xcb_create_pixmap - Creates a pixmap

#include <xcb/xproto.h>

xcb_void_cookie_t xcb_create_pixmap(xcb_connection_t *conn, uint8_t depth, xcb_pixmap_t pid, xcb_drawable_t drawable, uint16_t width, uint16_t height);

The XCB connection to X11.
The ID with which you will refer to the new pixmap, created by xcb_generate_id.
Drawable to get the screen from.
The width of the new pixmap.
The height of the new pixmap.

Creates a pixmap. The pixmap can only be used on the same screen as drawable is on and only with drawables of the same depth.

Returns an xcb_void_cookie_t. Errors (if any) have to be handled in the event loop.

If you want to handle errors directly with xcb_request_check instead, use xcb_create_pixmap_checked. See xcb-requests(3) for details.

The X server could not allocate the requested resources (no memory?).
The specified drawable (Window or Pixmap) does not exist.
TODO: reasons?
