    xwininfo

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           xwininfo  [-help]  [-id  id]  [-root]  [-name  name] [-int] [-children]
           [-tree] [-stats] [-bits]  [-events]  [-size]  [-wm]  [-shape]  [-frame]
           [-all] [-english] [-metric] [-display display]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Xwininfo  is a utility for displaying information about windows.  Vari-
           ous information is displayed depending on which options  are  selected.
           If no options are chosen, -stats is assumed.
    
           The  user  has the option of selecting the target window with the mouse
           (by clicking any mouse button in the desired window) or  by  specifying
           its  window  id on the command line with the -id option.  Or instead of
           specifying the window by its id number, the -name option may be used to
           specify which window is desired by name.  There is also a special -root
           option to quickly obtain information on the screen's root window.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -help   Print out the 'Usage:' command syntax summary.
    
           -id id  This option allows the user to specify a target  window  id  on
                   the command line rather than using the mouse to select the tar-
                   get window.  This is very useful in  debugging  X  applications
                   where  the  target  window is not mapped to the screen or where
                   the use of the mouse might be impossible or interfere with  the
                   application.
    
           -name name
                   This  option  allows  the user to specify that the window named
                   name is the target window on the command line rather than using
                   the mouse to select the target window.
    
           -root   This  option  specifies that X's root window is the target win-
                   dow.  This is useful in situations where  the  root  window  is
                   completely obscured.
    
           -int    This option specifies that all X window ids should be displayed
                   as integer values.  The default is to display them as hexadeci-
                   mal values.
    
           -children
                   This  option causes the root, parent, and children windows' ids
                   and names of the selected window to be displayed.
    
           -tree   This option is like -children but displays all children  recur-
                   sively.
                   ing-planes value, backing pixel, and whether or not the  window
                   has save-under set.
    
           -events This option causes the selected window's event masks to be dis-
                   played.  Both the event mask of events wanted  by  some  client
                   and the event mask of events not to propagate are displayed.
    
           -size   This  option  causes  the  selected window's sizing hints to be
                   displayed.  Displayed information includes: for both the normal
                   size  hints and the zoom size hints, the user supplied location
                   if any; the program supplied location if any; the user supplied
                   size if any; the program supplied size if any; the minimum size
                   if any; the maximum size if any; the resize increments if  any;
                   and the minimum and maximum aspect ratios if any.
    
           -wm     This  option  causes the selected window's window manager hints
                   to be displayed.  Information displayed may include whether  or
                   not  the application accepts input, what the window's icon win-
                   dow # and name is, where the window's icon should go, and  what
                   the window's initial state should be.
    
           -shape  This  option  causes  the  selected  window's window and border
                   shape extents to be displayed.
    
           -frame  This option causes window manager frames to be considered  when
                   manually selecting windows.
    
           -metric This  option  causes  all individual height, width, and x and y
                   positions to be displayed in millimeters as well as  number  of
                   pixels,  based  on  what  the  server thinks the resolution is.
                   Geometry specifications that are in +x+y form are not  changed.
    
           -english
                   This  option  causes  all individual height, width, and x and y
                   positions to be displayed in inches (and feet, yards, and miles
                   if necessary) as well as number of pixels. -metric and -english
                   may both be enabled at the same time.
    
           -all    This option is a quick way to ask for all information possible.
    
           -display display
                   This option allows you to specify the server to connect to; see
                   X(7).

    BUGS

           Using -stats -bits shows some redundant information.
    
           The -geometry string displayed must make assumptions about the window's
           border  width  and  the behavior of the application and the window man-
           ager.  As a result, the location given is not always correct.
