XWarpPointer(3)			XLIB FUNCTIONS		       XWarpPointer(3)

NAME
       XWarpPointer - move pointer

SYNTAX
       int XWarpPointer(Display	*display, Window src_w,	Window dest_w, int
	      src_x, int src_y,	unsigned int src_width,	unsigned int
	      src_height, int dest_x, int dest_y);

ARGUMENTS
       dest_w	 Specifies the destination window or None.

       dest_x
       dest_y	 Specify the x and y coordinates within	the destination	win-
		 dow.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       src_x
       src_y
       src_width
       src_height
		 Specify a rectangle in	the source window.

       src_w	 Specifies the source window or	None.

DESCRIPTION
       If dest_w is None, XWarpPointer moves the pointer by the	offsets
       (dest_x,	dest_y)	relative to the	current	position of the	pointer.  If
       dest_w is a window, XWarpPointer	moves the pointer to the offsets
       (dest_x,	dest_y)	relative to the	origin of dest_w.  However, if src_w
       is a window, the	move only takes	place if the window src_w contains the
       pointer and if the specified rectangle of src_w contains	the pointer.

       The src_x and src_y coordinates are relative to the origin of src_w.
       If src_height is	zero, it is replaced with the current height of	src_w
       minus src_y.  If	src_width is zero, it is replaced with the current
       width of	src_w minus src_x.

       There is	seldom any reason for calling this function.  The pointer
       should normally be left to the user.  If	you do use this	function, how-
       ever, it	generates events just as if the	user had instantaneously moved
       the pointer from	one position to	another.  Note that you	cannot use
       XWarpPointer to move the	pointer	outside	the confine_to window of an
       active pointer grab.  An	attempt	to do so will only move	the pointer as
       far as the closest edge of the confine_to window.

       XWarpPointer can	generate a BadWindow error.

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