XkbLookupKeySym(3) XKB FUNCTIONS XkbLookupKeySym(3)NAME
XkbLookupKeySym - Find the symbol associated with a key for a particular state
Bool XkbLookupKeySym (Display *dpy, KeyCode key, unsigned int state, unsigned int *mods_rtrn, KeySym *sym_rtrn);
- dpy connection to X server
- key key for which symbols are to be found
state for which symbol should be found
backfilled with unconsumed modifiers
backfilled with symbol associated with key + state
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.

XkbTranslateKeyCode(3) XKB FUNCTIONS XkbTranslateKeyCode(3)NAME
XkbTranslateKeyCode - Translate a keycode to a key symbol and modifiers
Bool XkbTranslateKeyCode (XkbDescPtr xkb, KeyCode key, unsigned int mods, unsigned int *mods_rtrn, KeySym *keysym_rtrn);
- xkb keyboard description to use for translation
- key keycode to translate
- mods modifiers to apply when translating key
backfilled with unconsumed modifiers
keysym resulting from translation
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.
