NAME

       xcb_query_extension - check if extension is present

SYNOPSIS

       #include <xcb/xproto.h>

   Request function
       xcb_query_extension_cookie_t xcb_query_extension(xcb_connection_t *conn,
              uint16_t name_len, const char *name);

   Reply datastructure
       typedef struct xcb_query_extension_reply_t {
           uint8_t  response_type;
           uint8_t  pad0;
           uint16_t sequence;
           uint32_t length;
           uint8_t  present;
           uint8_t  major_opcode;
           uint8_t  first_event;
           uint8_t  first_error;
       } xcb_query_extension_reply_t;

   Reply function
       xcb_query_extension_reply_t *xcb_query_extension_reply(xcb_connection_t *conn,
              xcb_query_extension_cookie_t cookie, xcb_generic_error_t **e);

REQUEST ARGUMENTS

       conn      The XCB connection to X11.

       name_len  The length of name in bytes.

       name      The name of the extension to query, for example "RANDR". This is case sensitive!

REPLY FIELDS

       response_type
                 The type of this reply, in this case XCB_QUERY_EXTENSION. This field is also
                 present in the xcb_generic_reply_t and can be used to tell replies apart from
                 each other.

       sequence  The sequence number of the last request processed by the X11 server.

       length    The length of the reply, in words (a word is 4 bytes).

       present   Whether the extension is present on this X11 server.

       major_opcode
                 The major opcode for requests.

       first_event
                 The first event code, if any.

       first_error
                 The first error code, if any.

DESCRIPTION

       Determines if the specified extension is present on this X11 server.

       Every extension has a unique major_opcode to identify requests, the minor opcodes and
       request formats are extension-specific. If the extension provides events and errors, the
       first_event and first_error fields in the reply are set accordingly.

       There should rarely be a need to use this request directly, XCB provides the
       xcb_get_extension_data function instead.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns an xcb_query_extension_cookie_t. Errors have to be handled when calling the reply
       function xcb_query_extension_reply.

       If you want to handle errors in the event loop instead, use xcb_query_extension_unchecked.
       See xcb-requests(3) for details.

ERRORS

       This request does never generate any errors.
