XcmsStoreColor(3)			  XLIB FUNCTIONS			XcmsStoreColor(3)

NAME
       XcmsStoreColor, XcmsStoreColors - set colors

SYNTAX
       Status XcmsStoreColor(Display *display, Colormap colormap, XcmsColor *color);

       Status XcmsStoreColors(Display *display, Colormap colormap, XcmsColor colors[], int ncol-
	      ors, Bool compression_flags_return[]);

ARGUMENTS
       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       color	 Specifies the color cell and the color to store.  Values specified in this Xcms-
		 Color structure remain unchanged on return.

       colors	 Specifies the color specification array of XcmsColor structures, each specifying
		 a color cell and the color to store in that cell.  Values specified in the array
		 remain unchanged upon return.

       colormap  Specifies the colormap.

       compression_flags_return
		 Returns an array of Boolean values indicating compression status.  If a non-NULL
		 pointer is supplied, each element of the array is set to True if the correspond-
		 ing color was compressed and False otherwise.	Pass NULL if the compression sta-
		 tus is not useful.

       ncolors	 Specifies the number of XcmsColor structures in the color-specification array.

DESCRIPTION
       The XcmsStoreColor function converts the color specified in the XcmsColor structure into
       RGB values.  It then uses this RGB specification in an XColor structure, whose three flags
       (DoRed, DoGreen, and DoBlue) are set, in a call to XStoreColor to change the color cell
       specified by the pixel member of the XcmsColor structure.  This pixel value must be a
       valid index for the specified colormap, and the color cell specified by the pixel value
       must be a read/write cell.  If the pixel value is not a valid index, a BadValue error
       results.  If the color cell is unallocated or is allocated read-only, a BadAccess error
       results.  If the colormap is an installed map for its screen, the changes are visible
       immediately.

       Note that XStoreColor has no return value; therefore, an XcmsSuccess return value from
       this function indicates that the conversion to RGB succeeded and the call to XStoreColor
       was made.  To obtain the actual color stored, use XcmsQueryColor.  Because of the screen's
       hardware limitations or gamut compression, the color stored in the colormap may not be
       identical to the color specified.

       XcmsStoreColor can generate BadAccess, BadColor, and BadValue errors.

       The XcmsStoreColors function converts the colors specified in the array of XcmsColor
       structures into RGB values and then uses these RGB specifications in XColor structures,
       whose three flags (DoRed, DoGreen, and DoBlue) are set, in a call to XStoreColors to
       change the color cells specified by the pixel member of the corresponding XcmsColor struc-
       ture.  Each pixel value must be a valid index for the specified colormap, and the color
       cell specified by each pixel value must be a read/write cell.  If a pixel value is not a
       valid index, a BadValue error results.  If a color cell is unallocated or is allocated
       read-only, a BadAccess error results.  If more than one pixel is in error, the one that
       gets reported is arbitrary.  If the colormap is an installed map for its screen, the
       changes are visible immediately.

       Note that XStoreColors has no return value; therefore, an XcmsSuccess return value from
       this function indicates that conversions to RGB succeeded and the call to XStoreColors was
       made.  To obtain the actual colors stored, use XcmsQueryColors.	Because of the screen's
       hardware limitations or gamut compression, the colors stored in the colormap may not be
       identical to the colors specified.

       XcmsStoreColors can generate BadAccess, BadColor, and BadValue errors.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAccess A client attempted to free a color map entry that it did not already allocate.

       BadAccess A client attempted to store into a read-only color map entry.

       BadColor  A value for a Colormap argument does not name a defined Colormap.

       BadValue  Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted by the request.
		 Unless a specific range is specified for an argument, the full range defined by
		 the argument's type is accepted.  Any argument defined as a set of alternatives
		 can generate this error.
