XQueryTree(3)                    XLIB FUNCTIONS                    XQueryTree(3)



NAME
       XQueryTree - query window tree information

SYNTAX
       Status XQueryTree(Display *display, Window w, Window *root_return, Window
              *parent_return, Window **children_return, unsigned int
              *nchildren_return);

ARGUMENTS
       children_return
                 Returns the list of children.

       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       nchildren_return
                 Returns the number of children.

       parent_return
                 Returns the parent window.

       root_return
                 Returns the root window.

       w         Specifies the window whose list of children, root, parent, and
                 number of children you want to obtain.

DESCRIPTION
       The XQueryTree function returns the root ID, the parent window ID, a
       pointer to the list of children windows (NULL when there are no
       children), and the number of children in the list for the specified
       window.  The children are listed in current stacking order, from bottom-
       most (first) to top-most (last).  XQueryTree returns zero if it fails and
       nonzero if it succeeds.  To free a non-NULL children list when it is no
       longer needed, use XFree.

       XQueryTree can generate a BadWindow error.

BUGS
       This really should return a screen *, not a root window ID.

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