gdkWindowSetOverrideRedirect

Share:

Description

An override redirect window is not under the control of the window manager. This means it won't have a titlebar, won't be minimizable, etc. - it will be entirely under the control of the application. The window manager can't see the override redirect window at all.

Usage

1
gdkWindowSetOverrideRedirect(object, override.redirect)

Arguments

object

a toplevel GdkWindow

override.redirect

TRUE if window should be override redirect

Details

Override redirect should only be used for short-lived temporary windows, such as popup menus. GtkMenu uses an override redirect window in its implementation, for example.
