XSetPointerMapping(3X11)					     MIT X11R4						  XSetPointerMapping(3X11)

Name
       XSetPointerMapping, XGetPointerMapping - manipulate pointer settings

Syntax
       int XSetPointerMapping(display, map, nmap)
	  Display *display;
	  unsigned char map[];
	  int nmap;

       int XGetPointerMapping(display, map_return, nmap)
	  Display *display;
	  unsigned char map_return[];
	  int nmap;

Arguments
       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       map	 Specifies the mapping list.

       map_return
		 Returns the mapping list.

       nmap	 Specifies the number of items in the mapping list.

Description
       The function sets the mapping of the pointer.  If it succeeds, the X server generates a event, and returns Element map[i] defines the logi-
       cal button number for the physical button i+1.  The length of the list must be the same as would return, or a error results.  A zero ele-
       ment disables a button, and elements are not restricted in value by the number of physical buttons.  However, no two elements can have the
       same nonzero value, or a error results.	If any of the buttons to be altered are logically in the down state, returns and the mapping is
       not changed.

       can generate a error.

       The function returns the current mapping of the pointer.  Pointer buttons are numbered starting from one.  returns the number of physical
       buttons actually on the pointer.  The nominal mapping for a pointer is map[i]=i+1.  The nmap argument specifies the length of the array
       where the pointer mapping is returned, and only the first nmap elements are returned in map_return.

Diagnostics
       Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted by the request.
		 Unless a specific range is specified for an argument, the full range defined by the argument's type is accepted. Any argument
		 defined as a set of alternatives can generate this error.

NAME
XSetPointerMapping, XGetPointerMapping - manipulate pointer settings SYNOPSIS
int XSetPointerMapping(display, map, nmap) Display *display; unsigned char map[]; int nmap; int XGetPointerMapping(display, map_return, nmap) Display *display; unsigned char map_return[]; int nmap; ARGUMENTS
Specifies the connection to the X server. Specifies the mapping list. Returns the mapping list. Specifies the number of items in the mapping list. DESCRIPTION
The XSetPointerMapping function sets the mapping of the pointer. If it succeeds, the X server generates a MappingNotify event, and XSet- PointerMapping returns MappingSuccess. Element map[i] defines the logical button number for the physical button i+1. The length of the list must be the same as XGetPointerMapping would return, or a BadValue error results. A zero element disables a button, and elements are not restricted in value by the number of physical buttons. However, no two elements can have the same nonzero value, or a BadValue error results. If any of the buttons to be altered are logically in the down state, XSetPointerMapping returns MappingBusy, and the mapping is not changed. XSetPointerMapping can generate a BadValue error. The XGetPointerMapping function returns the current mapping of the pointer. Pointer buttons are numbered starting from one. XGetPoint- erMapping returns the number of physical buttons actually on the pointer. The nominal mapping for a pointer is map[i]=i+1. The nmap argu- ment specifies the length of the array where the pointer mapping is returned, and only the first nmap elements are returned in map_return. DIAGNOSTICS
Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted by the request. Unless a specific range is specified for an argument, the full range defined by the argument's type is accepted. Any argument defined as a set of alternatives can generate this error. SEE ALSO
