NAME

       XUnmapWindow, XUnmapSubwindows - unmap windows

SYNTAX

       int XUnmapWindow(Display *display, Window w);

       int XUnmapSubwindows(Display *display, Window w);

ARGUMENTS

       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       w         Specifies the window.

DESCRIPTION

       The XUnmapWindow function unmaps the specified window and causes the X server to generate
       an UnmapNotify event.  If the specified window is already unmapped, XUnmapWindow has no
       effect.  Normal exposure processing on formerly obscured windows is performed.  Any child
       window will no longer be visible until another map call is made on the parent.  In other
       words, the subwindows are still mapped but are not visible until the parent is mapped.
       Unmapping a window will generate Expose events on windows that were formerly obscured by
       it.

       XUnmapWindow can generate a BadWindow error.

       The XUnmapSubwindows function unmaps all subwindows for the specified window in bottom-to-
       top stacking order.  It causes the X server to generate an UnmapNotify event on each
       subwindow and Expose events on formerly obscured windows.  Using this function is much
       more efficient than unmapping multiple windows one at a time because the server needs to
       perform much of the work only once, for all of the windows, rather than for each window.

       XUnmapSubwindows can generate a BadWindow error.

DIAGNOSTICS

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