SDL_SysWMEvent \- Platform-dependent window manager event\&.
The system window manager event contains a pointer to system-specific information about unknown window manager events\&. If you enable this event using \fI\fBSDL_EventState()\fP\fR, it will be generated whenever unhandled events are received from the window manager\&. This can be used, for example, to implement cut-and-paste in your application\&.
\f(CWtypedef struct {
Uint8 type; /* Always SDL_SysWM */
} SDL_SysWMEvent;\fR
If you want to obtain system-specific information about the window manager, you can fill the version member of a \fBSDL_SysWMinfo\fR structure (details can be found in \fBSDL_syswm\&.h\fP, which must be included) using the \fBSDL_VERSION()\fP macro found in \fBSDL_version\&.h\fP, and pass it to the function:
\fBint \fBSDL_GetWMInfo\fP\fR(\fBSDL_SysWMinfo *info\fR);
