XSetNormalHints(3X11)													     XSetNormalHints(3X11)

Name
       XSetNormalHints, XGetNormalHints - set or get normal state hints

Syntax
       XSetNormalHints(display, w, hints)
	     Display *display;
	     Window w;
	     XSizeHints *hints;

       Status XGetNormalHints(display, w, hints_return)
	     Display *display;
	     Window w;
	     XSizeHints *hints_return;

Arguments
       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       hints	 Specifies a pointer to the size hints for the window in its normal state.

       hints_return
		 Returns the size hints for the window in its normal state.

       w	 Specifies the window.

Description
       The function sets the size hints structure for the specified window.  Applications use to inform the window manager of the size or position
       desirable for that window.  In addition, an application that wants to move or resize itself should call and specify its new  desired  loca-
       tion  and  size	as  well  as  making direct Xlib calls to move or resize.  This is because window managers may ignore redirected configure
       requests, but they pay attention to property changes.

       To set size hints, an application not only must assign values to the appropriate members in the hints structure but also must set the flags
       member of the structure to indicate which information is present and where it came from.  A call to is meaningless, unless the flags member
       is set to indicate which members of the structure have been assigned values.

       can generate and errors.

       The function returns the size hints for a window in its normal state.  It returns a nonzero status if it succeeds or zero if  the  applica-
       tion specified no normal size hints for this window.

       can generate a error.

Property
       WM_NORMAL_HINTS

Diagnostics
       The server failed to allocate the requested resource or server memory.

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