XStoreName(display, w, window_name)
      Display *display;
      Window w;
      char *window_name;


display Specifies the connection to the X server.
w Specifies the window.
window_name Specifies the window name, which should be a null-terminated string.


The XStoreName() function assigns the name passed to window_name to the specified window. A window manager can display the window name in some prominent place, such as the title bar, to allow users to identify windows easily. Some window managers may display a window's name in the window's icon, although they are encouraged to use the window's icon name if one is provided by the application. If the string is not in the Host Portable Character Encoding, the result is implementation dependent.

XStoreName() can generate BadAlloc and BadWindow errors.


BadAlloc The server failed to allocate the requested source or server memory.
BadWindow A value for a Window argument does not name a defined Window.
