xcb_get_geometry(3) XCB Requests xcb_get_geometry(3)

xcb_get_geometry - Get current window geometry

#include <xcb/xproto.h>

xcb_get_geometry_cookie_t xcb_get_geometry(xcb_connection_t * conn, xcb_drawable_t  drawable);

typedef struct xcb_get_geometry_reply_t { uint8_t response_type; uint8_t depth; uint16_t sequence; uint32_t length; xcb_window_t root; int16_t x; int16_t y; uint16_t width; uint16_t height; uint16_t border_width; uint8_t pad0[2]; } xcb_get_geometry_reply_t;

xcb_get_geometry_reply_t *xcb_get_geometry_reply(xcb_connection_t * conn, xcb_get_geometry_cookie_t  cookie, xcb_generic_error_t **e);
 

conn
The XCB connection to X11.
drawable
The drawable (Window or Pixmap) of which the geometry will be received.

response_type
The type of this reply, in this case XCB_GET_GEOMETRY. This field is also present in the xcb_generic_reply_t and can be used to tell replies apart from each other.
sequence
The sequence number of the last request processed by the X11 server.
length
The length of the reply, in words (a word is 4 bytes).
depth
The depth of the drawable (bits per pixel for the object).
root
Root window of the screen containing drawable.
x
The X coordinate of drawable. If drawable is a window, the coordinate specifies the upper-left outer corner relative to its parent's origin. If drawable is a pixmap, the X coordinate is always 0.
y
The Y coordinate of drawable. If drawable is a window, the coordinate specifies the upper-left outer corner relative to its parent's origin. If drawable is a pixmap, the Y coordinate is always 0.
width
The width of drawable.
height
The height of drawable.
border_width
The border width (in pixels).

Gets the current geometry of the specified drawable (either Window or Pixmap).

Returns an xcb_get_geometry_cookie_t. Errors have to be handled when calling the reply function xcb_get_geometry_reply.
If you want to handle errors in the event loop instead, use xcb_get_geometry_unchecked. See xcb-requests(3) for details.
