XkbAddGeomProperty(3)            XKB FUNCTIONS           XkbAddGeomProperty(3)



NAME
       XkbAddGeomProperty  - Add one property to an existing keyboard geometry
       description

SYNOPSIS
       XkbPropertyPtr XkbAddGeomProperty ( geom, name, value )
             XkbGeometryPtr geom;
             char * name;
             char * value;

ARGUMENTS
       - geom geometry to be updated

       - name name of the new property

       - value
              value for the new property

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.

       XkbAddGeomProperty adds one property with the specified name and  value
       to  the keyboard geometry specified by geom. XkbAddGeomProperty returns
       NULL if any of the parameters is empty or if it was not able  to  allo-
       cate  space for the property. To allocate space for an arbitrary number
       of properties, use the XkbAllocGeomProps function.

STRUCTURES
           typedef struct _XkbProperty {
               char *         name;       /* property name */
               char *         value;      /* property value */
           } XkbPropertyRec,*XkbPropertyPtr;
