Get the opacity of a window.

Header File

Defined in SDL_video.h


int SDL_GetWindowOpacity(SDL_Window * window, float * out_opacity);

Function Parameters

SDL_Window * window the window to get the current opacity value from.
float * out_opacity the float filled in (0.0f - transparent, 1.0f - opaque).

Return Value

(int) Returns 0 on success or a negative error code on failure; call SDL_GetError() for more information.


If transparency isn't supported on this platform, opacity will be reported as 1.0f without error.

The parameter opacity is ignored if it is NULL.

This function also returns -1 if an invalid window was provided.


This function is available since SDL 2.0.5.
