       XCreateWindowEvent - CreateNotify event structure

       The structure for CreateNotify events contains:

       typedef struct {
	       int type;       /* CreateNotify */
	       unsigned	long serial;   /* # of last request processed by server	*/
	       Bool send_event;	       /* true if this came from a SendEvent request */
	       Display *display;       /* Display the event was	read from */
	       Window parent;  /* parent of the	window */
	       Window window;  /* window id of window created */
	       int x, y;       /* window location */
	       int width, height;      /* size of window */
	       int border_width;       /* border width */
	       Bool override_redirect; /* creation should be overridden	*/
       } XCreateWindowEvent;

       When you	receive	this event, the	structure members are set as follows.

       The  type  member  is set to the	event type constant name that uniquely
       identifies it.  For example, when the X server reports a	GraphicsExpose
       event  to a client application, it sends	an XGraphicsExposeEvent	struc-
       ture with the type member set to	GraphicsExpose.	 The display member is
       set  to a pointer to the	display	the event was read on.	The send_event
       member is set to	True if	the event came from a SendEvent	 protocol  re-
       quest.  The serial member is set	from the serial	number reported	in the
       protocol	but expanded from the 16-bit least-significant bits to a  full
       32-bit value.  The window member	is set to the window that is most use-
       ful to toolkit dispatchers.

       The parent member is set	to the created window's	 parent.   The	window
       member  specifies  the  created window.	The x and y members are	set to
       the created window's coordinates	relative to the	parent window's	origin
       and  indicate the position of the upper-left outside corner of the cre-
       ated window.  The width and height members are set to the  inside  size
       of  the	created	 window	(not including the border) and are always non-
       zero.  The border_width member is set to	the width of the created  win-
       dow's  border,  in  pixels.  The	override_redirect member is set	to the
       override-redirect attribute of the window.  Window manager clients nor-
       mally  should  ignore  this  window  if the override_redirect member is
