XClearArea(3)			XLIB FUNCTIONS			 XClearArea(3)

NAME
       XClearArea, XClearWindow	- clear	area or	window

SYNTAX
       int XClearArea(Display *display,	Window w, int x, int y,	unsigned
	      width, unsigned height, Bool exposures);

       int XClearWindow(Display	*display, Window w);

ARGUMENTS
       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       exposures Specifies a Boolean value that	indicates if Expose events are
		 to be generated.

       w	 Specifies the window.

       width
       height	 Specify the width and height, which are the dimensions	of the
		 rectangle.

       x
       y	 Specify the x and y coordinates, which	are relative to	the
		 origin	of the window and specify the upper-left corner	of the
		 rectangle.

DESCRIPTION
       The XClearArea function paints a	rectangular area in the	specified win-
       dow according to	the specified dimensions with the window's background
       pixel or	pixmap.	 The subwindow-mode effectively	is ClipByChildren.  If
       width is	zero, it is replaced with the current width of the window mi-
       nus x.  If height is zero, it is	replaced with the current height of
       the window minus	y.  If the window has a	defined	background tile, the
       rectangle clipped by any	children is filled with	this tile.  If the
       window has background None, the contents	of the window are not changed.
       In either case, if exposures is True, one or more Expose	events are
       generated for regions of	the rectangle that are either visible or are
       being retained in a backing store.  If you specify a window whose class
       is InputOnly, a BadMatch	error results.

       XClearArea can generate BadMatch, BadValue, and BadWindow errors.

       The XClearWindow	function clears	the entire area	in the specified win-
       dow and is equivalent to	XClearArea (display, w,	0, 0, 0, 0, False).
       If the window has a defined background tile, the	rectangle is tiled
       with a plane-mask of all	ones and GXcopy	function.  If the window has
       background None,	the contents of	the window are not changed.  If	you
       specify a window	whose class is InputOnly, a BadMatch error results.

       XClearWindow can	generate BadMatch and BadWindow	errors.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadMatch	 An InputOnly window is	used as	a Drawable.

       BadValue	 Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted
		 by the	request.  Unless a specific range is specified for an
		 argument, the full range defined by the argument's type is
		 accepted.  Any	argument defined as a set of alternatives can
		 generate this error.

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