XkbTranslateKeyCode(3)			  XKB FUNCTIONS 		   XkbTranslateKeyCode(3)

NAME
       XkbTranslateKeyCode -  Translate a keycode to a key symbol and modifiers

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 unconsumed 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.
