NAME

       XDestroyWindow, XDestroySubwindows - destroy windows

SYNTAX

       int XDestroyWindow(Display *display, Window w);

       int XDestroySubwindows(Display *display, Window w);

ARGUMENTS

       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       w         Specifies the window.

DESCRIPTION

       The XDestroyWindow function destroys the specified window as well as
       all of its subwindows and causes the X server to generate a
       DestroyNotify event for each window.  The window should never be
       referenced again.  If the window specified by the w argument is mapped,
       it is unmapped automatically.  The ordering of the DestroyNotify events
       is such that for any given window being destroyed, DestroyNotify is
       generated on any inferiors of the window before being generated on the
       window itself.  The ordering among siblings and across subhierarchies
       is not otherwise constrained.  If the window you specified is a root
       window, no windows are destroyed.  Destroying a mapped window will
       generate Expose events on other windows that were obscured by the
       window being destroyed.

       XDestroyWindow can generate a BadWindow error.

       The XDestroySubwindows function destroys all inferior windows of the
       specified window, in bottom-to-top stacking order.  It causes the X
       server to generate a DestroyNotify event for each window.  If any
       mapped subwindows were actually destroyed, XDestroySubwindows causes
       the X server to generate Expose events on the specified window.  This
       is much more efficient than deleting many windows one at a time because
       much of the work need be performed only once for all of the windows,
       rather than for each window.  The subwindows should never be referenced
       again.

       XDestroySubwindows can generate a BadWindow error.

DIAGNOSTICS

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