XkbGetControlsChanges(3)         XKB FUNCTIONS        XkbGetControlsChanges(3)



NAME
       XkbGetControlsChanges  - Updates a local copy of a keyboard description
       with the changes previously noted by one or more calls  to  XkbNoteCon-
       trolsChanges

SYNOPSIS
       XkbGetControlsChanges ( dpy, xkb, changes )
             Display * dpy;
             XkbDescPtr xkb;
             XkbNameChangesPtr changes;

ARGUMENTS
       - dpy  connection to X server

       - xkb  xkb->ctrls will be updated

       - changes
              indicates which parts of xkb->ctrls to update

DESCRIPTION
       Whenever a field in the controls structure changes in the server's key-
       board description, the server sends an XkbControlsNotify event  to  all
       interested clients.To receive XkbControlsNotify events under all possi-
       ble conditions, use XkbSelectEvents and pass  XkbControlsNotifyMask  in
       both bits_to_change and values_for_bits.

       To  receive XkbControlsNotify events only under certain conditions, use
       XkbSelectEventDetails using XkbControlsNotify  as  the  event_type  and
       specifying  the  desired  state  changes  in  bits_to_change  and  val-
       ues_for_bits using mask bits from Table 1.

       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  the  table  (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.

       trolsMask  ok        (0xF8001FFF)

       The  changed_ctrls  field  specifies  the controls components that have
       changed and consists of bits taken from the masks defined in Table 10.7
       with "ok" in the changed_ctrls column.

       The  controls  currently  enabled  in  the  server  are reported in the
       enabled_ctrls field. If any controls  were  just  enabled  or  disabled
       (that  is,  the  contents of the enabled_ctrls field changed), they are
       flagged in the enabled_ctrl_changes field. The  valid  bits  for  these
       fields   are   the  masks  listed  in  Table  10.7  with  "ok"  in  the
       enabled_ctrls column. The num_groups field reports the number of groups
       bound to the key belonging to the most number of groups and is automat-
       ically updated when the keyboard mapping changes.

       If the change was caused by a request from a client,  the  keycode  and
       event_type  fields  are  set  to  zero  and the req_major and req_minor
       fields identify the request. The req_major value is  the  same  as  the
       major  extension  opcode.  Otherwise,  event_type is set to the type of
       event that caused the change (one of KeyPress,  KeyRelease,  DeviceKey-
       Press,  DeviceKeyRelease,  ButtonPress or ButtonRelease), and req_major
       and req_minor are undefined. If  event_type  is  KeyPress,  KeyRelease,
       DeviceKeyPress,  or  DeviceKeyRelease,  the keycode field is set to the
       key that caused the change. If event_type is ButtonPress  or  ButtonRe-
       lease, keycode contains the button number.

       When  a  client  receives  an  XkbControlsNotify event, it can note the
       changes in a changes structure using XkbNoteControlsChanges.

       XkbGetControlsChanges  examines  the  changes  parameter,  queries  the
       server  for  the necessary information, and copies the results into the
       xkb-&gt;ctrls keyboard description. If the ctrls field  of  xkb  is  NULL,
       XkbGetControlsChanges  allocates  and initializes it. To free the ctrls
       field, use XkbFreeControls.

       XkbGetControlsChanges returns Success if successful  and  can  generate
       BadAlloc, BadImplementation, and BadMatch errors.

RETURN VALUES
       Success        The  XkbGetControlsChanges  function  returns Success if
                      the query of the server was successful.

STRUCTURES
       The structure for the XkbControlsNotify event is defined as follows:

       typedef struct {
           int           type;          /* Xkb extension base event code */
           unsigned long serial;        /* X server serial number for event */
           Bool          send_event;    /* True => synthetically generated */
           Display *     display;       /* server connection where event generated */
           Time          time;          /* server time when event generated */
           int           xkb_type;      /* XkbCompatMapNotify */
           int           device;        /* Xkb device ID, will not be XkbUseCoreKbd */
           unsigned int  changed_ctrls; /* bits indicating which controls data have
       changed*/
           unsigned int  enabled_ctrls; /* controls currently enabled in server */
           unsigned int  enabled_ctrl_changes; /* bits indicating enabled/disabled
       controls */
           int           num_groups;    /* current number of keyboard groups */
           KeyCode       keycode;       /* != 0 => keycode of key causing change */
           char          event_type;    /* Type of event causing change */
           char          req_major;     /* major event code of event causing change */
           char          req_minor;     /* minor event code of event causing change */
       } XkbControlsNotifyEvent;

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAlloc       Unable to allocate storage

       BadImplementation
                      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
