How can I tell whether or not some other random window is blocking part of mine?  This is needed so I can redraw my window when it, or part of it, is again visible.  You know what I am trying to say....

This depends upon the operating system and window server you are programming to.
For instance, in my preferred development environments (NeXTstep, OpenStep, Mac OS X)
you would register a delegate of the Window that implements the windowDidExpose: and
windowDidResize: methods.

Uh, in MS Windows, after you've created your window and painted it, you'll get a WM_PAINT message whenever someone has stepped on you thereby requiring you to re-paint all or some portion of the window.
