I am writing a video display application. It gets frames of data from a hardware sounce and paints them into the application`s set of double buffered pixmaps. On expose events they are painted in the window. A XtAppTimer event sequences grabbing and painting new frames.
Problem is when the window gets hidden by the window manager I get no indication and can`t stop the timer (which consumes quite a bit of compute resource). Would like to not have CPU used when window doesn`t event show up on the server. How can I tell when the window is up?
Thanks in Advance!
