Specifies the connection to the X server.
Specifies the color cell and the color to store. Values specified in this XcmsColor structure remain unchanged on return.
Specifies the color specification array of XcmsColor structures, each specifying a color cell and the color to store in that cell. Values specified in the array remain unchanged upon return.
Specifies the colormap.
Returns an array of Boolean values indicating compression status. If a non-NULL pointer is supplied, each element of the array is set to True if the corresponding color was compressed and False otherwise. Pass NULL if the compression status is not useful.
Specifies the number of XcmsColor structures in the color-specification array.
Note that XStoreColor has no return value; therefore, an XcmsSuccess return value from this function indicates that the conversion to RGB succeeded and the call to XStoreColor was made. To obtain the actual color stored, use XcmsQueryColor. Because of the screen's hardware limitations or gamut compression, the color stored in the colormap may not be identical to the color specified.
XcmsStoreColor can generate BadAccess, BadColor, and BadValue errors.
The XcmsStoreColors function converts the colors specified in the array of XcmsColor structures into RGB values and then uses these RGB specifications in XColor structures, whose three flags (DoRed, DoGreen, and DoBlue) are set, in a call to XStoreColors to change the color cells specified by the pixel member of the corresponding XcmsColor structure. Each pixel value must be a valid index for the specified colormap, and the color cell specified by each pixel value must be a read/write cell. If a pixel value is not a valid index, a BadValue error results. If a color cell is unallocated or is allocated read-only, a BadAccess error results. If more than one pixel is in error, the one that gets reported is arbitrary. If the colormap is an installed map for its screen, the changes are visible immediately.
