XkbSetAutoRepeatRate(3) 		  XKB FUNCTIONS 		  XkbSetAutoRepeatRate(3)

NAME
       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate - Sets the attributes of the RepeatKeys control for a keyboard device

SYNOPSIS
       Bool  XkbSetAutoRepeatRate (Display *display, unsigned int device_spec, unsigned int time-
	      out, unsigned int interval);

ARGUMENTS
       - display
	      connection to X server

       - device_spec
	      device to configure, or XkbUseCoreKbd

       - timeout
	      initial delay, ms

       - interval
	      delay between repeats, ms

DESCRIPTION
       The core protocol allows only control over whether or not the entire keyboard or  individ-
       ual  keys  should auto-repeat when held down. RepeatKeys is a boolean control that extends
       this capability by adding control over the delay until a key begins to repeat and the rate
       at  which  it  repeats.	RepeatKeys  is	coupled  with  the core auto-repeat control: when
       RepeatKeys is enabled or disabled, the core auto-repeat is enabled or  disabled	and  vice
       versa.

       Auto-repeating  keys  are  controlled  by two attributes. The first, timeout, is the delay
       after the initial press of an auto-repeating key and the first generated repeat event. The
       second, interval, is the delay between all subsequent generated repeat events. As with all
       boolean controls, configuring the attributes that determine how the control operates  does
       not automatically enable the control as a whole.

       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate  sends  a request to the X server to configure the AutoRepeat control
       attributes to the values specified in timeout and interval.

       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate does not wait for a reply; it normally  returns  True.  Specifying	a
       zero  value for either timeout or interval causes the server to generate a BadValue proto-
       col error. If a compatible version of the Xkb extension is not available  in  the  server,
       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate returns False.

RETURN VALUES
       True	      The XkbSetAutoRepeatRate function returns True normally.

       False	      The  XkbSetAutoRepeatRate function returns False if a compatible version of
		      the Xkb extension is not available in the server.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadValue       An argument is out of range
