The core protocol allows only control over whether or not the entire keyboard or individ-
ual keys should auto-repeat when held down. RepeatKeys is a boolean control that extends
this capability by adding control over the delay until a key begins to repeat and the rate
at which it repeats. RepeatKeys is coupled with the core auto-repeat control: when
RepeatKeys is enabled or disabled, the core auto-repeat is enabled or disabled and vice
Auto-repeating keys are controlled by two attributes. The first, timeout, is the delay
after the initial press of an auto-repeating key and the first generated repeat event. The
second, interval, is the delay between all subsequent generated repeat events. As with all
boolean controls, configuring the attributes that determine how the control operates does
not automatically enable the control as a whole.
XkbGetAutoRepeatRate queries the server for the current values of the RepeatControls con-
trol attributes, backfills timeout_rtrn and interval_rtrn with them, and returns True. If
a compatible version of the Xkb extension is not available in the server XkbGetAutoRe-
peatRate returns False.
True The XkbGetAutoRepeatRate function returns True if a compatible version of
the Xkb extension is available in the server.
False The XkbGetAutoRepeatRate function returns False if a compatible version of
the Xkb extension is not available in the server.
