- Specifies the connection to the X server.
- Specifies the appropriate screen number on the host server.
- Specifies which values are to be set using information in the values
structure. This mask is the bitwise inclusive OR of the valid configure
window values bits.
- Specifies the XWindowChanges structure.
- Specifies the window.
function sends a WM_CHANGE_STATE ClientMessage
event with a format of 32 and a first data element of IconicState
described in section 4.1.4 of the Inter-Client Communication Conventions
) and a window of w to the root window of the specified screen with
an event mask set to SubstructureNotifyMask
. Window managers may elect to receive this
message and if the window is in its normal state, may treat it as a request to
change the window's state from normal to iconic. If the WM_CHANGE_STATE
property cannot be interned, XIconifyWindow
does not send a message and
returns a zero status. It returns a nonzero status if the client message is
sent successfully; otherwise, it returns a zero status.
function unmaps the specified window and sends a
event to the root window of the specified screen.
Window managers may elect to receive this message and may treat it as a
request to change the window's state to withdrawn. When a window is in the
withdrawn state, neither its normal nor its iconic representations is visible.
It returns a nonzero status if the UnmapNotify
event is successfully
sent; otherwise, it returns a zero status.
can generate a BadWindow
function issues a ConfigureWindow
on the specified top-level window. If the stacking mode is changed and the
request fails with a BadMatch
error, the error is trapped by Xlib and a
containing the same configuration
parameters is sent to the root of the specified window. Window managers may
elect to receive this event and treat it as a request to reconfigure the
indicated window. It returns a nonzero status if the request or event is
successfully sent; otherwise, it returns a zero status.
can generate BadValue
- Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted by the
request. Unless a specific range is specified for an argument, the full
range defined by the argument's type is accepted. Any argument defined as
a set of alternatives can generate this error.
- A value for a Window argument does not name a defined Window.
