Hello list, I've been lately looking for a way to draw lines (with the gc's subwindow_mode set to IncludeInferiors) while being able to refresh them properly. This is for a small window manager I'm in development of.
So far the only way I've achieved so is by setting gc's function to GXinvert; then I just have draw the line, and draw it again to ged rid of it. The thing is that I'd like to do the same with a solid color. I've also tried leaving the gc-function's member as GXcopy, and then clearing exposed areas. I managed to do this only on the root window, as soon as I place a xterm on the screen, I seem to be unable to clear affected areas within it. So my question is if somebody can give me some hints or clues. I've also tried drawing with all the gc functions while trying to clear again with all of them (one by one, programatically), but to my surprise I didn't get the desired result. So if anyone could tell me at least what the better way would be to go on with, or perhaps about some window manager which doesn't use GXinvert when resizing windows, but a solid color so I can see how the do it, that would also be really appreciated.
