Allocate geometry properties


Status XkbAllocGeomProps (XkbGeometryPtr geom, int num_needed);



geometry for which properties should be allocated


number of new properties required


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.

XkbAllocGeomProps allocates space for num_needed properties and adds them to the specified geometry geom. No initialization of the properties is done. A geometry property associates an  arbitrary string with an equally arbitrary name. Geometry properties can be used  to provide hints to programs that display images of keyboards, but they are not  interpreted by Xkb. No other geometry structures refer to geometry properties.
