XmTranslateKey — The default keycode-to-keysym translator

Synopsis

#include <Xm/Xm.h>
void XmTranslateKey(
Display *display,
KeyCode keycode,
Modifiers modifiers,
Modifiers *modifiers_return,
KeySym *keysym_return);

Description

XmTranslateKey is the default XtKeyProc translation procedure for Motif applications. The function takes a keycode and modifiers and returns the corresponding keysym.

XmTranslateKey serves two main purposes: to enable new translators with expanded functionality to get the default Motif keycode-to-keysym translation in addition to whatever they add, and to reinstall the default translator. This function enables keysyms defined by the Motif virtual bindings to be used when an application requires its own XtKeyProc to be installed.

display

Specifies the display that the keycode is from

keycode

Specifies the keycode to translate

modifiers

Specifies the modifier keys to be applied to the keycode

modifiers_return

Specifies a mask of the modifier keys actually used to generate the keysym (an AND of modifiers and any default modifiers applied by the currently registered translator)

keysym_return

Specifies a pointer to the resulting keysym
