Tk_MapWindow(3) Tk Library Procedures
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 window corresponding to tkwin if it
doesn't already exist. See the Tk_CreateWindow manual entry
for information on deferred window creation. Tk_UnmapWindow
unmaps tkwin's window from the screen.
If tkwin is a child window (i.e. Tk_CreateChildWindow was
used to create it), 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
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 XUnmapWindow directly.
