XkbGetAutoRepeatRate(3)          XKB FUNCTIONS         XkbGetAutoRepeatRate(3)



NAME
       XkbGetAutoRepeatRate  -  Gets  the current attributes of the RepeatKeys
       control for a keyboard device

SYNOPSIS
       Bool XkbGetAutoRepeatRate ( display, device_spec, timeout_rtrn,  inter-
       val_rtrn )
             Display * display ;
             unsigned int  device_spec ;
             unsigned int * timeout_rtrn ;
             unsigned int * interval_rtrn ;

ARGUMENTS
       - display
              connection to X server

       - device_spec
              desired device ID, or XkbUseCoreKbd

       - timeout_rtrn
              backfilled with initial repeat delay, ms

       - interval_rtrn
              backfilled with subsequent repeat delay, ms

DESCRIPTION
       The  core  protocol  allows only control over whether or not the entire
       keyboard  or  individual  keys  should  auto-repeat  when  held   down.
       RepeatKeys  is a boolean control that extends this capability by adding
       control over the delay until a key begins to repeat  and  the  rate  at
       which  it repeats. RepeatKeys is coupled with the core auto-repeat con-
       trol: when RepeatKeys is enabled or disabled, the core  auto-repeat  is
       enabled or disabled and vice versa.

       Auto-repeating  keys are controlled by two attributes. The first, time-
       out, is the delay after the initial press of an auto-repeating key  and
       the  first  generated  repeat event. The second, interval, is the delay
       between all subsequent generated repeat events.  As  with  all  boolean
       controls,  configuring  the  attributes  that determine how the control
       operates does not automatically enable the control as a whole.

       XkbGetAutoRepeatRate queries the server for the current values  of  the
       RepeatControls  control  attributes,  backfills timeout_rtrn and inter-
       val_rtrn with them, and returns True. If a compatible  version  of  the
       Xkb  extension  is  not  available  in  the server XkbGetAutoRepeatRate
       returns False.

RETURN VALUES
       True           The XkbGetAutoRepeatRate function returns True if a com-
                      patible version of the Xkb extension is available in the
                      server.

       False          The XkbGetAutoRepeatRate function  returns  False  if  a
                      compatible version of the Xkb extension is not available
                      in the server.
