MirOS Manual: XDestroySubwindows(3), XDestroyWindow(3)

XDestroyWindow(3X11)     XLIB FUNCTIONS      XDestroyWindow(3X11)


     XDestroyWindow, XDestroySubwindows - destroy windows


     int XDestroyWindow(Display *display, Window w);

     int XDestroySubwindows(Display *display, Window w);


     display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

     w         Specifies the window.


     The XDestroyWindow function destroys the specified window as
     well as all of its subwindows and causes the X server to
     generate a DestroyNotify event for each window. The window
     should never be referenced again. If the window specified by
     the w argument is mapped, it is unmapped automatically. The
     ordering of the DestroyNotify events is such that for any
     given window being destroyed, DestroyNotify is generated on
     any inferiors of the window before being generated on the
     window itself. The ordering among siblings and across
     subhierarchies is not otherwise constrained. If the window
     you specified is a root window, no windows are destroyed.
     Destroying a mapped window will generate Expose events on
     other windows that were obscured by the window being des-

     XDestroyWindow can generate a BadWindow error.

     The XDestroySubwindows function destroys all inferior win-
     dows of the specified window, in bottom-to-top stacking
     order. It causes the X server to generate a DestroyNotify
     event for each window. If any mapped subwindows were actu-
     ally destroyed, XDestroySubwindows causes the X server to
     generate Expose events on the specified window. This is much
     more efficient than deleting many windows one at a time
     because much of the work need be performed only once for all
     of the windows, rather than for each window. The subwindows
     should never be referenced again.

     XDestroySubwindows can generate a BadWindow error.


     BadWindow A value for a Window argument does not name a
               defined Window.
