Bool XCheckTypedEvent(display, event_type, event_return)
      Display *display;
      int event_type;
      XEvent *event_return;


display Specifies the connection to the X server.
event_type Specifies the event type to be compared.
event_return Returns the matched event's associated structure.


The XCheckTypedEvent() function searches the event queue and then any events available on the server connection for the first event that matches the specified type. If it finds a match, XCheckTypedEvent() removes that event, copies it into the specified XEvent structure, and returns True . The other events in the queue are not discarded. If the event is not available, XCheckTypedEvent() returns False , and the output buffer will have been flushed.
