Get the position of a window.

Header File

Defined in SDL_video.h, but apps should use #include <SDL3/SDL.h>


int SDL_GetWindowPosition(SDL_Window *window, int *x, int *y);

Function Parameters

window the window to query
x a pointer filled in with the x position of the window, may be NULL
y a pointer filled in with the y position of the window, may be NULL

Return Value
