XkbAllocGeomOverlays(3)          XKB FUNCTIONS         XkbAllocGeomOverlays(3)



NAME
       XkbAllocGeomOverlays - Allocate overlays in a section

SYNOPSIS
       Status XkbAllocGeomOverlays ( section, num_needed )
             XkbSectionPtr section;
             int num_needed;

ARGUMENTS
       - section
              section for which overlays should be allocated

       - num_needed
              number of new overlays required

DESCRIPTION
       Xkb  provides  a number of functions to allocate and free subcomponents
       of a keyboard geometry. Use these functions to create  or  modify  key-
       board  geometries.  Note that these functions merely allocate space for
       the new element(s), and it is up to you to fill in the  values  explic-
       itly  in  your code. These allocation functions increase sz_* but never
       touch num_* (unless there is an allocation failure, in which case  they
       reset  both  sz_* and num_* to zero). These functions return Success if
       they succeed, BadAlloc if they are not able to allocate space, or  Bad-
       Value if a parameter is not as expected.

       XkbAllocGeomOverlays allocates num_needed overlays and adds them to the
       section.  No initialization of the overlays is done.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAlloc       Unable to allocate storage

       BadValue       An argument is out of range
