13.4.14 Edit/select operations for the active pane

A new interface allows you to invoke edit and selection operations on the active pane (the pane with input focus) within an interface. For example capi:active-pane-copy finds the active pane and tells it to do a copy operation, which is implemented by the generic function capi:pane-interface-copy-object . You can supply methods for your own pane and interface classes.

Copy, cut, paste, select, deselect and undo operations and associated predicates can be invoked in the same way.
