XCreatePixmap(3X11)      XLIB FUNCTIONS       XCreatePixmap(3X11)


     XCreatePixmap, XFreePixmap - create or destroy pixmaps


     Pixmap XCreatePixmap(Display *display, Drawable d, unsigned
          int width, unsigned int height, unsigned int depth);

     int XFreePixmap(Display *display, Pixmap pixmap);


     d         Specifies which screen the pixmap is created on.

     depth     Specifies the depth of the pixmap.

     display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

     pixmap    Specifies the pixmap.

     height    Specify the width and height, which define the
               dimensions of the pixmap.


     The XCreatePixmap function creates a pixmap of the width,
     height, and depth you specified and returns a pixmap ID that
     identifies it. It is valid to pass an InputOnly window to
     the drawable argument. The width and height arguments must
     be nonzero, or a BadValue error results. The depth argument
     must be one of the depths supported by the screen of the
     specified drawable, or a BadValue error results.

     The server uses the specified drawable to determine on which
     screen to create the pixmap. The pixmap can be used only on
     this screen and only with other drawables of the same depth
     (see XCopyPlane for an exception to this rule). The initial
     contents of the pixmap are undefined.

     XCreatePixmap can generate BadAlloc, BadDrawable, and Bad-
     Value errors.

     The XFreePixmap function first deletes the association
     between the pixmap ID and the pixmap. Then, the X server
     frees the pixmap storage when there are no references to it.
     The pixmap should never be referenced again.

     XFreePixmap can generate a BadPixmap error.


     BadAlloc  The server failed to allocate the requested
               resource or server memory.

               A value for a Drawable argument does not name a
               defined Window or Pixmap.

     BadPixmap A value for a Pixmap argument does not name a
               defined Pixmap.

     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 gen-
               erate this error.
