XkbSetAutoRepeatRate(3) 					   XKB FUNCTIONS					   XkbSetAutoRepeatRate(3)

XkbSetAutoRepeatRate - Sets the attributes of the RepeatKeys control for a keyboard device SYNOPSIS
Bool XkbSetAutoRepeatRate (Display *display, unsigned int device_spec, unsigned int timeout, 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 individual 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 protocol error. If a compatible version of the Xkb extension is not available in the server, XkbSetAutoRe- peatRate 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 X Version 11 libX11 1.5.0 XkbSetAutoRepeatRate(3)

XkbGetStickyKeysOptions(3)					   XKB FUNCTIONS					XkbGetStickyKeysOptions(3)

XkbGetStickyKeysOptions - Queries the current StickyKeys attributes for a keyboard device SYNOPSIS
Bool XkbGetStickyKeysOptions ( display, device_spec, options_rtrn ) Display *display; unsigned int device_spec; unsigned int *options_rtrn; ARGUMENTS
- display connection to X server - device_spec device ID, or XkbUseCoreKbd - options_rtrn backfilled with StickyKeys option mask DESCRIPTION
The StickyKeys control has two options that can be accessed via the ax_options of an XkbControlsRec structure. The first option, TwoKeys, specifies whether StickyKeys should automatically turn off when two keys are pressed at the same time. This feature is useful for shared computers so people who do not want them do not need to turn StickyKeys off if a previous user left StickyKeys on. The second option, LatchToLock, specifies whether or not StickyKeys locks a modifier when pressed twice in a row. XkbGetStickyKeysOptions requests the attributes of the StickyKeys control from the server, waits for a reply, and backfills options_rtrn with a mask indicating whether the individual StickyKeys options are on or off. Valid bits in options_rtrn are: XkbAX_TwoKeysMask XkbAX_LatchToLockMask XkbGetStickyKeysOptions returns True if successful; if a compatible version of the Xkb extension is not available in the server XkbGet- StickyKeysOptions returns False. RETURN VALUES
True The XkbGetStickyKeysOptions function returns True if the request for the attributes of the StickyKeys control from the server was successful. False The XkbGetStickyKeysOptions function returns False if a compatible version of the Xkb extension is not available in the server. STRUCTURES
