xcb_destroy_window — Destroys a window

Synopsis

#include <xcb/xproto.h>

Request function

xcb_void_cookie_t xcb_destroy_window(xcb_connection_t *conn, xcb_window_t window);

Request Arguments

conn
The XCB connection to X11.
window
The window to destroy.

Description

Destroys the specified window and all of its subwindows. A DestroyNotify event is generated for each destroyed window (a DestroyNotify event is first generated for any given window's inferiors). If the window was mapped, it will be automatically unmapped before destroying.

Calling DestroyWindow on the root window will do nothing.

Return Value

Returns an xcb_void_cookie_t. Errors (if any) have to be handled in the event loop.

If you want to handle errors directly with xcb_request_check instead, use xcb_destroy_window_checked. See xcb-requests(3) for details.

Errors

xcb_window_error_t
The specified window does not exist.
