XkbGetKeySyms — Obtain the symbols for a subset of the keys in a keyboard description

Synopsis

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

Arguments

- dpy
connection to X server
- first
keycode of first key to get
- num
number of keycodes for which syms desired
- xkb
Xkb description to be updated

Description

XkbGetKeySyms sends a request to the server to obtain the set of keysyms bound to num keys starting with the key whose keycode is first. It waits for a reply and returns the keysyms in the map.syms field of xkb. If successful, XkbGetKeySyms returns Success. The xkb parameter must be a pointer to a valid Xkb keyboard description.

If the client map in the xkb parameter has not been allocated, XkbGetKeySyms allocates and initializes it before obtaining the symbols.

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

Return Values

Success
The XkbGetKeySyms function returns Success if it gets a reply to a request to the server to obtain the set of keysyms bound to num keys starting with the key whose keycode is first.

Diagnostics

The Xkb extension has not been properly initialized
