XkbSetBounceKeysDelay(3)         XKB FUNCTIONS        XkbSetBounceKeysDelay(3)

       XkbSetBounceKeysDelay - Sets the BounceKeys delay for a keyboard device

       Bool XkbSetBounceKeysDelay ( display, device_spec, delay )
             Display *display;
             unsigned int device_spec;
             unsigned int *delay;

       - display
              connection to X server

       - device_spec
              device ID, or XkbUseCoreKbd

       - delay
              backfilled with bounce keys delay, ms

       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.

       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.

       c  s  s l l l l l lw(3i).  Table 2 AccessXNotify Event Details _ XkbAc-
       cessXNotify Event  Details  Value     Circumstances  _  XkbAXN_SKPress-

       ceptMask (1<<1)    T{  Slow   key   accept   notification   wanted   T}

       Some  users  may  accidentally  "bounce" on a key when they release it.
       They press it once, then accidentally press it again after they release
       it. The BounceKeys control temporarily disables a key after it has been
       pressed, effectively "debouncing" the keyboard. The period of time  the
       key  is disabled after it is released is known as the BounceKeys delay.
       BounceKeys is a boolean control.

       When the BounceKeys control is active, the server reports acceptance or
       rejection  of  any  key to interested clients by sending an appropriate
       AccessXNotify event.

       XkbSetBounceKeysDelay sends a request to configure the BounceKeys  con-
       trol  to  the server. It does not wait for a reply and normally returns
       True. Specifying a value of zero for the delay parameter causes XkbSet-
       BounceKeysDelay  to generate a BadValue protocol error. If a compatible
       version of the Xkb extension is not available in  the  server,  XkbSet-
       BounceKeysDelay returns False.

       True           The  XkbSetBounceKeysDelay function returns True when it
                      sends a request to configure the BounceKeys  control  to
                      the server.

       False          The  XkbSetBounceKeysDelay  function  returns False if a
                      compatible 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;
