    Command:

    xev

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           xev  [-display displayname] [-geometry geom] [-bw pixels] [-bs {NotUse-
           ful,WhenMapped,Always}] [-id  windowid]  [-root]  [-s]  [-name  string]
           [-rv]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Xev creates a window and then asks the X server to send it events when-
           ever anything happens to the window (such as it being  moved,  resized,
           typed  in,  clicked  in,  etc.).  You can also attach it to an existing
           window.  It is useful for seeing what causes events  to  occur  and  to
           display  the  information that they contain; it is essentially a debug-
           ging and development tool, and should not be needed in normal usage.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -display display
                   This option specifies the X server to contact.
    
           -geometry geom
                   This option specifies the size and/or location of  the  window,
                   if a window is to be created.
    
           -bw pixels
                   This option specifies the border width for the window.
    
           -bs {NotUseful,WhenMapped,Always}
                   This  option  specifies  what kind of backing store to give the
                   window.  The default is NotUseful. Backing store refers to  the
                   the  pixels  saved  off-screen  when the X server maintains the
                   contents of a window; NotUseful means that the xev process will
                   redraw its contents itself, as necessary.
    
           -id windowid
                   This  option specifies that the window with the given id should
                   be monitored, instead of creating a new window.
    
           -root   This option specifies that the root window should be monitored,
                   instead of creating a new window.
    
           -s      This option specifies that save-unders should be enabled on the
                   window. Save unders are similar  to  backing  store,  but  they
                   refer  rather  to the saving of pixels off-screen when the cur-
                   rent window obscures other windows. Save unders are only  advi-
                   sory,  and  are  normally set for popup dialogs and other tran-
                   sient windows.
    
           -name string
                   This option specifies the name to assign to the created window.
    
           -rv     This  option  specifies  that  the  window should be in reverse
                   video.
