Fixed bug 2500 - X11: SDL tries (and fails) to hide foreign windows
Alvin I'm interested in this bug as well. I have experienced it when trying to embed an SDL_Window into a FLTK application. To do this, I create a FLTK window (window inside a window - think video player) and then use SDL_CreateWindowFrom() on the inner most window's Xlib Window*. After which, I create a renderer. In my situation I am using the FLTK GUI toolkit. What I have experienced is that the SDL_CreateRender() will recreate the window in order to properly setup OpenGL capability. As part of this process, the window is hidden and a call is executed that waits indefinitely for an acknowledgement that the window was indeed unmapped. This is where my program hangs. Please correct me if I am wrong, but should SDL2 not make Xlib calls that effect the Xlib Window in this situation (e.g. When SDL_CreateWindowFrom() is used)? The toolkit being used typically assumes responsibility and, I presume, tracks all Xlib Windows it creates. On line src/video/SDL_video.c:1372 the comment associated with setting SDL_WINDOW_FOREIGN reads: /* Can't destroy and re-create foreign windows, hrm */ Since I do not know the reason for hiding the window in the first place, the attached patch simply does not wait for a response when X11_XWithdrawWindow() and X11_XMapRaised() are issued by X11_HideWindow() and X11_ShowWindow(), respectively. I presume that the GUI toolkit (GTK, FLTK, etc.) has or will consume the acknowledging event as it is managing the Xlib Window (or it thinks it is). I have tested the patch against hg 5c645d037de2 and I have successfully tested: * Embedding the SDL_Window inside a FLTK application. * Calling SDL_SetWindowSize() when FLTK resizes the window (e.g. dragging cursor on the edge of the window). * Filling the renderer's default target blue and drawing a red fill square at the centre (exciting, I know!) * Calling SDL_Quit() when the application terminates I do not receive any Xlib erorr messages (BadWindow, etc.) in any of those situations.
