XDestroyWindow(3) XLIB FUNCTIONS XDestroyWindow(3)
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 destroyed.
XDestroyWindow can generate a BadWindow error.
The XDestroySubwindows function destroys all inferior windows 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 actually 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
XDestroySubwindows can generate a BadWindow error.
BadWindow A value for a Window argument does not name a defined Window.
