       XCreateWindowEvent - CreateNotify event structure

       The structure for CreateNotify events contains:

       typedef struct {
	       int type;       /* CreateNotify */
	       unsigned	long serial;   /* # of last request processed by server	*/
	       Bool send_event;	       /* true if this came from a SendEvent request */
	       Display *display;       /* Display the event was	read from */
	       Window parent;  /* parent of the	window */
	       Window window;  /* window id of window created */
	       int x, y;       /* window location */
	       int width, height;      /* size of window */
	       int border_width;       /* border width */
	       Bool override_redirect; /* creation should be overridden	*/
       } XCreateWindowEvent;

       When you	receive	this event, the	structure members are set as follows.

       The type	member is set to the event type	constant name that uniquely
       identifies it.  For example, when the X server reports a	GraphicsExpose
       event to	a client application, it sends an XGraphicsExposeEvent struc-
       ture with the type member set to	GraphicsExpose.	 The display member is
       set to a	pointer	to the display the event was read on.  The send_event
       member is set to	True if	the event came from a SendEvent	protocol re-
       quest.  The serial member is set	from the serial	number reported	in the
       protocol	but expanded from the 16-bit least-significant bits to a full
       32-bit value.  The window member	is set to the window that is most use-
       ful to toolkit dispatchers.

       The parent member is set	to the created window's	parent.	 The window
       member specifies	the created window.  The x and y members are set to
       the created window's coordinates	relative to the	parent window's	origin
       and indicate the	position of the	upper-left outside corner of the cre-
       ated window.  The width and height members are set to the inside	size
       of the created window (not including the	border)	and are	always non-
       zero.  The border_width member is set to	the width of the created win-
       dow's border, in	pixels.	 The override_redirect member is set to	the
       override-redirect attribute of the window.  Window manager clients nor-
       mally should ignore this	window if the override_redirect	member is
