XkbAddGeomKeyAlias(3)            XKB FUNCTIONS           XkbAddGeomKeyAlias(3)



NAME
       XkbAddGeomKeyAlias - Add one key alias to an existing keyboard geometry
       description

SYNOPSIS
       XkbKeyAliasPtr XkbAddGeomKeyAlias ( geom, alias, real )
             XkbGeometryPtr geom;
             char * alias;
             char * real;

ARGUMENTS
       - geom geometry to be updated

       - alias
              alias to be added

       - real real name to be bound to the new alias

DESCRIPTION
       Xkb provides functions to add a single new  element  to  the  top-level
       keyboard  geometry. In each case the num_ * fields of the corresponding
       structure is incremented by 1.  These  functions  do  not  change  sz_*
       unless there is no more room in the array. Some of these functions fill
       in the values of the element's structure from the arguments. For  other
       functions,  you must explicitly write code to fill the structure's ele-
       ments.

       The top-level geometry description includes a list of geometry  proper-
       ties.   A  geometry  property  associates  an  arbitrary string with an
       equally arbitrary name. Programs that display images of  keyboards  can
       use  geometry properties as hints, but they are not interpreted by Xkb.
       No other geometry structures refer to geometry properties.

       XkbAddGeomKeyAlias adds one key alias with the value alias to the geom-
       etry  geom,  and  associates  it  with the key whose real name is real.
       XkbAddGeomKeyAlias returns NULL if any of the parameters is empty or if
       it  was not able to allocate space for the alias. To allocate space for
       an arbitrary number of aliases, use  the  XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases  func-
       tion.

STRUCTURES
           typedef struct {
               char            real[XkbKeyNameLength];   /* this key name must be in the keys array */
               char            alias[XkbKeyNameLength];  /* symbolic key name as alias for the key */
           } XkbKeyAliasRec,*XkbKeyAliasPtr;
