XtQueryGeometry(3Xt)						     MIT X11R4						      XtQueryGeometry(3Xt)

Name
       XtQueryGeometry - query the preferred geometry of a child widget

Syntax
       XtGeometryResult XtQueryGeometry(w, intended, preferred_return)
	  Widget w;
	  XtWidgetGeometry *intended, *preferred_return;

Arguments
       intended  Specifies any changes the parent plans to make to the child's geometry or NULL.

       preferred_return
		 Returns the child widget's preferred geometry.

       w	 Specifies the widget.

Description
       To discover a child's preferred geometry, the child's parent sets any changes that it intends to make to the child's geometry in the corre-
       sponding fields of the intended structure, sets the corresponding bits in intended.request_mode, and calls

       clears all bits in the preferred_return->request_mode and checks the query_geometry field of the specified widget's class record.  If
       query_geometry is not NULL, calls the query_geometry procedure and passes as arguments the specified widget, intended, and preferred_return
       structures.  If the intended argument is NULL, replaces it with a pointer to an structure with request_mode=0 before calling query_geome-
       try.

NAME
XtQueryGeometry - query the preferred geometry of a child widget SYNTAX
XtGeometryResult XtQueryGeometry(Widget w, XtWidgetGeometry *intended, XtWidgetGeometry *preferred_return); ARGUMENTS
intended Specifies any changes the parent plans to make to the child's geometry or NULL. preferred_return Returns the child widget's preferred geometry. w Specifies the widget. DESCRIPTION
To discover a child's preferred geometry, the child's parent sets any changes that it intends to make to the child's geometry in the corre- sponding fields of the intended structure, sets the corresponding bits in intended.request_mode, and calls XtQueryGeometry. XtQueryGeometry clears all bits in the preferred_return->request_mode and checks the query_geometry field of the specified widget's class record. If query_geometry is not NULL, XtQueryGeometry calls the query_geometry procedure and passes as arguments the specified widget, intended, and preferred_return structures. If the intended argument is NULL, XtQueryGeometry replaces it with a pointer to an XtWidgetGe- ometry structure with request_mode=0 before calling query_geometry. SEE ALSO
