#include <xosd.h>

xosd *xosd_create (int number_lines);

 

DESCRIPTION

xosd_init creates a new xosd window that can be used to display textual or numerical data on a X11 display in a unmanaged, shaped window that appears to be transparent. It provides a similar effect to the on-screen display of many televisions and video recorders.

RETURN VALUE

On success a pointer to a new xosd object is returned, otherwise NULL is returned.

 

ENVIRONMENT

DISPLAY
The environment variable that determines which X11 display the XOSD window appears.

char *xosd_error
A string to a text string describing the error.

 

HISTORY

The xosd_create function first appeared in version 2.0 of the XOSD library, replacing the now depricated xosd_init function.
