NAME
XdbeGetVisualInfo - Get dbe Visual Informations SYNOPSIS
#include <X11/extensions/Xdbe.h> XdbeScreenVisualInfo *XdbeGetVisualInfo( Display *dpy, Drawable *screen_specifiers, int *num_screens) DESCRIPTION
This function returns information about which visuals support double buffering. The argument num_screens specifies how many elements there are in the screen_specifiers list. Each drawable in screen_specifiers designates a screen for which the supported visuals are being requested. If num_screens is zero, information for all screens is requested. In this case, upon return from this function, num_screens will be set to the number of screens that were found. If an error occurs, this function returns NULL, else it returns a pointer to a list of XdbeScreenVisualInfo structures of length num_screens. The nth element in the returned list corresponds to the nth drawable in the screen_specifiers list, unless num_screens was passed in with the value zero, in which case the nth element in the returned list corre- sponds to the nth screen of the server, starting with screen zero. The XdbeScreenVisualInfo structure has the following fields: int count XdbeVisualInfo *visinfo count specifies the number of items in visinfo. visinfo specifies a list of visuals, depths, and performance hints for this screen. The XdbeVisualInfo structure has the following fields: VisualID visual int depth int perflevel visual specifies one visual ID that supports double-buffering. depth specifies the depth of the visual. perflevel is a performance hint. The only operation defined on a perflevel is comparison to a perflevel of another visual on the same screen. The visual having the higher perflevel is likely to have better double-buffering graphics performance than the visual having the lower perflevel. Nothing can be deduced from the following: the magnitude of the difference of two perflevels, a perflevel value in isolation, or comparing perflevels from different servers. ERRORS
BadDrawable One or more values passed in screen_specifiers is not a valid drawable. SEE ALSO

Name
       XGetVisualInfo, XMatchVisualInfo, XVisualIDFromVisual, XVisualInfo - obtain visual information and visual structure

Syntax
       XVisualInfo *XGetVisualInfo(display, vinfo_mask, vinfo_template, nitems_return)
	  Display *display;
	  long vinfo_mask;
	  XVisualInfo *vinfo_template;
	  int *nitems_return;

       Status XMatchVisualInfo(display, screen, depth, class, vinfo_return)
	  Display *display;
	  int screen;
	  int depth;
	  int class;
	  XVisualInfo *vinfo_return;

       VisualID XVisualIDFromVisual(visual)
	   Visual *visual;

Arguments
       class	 Specifies the class of the screen.

       depth	 Specifies the depth of the screen.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       nitems_return
		 Returns the number of matching visual structures.

       screen	 Specifies the screen.

       visual	 Specifies the visual type.

       vinfo_mask
		 Specifies the visual mask value.

       vinfo_return
		 Returns the matched visual information.

       vinfo_template
		 Specifies the visual attributes that are to be used in matching the visual structures.

Description
       The function returns a list of visual structures that match the attributes specified by vinfo_template.	If no visual structures match the
       template using the specified vinfo_mask, returns a NULL.  To free the data returned by this function, use

       The function returns the visual information for a visual that matches the specified depth and class for a screen.  Because multiple visuals
       that match the specified depth and class can exist, the exact visual chosen is undefined.  If a visual is found, returns nonzero and the
       information on the visual to vinfo_return.  Otherwise, when a visual is not found, returns zero.

       The function returns the visual ID for the specified visual type.

Structures
       The structure contains:

       /* Visual information mask bits */

       #define				     0x0
       #define				     0x1
       #define				     0x2

       #define				     0x80
       #define				     0x100
       #define				     0x1FF

       /* Values */

       typedef struct {
