XkbGetKeySyms(3)			  XKB FUNCTIONS 			 XkbGetKeySyms(3)

NAME
       XkbGetKeySyms - Obtain the symbols for a subset of the keys in a keyboard description

SYNOPSIS
       Status XkbGetKeySyms ( dpy, first, num, xkb )
	     Display * dpy;
	     unsigned int first;
	     unsigned int num;
	     XkbDescPtr xkb;

ARGUMENTS
       - dpy  connection to X server

       - first
	      keycode of first key to get

       - num  number of keycodes for which syms desired

       - xkb  Xkb description to be updated

DESCRIPTION
       XkbGetKeySyms sends a request to the server to obtain the set of keysyms bound to num keys
       starting with the key whose keycode is first.  It  waits  for  a  reply	and  returns  the
       keysyms	in  the map.syms field of xkb.	If successful, XkbGetKeySyms returns Success. The
       xkb parameter must be a pointer to a valid Xkb keyboard description.

       If the client map in the xkb parameter has not been allocated, XkbGetKeySyms allocates and
       initializes it before obtaining the symbols.

       If a compatible version of Xkb is not available in the server or the Xkb extension has not
       been properly initialized, XkbGetKeySyms returns BadAccess. If  num  is	less  than  1  or
       greater	than  XkbMaxKeyCount,  XkbGetKeySyms  returns  BadValue. If any allocation errors
       occur, XkbGetKeySyms returns BadAlloc.

RETURN VALUES
       Success	      The XkbGetKeySyms function returns Success if it gets a reply to a  request
		      to  the server to obtain the set of keysyms bound to num keys starting with
		      the key whose keycode is first.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAccess      The Xkb extension has not been properly initialized

       BadAlloc       Unable to allocate storage

       BadValue       An argument is out of range
