NAME
Tk_MoveToplevelWindow - Adjust the position of a top-level window SYNOPSIS
#include <tk.h> Tk_MoveToplevelWindow(tkwin, x, y) ARGUMENTS
Tk_Window tkwin (in) Token for top-level window to move. int x (in) New x-coordinate for the top-left pixel of tkwin's border, or the top-left pixel of the decorative border supplied for tkwin by the window manager, if there is one. int y (in) New y-coordinate for the top-left pixel of tkwin's border, or the top-left pixel of the decorative border supplied for tkwin by the window manager, if there is one. _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
In general, a window should never set its own position; this should be done only by the geometry manger that is responsible for the win- dow. For top-level windows the window manager is effectively the geometry manager; Tk provides interface code between the application and the window manager to convey the application's desires to the geometry manager. The desired size for a top-level window is conveyed using the usual Tk_GeometryRequest mechanism. The procedure Tk_MoveToplevelWindow may be used by an application to request a particular position for a top-level window; this procedure is similar in function to the wm geometry Tcl command except that negative offsets cannot be speci- fied. It is invoked by widgets such as menus that want to appear at a particular place on the screen. When Tk_MoveToplevelWindow is called it does not immediately pass on the new desired location to the window manager; it defers this action until all other outstanding work has been completed, using the Tk_DoWhenIdle mechanism.

NAME
Tk_GeometryRequest, Tk_SetMinimumRequestSize, Tk_SetInternalBorder, Tk_SetInternalBorderEx - specify desired geometry or internal border for a window SYNOPSIS
#include <tk.h> Tk_GeometryRequest(tkwin, reqWidth, reqHeight) Tk_SetMinimumRequestSize(tkwin, minWidth, minHeight) Tk_SetInternalBorder(tkwin, width) Tk_SetInternalBorderEx(tkwin, left, right, top, bottom) ARGUMENTS
Tk_Window tkwin (in) Window for which geometry is being requested. int reqWidth (in) Desired width for tkwin, in pixel units. int reqHeight (in) Desired height for tkwin, in pixel units. int minWidth (in) Desired minimum requested width for tkwin, in pixel units. int minHeight (in) Desired minimum requested height for tkwin, in pixel units. int width (in) Space to leave for internal border for tkwin, in pixel units. int left (in) Space to leave for left side of internal border for tkwin, in pixel units. int right (in) Space to leave for right side of internal border for tkwin, in pixel units. int top (in) Space to leave for top side of internal border for tkwin, in pixel units. int bottom (in) Space to leave for bottom side of internal border for tkwin, in pixel units. _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
Tk_GeometryRequest is called by widget code to indicate its preference for the dimensions of a particular window. The arguments to Tk_GeometryRequest are made available to the geometry manager for the window, which then decides on the actual geometry for the window. Although geometry managers generally try to satisfy requests made to Tk_GeometryRequest, there is no guarantee that this will always be possible. Widget code should not assume that a geometry request will be satisfied until it receives a ConfigureNotify event indicating that the geometry change has occurred. Widget code should never call procedures like Tk_ResizeWindow directly. Instead, it should invoke Tk_GeometryRequest and leave the final geometry decisions to the geometry manager. If tkwin is a top-level window, then the geometry information will be passed to the window manager using the standard ICCCM protocol. Tk_SetInternalBorder is called by widget code to indicate that the widget has an internal border. This means that the widget draws a deco- rative border inside the window instead of using the standard X borders, which are external to the window's area. For example, internal borders are used to draw 3-D effects. Width specifies the width of the border in pixels. Geometry managers will use this information to avoid placing any children of tkwin overlapping the outermost width pixels of tkwin's area. Tk_SetInternalBorderEx works like Tk_SetInternalBorder but lets you specify different widths for different sides of the window. Tk_SetMinimumRequestSize is called by widget code to indicate that a geometry manager should request at least this size for the widget. This allows a widget to have some control over its size when a propagating geometry manager is used inside it. The information specified in calls to Tk_GeometryRequest, Tk_SetMinimumRequestSize, Tk_SetInternalBorder and Tk_SetInternalBorderEx can be retrieved using the macros Tk_ReqWidth, Tk_ReqHeight, Tk_MinReqWidth, Tk_MinReqHeight, Tk_MinReqWidth, Tk_InternalBorderLeft, Tk_Internal- BorderRight, Tk_InternalBorderTop and Tk_InternalBorderBottom. See the Tk_WindowId manual entry for details. KEYWORDS
