XDestroyWindow(3)               XLIB FUNCTIONS               XDestroyWindow(3)



NAME
       XDestroyWindow, XDestroySubwindows - destroy windows

SYNTAX
       int XDestroyWindow(Display *display, Window w);

       int XDestroySubwindows(Display *display, Window w);

ARGUMENTS
       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       w         Specifies the window.

DESCRIPTION
       The XDestroyWindow function destroys the specified window as well as
       all of its subwindows and causes the X server to generate a DestroyNo-
       tify 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 gener-
       ated on any inferiors of the window before being generated on the win-
       dow itself.  The ordering among siblings and across subhierarchies is
       not otherwise constrained.  If the window you specified is a root win-
       dow, no windows are destroyed.  Destroying a mapped window will gener-
       ate 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
       again.

       XDestroySubwindows can generate a BadWindow error.

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