NAME

       XISetClientPointer, XIGetClientPointer - set or get the ClientPointer device.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <X11/extensions/XInput2.h>

       XISetClientPointer( Display *display,
                           Window win,
                           int deviceid);

       Bool XIGetClientPointer( Display *display,
                                Window win,
                                int *device);

       display
              Specifies the connection to the X server.

       win
              Specifies a window belonging to the client. May be None.

       deviceid
              Specifies the ClientPointer device.

DESCRIPTION

           The ClientPointer is the device that is percieved to be the
           core pointer for non-XI protocol requests and replies. Each
           time a protocol message needs device-dependent data and the
           device is not explicitly given, the ClientPointer device is
           used to obtain the data. For example, a XQueryPointer request
           will return the coordinates of the ClientPointer.

           XISetClientPointer request sets the ClientPointer device for
           the client that owns the given window. If win is None, the
           requesting client's ClientPointer is set to the device
           specified with deviceid. Only master pointer devices can be set
           as ClientPointer.

           XISetClientPointer and can generate a BadDevice and a BadWindow
           error.

           The XIGetClientPointer request returns the ClientPointer's
           device ID for the client that owns the given window. If win is
           None, the requesting client's ClientPointer is returned.

           win may be a client ID instead of a window.

           XIGetClientPointer can generate a BadWindow error.

DIAGNOSTICS

           BadDevice
                  An invalid device was specified. The device does not
                  exist or is not a master pointer device.

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