XCopyArea(3) XLIB FUNCTIONS XCopyArea(3)
XCopyArea, XCopyPlane - copy areas
int XCopyArea(Display *display, Drawable src, Drawable dest, GC gc, int src_x, int src_y, unsigned int width, unsigned height, int dest_x,
int XCopyPlane(Display *display, Drawable src, Drawable dest, GC gc, int src_x, int src_y, unsigned width, int height, int dest_x, int
dest_y, unsigned long plane);
dest_y Specify the x and y coordinates, which are relative to the origin of the destination rectangle and specify its upper-left corner.
display Specifies the connection to the X server.
gc Specifies the GC.
plane Specifies the bit plane. You must set exactly one bit to 1.
dest Specify the source and destination rectangles to be combined.
src_y Specify the x and y coordinates, which are relative to the origin of the source rectangle and specify its upper-left corner.
height Specify the width and height, which are the dimensions of both the source and destination rectangles.
The XCopyArea function combines the specified rectangle of src with the specified rectangle of dest. The drawables must have the same root
and depth, or a BadMatch error results.
If regions of the source rectangle are obscured and have not been retained in backing store or if regions outside the boundaries of the
source drawable are specified, those regions are not copied. Instead, the following occurs on all corresponding destination regions that
are either visible or are retained in backing store. If the destination is a window with a background other than None, corresponding
regions of the destination are tiled with that background (with plane-mask of all ones and GXcopy function). Regardless of tiling or
whether the destination is a window or a pixmap, if graphics-exposures is True, then GraphicsExpose events for all corresponding destina-
tion regions are generated. If graphics-exposures is True but no GraphicsExpose events are generated, a NoExpose event is generated. Note
that by default graphics-exposures is True in new GCs.
This function uses these GC components: function, plane-mask, subwindow-mode, graphics-exposures, clip-x-origin, clip-y-origin, and clip-
XCopyArea can generate BadDrawable, BadGC, and BadMatch errors.
The XCopyPlane function uses a single bit plane of the specified source rectangle combined with the specified GC to modify the specified
rectangle of dest. The drawables must have the same root but need not have the same depth. If the drawables do not have the same root, a
BadMatch error results. If plane does not have exactly one bit set to 1 and the value of plane is not less than %2 sup n%, where n is the
depth of src, a BadValue error results.
Effectively, XCopyPlane forms a pixmap of the same depth as the rectangle of dest and with a size specified by the source region. It uses
the foreground/background pixels in the GC (foreground everywhere the bit plane in src contains a bit set to 1, background everywhere the
bit plane in src contains a bit set to 0) and the equivalent of a CopyArea protocol request is performed with all the same exposure seman-
tics. This can also be thought of as using the specified region of the source bit plane as a stipple with a fill-style of FillOpaqueStip-
pled for filling a rectangular area of the destination.
This function uses these GC components: function, plane-mask, foreground, background, subwindow-mode, graphics-exposures, clip-x-origin,
clip-y-origin, and clip-mask.
XCopyPlane can generate BadDrawable, BadGC, BadMatch, and BadValue errors.
A value for a Drawable argument does not name a defined Window or Pixmap.
BadGC A value for a GContext argument does not name a defined GContext.
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 argu-
ment, the full range defined by the argument's type is accepted. Any argument defined as a set of alternatives can generate this
