XkbSARedirectSetVMods(3)		  XKB FUNCTIONS 		 XkbSARedirectSetVMods(3)

NAME
       XkbSARedirectSetVMods - Sets the vmods0 and vmods1 of act from v

SYNOPSIS
       void XkbSARedirectSetVMods macro ( act, v )
	     XkbRedirectKeyAction act;
	     unsigned int v;

ARGUMENTS
       - act  action in which to set vmods

       - v    new value for virtual modifiers

DESCRIPTION
       Actions	associated  with  the XkbRedirectKeyAction structure generate KeyPress and KeyRe-
       lease events containing a keycode different from the key that was pressed or released.

       The type field for the XkbRedirectKeyAction structure should always be  XkbSA_RedirectKey.
       Key  presses  cause a KeyPress event for the key specified by the new_key field instead of
       the actual key. The state reported in this event reports the current  effective	modifiers
       changed	as  follows: any real modifiers selected by the mods_mask field are set to corre-
       sponding values from the mods field. Any real modifiers bound  to  the  virtual	modifiers
       specified  by  the vmods_mask0 and vmods_mask1 fields are either set or cleared, depending
       on the corresponding values in the vmods0 and vmods1 fields. If the real and virtual modi-
       fier definitions specify conflicting values for a single modifier, the real modifier defi-
       nition has priority.

       Key releases cause a KeyRelease event for the key specified by the new_key  field  instead
       of  the	actual key. The state for this event consists of the effective keyboard modifiers
       at the time of the release, changed as described previously.

       The XkbSA_RedirectKey action normally redirects to another key on the same device  as  the
       key  that caused the event, unless that device does not belong to the input extension Key-
       Class, in which case this action causes an event on the core keyboard device.  (The  input
       extension  categorizes  devices	by breaking them into classes. Keyboards, and other input
       devices with keys, are classified as KeyClass devices by the input extension.)

       The vmods_mask0 and vmods_mask1 fields actually represent one vmods_mask value.	Xkb  pro-
       vides macros to convert between the two formats.

       XkbSARedirectSetVModsMask sets the vmods0 and vmods1 of act from v.
