NAME

       xcb_reparent_window - Reparents a window

SYNOPSIS

       #include <xcb/xproto.h>

   Request function
       xcb_void_cookie_t xcb_reparent_window(xcb_connection_t *conn, xcb_window_t window,
              xcb_window_t parent, int16_t x, int16_t y);

REQUEST ARGUMENTS

       conn      The XCB connection to X11.

       window    The window to reparent.

       parent    The new parent of the window.

       x         The X position of the window within its new parent.

       y         The Y position of the window within its new parent.

DESCRIPTION

       Makes the specified window a child of the specified parent window. If the window is
       mapped, it will automatically be unmapped before reparenting and re-mapped after
       reparenting. The window is placed in the stacking order on top with respect to sibling
       windows.

       After reparenting, a ReparentNotify event is generated.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns 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_reparent_window_checked. See xcb-requests(3) for details.

ERRORS

       xcb_match_error_t
                 The new parent window is not on the same screen as the old parent window.

                 The new parent window is the specified window or an inferior of the specified
                 window.

                 The new parent is InputOnly and the window is not.

                 The specified window has a ParentRelative background and the new parent window
                 is not the same depth as the specified window.

       xcb_window_error_t
                 The specified window does not exist.
