Notes the changes in a changes structure


void XkbNoteIndicatorChanges (XkbIndicatorChangesPtr old, XkbIndicatorNotifyEvent *new, unsigned int wanted);


- old

XkbIndicatorChanges structure to be updated

- new

event from which changes are to be copied

- wanted

which changes are to be noted


Whenever an indicator changes state, the server sends XkbIndicatorStateNotify events to all  interested clients. Similarly, whenever an indicator's map changes, the server sends  XkbIndicatorMapNotify events to all interested clients.

To receive XkbIndicatorStateNotify events, use XkbSelectEvents with both the bits_to_change and values_for_bits parameters containing XkbIndicatorStateNotifyMask. To receive XkbIndicatorMapNotify events,  use XkbSelectEvents with XkbIndicatorMapNotifyMask.

To receive events for only specific indicators, use XkbSelectEventDetails. Set the event_type parameter to XkbIndicatorStateNotify or XkbIndicatorMapNotify, and set both the bits_to_change and values_for_bits detail parameters to a mask where each bit specifies one indicator, turning on those bits that  specify the indicators for which you want to receive events.

The changed parameter is a mask that is the bitwise inclusive OR of the indicators that have changed. If  the event is of type XkbIndicatorMapNotify, changed reports the maps that changed. If the event is of type XkbIndicatorStateNotify, changed reports the indicators that have changed state. state is a mask that specifies the current state of all indicators, whether they have changed or  not, for both XkbIndicatorStateNotify and IndicatorMapNotify events.

When your client application receives either a XkbIndicatorStateNotify event or  XkbIndicatorMapNotify event, you can note the changes in a changes structure by calling XkbNoteIndicatorChanges.

The wanted parameter is the bitwise inclusive OR of XkbIndicatorMapMask and  XkbIndicatorStateMask. XkbNoteIndicatorChanges copies any changes reported in new and specified in wanted into the changes record specified by old.


Both types of indicator events use the same structure:

typedef struct _XkbIndicatorNotify {
  int            type;       /* Xkb extension base event code */
  unsigned long  serial;     /* X server serial number for event */
  Bool           send_event; /* True => synthetically generated */
  Display *      display;    /* server connection where event generated */
  Time           time;       /* server time when event generated */
  int            xkb_type;   /* specifies state or map notify */
  int            device;     /* Xkb device ID, will not be XkbUseCoreKbd */
  unsigned int   changed;    /* mask of indicators with new state or map */
  unsigned int   state;      /* current state of all indicators */
} XkbIndicatorNotifyEvent;

xkb_type is either XkbIndicatorStateNotify or XkbIndicatorMapNotify, depending on whether the event is  a kbIndicatorStateNotify event or kbIndicatorMapNotify event.
