       XPropertyEvent -	PropertyNotify event structure

       The structure for PropertyNotify	events contains:

       typedef struct {
	       int type;       /* PropertyNotify */
	       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 window;
	       Atom atom;
	       Time time;
	       int state;      /* PropertyNewValue or PropertyDelete */
       } XPropertyEvent;

       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 window member is set	to the window whose associated property	was
       changed.	 The atom member is set	to the property's atom and indicates
       which property was changed or desired.  The time	member is set to the
       server time when	the property was changed.  The state member is set to
       indicate	whether	the property was changed to a new value	or deleted and
       can be PropertyNewValue or PropertyDelete.  The state member is set to
       PropertyNewValue	when a property	of the window is changed using
       XChangeProperty or XRotateWindowProperties (even	when adding zero-
       length data using XChangeProperty) and when replacing all or part of a
       property	with identical data using XChangeProperty or XRotateWindow-
       Properties.  The	state member is	set to PropertyDelete when a property
       of the window is	deleted	using XDeleteProperty or, if the delete	argu-
       ment is True, XGetWindowProperty.
