XkbGetControls(3)                XKB FUNCTIONS               XkbGetControls(3)

       XkbGetControls - Finds the current state of Xkb server controls

       Status XkbGetControls ( display, which, xkb )
             Display *display;
             unsigned long which;
             XkbDescPtr xkb;

       - display
              connection to X server

       - which
              mask of controls requested

       - xkb  keyboard description for controls information

       XkbGetControls  queries  the  server for the requested control informa-
       tion, waits for a reply, and then copies the server's  values  for  the
       requested  information  into  the  ctrls structure of the xkb argument.
       Only those components specified by  the  which  parameter  are  copied.
       Valid values for which are any combination of the masks listed in Table
       1 that have "ok" in the which column.

       Table 1 shows the actual values for the individual mask  bits  used  to
       select controls for modification and to enable and disable the control.
       Note that the same mask bit is used to specify general modifications to
       the parameters used to configure the control (which), and to enable and
       disable the control (enabled_ctrls). The anomalies in Table 1 (no  "ok"
       in  column)  are for controls that have no configurable attributes; and
       for controls that are not boolean  controls  and  therefore  cannot  be
       enabled or disabled.

       If xkb-&gt;ctrls is NULL,  XkbGetControls  allocates  and  initializes  it
       before  obtaining  the values specified by which.  If xkb-&gt;ctrls is not
       NULL, XkbGetControls modifies only those portions of xkb-&gt;ctrls  corre-
       sponding to the values specified by which.

       XkbGetControls  returns  Success  if  successful; otherwise, it returns
       BadAlloc if it cannot obtain sufficient storage,  BadMatch  if  xkb  is
       NULL or which is empty, or BadImplementation.

       To  free  the  ctrls  member of a keyboard description, use XkbFreeCon-

       The num_groups field in the ctrls structure  is  always  filled  in  by
       XkbGetControls, regardless of which bits are selected by which.

       Success        The  XkbGetControls function returns Success if success-

       BadAlloc       Unable to allocate storage

                      Invalid reply from server

       BadMatch       A compatible version of Xkb was  not  available  in  the
                      server or an argument has correct type and range, but is
                      otherwise invalid
