XkbAllocGeomPoints — Allocate points in an outline

Synopsis

Status XkbAllocGeomPoints (XkbOutlinePtr outline, int num_needed);

Arguments

- outline
outline for which points should be allocated
- num_needed
number of new points required

Description

Xkb provides a number of functions to allocate and free subcomponents of a keyboard geometry. Use these functions to create or modify keyboard geometries. Note that these functions merely allocate space for the new element(s), and it is up to you to fill in the values explicitly in your code. These allocation functions increase sz_* but never touch num_* (unless there is an allocation failure, in which case they reset both sz_* and num_* to zero). These functions return Success if they succeed, BadAlloc if they are not able to allocate space, or BadValue if a parameter is not as expected.

XkbAllocGeomPoints allocates space for num_needed points in the specified outline. The points are not initialized.

Diagnostics

BadAlloc
Unable to allocate storage
BadValue
An argument is out of range
