When Tk creates a new window it assigns it the default
visual characteristics (visual, depth, and colormap) for its
screen. Tk_SetWindowVisual may be called to change them.
Tk_SetWindowVisual must be called before the window has
actually been created in X (e.g. before Tk_MapWindow or
Tk_MakeWindowExist has been invoked for the window). The
safest thing is to call Tk_SetWindowVisual immediately after
calling Tk_CreateWindow. If tkwin has already been created
before Tk_SetWindowVisual is called then it returns 0 and
does not make any changes; otherwise it returns 1 to sig-
nify that the operation completed successfully.
Note: Tk_SetWindowVisual should not be called if you just
want to change a window's colormap without changing its
visual or depth; call Tk_SetWindowColormap instead.
