XkbAddGeomProperty — Add one property to an existing keyboard geometry  description

Synopsis

XkbPropertyPtr XkbAddGeomProperty (XkbGeometryPtr geom, char *name, char *value);

Arguments

- geom

geometry to be updated

- name

name of the new property

- value

value for the new property

Description

Xkb provides functions to add a single new element to the top-level keyboard  geometry. In each case the num_ * fields of the corresponding structure is incremented by 1. These functions do  not change sz_* unless there is no more room in the array. Some of these functions fill in the  values of the element's structure from the arguments. For other functions, you  must explicitly write code to fill the structure's elements.

The top-level geometry description includes a list of geometry properties. A geometry property associates an arbitrary string with an equally arbitrary  name. Programs that display images of keyboards can use geometry properties as  hints, but they are not interpreted by Xkb. No other geometry structures refer  to geometry properties.

XkbAddGeomProperty adds one property with the specified name and value to the keyboard geometry specified by geom. XkbAddGeomProperty returns NULL if any of the parameters is empty or if it was not able to allocate  space for the property. To allocate space for an arbitrary number of properties,  use the XkbAllocGeomProps function.

Structures
