Synopsis

Bool XkbSetNamedIndicator (Display *dpy, unsigned int device_spec, Atom name, Bool change_state, Bool state, Bool create_new, XkbIndicatorMapPtr map);

Arguments

- dpy

connection to the X server

- device_spec

device ID, or XkbUseCoreKbd

- name

name of the indicator to change

- change_state

whether to change the indicator state or not

- state

Description

If a compatible version of the Xkb extension is not available in the server, XkbSetNamedIndicator returns False. Otherwise, it sends a request to the X server to change the  indicator specified by name and returns True.
 If change_state is True, and the optional parameter, state, is not NULL, XkbSetNamedIndicator tells the server to change the state of the named indicator to the value  specified by state.

If an indicator with the name specified by name does not already exist, the create_new parameter tells the server whether it should create a new named indicator. If create_new is True, the server finds the first indicator that doesn't have a name and gives  it the name specified by name. If the optional parameter, map, is not NULL, XkbSetNamedIndicator tells the server to change the indicator's map to the values specified in map.

In addition, it can also generate XkbIndicatorStateNotify,  XkbIndicatorMapNotify, and XkbNamesNotify events.
