XtSetKeyTranslator(3Xt) 					     MIT X11R4						   XtSetKeyTranslator(3Xt)

Name
       XtSetKeyTranslator, XtTranslateKeycode, XtRegisterCaseConverter, XtConvertCase - convert KeySym to KeyCodes

Syntax
       void XtSetKeyTranslator(display, proc)
	 Display *display;
	 XtKeyProc proc;

       void XtTranslateKeycode(display, keycode, modifiers, modifiers_return, keysym_return)
	 Display *display;
	 KeyCode keycode;
	 Modifiers modifiers;
	 Modifiers *modifiers_return;
	 KeySym *keysym_return;

       void XtRegisterCaseConverter(display, proc, start, stop)
	 Display *display;
	 XtCaseProc proc;
	 KeySym start;
	 KeySym stop;

       void XtConvertCase(display, keysym, lower_return, upper_return)
	 Display *display;
	 KeySym keysym;
	 KeySym *lower_return;
	 KeySym *upper_return;

Arguments
       display	 Specifies the display.

       keycode	 Specifies the KeyCode to translate.

       keysym	 Specifies the KeySym to convert.

       keysym_return
		 Returns the resulting KeySym.

       lower_return
		 Returns the lowercase equivalent of the KeySym.

       upper_return
		 Returns the uppercase equivalent of the KeySym.

       modifiers Specifies the modifiers to the KeyCode.

       modifiers_return
		 Returns a mask that indicates the modifiers actually used to generate the KeySym.

       proc	 Specifies the procedure that is to perform key translations or conversions.

       start	 Specifies the first KeySym for which this converter is valid.

       stop	 Specifies the last KeySym for which this converter is valid.

Description
       The function sets the specified procedure as the current key translator.  The default translator is an that uses Shift and Lock modifiers
       with the interpretations defined by the core protocol.  It is provided so that new translators can call it to get default KeyCode-to-KeySym
       translations and so that the default translator can be reinstalled.

       The function passes the specified arguments directly to the currently registered KeyCode to KeySym translator.

       The registers the specified case converter.  The start and stop arguments provide the inclusive range of KeySyms for which this converter
       is to be called.  The new converter overrides any previous converters for KeySyms in that range.  No interface exists to remove converters;
       you need to register an identity converter.  When a new converter is registered, the Intrinsics refreshes the keyboard state if necessary.
       The default converter understands case conversion for all KeySyms defined in the core protocol.

       The function calls the appropriate converter and returns the results.  A user-supplied may need to use this function.

NAME
XtSetKeyTranslator, XtTranslateKeycode, XtRegisterCaseConverter, XtConvertCase - convert KeySym to KeyCodes SYNOPSIS
void XtSetKeyTranslator(display, proc) Display *display; XtKeyProc proc; void XtTranslateKeycode(display, keycode, modifiers, modifiers_return, keysym_return) Display *display; KeyCode keycode; Modifiers modifiers; Modifiers *modifiers_return; KeySym *keysym_return; void XtRegisterCaseConverter(display, proc, start, stop) Display *display; XtCaseProc proc; KeySym start; KeySym stop; void XtConvertCase(display, keysym, lower_return, upper_return) Display *display; KeySym keysym; KeySym *lower_return; KeySym *upper_return; ARGUMENTS
Specifies the display. Specifies the KeyCode to translate. Specifies the KeySym to convert. Returns the resulting KeySym. Returns the lowercase equivalent of the KeySym. Returns the uppercase equivalent of the KeySym. Specifies the modifiers to the KeyCode. Returns a mask that indicates the modifiers actually used to generate the KeySym. Specifies the procedure that is to perform key translations or conversions. Specifies the first KeySym for which this converter is valid. Specifies the last KeySym for which this converter is valid. DESCRIPTION
The XtSetKeyTranslator function sets the specified procedure as the current key translator. The default translator is XtTranslateKey, an XtKeyProc that uses Shift and Lock modifiers with the interpretations defined by the core protocol. It is provided so that new translators can call it to get default KeyCode-to-KeySym translations and so that the default translator can be reinstalled. The XtTranslateKeycode function passes the specified arguments directly to the currently registered KeyCode to KeySym translator. The XtRegisterCaseConverter registers the specified case converter. The start and stop arguments provide the inclusive range of KeySyms for which this converter is to be called. The new converter overrides any previous converters for KeySyms in that range. No interface exists to remove converters; you need to register an identity converter. When a new converter is registered, the Intrinsics refreshes the keyboard state if necessary. The default converter understands case conversion for all KeySyms defined in the core protocol. The XtConvertCase function calls the appropriate converter and returns the results. A user-supplied XtKeyProc may need to use this func- tion. SEE ALSO
