XkbSetAutoRepeatRate(3) 		  XKB FUNCTIONS 		  XkbSetAutoRepeatRate(3)

NAME
       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate - Sets the attributes of the RepeatKeys control for a keyboard device

SYNOPSIS
       Bool XkbSetAutoRepeatRate ( display, device_spec, timeout, interval )
	     Display * display ;
	     unsigned int  device_spec ;
	     unsigned int  timeout ;
	     unsigned int  interval ;

ARGUMENTS
       - display
	      connection to X server

       - device_spec
	      device to configure, or XkbUseCoreKbd

       - timeout
	      initial delay, ms

       - interval
	      delay between repeats, ms

DESCRIPTION
       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
       versa.

       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.

       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate sends a request to the X server to configure the  AutoRepeat  control
       attributes to the values specified in timeout and interval.

       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate  does  not	wait  for a reply; it normally returns True. Specifying a
       zero value for either timeout or interval causes the server to generate a BadValue  proto-
       col  error.  If	a compatible version of the Xkb extension is not available in the server,
       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate returns False.

RETURN VALUES
       True	      The XkbSetAutoRepeatRate function returns True normally.

       False	      The XkbSetAutoRepeatRate function returns False if a compatible version  of
		      the Xkb extension is not available in the server.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadValue       An argument is out of range
