Any of the return location arguments to this function may be
if you aren't interested in getting the value of that field.
The X and Y coordinates returned are relative to the parent window
window, which for toplevels usually means relative to the
window decorations (titlebar, etc.) rather than relative to the
root window (screen-size background window).
On the X11 platform, the geometry is obtained from the X server,
so reflects the latest position of
window; this may be out-of-sync
with the position of
window delivered in the most-recently-processed
gdkWindowGetPosition in contrast gets the
position from the most recent configure event.
PLEASE NOTE: If
window is not a toplevel, it is much better
because it avoids the roundtrip to the X server and because
gdkDrawableGetSize supports the full 32-bit coordinate space,
gdkWindowGetGeometry is restricted to the 16-bit
coordinates of X11.
A list containing the following elements:
return location for X coordinate of window (relative to its parent)
return location for Y coordinate of window (relative to its parent)
return location for width of window
return location for height of window
return location for bit depth of window
