XkbAddGeomDoodad - Add one doodad to a section of a keyboard geometry or to the top-level geometry


XkbDoodadPtr XkbAddGeomDoodad (XkbGeometryPtr geom , XkbSectionPtr section , Atom name );


  • - geom
        geometry to which the doodad is added
  • - section
        section, if any, to which the doodad is added
  • - name
        name of the new doodad


Xkb provides functions to add a single new element to the top-level keyboard geometry. In each case the num_ *fields of the corresponding structure is incremented by 1. These functions do not change sz_*unless there is no more room in the array. Some of these functions fill in the values of the element's structure from the arguments. For other functions, you must explicitly write code to fill the structure's elements. The top-level geometry description includes a list of geometry properties.A geometry property associates an arbitrary string with an equally arbitrary name. Programs that display images of keyboards can use geometry properties as hints, but they are not interpreted by Xkb. No other geometry structures refer to geometry properties. A doodaddescribes some visible aspect of the keyboard that is not a key and is not a section. XkbAddGeomDoodadadds a doodad with name specified by nameto the geometry geomif sectionis NULL or to the section of the geometry specified by sectionif sectionis not NULL. XkbAddGeomDoodadreturns NULL if any of the parameters is empty or if it was not able to allocate space for the doodad. If there is already a doodad with the name namein the doodad array for the geometry (if sectionis NULL) or the section (if sectionis non-NULL), a pointer to that doodad is returned. To allocate space for an arbitrary number of doodads to a section, use the XkbAllocGeomSectionDoodadsfunction. To allocate space for an arbitrary number of doodads to a keyboard geometry, use the XkbAllocGeomDoodadsfunction.
