NAME

XkbChangeTypesOfKey - Obtain the behaviors (the behaviors array) for a subset of the keys in a keyboard description from the server  

SYNOPSIS

Status XkbChangeTypesOfKey (Display *dpy, unsigned int first, unsigned int num, XkbDescPtr xkb);
     
 

ARGUMENTS

- dpy
connection to server
- first
keycode of first key to get
- num
number of keys for which behaviors are desired
- xkb
Xkb description to contain the result
 

DESCRIPTION

XkbGetKeyBehaviors sends a request to the server to obtain the behaviors for num keys on the keyboard starting with the key whose keycode is first. It waits for a reply and returns the behaviors in the server->behaviors field of xkb. If successful, XkbGetKeyBehaviors returns Success.

If the server map in the xkb parameter has not been allocated, XkbGetKeyBehaviors allocates and initializes it before obtaining the actions.

If the server does not have a compatible version of Xkb, or the Xkb extension has not been properly initialized, XkbGetKeyBehaviors returns BadAccess. If num is less than 1 or greater than XkbMaxKeyCount, XkbGetKeyBehaviors returns BadValue. If any allocation errors occur, XkbGetKeyBehaviors returns BadAlloc.  

DIAGNOSTICS

BadAccess
The Xkb extension has not been properly initialized
BadAlloc
Unable to allocate storage
BadValue
An argument is out of range
