XUnmapWindow(display, w)
      Display *display;
      Window w;


display Specifies the connection to the X server.
w Specifies the window.


The XUnmapWindow() function unmaps the specified window and causes the X server to generate an UnmapNotify event. If the specified window is already unmapped, XUnmapWindow() has no effect. Normal exposure processing on formerly obscured windows is performed. Any child window will no longer be visible until another map call is made on the parent. In other words, the subwindows are still mapped but are not visible until the parent is mapped. Unmapping a window will generate Expose events on windows that were formerly obscured by it.

XUnmapWindow() can generate a BadWindow error.


BadWindow A value for a Window argument does not name a defined Window.
