XDrawRectangle(3X11)						     MIT X11R4						      XDrawRectangle(3X11)

Name
       XDrawRectangle, XDrawRectangles, XRectangle - draw rectangles and rectangles structure

Syntax
       XDrawRectangle(display, d, gc, x, y, width, height)
	  Display *display;
	  Drawable d;
	  GC gc;
	  int x, y;
	  unsigned int width, height;

       XDrawRectangles(display, d, gc, rectangles, nrectangles)
	  Display *display;
	  Drawable d;
	  GC gc;
	  XRectangle rectangles[];
	  int nrectangles;

Arguments
       d	 Specifies the drawable.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       gc	 Specifies the GC.

       nrectangles
		 Specifies the number of rectangles in the array.

       rectangles
		 Specifies a pointer to an array of rectangles.

       width
       height	 Specify the width and height, which specify the dimensions of the rectangle.

       x
       y	 Specify the x and y coordinates, which specify the upper-left corner of the rectangle.

Description
       The and functions draw the outlines of the specified rectangle or rectangles as if a five-point protocol request were specified for each
       rectangle:

	      [x,y] [x+width,y] [x+width,y+height] [x,y+height] [x,y]

       For the specified rectangle or rectangles, these functions do not draw a pixel more than once.  draws the rectangles in the order listed in
       the array.  If rectangles intersect, the intersecting pixels are drawn multiple times.

       Both functions use these GC components: function, plane-mask, line-width, line-style, join-style, fill-style, subwindow-mode, clip-x-ori-
       gin, clip-y-origin, and clip-mask.  They also use these GC mode-dependent components: foreground, background, tile, stipple, tile-stipple-
       x-origin, tile-stipple-y-origin, dash-offset, and dash-list.

       and can generate and errors.

Structures
       The structure contains:

       typedef struct {
	    short x, y;
	    unsigned short width, height;
       } XRectangle;

       All x and y members are signed integers.  The width and height members are 16-bit unsigned integers.  You should be careful not to generate
       coordinates and sizes out of the 16-bit ranges, because the protocol only has 16-bit fields for these values.

Diagnostics
       A value for a Drawable argument does not name a defined Window or Pixmap.

       A value for a GContext argument does not name a defined GContext.

       An	 window is used as a Drawable.

       Some argument or pair of arguments has the correct type and range but fails
		 to match in some other way required by the request.

NAME
XDrawRectangle, XDrawRectangles, XRectangle - draw rectangles and rectangles structure SYNOPSIS
XDrawRectangle(display, d, gc, x, y, width, height) Display *display; Drawable d; GC gc; int x, y; unsigned int width, height; XDrawRectangles(display, d, gc, rectangles, nrectangles) Display *display; Drawable d; GC gc; XRectangle rectangles[]; int nrectangles; ARGUMENTS
Specifies the drawable. Specifies the connection to the X server. Specifies the GC. Specifies the number of rectangles in the array. Specifies an array of rectangles. Specify the width and height, which specify the dimensions of the rectangle. Specify the x and y coor- dinates, which specify the upper-left corner of the rectangle. DESCRIPTION
The XDrawRectangle and XDrawRectangles functions draw the outlines of the specified rectangle or rectangles as if a five-point PolyLine protocol request were specified for each rectangle: [x,y] [x+width,y] [x+width,y+height] [x,y+height] [x,y] For the specified rectangle or rectangles, these functions do not draw a pixel more than once. XDrawRectangles draws the rectangles in the order listed in the array. If rectangles intersect, the intersecting pixels are drawn multiple times. Both functions use these GC components: function, plane-mask, line-width, line-style, cap-style, join-style, fill-style, subwindow-mode, clip-x-origin, clip-y-origin, and clip-mask. They also use these GC mode-dependent components: foreground, background, tile, stipple, tile- stipple-x-origin, tile-stipple-y-origin, dash-offset, and dash-list. XDrawRectangle and XDrawRectangles can generate BadDrawable, BadGC, and BadMatch errors. STRUCTURES
The XRectangle structure contains: typedef struct { short x, y; unsigned short width, height; } XRectangle; All x and y members are signed integers. The width and height members are 16-bit unsigned integers. You should be careful not to generate coordinates and sizes out of the 16-bit ranges, because the protocol only has 16-bit fields for these values. DIAGNOSTICS
A value for a Drawable argument does not name a defined Window or Pixmap. A value for a GContext argument does not name a defined GCon- text. An InputOnly window is used as a Drawable. Some argument or pair of arguments has the correct type and range but fails to match in some other way required by the request. SEE ALSO
