XtMakeGeometryRequest(3Xt)			    XtMakeGeometryRequest(3Xt)

       XtMakeGeometryRequest, XtMakeResizeRequest - make geometry manager re-

       XtGeometryResult	XtMakeGeometryRequest(w, request, reply_return)
	     Widget w;
	     XtWidgetGeometry *request;
	     XtWidgetGeometry *reply_return;

       XtGeometryResult	XtMakeResizeRequest(w, width, height, width_return,
	     Widget w;
	     Dimension width, height;
	     Dimension *width_return, *height_return

		 Returns the allowed widget size or may	be NULL	if the re-
		 questing widget is not	interested in handling XtGeometryAl-

       request	 Specifies the desired widget geometry (size, position,	border
		 width,	and stacking order).

       w	 Specifies the widget that is making the request.

		 Return	the allowed widget width and height.

       Depending on the	condition, XtMakeGeometryRequest performs the follow-

       o    If the widget is unmanaged or the widget's parent is not realized,
	    it makes the changes and returns XtGeometryYes.

       o    If the parent is not a subclass of compositeWidgetClass or the
	    parent's geometry_manager is NULL, it issues an error.

       o    If the widget's being_destroyed field is True, it returns XtGeome-

       o    If the widget x, y,	width, height and border_width fields are all
	    equal to the requested values, it returns XtGeometryYes; other-
	    wise, it calls the parent's	geometry_manager procedure with	the
	    given parameters.

       o    If the parent's geometry manager returns XtGeometryYes and if
	    XtCWQueryOnly is not set in	the request_mode and if	the widget is
	    realized, XtMakeGeometryRequest calls the XConfigureWindow Xlib
	    function to	reconfigure the	widget's window	(set its size, loca-
	    tion, and stacking order as	appropriate).

       o    If the geometry manager returns XtGeometryDone, the	change has
	    been approved and actually has been	done.  In this case, XtMake-
	    GeometryRequest does no configuring	and returns XtGeometryYes.
	    XtMakeGeometryRequest never	returns	XtGeometryDone.

       Otherwise, XtMakeGeometryRequest	returns	the resulting value from the
       parent's	geometry manager.

       Children	of primitive widgets are always	unmanaged; thus, XtMake-
       GeometryRequest always returns XtGeometryYes when called	by a child of
       a primitive widget.

       The XtMakeResizeRequest function, a simple interface to XtMakeGeometry-
       Request,	creates	a XtWidgetGeometry structure and specifies that	width
       and height should change.  The geometry manager is free to modify any
       of the other window attributes (position	or stacking order) to satisfy
       the resize request.  If the return value	is XtGeometryAlmost, width_re-
       turn and	height_return contain a	compromise width and height.  If these
       are acceptable, the widget should immediately make an XtMakeResize-
       Request and request that	the compromise width and height	be applied.
       If the widget is	not interested in XtGeometryAlmost replies, it can
       pass NULL for width_return and height_return.
