XSetClipOrigin(3)			  XLIB FUNCTIONS			XSetClipOrigin(3)

NAME
       XSetClipOrigin, XSetClipMask, XSetClipRectangles - GC convenience routines

SYNTAX
       int XSetClipOrigin(Display *display, GC gc, int clip_x_origin, int clip_y_origin);

       int XSetClipMask(Display *display, GC gc, Pixmap pixmap);

       int XSetClipRectangles(Display *display, GC gc, int clip_x_origin, int clip_y_origin,
	      XRectangle rectangles[], int n, int ordering);

ARGUMENTS
       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       clip_x_origin
       clip_y_origin
		 Specify the x and y coordinates of the clip-mask origin.

       gc	 Specifies the GC.

       n	 Specifies the number of rectangles.

       ordering  Specifies the ordering relations on the rectangles.  You can pass Unsorted,
		 YSorted, YXSorted, or YXBanded.

       pixmap	 Specifies the pixmap or None.

       rectangles
		 Specifies an array of rectangles that define the clip-mask.

DESCRIPTION
       The XSetClipOrigin function sets the clip origin in the specified GC.  The clip-mask ori-
       gin is interpreted relative to the origin of whatever destination drawable is specified in
       the graphics request.

       XSetClipOrigin can generate BadAlloc and BadGC errors.

       The XSetClipMask function sets the clip-mask in the specified GC to the specified pixmap.
       If the clip-mask is set to None, the pixels are are always drawn (regardless of the clip-
       origin).

       XSetClipMask can generate BadAlloc, BadGC, BadMatch, and BadValue errors.

       The XSetClipRectangles function changes the clip-mask in the specified GC to the specified
       list of rectangles and sets the clip origin.  The output is clipped to remain contained
       within the rectangles.  The clip-origin is interpreted relative to the origin of whatever
       destination drawable is specified in a graphics request.  The rectangle coordinates are
       interpreted relative to the clip-origin.  The rectangles should be nonintersecting, or the
       graphics results will be undefined.  Note that the list of rectangles can be empty, which
       effectively disables output.  This is the opposite of passing None as the clip-mask in
       XCreateGC, XChangeGC, and XSetClipMask.

       If known by the client, ordering relations on the rectangles can be specified with the
       ordering argument.  This may provide faster operation by the server.  If an incorrect
       ordering is specified, the X server may generate a BadMatch error, but it is not required
       to do so.  If no error is generated, the graphics results are undefined.  Unsorted means
       the rectangles are in arbitrary order.  YSorted means that the rectangles are nondecreas-
       ing in their Y origin.  YXSorted additionally constrains YSorted order in that all rectan-
       gles with an equal Y origin are nondecreasing in their X origin.  YXBanded additionally
       constrains YXSorted by requiring that, for every possible Y scanline, all rectangles that
       include that scanline have an identical Y origins and Y extents.

       XSetClipRectangles can generate BadAlloc, BadGC, BadMatch, and BadValue errors.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAlloc  The server failed to allocate the requested resource or server memory.

       BadGC	 A value for a GContext argument does not name a defined GContext.

       BadMatch  Some argument or pair of arguments has the correct type and range but fails to
		 match in some other way required by the request.

       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.
