NAME [Toc] [Back]
tt_message_user - retrieve the user information associated with a
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
The tt_message_user function retrieves the user information stored in
data cells associated with the specified message object.
The user data is part of the message object (that is, the storage
buffer in the application); it is not a part of the actual message.
The application can, therefore, only retrieve user information that
the application placed in the message.
The m argument is the opaque handle for the message involved in this
operation. The key argument is the user data cell to be retrieved.
The user data cell must be unique for this message.
RETURN VALUE [Toc] [Back]
Upon successful completion, the tt_message_user function returns the
data cell, a piece of arbitrary user data that can hold a void *. The
application can use tt_ptr_error(3) to extract one of the following
Tt_status values from the returned data:
TT_OK The operation completed successfully.
The ttsession(1) process is not running and the ToolTalk
service cannot restart it.
The pointer passed does not point to an object of the
correct type for this operation.
APPLICATION USAGE [Toc] [Back]
The application should use tt_free(3) to free any data stored in the
address returned by the ToolTalk API.
The user data cell is intended to hold an address. If the address
selected is equal to one of the Tt_status enumerated values, the
result of the tt_ptr_error(3) function will not be reliable.
