Tk_CoordsToWindow(3) Tk Library Procedures Tk_CoordsToWindow(3)
Tk_CoordsToWindow - Find window containing a point
Tk_CoordsToWindow(rootX, rootY, tkwin)
int rootX (in) X-coordinate (in root window
int rootY (in) Y-coordinate (in root window
Tk_Window tkwin (in) Token for window that identifies
Tk_CoordsToWindow locates the window that contains a given point. The
point is specified in root coordinates with rootX and rootY (if a
virtual-root window manager is in use then rootX and rootY are in the
coordinate system of the virtual root window). The return value from
the procedure is a token for the window that contains the given point.
If the point is not in any window, or if the containing window is not
in the same application as tkwin, then NULL is returned.
The containing window is decided using the same rules that determine
which window contains the mouse cursor: if a parent and a child both
contain the point then the child gets preference, and if two siblings
both contain the point then the highest one in the stacking order (i.e.
the one that's visible on the screen) gets preference.
