NAME

       XCreatePixmap, XFreePixmap - create or destroy pixmaps

SYNTAX

       Pixmap XCreatePixmap(Display *display, Drawable d, unsigned int width, unsigned int
              height, unsigned int depth);

       int XFreePixmap(Display *display, Pixmap pixmap);

ARGUMENTS

       d         Specifies which screen the pixmap is created on.

       depth     Specifies the depth of the pixmap.

       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       pixmap    Specifies the pixmap.

       width
       height    Specify the width and height, which define the dimensions of the pixmap.

DESCRIPTION

       The XCreatePixmap function creates a pixmap of the width, height, and depth you specified
       and returns a pixmap ID that identifies it.  It is valid to pass an InputOnly window to
       the drawable argument.  The width and height arguments must be nonzero, or a BadValue
       error results.  The depth argument must be one of the depths supported by the screen of
       the specified drawable, or a BadValue error results.

       The server uses the specified drawable to determine on which screen to create the pixmap.
       The pixmap can be used only on this screen and only with other drawables of the same depth
       (see XCopyPlane for an exception to this rule).  The initial contents of the pixmap are
       undefined.

       XCreatePixmap can generate BadAlloc, BadDrawable, and BadValue errors.

       The XFreePixmap function first deletes the association between the pixmap ID and the
       pixmap.  Then, the X server frees the pixmap storage when there are no references to it.
       The pixmap should never be referenced again.

       XFreePixmap can generate a BadPixmap error.

DIAGNOSTICS

       BadAlloc  The server failed to allocate the requested resource or server memory.

       BadDrawable
                 A value for a Drawable argument does not name a defined Window or Pixmap.

       BadPixmap A value for a Pixmap argument does not name a defined Pixmap.

       BadValue  Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted by the request.
                 Unless a specific range is specified for an argument, the full range defined by
                 the argument's type is accepted.  Any argument defined as a set of alternatives
                 can generate this error.
