XkbGetSlowKeysDelay(3)           XKB FUNCTIONS          XkbGetSlowKeysDelay(3)

       XkbGetSlowKeysDelay - Gets the SlowKeys acceptance delay for a keyboard

       Bool XkbGetSlowKeysDelay ( display, device_spec, delay_rtrn )
             Display *display;
             unsigned int device_spec;
             unsigned int *delay_rtrn ;

       - display
              connection to X server

       - device_spec
              device ID, or XkbUseCoreKbd

       - delay_rtrn
              backfilled with SlowKeys delay, ms

       Some users may accidentally bump keys while moving  a  hand  or  typing
       stick toward the key they want. Usually, the keys that are accidentally
       bumped are just hit for a very short period of time. The SlowKeys  con-
       trol  helps filter these accidental bumps by telling the server to wait
       a specified period, called the SlowKeys acceptance delay, before deliv-
       ering key events. If the key is released before this period elapses, no
       key events are generated. Users can then bump any  number  of  keys  on
       their way to the one they want without accidentally getting those char-
       acters. Once they have reached the key they want, they  can  then  hold
       the  desired key long enough for the computer to accept it. SlowKeys is
       a boolean control with one configurable attribute.

       When the SlowKeys control is active, the server reports the initial key
       press,  subsequent  acceptance  or rejection, and release of any key to
       interested clients by sending an appropriate AccessXNotify  event  (see
       section 10.6.4).

       The  server can generate XkbAccessXNotify events for some of the global
       keyboard controls.  The detail field describes what AccessX event  just
       occurred  and can be any of the values in Table 1.  The server can gen-
       erate XkbAccessXNotify events for some of the global keyboard controls.
       The  detail field describes what AccessX event just occurred and can be
       any of the values in Table 1.

       c s l l l lw(4i).  Table 1 AccessXNotify Events  _  detail    Reason  _
       XkbAXN_SKPress T{  A  key  was  pressed  when SlowKeys was enabled.  T}
       XkbAXN_SKAccept     T{  A  key  was  accepted  (held  longer  than  the
       SlowKeys  delay).   T}  XkbAXN_SKRelease    T{ An accepted SlowKeys key
       was released.  T} XkbAXN_SKReject     T{ A key was  rejected  (released
       before  the  SlowKeys  delay expired).  T} XkbAXN_BKAccept     T{ A key
       was accepted  by  BounceKeys.   T}  XkbAXN_BKReject     T{  A  key  was
       rejected (pressed before the BounceKeys delay expired).  T} XkbAXN_AXK-
       Warning   T{  AccessXKeys  is  about  to  turn  on/off  StickyKeys   or
       BounceKeys.  T}

       The  keycode  field  reports the keycode of the key for which the event
       occurred. If the action is related to SlowKeys, the slowKeysDelay field
       contains  the  current  SlowKeys  acceptance  delay.  If  the action is
       related to BounceKeys, the debounceDelay  field  contains  the  current
       BounceKeys debounce delay.

       Selecting for AccessX Events

       To  receive  XkbAccessXNotify events under all possible conditions, use
       XkbSelectEvents and pass XkbAccesXNotifyMask in both bits_to_change and

       To  receive  XkbStateNotify  events  only under certain conditions, use
       XkbSelectEventDetails using  XkbAccessXNotify  as  the  event_type  and
       specifying  the  desired  state  changes  in  bits_to_change  and  val-
       ues_for_bits using mask bits from Table 2.

       XkbGetSlowKeysDelay requests the attributes  of  the  SlowKeys  control
       from  the  server,  waits for a reply and backfills delay_rtrn with the
       SlowKeys delay attribute.  XkbGetSlowKeysDelay returns True if success-
       ful; , XkbGetSlowKeysDelay returns False.

       True           The  XkbGetSlowKeysDelay  function  returns  True if the
                      request of the Slowkeys control from the server was suc-

       False          The XkbGetSlowKeysDelay function returns False if a com-
                      patible version of the Xkb extension is not available in
                      the server.

       The structure for the XkbAccessXNotify event type is 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;       /* XkbAccessXNotify */
           int            device;         /* Xkb device ID, will not be XkbUseCoreKbd
           int            detail;         /* XkbAXN_* */
           KeyCode        keycode;        /* key of event */
           int            slowKeysDelay;  /* current SlowKeys delay */
           int            debounceDelay;  /* current debounce delay */
       } XkbAccessXNotifyEvent;
