XkbAllocGeomProps(3)             XKB FUNCTIONS            XkbAllocGeomProps(3)



NAME
       XkbAllocGeomProps - Allocate geometry properties

SYNOPSIS
       Status XkbAllocGeomProps ( geom, num_needed )
             XkbGeometryPtr geom;
             int num_needed;

ARGUMENTS
       - geom _summary_

       - num_needed
              _summary_

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.

       XkbAllocGeomProps  allocates  space  for num_needed properties and adds
       them to the specified geometry geom.  No initialization of the  proper-
       ties  is  done. A geometry property associates an arbitrary string with
       an equally arbitrary name. Geometry properties can be used  to  provide
       hints  to  programs  that display images of keyboards, but they are not
       interpreted by Xkb. No other  geometry  structures  refer  to  geometry
       properties.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAlloc       Unable to allocate storage

       BadValue       An argument is out of range
