XWarpPointer(3) 			  XLIB FUNCTIONS			  XWarpPointer(3)

NAME
       XWarpPointer - move pointer

SYNTAX
       int XWarpPointer(Display *display, Window src_w, Window dest_w, int src_x, int src_y,
	      unsigned int src_width, unsigned int src_height, int dest_x, int dest_y);

ARGUMENTS
       dest_w	 Specifies the destination window or None.

       dest_x
       dest_y	 Specify the x and y coordinates within the destination window.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       src_x
       src_y
       src_width
       src_height
		 Specify a rectangle in the source window.

       src_w	 Specifies the source window or None.

DESCRIPTION
       If dest_w is None, XWarpPointer moves the pointer by the offsets (dest_x, dest_y) relative
       to the current position of the pointer.	If dest_w is a window, XWarpPointer moves the
       pointer to the offsets (dest_x, dest_y) relative to the origin of dest_w.  However, if
       src_w is a window, the move only takes place if the window src_w contains the pointer and
       if the specified rectangle of src_w contains the pointer.

       The src_x and src_y coordinates are relative to the origin of src_w.  If src_height is
       zero, it is replaced with the current height of src_w minus src_y.  If src_width is zero,
       it is replaced with the current width of src_w minus src_x.

       There is seldom any reason for calling this function.  The pointer should normally be left
       to the user.  If you do use this function, however, it generates events just as if the
       user had instantaneously moved the pointer from one position to another.  Note that you
       cannot use XWarpPointer to move the pointer outside the confine_to window of an active
       pointer grab.  An attempt to do so will only move the pointer as far as the closest edge
       of the confine_to window.

       XWarpPointer can generate a BadWindow error.

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