XSetCloseDownMode(3) XLIB FUNCTIONS XSetCloseDownMode(3)
XSetCloseDownMode, XKillClient - control clients
int XSetCloseDownMode(Display *display, int close_mode);
int XKillClient(Display *display, XID resource);
Specifies the client close-down mode. You can pass DestroyAll, RetainPermanent,
display Specifies the connection to the X server.
resource Specifies any resource associated with the client that you want to destroy or
The XSetCloseDownMode defines what will happen to the client's resources at connection
close. A connection starts in DestroyAll mode. For information on what happens to the
client's resources when the close_mode argument is RetainPermanent or RetainTemporary, see
XSetCloseDownMode can generate a BadValue error.
The XKillClient function forces a close down of the client that created the resource if a
valid resource is specified. If the client has already terminated in either RetainPerma-
nent or RetainTemporary mode, all of the client's resources are destroyed. If AllTempo-
rary is specified, the resources of all clients that have terminated in RetainTemporary
are destroyed (see section 2.5). This permits implementation of window manager facilities
that aid debugging. A client can set its close-down mode to RetainTemporary. If the
client then crashes, its windows would not be destroyed. The programmer can then inspect
the application's window tree and use the window manager to destroy the zombie windows.
XKillClient can generate a BadValue error.
BadValue Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted by the request.
Unless a specific range is specified for an argument, the full range defined by
the argument's type is accepted. Any argument defined as a set of alternatives
can generate this error.
