XWarpPointer(3)                 XLIB FUNCTIONS                 XWarpPointer(3)



NAME
       XWarpPointer - move pointer

SYNTAX
       int XWarpPointer(Display *display, Window src_w, Window dest_w, int
              src_x, int src_y, unsigned int src_width, unsigned int
              src_height, int dest_x, int dest_y);

ARGUMENTS
       dest_w    Specifies the destination window or None.

       dest_x
       dest_y    Specify the x and y coordinates within the destination win-
                 dow.

       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       src_x
       src_y
       src_width
       src_height
                 Specify a rectangle in the source window.

       src_w     Specifies the source window or None.

DESCRIPTION
       If dest_w is None, XWarpPointer moves the pointer by the offsets
       (dest_x, dest_y) relative to the current position of the pointer.  If
       dest_w is a window, XWarpPointer moves the pointer to the offsets
       (dest_x, dest_y) relative to the origin of dest_w.  However, if src_w
       is a window, the move only takes place if the window src_w contains the
       pointer and if the specified rectangle of src_w contains the pointer.

       The src_x and src_y coordinates are relative to the origin of src_w.
       If src_height is zero, it is replaced with the current height of src_w
       minus src_y.  If src_width is zero, it is replaced with the current
       width of src_w minus src_x.

       There is seldom any reason for calling this function.  The pointer
       should normally be left to the user.  If you do use this function, how-
       ever, it generates events just as if the user had instantaneously moved
       the pointer from one position to another.  Note that you cannot use
       XWarpPointer to move the pointer outside the confine_to window of an
       active pointer grab.  An attempt to do so will only move the pointer as
       far as the closest edge of the confine_to window.

       XWarpPointer can generate a BadWindow error.

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