XkbTranslateKeyCode(3)			  XKB FUNCTIONS 		   XkbTranslateKeyCode(3)

NAME
       XkbTranslateKeyCode -  Translate a keycode to a key symbol and modifiers

SYNOPSIS
       Bool XkbTranslateKeyCode ( xkb, key, mods, mods_rtrn, keysym_rtrn )
	     XkbDescPtr xkb;
	     KeyCode key;
	     unsigned int mods;
	     unsigned int * mods_rtrn;
	     KeySym * keysym_rtrn;

ARGUMENTS
       - xkb  keyboard description to use for translation

       - key  keycode to translate

       - mods modifiers to apply when translating key

       - mods_rtrn
	      backfilled with unconsumed modifiers

       - keysym_rtrn
	      keysym resulting from translation

DESCRIPTION
       mods_rtrn is backfilled with the modifiers consumed by the translation process.	mods is a
       bitwise inclusive OR of	the  legal  modifier  masks:  ShiftMask,  LockMask,  ControlMask,
       Mod1Mask,  Mod2Mask,  Mod3Mask,	Mod4Mask,  Mod5Mask.The AlwaysConsumeShiftAndLock library
       control (see below), if enabled, causes XkbTranslateKeyCode to  consume	shift  and  lock.
       XkbTranslateKeyCode  returns True if the translation resulted in a keysym, and False if it
       resulted in NoSymbol.

       The AlwaysConsumeShiftAndLock control, if enabled, forces  XLookupString  to  consume  the
       Shift and Lock modifiers when processing all keys, even if the definition for the key type
       does not specify these  modifiers.  The	AlwaysConsumeShiftAndLock  control  is	unset  by
       default.
