The QWSWindow class provides server-specific functionality in Qt/Embedded.

When you run a Qt/Embedded application, it either runs as a server or connects to an existing server. If it runs as a server, some additional functionality is provided by the QWSServer class.

This class maintains information about each window and allows operations to be performed on the windows.

You can get the window's name(), caption() and winId(), along with the client() that owns the window.

The region the window wants to draw on is returned by requested(); the region that the window is allowed to draw on is returned by allocation().

The visibility of the window can be determined using isVisible(), isPartiallyObscured() and isFullyObscured(). Visibility can be changed using raise(), lower(), show(), hide() and setActiveWindow().

See also Qt/Embedded.
