XkbAddDeviceLedInfo(3) XKB FUNCTIONS XkbAddDeviceLedInfo(3)


XkbAddDeviceLedInfo - Initialize an XkbDeviceLedInfoRec structure


XkbDeviceLedInfoPtr XkbAddDeviceLedInfo (XkbDeviceInfoPtr device_info, unsigned int led_class, unsigned int led_id);


- device_info
structure in which to add LED info
- led_class
input extension class for LED device of interest
- led_id
input extension ID for LED device of interest


XkbAddDeviceLedInfo first checks to see whether an entry matching led_class and led_id already exists in the device_info->leds array. If it finds a matching entry, it returns a pointer to that entry. Otherwise, it checks to be sure there is at least one empty entry in device_info->leds and extends it if there is not enough room. It then increments device_info->num_leds and fills in the next available entry in device_info->leds with led_class and led_id.

If successful, XkbAddDeviceLedInfo returns a pointer to the XkbDeviceLedInfoRec structure that was initialized. If unable to allocate sufficient storage, or if device_info points to an invalid XkbDeviceInfoRec structure, or if led_class or led_id are inappropriate, XkbAddDeviceLedInfo returns NULL.

To allocate additional space for button actions in an XkbDeviceInfoRec structure, use XkbResizeDeviceButtonActions.


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