This function returns a list of all the live frames, i.e., those that have not been deleted. It is analogous to
buffer-listfor buffers, and includes frames on all terminals. The list that you get is newly created, so modifying the list doesn't have any effect on the internals of Emacs.
This function returns a list of just the currently visible frames. See Visibility of Frames. Frames on text terminals always count as visible, even though only the selected one is actually displayed.
This function returns a list of Emacs' frames, in Z (stacking) order (see Raising and Lowering). The optional argument display specifies which display to poll. display should be either a frame or a display name (a string). If omitted or
nil, that stands for the selected frame's display. It returns
nilif display contains no Emacs frame.
Frames are listed from topmost (first) to bottommost (last). As a special case, if display is non-
niland specifies a live frame, it returns the child frames of that frame in Z (stacking) order.
This function is not meaningful on text terminals.
This function lets you cycle conveniently through all the frames on a specific terminal from an arbitrary starting point. It returns the frame following frame, in the list of all live frames, on frame's terminal. The argument frame must specify a live frame and defaults to the selected frame. It never returns a frame whose
no-other-frameparameter (see Frame Interaction Parameters) is non-
The second argument, minibuf, says which frames to consider:
- Exclude minibuffer-only frames.
- Consider all visible frames.
- Consider all visible or iconified frames.
- a window
- Consider only the frames using that particular window as their minibuffer.
- anything else
- Consider all frames.
