xcb_map_window: Makes a window visible
xcb_map_window - Makes a window visible
- xcb_void_cookie_t xcb_map_window(xcb_connection_t
*conn, xcb_window_t window);
- The XCB connection to X11.
- The window to make visible.
DESCRIPTIONMaps the specified window. This means making the window visible (as long as its parent is visible).
This MapWindow request will be translated to a MapRequest request if a window manager is running. The window manager then decides to either map the window or not. Set the override-redirect window attribute to true if you want to bypass this mechanism.
If the window manager decides to map the window (or if no window manager is running), a MapNotify event is generated.
If the window becomes viewable and no earlier contents for it are remembered, the X server tiles the window with its background. If the window's background is undefined, the existing screen contents are not altered, and the X server generates zero or more Expose events.
RETURN VALUEReturns an xcb_void_cookie_t. Errors (if any) have to be handled in the event loop.
If you want to handle errors directly with xcb_request_check instead, use xcb_map_window_checked. See xcb-requests(3) for details.
- The specified window does not exist.
