Some displays allow larger cursors than other displays. The XQueryBestCursor() function provides a way to find out what size cursors are actually possible on the display. It returns the largest size that can be displayed. Applications should be prepared to use smaller cursors on displays that cannot support large ones.

XQueryBestCursor() can generate a BadDrawable error.


BadDrawable A value for a Drawable argument does not name a defined Window or Pixmap.
