XkbGetKeySyms(3)                 XKB FUNCTIONS                XkbGetKeySyms(3)



NAME
       XkbGetKeySyms  -  Obtain the symbols for a subset of the keys in a key-
       board description

SYNOPSIS
       Status XkbGetKeySyms ( dpy, first, num, xkb )
             Display * dpy;
             unsigned int first;
             unsigned int num;
             XkbDescPtr xkb;

ARGUMENTS
       - dpy  connection to X server

       - first
              keycode of first key to get

       - num  number of keycodes for which syms desired

       - xkb  Xkb description to be updated

DESCRIPTION
       XkbGetKeySyms sends a request to  the  server  to  obtain  the  set  of
       keysyms bound to num keys starting with the key whose keycode is first.
       It waits for a reply and returns the keysyms in the map.syms  field  of
       xkb.   If  successful, XkbGetKeySyms returns Success. The xkb parameter
       must be a pointer to a valid Xkb keyboard description.

       If the client  map  in  the  xkb  parameter  has  not  been  allocated,
       XkbGetKeySyms  allocates  and  initializes it before obtaining the sym-
       bols.

       If a compatible version of Xkb is not available in the  server  or  the
       Xkb  extension has not been properly initialized, XkbGetKeySyms returns
       BadAccess. If num is  less  than  1  or  greater  than  XkbMaxKeyCount,
       XkbGetKeySyms   returns  BadValue.  If  any  allocation  errors  occur,
       XkbGetKeySyms returns BadAlloc.

RETURN VALUES
       Success        The XkbGetKeySyms function returns Success if it gets  a
                      reply  to  a  request to the server to obtain the set of
                      keysyms bound to num keys starting with  the  key  whose
                      keycode is first.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAccess      The Xkb extension has not been properly initialized

       BadAlloc       Unable to allocate storage

       BadValue       An argument is out of range
