XkbAddGeomSection(3)             XKB FUNCTIONS            XkbAddGeomSection(3)

       XkbAddGeomSection - Add one section to an existing keyboard geometry

       XkbSectionPtr  XkbAddGeomSection  (  geom,  name,  sz_rows, sz_doodads,
       sz_overlays )
             XkbGeometryPtr geom;
             Atom name;
             int sz_rows;
             int sz_doodads;
             int sz_overlays;

       - geom geometry to be updated

       - name name of the new section

       - sz_rows
              number of rows to reserve in the section

       - sz_doodads
              number of doodads to reserve in the section

       - sz_overlays
              number of overlays to reserve in the section

       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-

       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.

       A keyboard geometry contains an arbitrary number of  sections.   XkbAd-
       dGeomSection  adds  one  section to an existing keyboard geometry geom.
       The new section contains space for the number  of  rows,  doodads,  and
       overlays  specified  by  sz_rows, sz_doodads, and sz_overlays.  The new
       section is allocated and zeroed and given the name specified  by  name.
       If  a  section with name name already exists in the geometry, a pointer
       to the existing section is returned.  XkbAddGeomSection returns NULL if
       any  of the parameters is empty or if it was not able to allocate space
       for the section. To allocate space for an arbitrary number of  sections
       to a geometry, use XkbAllocGeomSections.

       } XkbSectionRec, *XkbSectionPtr;

       top  and  left are the origin of the section, relative to the origin of
       the keyboard, in mm/10. angle is in 1/10 degrees.
