XQueryTree(3)                   XLIB FUNCTIONS                   XQueryTree(3)



NAME
       XQueryTree - query window tree information

SYNTAX
       Status XQueryTree(Display *display, Window w, Window *root_return, Win-
              dow *parent_return, Window **children_return, unsigned int
              *nchildren_return);

ARGUMENTS
       children_return
                 Returns the list of children.

       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       nchildren_return
                 Returns the number of children.

       parent_return
                 Returns the parent window.

       root_return
                 Returns the root window.


       w         Specifies the window whose list of children, root, parent,
                 and number of children you want to obtain.

DESCRIPTION
       The XQueryTree function returns the root ID, the parent window ID, a
       pointer to the list of children windows (NULL when there are no chil-
       dren), and the number of children in the list for the specified window.
       The children are listed in current stacking order, from bottom-most
       (first) to top-most (last).  XQueryTree returns zero if it fails and
       nonzero if it succeeds.  To free a non-NULL children list when it is no
       longer needed, use XFree.

BUGS
       This really should return a screen *, not a root window ID.
