XDestroyWindow(3)			  XLIB FUNCTIONS			XDestroyWindow(3)

NAME
       XDestroyWindow, XDestroySubwindows - destroy windows

SYNTAX
       int XDestroyWindow(Display *display, Window w);

       int XDestroySubwindows(Display *display, Window w);

ARGUMENTS
       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       w	 Specifies the window.

DESCRIPTION
       The XDestroyWindow function destroys the specified window as well as all of its subwindows
       and causes the X server to generate a DestroyNotify event for each window.  The window
       should never be referenced again.  If the window specified by the w argument is mapped, it
       is unmapped automatically.  The ordering of the DestroyNotify events is such that for any
       given window being destroyed, DestroyNotify is generated on any inferiors of the window
       before being generated on the window itself.  The ordering among siblings and across sub-
       hierarchies is not otherwise constrained.  If the window you specified is a root window,
       no windows are destroyed.  Destroying a mapped window will generate Expose events on other
       windows that were obscured by the window being destroyed.

       XDestroyWindow can generate a BadWindow error.

       The XDestroySubwindows function destroys all inferior windows of the specified window, in
       bottom-to-top stacking order.  It causes the X server to generate a DestroyNotify event
       for each window.  If any mapped subwindows were actually destroyed, XDestroySubwindows
       causes the X server to generate Expose events on the specified window.  This is much more
       efficient than deleting many windows one at a time because much of the work need be per-
       formed only once for all of the windows, rather than for each window.  The subwindows
       should never be referenced again.

       XDestroySubwindows can generate a BadWindow error.

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