DMXGetScreenCount(3)DMXGetScreenCount(3)NAMEDMXGetScreenCount - determine number of back-end screens
Bool DMXGetScreenCount(Display *dpy,
DESCRIPTIONDMXGetScreenCount() returns the number of back-end screens that a
Xdmx(1) server controls. Since a DMX screen usually fills all of the
available area on a back-end server, there is usually a one-to-one cor‐
respondence between DMX screens and backend servers. However, it is
also possible for a DMX screen to cover only part of the available area
on a back-end server, and for more than one DMX screens to occupy dif‐
ferent parts of the visible area on the same back-end server.
A DMX screen may be managed as a regular X screen in the Xdmx(1) server
or may be joined with other DMX screens using Xinerama.
RETURN VALUEDMXGetScreenCount() sets screen_count and returns True unless there is
a protocol error.
If Xinerama is active, only one logical screen will be available to
clients of the Xdmx(1) server. However, this call will accurately
reflect the number of composite back-end screens that the Xdmx(1)
server is using.
