xcb_ungrab_pointer - Man Page

release the pointer


#include <xcb/xproto.h>

Request function

xcb_void_cookie_t xcb_ungrab_pointer(xcb_connection_t *conn, xcb_timestamp_t time);

Request Arguments


The XCB connection to X11.


Timestamp to avoid race conditions when running X over the network.

The pointer will not be released if time is earlier than the last-pointer-grab time or later than the current X server time.


Releases the pointer and any queued events if you actively grabbed the pointer before using xcb_grab_pointer, xcb_grab_button or within a normal button press.

EnterNotify and LeaveNotify events are generated.

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_ungrab_pointer_checked. See xcb-requests(3) for details.


This request does never generate any errors.
