XQueryBestSize(3)		XLIB FUNCTIONS		     XQueryBestSize(3)

NAME
       XQueryBestSize, XQueryBestTile, XQueryBestStipple - determine efficient
       sizes

SYNTAX
       Status	XQueryBestSize(Display	 *display,   int    class,    Drawable
	      which_screen,  unsigned int width, unsigned int height, unsigned
	      int *width_return, unsigned int *height_return);

       Status XQueryBestTile(Display *display, Drawable	which_screen, unsigned
	      int  width, unsigned int height, unsigned	int *width_return, un-
	      signed int *height_return);

       Status XQueryBestStipple(Display	*display, Drawable  which_screen,  un-
	      signed  int  width, unsigned int height, unsigned	int *width_re-
	      turn, unsigned int *height_return);

ARGUMENTS
       class	 Specifies the class that you are interested in.  You can pass
		 TileShape, CursorShape, or StippleShape.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       width
       height	 Specify the width and height.

       which_screen
		 Specifies any drawable	on the screen.

       width_return
       height_return
		 Return	 the  width and	height of the object best supported by
		 the display hardware.

DESCRIPTION
       The XQueryBestSize function returns the best or	closest	 size  to  the
       specified  size.	 For CursorShape, this is the largest size that	can be
       fully displayed on the screen specified	by  which_screen.   For	 Tile-
       Shape,  this  is	the size that can be tiled fastest.  For StippleShape,
       this is the size	that can be stippled fastest.	For  CursorShape,  the
       drawable	indicates the desired screen.  For TileShape and StippleShape,
       the drawable indicates the screen and possibly  the  window  class  and
       depth.	An  InputOnly  window cannot be	used as	the drawable for Tile-
       Shape or	StippleShape, or a BadMatch error results.

       XQueryBestSize can generate BadDrawable,	BadMatch, and BadValue errors.

       The XQueryBestTile function returns the best or closest size, that  is,
       the  size  that	can  be	 tiled	fastest	 on  the  screen  specified by
       which_screen.  The drawable indicates the screen	and possibly the  win-
       dow class and depth.  If	an InputOnly window is used as the drawable, a
       BadMatch	error results.

       XQueryBestTile can generate BadDrawable and BadMatch errors.

       The XQueryBestStipple function returns the best or closest  size,  that
       is,  the	 size  that can	be stippled fastest on the screen specified by
       which_screen.  The drawable indicates the screen	and possibly the  win-
       dow class and depth.  If	an InputOnly window is used as the drawable, a
       BadMatch	error results.

       XQueryBestStipple can generate BadDrawable and BadMatch errors.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadMatch	 An InputOnly window is	used as	a Drawable.

       BadDrawable
		 A value for a Drawable	argument does not name a defined  Win-
		 dow or	Pixmap.

       BadMatch	 The values do not exist for an	InputOnly window.

       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.
