]> XkbSetPtrActionY




XkbSetPtrActionY − Sets the high_YYY and low_YYY fields of act from the signed integer value y


void XkbSetPtrActionY

(XkbPtrAction act, int y);


− act

action in which to set Y

− y

new value to set


Actions associated with the XkbPtrAction structure move the pointer when keys are pressed and released.

If the MouseKeys control is not enabled, KeyPress and KeyRelease events are treated as though the action is XkbSA_NoAction.

If the MouseKeys control is enabled, a server action of type XkbSA_MovePtr instructs the server to generate core pointer MotionNotify events rather than the usual KeyPress event, and the corresponding KeyRelease event disables any mouse keys timers that were created as a result of handling the XkbSA_MovePtr action.

The type field of the XkbPtrAction structure is always XkbSA_MovePtr.

The flags field is a bitwise inclusive OR of the masks shown in Table 1.

Each of the X and Y coordinantes of the XkbPtrAction structure is composed of two signed 16-bit values, that is, the X coordinate is composed of high_XXX and low_XXX, and similarly for the Y coordinate. Xkb provides the following macros, to convert between a signed integer and two signed 16-bit values in XkbPtrAction structures.


typedef struct _XkbPtrAction {
unsigned char type; /∗ XkbSA_MovePtr */
unsigned char flags; /∗ determines type of pointer motion */
unsigned char high_XXX; /∗ x coordinate, high bits*/
unsigned char low_XXX; /∗ y coordinate, low bits */
unsigned char high_YYY; /∗ x coordinate, high bits */
unsigned char low_YYY; /∗ y coordinate, low bits */
} XkbPtrAction;
