XkbTranslateKeySym(3)            XKB FUNCTIONS           XkbTranslateKeySym(3)



NAME
       XkbTranslateKeySym  -  Find  the  string  and  symbol associated with a
       keysym for a given keyboard state

SYNOPSIS
       int XkbTranslateKeySym ( dpy , sym_inout  ,  mods  ,  buf  ,  nbytes  ,
       extra_rtrn )
             Display *dpy;
             KeySym *sym_inout;
             unsigned int  mods;
             char *buf;
             int nbytes;
             int *extra_rtrn;

ARGUMENTS
       - dpy  connection to X server

       - sym_inout
              symbol to be translated; result of translation

       - mods modifiers to apply to sym_inout

       - buf  buffer into which returned string is written

       - nbytes
              size of buffer in bytes

       - extra_rtrn
              number of bytes overflow

DESCRIPTION
       XkbTranslateKeySym applies the transformations specified in mods to the
       symbol specified by sym_inout.  It returns in buf the string,  if  any,
       associated  with  the keysym for the current locale. If the transforma-
       tions in mods changes the keysym, sym_inout is updated accordingly.  If
       the  string  returned is larger than nbytes, a count of bytes that does
       not fit into the buffer is returned in  extra_rtrn.  XkbTranslateKeySym
       returns the number of bytes it placed into buf.

RETURN VALUES
       buf            Returns  the  string, if any, associated with the keysym
                      for the current locale.
