XkbInitCanonicalKeyTypes — Set the definitions of the canonical key types in a  client map to their default values


Status XkbInitCanonicalKeyTypes (XkbDescPtr xkb, unsigned int which, int keypadVMod);


- xkb

keyboard description containing client map to initialize

- which

mask of types to initialize

- keypadVMod

index of NumLock virtual modifier


XkbInitCanonicalKeyTypes initializes the first XkbNumRequiredTypes key types of the keyboard specified by  the xkb parameter to their default values. The which parameter specifies what canonical key types to initialize and is a bitwise  inclusive OR of the following masks: XkbOneLevelMask, XkbTwoLevelMask,  XkbAlphabeticMask, and XkbKeypadMask. Only those canonical types specified by  the which mask are initialized.

If XkbKeypadMask is set in the which parameter, XkbInitCanonicalKeyTypes looks up the NumLock named virtual modifier to determine which virtual modifier  to use when initializing the KEYPAD key type. If the NumLock virtual modifier  does not exist, XkbInitCanonicalKeyTypes creates it.

XkbInitCanonicalKeyTypes normally returns Success. It returns BadAccess if the Xkb extension has not been  properly initialized, and BadAccess if the  xkb parameter is not valid.

Return Values


The XkbInitCanonicalKeyTypes funtion return Success if the Xkb extension has been properly initialized and  the xkb parameter is valid.



The Xkb extension has not been properly initialized
