Name
       XReparentWindow - reparent windows

Syntax
       XReparentWindow(display, w, parent, x, y)
	  Display *display;
	  Window w;
	  Window parent;
	  int x, y;

Arguments
       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       parent	 Specifies the parent window.

       w	 Specifies the window.

       x
       y	 Specify the x and y coordinatesof the position in the new parent window.

Description
       If the specified window is mapped, automatically performs an request on it, removes it from its current position in the hierarchy, and
       inserts it as the child of the specified parent.  The window is placed in the stacking order on top with respect to sibling windows.

       After reparenting the specified window, causes the X server to generate a event.  The override_redirect member returned in this event is
       set to the window's corresponding attribute.  Window manager clients usually should ignore this window if this member is set to Finally, if
       the specified window was originally mapped, the X server automatically performs a request on it.

       The X server performs normal exposure processing on formerly obscured windows.  The X server might not generate events for regions from the
       initial request that are immediately obscured by the final request.  A error results if:

       o    The new parent window is not on the same screen as the old parent window.

       o    The new parent window is the specified window or an inferior of the specified window.

       o    The specified window has a background, and the new parent window is not the same depth as the specified window.

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

NAME
XReparentWindow - reparent windows SYNTAX
int XReparentWindow(Display *display, Window w, Window parent, int x, int y); ARGUMENTS
display Specifies the connection to the X server. parent Specifies the parent window. w Specifies the window. x y Specify the x and y coordinatesof the position in the new parent window. DESCRIPTION
If the specified window is mapped, XReparentWindow automatically performs an UnmapWindow request on it, removes it from its current posi- tion in the hierarchy, and inserts it as the child of the specified parent. The window is placed in the stacking order on top with respect to sibling windows. After reparenting the specified window, XReparentWindow causes the X server to generate a ReparentNotify event. The override_redirect mem- ber returned in this event is set to the window's corresponding attribute. Window manager clients usually should ignore this window if this member is set to True. Finally, if the specified window was originally mapped, the X server automatically performs a MapWindow request on it. The X server performs normal exposure processing on formerly obscured windows. The X server might not generate Expose events for regions from the initial UnmapWindow request that are immediately obscured by the final MapWindow request. A BadMatch error results if: o The new parent window is not on the same screen as the old parent window. o The new parent window is the specified window or an inferior of the specified window. o The new parent is InputOnly, and the window is not. o The specified window has a ParentRelative background, and the new parent window is not the same depth as the specified window. XReparentWindow can generate BadMatch and BadWindow errors. DIAGNOSTICS
BadWindow A value for a Window argument does not name a defined Window. SEE ALSO
