About x11 : With-x11-get-window-at-coordinates

Question Detail

I want to get the top most window that is at position x and y. In Winapi I do this with WindowFromPoint seen here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms633558%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

Is there any equivalent in x11? I have covered the entire screen with a window and i want to know all the windows that are at the point in z order.

Question Answer

XQueryTree gives list of window in the stacking order. You would need to query dimensions for every window in the list and stop when your point is within rectangle
