              *changes);

       int XMoveWindow(Display *display, Window w, int x, y);

ARGUMENTS

       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       value_mask
                 Specifies which values are to be set using information in the values  structure.
                 This mask is the bitwise inclusive OR of the valid configure window values bits.

       values    Specifies the XWindowChanges structure.

       w         Specifies the window to be reconfigured, moved, or resized..

       width     Specifies the width of the window border.

       width
       height    Specify the width and height, which are the interior dimensions of the window.

       x
       y         Specify  the  x and y coordinates, which define the new location of the top-left
                 pixel of the window's border or the window itself if it has no border or  define
                 the new position of the window relative to its parent.

DESCRIPTION

       The XConfigureWindow function uses the values specified in the XWindowChanges structure to
       reconfigure a window's size, position, border, and stacking order.  Values  not  specified
       are taken from the existing geometry of the window.

       If a sibling is specified without a stack_mode or if the window is not actually a sibling,
       a BadMatch error results.  Note that the computations for BottomIf,  TopIf,  and  Opposite
       are  performed  with  respect  to  the window's final geometry (as controlled by the other
       arguments passed to XConfigureWindow),  not  its  initial  geometry.   Any  backing  store
       contents  of  the  window,  its  inferiors,  and  other  newly  visible windows are either
       discarded  or  changed  to  reflect  the  current  screen  contents  (depending   on   the
       implementation).

       XConfigureWindow can generate BadMatch, BadValue, and BadWindow errors.

       The  XMoveWindow function moves the specified window to the specified x and y coordinates,
       but it does not change the window's size, raise the window, or change the mapping state of
       the window.  Moving a mapped window may or may not lose the window's contents depending on
       if the window is obscured by nonchildren and if no backing store exists.  If the  contents
       of  the  window  are  lost,  the X server generates Expose events.  Moving a mapped window
       generates Expose events on any formerly obscured windows.

       If the override-redirect flag of the window is False and some other  client  has  selected
       SubstructureRedirectMask  on  the parent, the X server generates a ConfigureRequest event,
       and no further processing is performed.  Otherwise, the window is moved.

       XMoveWindow can generate a BadWindow error.

       The XResizeWindow function changes the inside dimensions  of  the  specified  window,  not
       including  its  borders.  This function does not change the window's upper-left coordinate
       or the origin and does not restack the window.  Changing the size of a mapped  window  may
       lose  its  contents  and  generate  Expose  events.   If  a mapped window is made smaller,
       changing its size generates Expose events on  windows  that  the  mapped  window  formerly
       obscured.

       If  the  override-redirect  flag of the window is False and some other client has selected
       SubstructureRedirectMask on the parent, the X server generates a  ConfigureRequest  event,
       and  no  further  processing  is performed.  If either width or height is zero, a BadValue
       error results.

       XResizeWindow can generate BadValue and BadWindow errors.

       The XMoveResizeWindow function changes the size  and  location  of  the  specified  window
       without  raising  it.  Moving and resizing a mapped window may generate an Expose event on
       the window.  Depending on the new size and location  parameters,  moving  and  resizing  a
       window may generate Expose events on windows that the window formerly obscured.

       If  the  override-redirect  flag of the window is False and some other client has selected
       SubstructureRedirectMask on the parent, the X server generates a  ConfigureRequest  event,
       and  no  further  processing  is  performed.   Otherwise, the window size and location are
       changed.

       XMoveResizeWindow can generate BadValue and BadWindow errors.

       The XSetWindowBorderWidth function  sets  the  specified  window's  border  width  to  the
       specified width.

       XSetWindowBorderWidth can generate a BadWindow error.

STRUCTURES

       The XWindowChanges structure contains:

       /* Configure window value mask bits */

       #define   CWX                         (1<<0)
       #define   CWY                         (1<<1)
       #define   CWWidth                     (1<<2)
       #define   CWHeight                    (1<<3)
       #define   CWBorderWidth               (1<<4)
       #define   CWSibling                   (1<<5)
       #define   CWStackMode                 (1<<6)
       /* Values */

       typedef struct {
               int x, y;
               int width, height;
               int border_width;
               Window sibling;
               int stack_mode;
       } XWindowChanges;

       The x and y members are used to set the window's x and y coordinates, which  are  relative
       to  the  parent's  origin  and indicate the position of the upper-left outer corner of the
       window.  The width and height members are used to set the inside size of the  window,  not
       including  the  border,  and  must  be  nonzero, or a BadValue error results.  Attempts to
       configure a root window have no effect.

       The border_width member is used to set the width of  the  border  in  pixels.   Note  that
       setting  just  the  border  width  leaves  the  outer-left corner of the window in a fixed
       position but moves the absolute position of the window's origin.  If you  attempt  to  set
       the border-width attribute of an InputOnly window nonzero, a BadMatch error results.

       The  sibling  member  is  used  to  set  the  sibling window for stacking operations.  The
       stack_mode member is used to set how the window is to be  restacked  and  can  be  set  to
       Above, Below, TopIf, BottomIf, or Opposite.

DIAGNOSTICS

       BadMatch  An InputOnly window is used as a Drawable.

       BadMatch  Some  argument  or pair of arguments has the correct type and range but fails to
                 match in some other way required by the request.

       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.

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