XChangeDeviceDontPropagateList(3)	   X FUNCTIONS		XChangeDeviceDontPropagateList(3)

NAME
       XChangeDeviceDontPropagateList,	XGetDeviceDontPropagateList  -	query or change the dont-
       propagate-list for extension devices

SYNTAX
       int XChangeDeviceDontPropagateList(Display *display, Window *window, int  *count,  XEvent-
	      Class *event_list, int mode);

       XEventClass *XGetDeviceDontPropagateList(Display *display, Window *window, int *count);

ARGUMENTS
       display	   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       window	   Specifies the window whose dont-propagate-list is to be queried or modified.

       event_list  Specifies a pointer to a list of event classes.

       mode	   Specifies the mode.	You can pass AddToList , or DeleteFromList.

       count	   Specifies the number of event classes in the list.

DESCRIPTION
       The  XChangeDeviceDontPropagateList request modifies the list of events that should not be
       propagated to ancestors of the event window.  This request allows extension events  to  be
       added  to  or  deleted  from that list.	By default, all events are propagated to ancestor
       windows.  Once modified, the list remains modified for the life of the window.  Events are
       not removed from the list because the client that added them has terminated.

       Suppression  of	event  propagation  is	not allowed for all input extension events.  If a
       specified event class is one that cannot be suppressed,	a  BadClass  error  will  result.
       Events that can be suppressed include DeviceKeyPress, DeviceKeyRelease, DeviceButtonPress,
       DeviceButtonRelease, DeviceMotionNotify, ProximityIn, and ProximityOut.

       XChangeDeviceDontPropagateList can generate a BadDevice, BadClass, or BadValue error.

       The XGetDeviceDontPropagateList request queries the list of  events  that  should  not  be
       propagated to ancestors of the event window.

       XGetDeviceDontPropagateList can generate a BadClass  or BadWindow error.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadDevice   An  invalid	device was specified.  The specified device does not exist or has
		   not been opened by this client via  XOpenInputDevice.   This  error	may  also
		   occur  if  some  other  client has caused the specified device to become the X
		   keyboard or X pointer device via the XChangeKeyboardDevice or  XChangePointer-
		   Device requests.

       BadValue    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 alterna-
		   tives can generate this error.

       BadWindow   An invalid window id was specified.

       BadClass    An invalid event class was specified.
