xcb_unmap_window — Makes a window invisible


#include <xcb/xproto.h>

Request function

xcb_void_cookie_t xcb_unmap_window(xcb_connection_t *conn, xcb_window_t window);

Request Arguments

The XCB connection to X11.
The window to make invisible.


Unmaps the specified window. This means making the window invisible (and all its child windows).

Unmapping a window leads to the UnmapNotify event being generated. Also, Expose events are generated for formerly obscured windows.

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


The specified window does not exist.
