XmImMbLookupString -- An input manager function that retrieves a composed string from an
XmImMbLookupString returns a string composed in the locale associated with the widget's
input method and a KeySym that is currently mapped to the keycode in a KeyPress event. The
KeySym is obtained by using the standard interpretation of Shift, Lock and Group modifiers
as defined in the X Protocol specification.
An XIM will be created, but an XIC will not be created. One of the functions, XmImSetVal-
ues, XmImVaSetValues, or XmImGetXIC, needs to be called to create an XIC.
widget Specifies the ID of the widget registered with the input manager
event Specifies the key press event
Specifies the buffer in which the string is returned
Specifies the size of the buffer in bytes
Specifies a pointer to the KeySym returned if one exists
Specifies the status values returned by the function. These status values are
the same as those for the XmbLookupString function. The possible status values
The size of the buffer was insufficient to handle the returned string.
The contents of buffer_return and keysym_return are not modified. The
required buffer size is returned as a value of the function. The
client should repeat the call with a larger buffer size to receive the
No consistent input was composed. The contents of buffer_return and
keysym_return are not modified and the function returns a value of 0.
Some input characters were composed and returned in buffer_return. The
content of keysym_return is not modified. The function returns the
length of the string in bytes.
A keysym value was returned instead of a string. The content of buf-
fer_return is not modified and the function returns a value of 0.
A keysym value and a string were returned. The keysym value may not
necessarily correspond to the string returned. The function returns
the length of the string in bytes.
Return values depend on the status returned by the function. Refer to the description of
status values above.
