21.6.10 Miscellaneous Window System Events

A few other event types represent occurrences within the window system.

(delete-frame (frame))
This kind of event indicates that the user gave the window manager a command to delete a particular window, which happens to be an Emacs frame.

The standard definition of the delete-frame event is to delete frame.

(iconify-frame (frame))
This kind of event indicates that the user iconified frame using the window manager. Its standard definition is ignore; since the frame has already been iconified, Emacs has no work to do. The purpose of this event type is so that you can keep track of such events if you want to.

(make-frame-visible (frame))
This kind of event indicates that the user deiconified frame using the window manager. Its standard definition is ignore; since the frame has already been made visible, Emacs has no work to do.

(mouse-wheel position delta)
This kind of event is generated by moving a wheel on a mouse (such as the MS Intellimouse). Its effect is typically a kind of scroll or zoom.

The element delta describes the amount and direction of the wheel rotation. Its absolute value is the number of increments by which the wheel was rotated. A negative delta indicates that the wheel was rotated backwards, towards the user, and a positive delta indicates that the wheel was rotated forward, away from the user.

The element position is a list describing the position of the event, in the same format as used in a mouse-click event.

This kind of event is generated only on some kinds of systems.

(drag-n-drop position files)
This kind of event is generated when a group of files is selected in an application outside of Emacs, and then dragged and dropped onto an Emacs frame.

The element position is a list describing the position of the event, in the same format as used in a mouse-click event, and files is the list of file names that were dragged and dropped. The usual way to handle this event is by visiting these files.

This kind of event is generated, at present, only on some kinds of systems.

If one of these events arrives in the middle of a key sequence--that is, after a prefix key--then Emacs reorders the events so that this event comes either before or after the multi-event key sequence, not within it.
