NAME
XkbTranslateKeySym - Find the string and symbol associated with a keysym for a given keyboard state SYNOPSIS
int XkbTranslateKeySym (Display *dpy, KeySym *sym_inout, unsigned int mods, char *buf, int nbytes, int *extra_rtrn); ARGUMENTS
- dpy connection to X server - sym_inout symbol to be translated; result of translation - mods modifiers to apply to sym_inout - buf buffer into which returned string is written - nbytes size of buffer in bytes - extra_rtrn number of bytes overflow DESCRIPTION
XkbTranslateKeySym applies the transformations specified in mods to the symbol specified by sym_inout. It returns in buf the string, if any, associated with the keysym for the current locale. If the transformations in mods changes the keysym, sym_inout is updated accord- ingly. If the string returned is larger than nbytes, a count of bytes that does not fit into the buffer is returned in extra_rtrn. Xkb- TranslateKeySym returns the number of bytes it placed into buf. RETURN VALUES
buf Returns the string, if any, associated with the keysym for the current locale. X Version 11 libX11 1.3.2 XkbTranslateKeySym(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. SEE ALSO
