XkbKeyGroupInfo(3)			  XKB FUNCTIONS 		       XkbKeyGroupInfo(3)

NAME
       XkbKeyGroupInfo	-  Returns the number of groups of symbols bound to the key corresponding
       to keycode

SYNOPSIS
       unsigned char XkbKeyGroupInfo macro ( xkb, keycode )
	     XkbDescPtr xkb;
	     KeyCode keycode;

ARGUMENTS
       - xkb  Xkb description of interest

       - keycode
	      keycode of interest

DESCRIPTION
       The group_info field of an XkbSymMapRec is an  encoded  value  containing  the  number  of
       groups  of  symbols bound to the key as well as the specification of the treatment of out-
       of-range groups. It is legal for a key to have zero groups, in which case it also has zero
       symbols	and  all  events from that key yield NoSymbol.	To obtain the number of groups of
       symbols bound to the key, use XkbKeyNumGroups.  To change the number of groups bound to	a
       key,  use  XkbChangeTypesOfKey.	To obtain a mask that determines the treatment of out-of-
       range groups, use XkbKeyGroupInfo and XkbOutOfRangeGroupInfo.

       The keyboard controls contain a groups_wrap  field  specifying  the  handling  of  illegal
       groups  on a global basis. That is, when the user performs an action causing the effective
       group to go out of the legal range, the groups_wrap field specifies how to  normalize  the
       effective  keyboard  group to a group that is legal for the keyboard as a whole, but there
       is no guarantee that the normalized group will be within the range of legal groups for any
       individual  key. The per-key group_info field specifies how a key treats a legal effective
       group if the key does not have a type specified for the group of concern. For example, the
       Enter  key  usually has just one group defined. If the user performs an action causing the
       global keyboard group to change	to  Group2,  the  group_info  field  for  the  Enter  key
       describes how to handle this situation.

       Out-of-range groups for individual keys are mapped to a legal group using the same options
       as are used for the overall keyboard group. The particular type of mapping  used  is  con-
       trolled by the bits set in the group_info flag, as shown in Table 1.

       XkbKeyGroupInfo	returns  the  group_info field from the XkbSymMapRec structure associated
       with the key corresponding to keycode.

STRUCTURES
       The KeySymMapRec structure is defined as follows:

       #define XkbNumKbdGroups		   4
       #define XkbMaxKbdGroup		   (XkbNumKbdGroups-1)

       typedef struct { 		   /* map to keysyms for a single keycode */
	   unsigned char       kt_index[XkbNumKbdGroups];  /* key type index for each group */
	   unsigned char       group_info; /* # of groups and out of range group handling */
	   unsigned char       width;	   /* max # of shift levels for key */
	   unsigned short      offset;	   /* index to keysym table in syms array */
       } XkbSymMapRec, *XkbSymMapPtr;

       The XkbControlsRec structure is defined as follows:

       #define XkbMaxLegalKeyCode     255
       #define XkbPerKeyBitArraySize  ((XkbMaxLegalKeyCode+1)/8)

       typedef struct {

	   XkbModsRec	   ignore_lock;      /* modifiers to ignore when checking for grab */
	   unsigned int    enabled_ctrls;    /* 1 bit => corresponding boolean control enabled */

	   unsigned short  mk_delay;	     /* ms delay to second mouse motion event */
	   unsigned short  mk_interval;      /* ms delay between repeat mouse events */
	   unsigned short  mk_time_to_max;   /* # intervals until constant mouse move */
	   unsigned short  mk_max_speed;     /* multiplier for maximum mouse speed */
	   short	   mk_curve;	     /* determines mouse move curve type */

	   unsigned int    axt_ctrls_mask;   /* which bits in enabled_ctrls to modify */
	   unsigned int    axt_ctrls_values; /* values for new bits in enabled_ctrls */
	   unsigned char   per_key_repeat[XkbPerKeyBitArraySize];  /* per key auto repeat */
       } XkbControlsRec, *XkbControlsPtr;

       The XkbControlsRec structure is defined as follows:

       #define XkbMaxLegalKeyCode     255
       #define XkbPerKeyBitArraySize  ((XkbMaxLegalKeyCode+1)/8)

       typedef struct {
