XkbAllocDeviceInfo − Obtain an XkbDeviceInfoRec structure


XkbDeviceInfoPtr XkbAllocDeviceInfo

(unsigned int device_spec, unsigned

int n_buttons, unsigned int sz_leds);


− device_spec

device ID with which structure will be used

− n_buttons

number of button actions to allocate space for

− sz_leds

number of LED feedbacks to allocate space for


XkbAllocDeviceInfo allocates space for an XkbDeviceInfoRec structure and initializes that structure’s device_spec field with the device ID specified by device_spec. If n_buttons is nonzero, n_buttons XkbActions are linked into the XkbDeviceInfoRec structure and initialized to zero. If sz_leds is nonzero, sz_leds XkbDeviceLedInfoRec structures are also allocated and linked into the XkbDeviceInfoRec structure. If you request XkbDeviceLedInfoRec structures be allocated using this request, you must initialize them explicitly.

To obtain an XkbDeviceLedInfoRec structure, use XkbAllocDeviceLedInfo.


Information about X Input Extension devices is transferred between a client program and the Xkb extension in an XkbDeviceInfoRec structure:
