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.
