29.3 Frame Geometry

The geometry of a frame depends on the toolkit that was used to build this instance of Emacs and the terminal that displays the frame. This chapter describes these dependencies and some of the functions to deal with them. Note that the frame argument of all of these functions has to specify a live frame (see Deleting Frames). If omitted or nil, it specifies the selected frame (see Input Focus).

Frame Layout  Basic layout of frames.
Frame Font  The default font of a frame and how to set it.
Frame Position  The position of a frame on its display.
Frame Size  Specifying and retrieving a frame’s size.
Implied Frame Resizing  Implied resizing of frames and how to prevent it.
