XSELECTEXTENSIONEVEN(3) 						  XSELECTEXTENSIONEVEN(3)

NAME
       XSelectExtensionEvent, XGetSelectedExtensionEvents - select extension events, get the list
       of currently selected extension events

SYNOPSIS
       #include <X11/extensions/XInput.h>

       XSelectExtensionEvent( Display *display,
			      Window w,
			      XEventClass *event_list,
			      int event_count);

       XGetSelectedExtensionEvents( Display *display,
				    Window w,
				    int *this_client_event_count_return,
				    XEventClass **this_client_event_list_return,
				    int *all_clients_event_count_return,
				    XEventClass **all_clients_event_list_return);

       display
	      Specifies the connection to the X server.

       w
	      Specifies the window whose events you are interested in.

       event_list
	      Specifies the list of event classes that describe the
	      events you are interested in.

       event_count
	      Specifies the count of event classes in the event list.

       this_client_event_count_return
	      Returns the count of event classes selected by this
	      client.

       this_client_event_list_return
	      Returns a pointer to the list of event classes selected
	      by this client.

       all_clients_event_count_return
	      Returns the count of event classes selected by all
	      clients.

       all_clients_event_list_return
	      Returns a pointer to the list of event classes selected
	      by all clients.

DESCRIPTION
	   The XSelectExtensionEvent request causes the X server to report
	   the events associated with the specified list of event classes.
	   Initially, X will not report any of these events. Events are
	   reported relative to a window. If a window is not interested in
	   a device event, it usually propagates to the closest ancestor
	   that is interested, unless the do_not_propagate mask prohibits
	   it.

	   Multiple clients can select for the same events on the same
	   window with the following restrictions:
	     * Multiple clients can select events on the same window
	       because their event masks are disjoint. When the X server
	       generates an event, it reports it to all interested
	       clients.
	     * Only one client at a time can select a DeviceButtonPress
	       event with automatic passive grabbing enabled, which is
	       associated with the event class DeviceButtonPressGrab. To
	       receive DeviceButtonPress events without automatic passive
	       grabbing, use event class DeviceButtonPress but do not
	       specify event class DeviceButtonPressGrab.

	   The server reports the event to all interested clients.

	   Information contained in the XDevice structure returned by
	   XOpenDevice is used by macros to obtain the event classes that
	   clients use in making XSelectExtensionEvent requests. Currently
	   defined macros include DeviceKeyPress, DeviceKeyRelease,
	   DeviceButtonPress, DeviceButtonRelese, DeviceMotionNotify,
	   DeviceFocusIn, DeviceFocusOut, ProximityIn, ProximityOut,
	   DeviceStateNotify, DeviceMappingNotify, ChangeDeviceNotify,
	   DevicePointerMotionHint, DeviceButton1Motion,
	   DeviceButton2Motion, DeviceButton3Motion, DeviceButton4Motion,
	   DeviceButton5Motion, DeviceButtonMotion, DeviceOwnerGrabButton,
	   DeviceButtonPressGrab, and NoExtensionEvent.

	   To obtain the proper event class for a particular device, one
	   of the above macros is invoked using the XDevice structure for
	   that device. For example,
			DeviceKeyPress (*device, type, eventclass);

	   returns the DeviceKeyPress event type and the eventclass for
	   selecting DeviceKeyPress events from this device.

	   XSelectExtensionEvent can generate a BadWindow or BadClass
	   error. The XGetSelectedExtensionEvents request reports the
	   extension events selected by this client and all clients for
	   the specified window. This request returns pointers to two
	   XEventClass arrays. One lists the input extension events
	   selected by this client from the specified window. The other
	   lists the event classes selected by all clients from the
	   specified window. You should use XFree to free these two
	   arrays.

	   XGetSelectedExtensionEvents can generate a BadWindow error.

DIAGNOSTICS
	   BadWindow
		  A value for a Window argument does not name a defined
		  window.

	   BadClass
		  A value for an XEventClass is invalid.
