XkbResizeKeyType(3)			  XKB FUNCTIONS 		      XkbResizeKeyType(3)

NAME
       XkbResizeKeyType - Change the number of levels in a key type

SYNOPSIS
       Status  XkbResizeKeyType (XkbDescPtr xkb, int type_ndx, int map_count, Bool want_preserve,
	      int new_num_lvls);

ARGUMENTS
       - xkb  keyboard description containing client map to update

       - type_ndx
	      index in xkb->map->types of type to change

       - map_count
	      total # of map entries needed for the type

       - want_preserve
	      True => list of preserved modifiers is necessary

       - new_num_lvls
	      new max # of levels for type

DESCRIPTION
       XkbResizeKeyType changes the type specified by xkb->map->types[type_ndx], and  reallocates
       the  symbols and actions bound to all keys that use the type, if necessary.  XkbResizeKey-
       Type updates only the local copy of the types in xkb; to update the server's copy for  the
       physical device, use XkbSetMap or XkbChangeMap after calling XkbResizeKeyType.

       The map_count parameter specifies the total number of map entries needed for the type, and
       can be zero or greater. If map_count is zero, XkbResizeKeyType frees the existing map  and
       preserve entries for the type if they exist and sets them to NULL.

       The  want_preserve  parameter specifies whether a preserve list for the key should be cre-
       ated. If want_preserve is True, the preserve list with map_count entries is  allocated  or
       reallocated if it already exists. Otherwise, if want_preserve is False, the preserve field
       is freed if necessary and set to NULL.

       The new_num_lvls parameter specifies the new maximum number of shift levels for	the  type
       and is used to calculate and resize the symbols and actions bound to all keys that use the
       type.

       If type_ndx does not specify a legal type, new_num_lvls is less than 1, or  the	map_count
       is  less  than zero, XkbResizeKeyType returns BadValue. If XkbResizeKeyType encounters any
       problems with allocation, it returns BadAlloc. Otherwise, it returns Success.

RETURN VALUES
       Success	      The XkbResizeKeyType function returns Success if type_ndx specifies a legal
		      type, new_num_lvls is greater than zero and map_count is positive.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAlloc       Unable to allocate storage

       BadValue       An argument is out of range
