Tk_MapWindow(3) Tk Library Procedures Tk_MapWindow(3)
Tk_MapWindow, Tk_UnmapWindow - map or unmap a window
Tk_Window tkwin (in) Token for window.
These procedures may be used to map and unmap windows managed by Tk.
Tk_MapWindow maps the window given by tkwin, and also creates an X win-
dow corresponding to tkwin if it doesn't already exist. See the
Tk_CreateWindow manual entry for information on deferred window cre-
ation. Tk_UnmapWindow unmaps tkwin's window from the screen.
If tkwin is a child window (i.e. Tk_CreateWindow was used to create a
child window), then event handlers interested in map and unmap events
are invoked immediately. If tkwin isn't an internal window, then the
event handlers will be invoked later, after X has seen the request and
returned an event for it.
These procedures should be used in place of the X procedures XMapWindow
and XUnmapWindow, since they update Tk's local data structure for
tkwin. Applications using Tk should not invoke XMapWindow and XUnmap-
map, unmap, window
