function sends a WM_CHANGE_STATE ClientMessage event with a format
of 32 and a first data element of IconicState (as described in section
4.1.4 of the Inter-Client Communication Conventions Manual) and a window
of w to the root window of the specified screen with an event mask set
to SubstructureNotifyMask| SubstructureRedirectMask. Window managers
may elect to receive this message and if the window is in its normal state,
may treat it as a request to change the window's state from normal to iconic.
If the WM_CHANGE_STATE property cannot be interned, XIconifyWindow does
not send a message and returns a zero status. It returns a nonzero status
if the client message is sent successfully; otherwise, it returns a zero

the XWindowChanges structure.
- Specifies the window.
The XWithdrawWindow function unmaps the specified window and
sends a synthetic UnmapNotify event to the root window of the specified
screen. Window managers may elect to receive this message and may treat
it as a request to change the window's state to withdrawn. When a window
is in the withdrawn state, neither its normal nor its iconic representations
is visible. It returns a nonzero status if the UnmapNotify event is successfully
sent; otherwise, it returns a zero status.
XWithdrawWindow can generate
a BadWindow error.
The XReconfigureWMWindow function issues a ConfigureWindow
request on the specified top-level window. If the stacking mode is changed
and the request fails with a BadMatch error, the error is trapped by
Xlib and a synthetic ConfigureRequestEvent containing the same configuration
parameters is sent to the root of the specified window. Window managers
may elect to receive this event and treat it as a request to reconfigure
the indicated window. It returns a nonzero status if the request or event
is successfully sent; otherwise, it returns a zero status.
can generate BadValue and BadWindow errors.
Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted by the request.
Unless a specific range is specified for an argument, the full range defined
by the argument's type is accepted. Any argument defined as a set of alternatives
can generate this error.
- A value for a Window argument does
not name a defined Window.
