NAME

XkbTranslateKeyCode - Translate a keycode to a key symbol and modifiers

CONTENTS

Synopsis
Arguments
Description

SYNOPSIS

Bool XkbTranslateKeyCode (XkbDescPtr xkb, KeyCode key, unsigned int mods, unsigned int *mods_rtrn, KeySym *keysym_rtrn);    

ARGUMENTS

- xkb keyboard description to use for translation
- key keycode to translate
- mods modifiers to apply when translating key
- mods_rtrn
  backfilled with consumed modifiers
- keysym_rtrn
  keysym resulting from translation

DESCRIPTION

mods_rtrn is backfilled with the modifiers consumed by the translation process. mods is a bitwise inclusive OR of the legal modifier masks: ShiftMask, LockMask, ControlMask, Mod1Mask, Mod2Mask, Mod3Mask, Mod4Mask, Mod5Mask.The AlwaysConsumeShiftAndLock library control (see below), if enabled, causes XkbTranslateKeyCode to consume shift and lock. XkbTranslateKeyCode returns True if the translation resulted in a keysym, and False if it resulted in NoSymbol.

The AlwaysConsumeShiftAndLock control, if enabled, forces XLookupString to consume the Shift and Lock modifiers when processing all keys, even if the definition for the key type does not specify these modifiers. The AlwaysConsumeShiftAndLock control is unset by default.
