12.5 Controlling Input Focus

Xlib provides functions that you can use to set and get the input focus. The input focus is a shared resource, and cooperation among clients is required for correct interaction. See the Inter-Client Communication Conventions Manual for input focus policy.

To set the input focus, use XSetInputFocus().

To obtain the current input focus, use XGetInputFocus().
