NAME
       DMXChangeDesktopAttributes - change global bounding box

SYNOPSIS
       #include <X11/extensions/dmxext.h>

       int DMXChangeDesktopAttributes(Display *dpy,
				      unsigned int mask,
				      DMXDesktopAttributes *attr);

DESCRIPTION
       DMXChangeDesktopAttributes()  resizes  the bounding box of the whole screen when using the
       Xinerama extension.  Otherwise, it has no effect on the screen layout.  An attribute  mask
       is placed in mask and the attributes to change are placed in attr.

       The values that are used to compute mask are as follows:

       DMXDesktopWidth
       DMXDesktopHeight
       DMXDesktopShiftX
       DMXDesktopShiftY

       The DMXDesktopAttributes structure is:

       typedef struct {
	   unsigned int width;
	   unsigned int height;
	   int		shiftX;
	   int		shiftY;
       } DMXDesktopAttributes;

       width   and   height  specify  the new width and height for the bounding box.  shiftX  and
       shiftY specify where the Xinerama origin will be placed with respect to the origin of  the
       new  bounding box.  This allows the left and upper edges of the bounding box to be changed
       without changing the visual position of the windows on the desktop.  If width  or   height
       is  not	specified,  the current values will be used.  If shiftX  or  shiftY is not speci-
       fied, 0 will be used.

       All coordinates are in the global DMX coordinate system.  If Xinerama is  not  active,  an
       error will be generated.

RETURN VALUE
       DMXChangeDesktopAttributes()  will  return 0 on success, DmxBadXinerama if Xinerama is not
       active, DmxBadValue if the size of the bounding box is too large, and DmxBadReply if there
       was a protocol error.

       DMXChangeDesktopAttributes()  can  generate  BadLength (if the request is malformed, which
       should never happen when using this library interface), and BadValue (if  any  values  are
       out of range).
