View Full Version : X11 showing / hiding windows

July 20th, 2012, 08:45 AM

I'm trying to show / hide X11 windows. I can already grab each window's id (Window object), but when I do XUnmapWindow() nothing happens.
I also took a look at how it is done in Gdk, and they do the same thing, except they call XWithdrawWindow() on top-level windows. Now doing that didn't really help. What am I doing wrong?
