XkbAllocGeometry(3)			  XKB FUNCTIONS 		      XkbAllocGeometry(3)

NAME
       XkbAllocGeometry - Allocate an entire geometry

SYNOPSIS
       Status XkbAllocGeometry ( xkb, sizes )
	     XkbDescPtr xkb;
	     XkbGeometrySizesPtr sizes;

ARGUMENTS
       - xkb  keyboard description for which geometry is to be allocated

       - sizes
	      initial sizes for all geometry components

DESCRIPTION
       Xkb provides a number of functions to allocate and free subcomponents of a keyboard geome-
       try. Use these functions to create or modify keyboard geometries.  Note that  these  func-
       tions  merely  allocate	space  for the new element(s), and it is up to you to fill in the
       values explicitly in your code. These allocation functions increase sz_* but  never  touch
       num_* (unless there is an allocation failure, in which case they reset both sz_* and num_*
       to zero). These functions return Success if they succeed, BadAlloc if they are not able to
       allocate space, or BadValue if a parameter is not as expected.

       XkbAllocGeometry  allocates  a  keyboard  geometry and adds it to the keyboard description
       specified by xkb.  The keyboard description should be obtained via the  XkbGetKeyboard  or
       XkbAllocKeyboard  functions.  The  sizes  parameter specifies the number of elements to be
       reserved for the subcomponents of the keyboard geometry and can be  zero  or  more.  These
       subcomponents include the properties, colors, shapes, sections, and doodads.

       To free an entire geometry, use XkbFreeGeometry.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAlloc       Unable to allocate storage

       BadValue       An argument is out of range
