       XPropertyEvent -	PropertyNotify event structure

       The structure for PropertyNotify	events contains:

       typedef struct {
	       int type;       /* PropertyNotify */
	       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 window;
	       Atom atom;
	       Time time;
	       int state;      /* PropertyNewValue or PropertyDelete */
       } XPropertyEvent;

       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 window member is set	to the window whose  associated	 property  was
       changed.	  The  atom member is set to the property's atom and indicates
       which property was changed or desired.  The time	member is set  to  the
       server  time when the property was changed.  The	state member is	set to
       indicate	whether	the property was changed to a new value	or deleted and
       can  be PropertyNewValue	or PropertyDelete.  The	state member is	set to
       PropertyNewValue	when  a	 property  of  the  window  is	changed	 using
       XChangeProperty	or  XRotateWindowProperties  (even  when  adding zero-
       length data using XChangeProperty) and when replacing all or part of  a
       property	 with  identical  data using XChangeProperty or	XRotateWindow-
       Properties.  The	state member is	set to PropertyDelete when a  property
       of  the window is deleted using XDeleteProperty or, if the delete argu-
       ment is True, XGetWindowProperty.
