIn Tk_MainLoop (the Tk event loop) Tcl_DoOneEvent is called. The event handler eventually calls Tk_HandleEvent. In Tk_HandleEvent a list of generic-handler function pointers are iterated and called. Each generic handler is passed an XEvent.If the generic handler returns non-zero the XEvent is considered processed fully, and Tk_HandleEvent returns.If the generic handler returns 0 then Tk will attempt to pass the XEvent to any handlers it's suited for.USED FOR:Tk_CreateGenericHandler is useful for creating window managers for systems running X.BUGS:For years the ClientMessage and GenericHandler code was broken. The ClientMessage handling would overwrite the GenericHandler data. This is thought to have been a copy and paste bug. I fixed it in the 8.5 HEAD during refactoring. It should be in 8.5a2+ as well. It is not known how many people this bug effected. ClientMessage and GenericHandler handlers should work well together now.
