XkbLookupKeySym(3)						   XKB FUNCTIONS						XkbLookupKeySym(3)

XkbLookupKeySym - Find the symbol associated with a key for a particular state SYNOPSIS
Bool XkbLookupKeySym (Display *dpy, KeyCode key, unsigned int state, unsigned int *mods_rtrn, KeySym *sym_rtrn); ARGUMENTS
- dpy connection to X server - key key for which symbols are to be found - state state for which symbol should be found - mods_rtrn backfilled with unconsumed modifiers - sym_rtrn backfilled with symbol associated with key + state DESCRIPTION
XkbLookupKeySym is the equivalent of the core XLookupKeySym function. For the core keyboard, given a keycode key and an Xkb state state, XkbLookupKeySym returns the symbol associated with the key in sym_rtrn and the list of modifiers that should still be applied in mods_rtrn. The state parameter is the state from a KeyPress or KeyRelease event. XkbLookupKeySym returns True if it succeeds. SEE ALSO

XkbLookupKeyBinding - Find the string bound to a key by XRebindKeySym SYNOPSIS
int XkbLookupKeyBinding (Display *dpy, KeySym sym, unsigned int state, char *buf, int nbytes, int *extra_rtrn); ARGUMENTS
- dpy connection to server - sym connection to server - state state for which string is to be looked up - buf buffer into which returned string is written - nbytes size of buffer in bytes - extra_rtrn backfilled with number bytes overflow DESCRIPTION
XkbLookupKeyBinding is the equivalent of the core XLookupString function. XRebindKeysym binds an ASCII string to a specified keysym, so that the string and keysym are returned when the key is pressed and a speci- fied list of modifiers are also being held down. XkbLookupKeyBinding returns in buf the string associated with the keysym sym and modifier state state. buf is NULL terminated unless there's an overflow. 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 that it placed into buf.
