NAME

XSelectExtensionEvent, XGetSelectedExtensionEvents - select extension events, get the list of currently selected extension events  

SYNOPSIS

#include <X11/extensions/XInput.h>

XSelectExtensionEvent( Display *display,
                       Window w,
                       XEventClass *event_list,
                       int event_count);

XGetSelectedExtensionEvents( Display *display,
                             Window w,
                             int *this_client_event_count_return,
                             XEventClass **this_client_event_list_return,
                             int *all_clients_event_count_return,
                             XEventClass **all_clients_event_list_return);

display
       Specifies the connection to the X server.

w
       Specifies the window whose events you are interested in.

event_list
       Specifies the list of event classes that describe the
       events you are interested in.

event_count
       Specifies the count of event classes in the event list.

this_client_event_count_return
       Returns the count of event classes selected by this
       client.

this_client_event_list_return
       Returns a pointer to the list of event classes selected
       by this client.

all_clients_event_count_return
       Returns the count of event classes selected by all
       clients.

all_clients_event_list_return
       Returns a pointer to the list of event classes selected
       by all clients.
 

DESCRIPTION

The XSelectExtensionEvent request causes the X server to report
the events associated with the specified list of event classes.
Initially, X will not report any of these events. Events are
reported relative to a window. If a window is not interested in
a device event, it usually propagates to the closest ancestor
that is interested, unless the do_not_propagate mask prohibits
it.

Multiple clients can select for the same events on the same
window with the following restrictions:
  * Multiple clients can select events on the same window
    because their event masks are disjoint. When the X server
    generates an event, it reports it to all interested
    clients.
  * Only one client at a time can select a DeviceButtonPress
    event with automatic passive grabbing enabled, which is
    associated with the event class DeviceButtonPressGrab. To
    receive DeviceButtonPress events without automatic passive
    grabbing, use event class DeviceButtonPress but do not
    specify event class DeviceButtonPressGrab.

The server reports the event to all interested clients.

Information contained in the XDevice structure returned by
XOpenDevice is used by macros to obtain the event classes that
clients use in making XSelectExtensionEvent requests. Currently
defined macros include DeviceKeyPress, DeviceKeyRelease,
DeviceButtonPress, DeviceButtonRelese, DeviceMotionNotify,
DeviceFocusIn, DeviceFocusOut, ProximityIn, ProximityOut,
DeviceStateNotify, DeviceMappiingNotify, ChangeDeviceNotify,
DevicePointerMotionHint, DeviceButton1Motion,
DeviceButton2Motion, DeviceButton3Motion, DeviceButton4Motion,
DeviceButton5Motion, DeviceButtonMotion, DeviceOwnerGrabButton,
DeviceButtonPressGrab, and NoExtensionEvent.

To obtain the proper event class for a particular device, one
of the above macros is invoked using the XDevice structure for
that device. For example,
             DeviceKeyPress (*device, type, eventclass);

returns the DeviceKeyPress event type and the eventclass for
selecting DeviceKeyPress events from this device.

XSelectExtensionEvent can generate a BadWindow or BadClass
error. The XGetSelectedExtensionEvents request reports the
extension events selected by this client and all clients for
the specified window. This request returns pointers to two
XEventClass arrays. One lists the input extension events
selected by this client from the specified window. The other
lists the event classes selected by all clients from the
specified window. You should use XFree to free these two
arrays.

XGetSelectedExtensionEvents can generate a BadWindow error.
 

DIAGNOSTICS

BadWindow
       A value for a Window argument does not name a defined
       window.

BadClass
       A value for an XEventClass is invalid.
