NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       xev - print contents of X events

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       xev  [-display  displayname] [-geometry geom] [-bw pixels]
       [-bs {NotUseful,WhenMapped,Always}]  [-id  windowid]  [-s]
       [-name string] [-rv]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       This  option  specifies  the  X  server  to contact.  This
       option specifies the size and/or location of  the  window.
       This  option  specifies  the  border width for the window.
       This option specifies what kind of backing store  to  give
       the  window. The default is NotUseful.  This option specifies
 that the window with the given  id  should  be  monitored,
  instead  of  creating  a  new window.  This option
       specifies that save-unders should be enabled on  the  window.
  This option specifies the name to assign to the created
 window.  This option specifies that the window should
       be in reverse video.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  xev  program  creates  a  window  and then asks the X
       server to send it events whenever anything happens to  the
       window  (such  as  being moved, resized, typed in, clicked
       in, and so forth.).  You can also attach it to an existing
       window.   It  is  useful  for seeing what causes events to
       occur and to display the information that they contain.
