Manpage of glutShowWindow
Return to Main Contents
glutShowWindow, glutHideWindow, glutIconifyWindow - change the display status of the current window.
glutShowWindow will show the current window (though it may still
not be visible if obscured by other shown windows). glutHideWindow
will hide the current window. glutIconifyWindow will iconify a
top-level window, but GLUT prohibits iconification of a subwindow.
The effect of showing, hiding, and iconifying windows does not take
place immediately. Instead the requests are saved for execution upon
return to the GLUT event loop. Subsequent show, hide, or iconification
requests on a window replace the previously saved request for that
window. The effect of hiding, showing, or iconifying top-level windows
is subject to the window system's policy for displaying windows.
