XkbAllocDeviceLedInfo - Obtain an XkbDeviceLedInfoRec structure


   Status   XkbAllocDeviceLedInfo   (XkbDeviceInfoPtr   device_info,   int


   - device_info
          structure in which to allocate LED space

   - num_needed
          number of indicators to allocate space for


   XkbAllocDeviceLedInfo allocates space for  an  XkbDeviceLedInfoRec  and
   places  it  in  device_info.   If  num_needed  is  nonzero,  num_needed
   XkbIndicatorMapRec structures are also allocated and  linked  into  the
   XkbDeviceLedInfoRec   structure.   If  you  request  XkbIndicatorMapRec
   structures be allocated using this request, you  must  initialize  them
   explicitly. All other fields are initialized to zero.

   To     initialize     an     XkbDeviceLedInfoRec     structure,     use


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

           char *               name;          / name for device */

           unsigned short      led_class;        / class for this LED device*/
           unsigned short      led_id;           / ID for this LED device */

   Each  indicator  has  its  own  set  of attributes that specify whether
   clients can explicitly set its state and whether it tracks the keyboard
   state.  The  attributes  of  each indicator are held in the maps array,
   which is an array of XkbIndicatorRec structures:

       typedef struct {
           unsigned char   flags;            / how the indicator can be changed */
           unsigned char   which_groups;     / match criteria for groups */
           unsigned char   groups;           / which keyboard groups the indicator watches */
           unsigned char   which_mods;       / match criteria for modifiers */
           XkbModsRec      mods;             / which modifiers the indicator watches */
           unsigned int    ctrls;            / which controls the indicator watches */
       } XkbIndicatorMapRec, *XkbIndicatorMapPtr;

   This indicator map specifies for each indicator:

   *    The conditions under which the keyboard modifier state affects the

   *    The  conditions  under  which the keyboard group state affects the

   *    The conditions under which  the  state  of  the  boolean  controls
        affects the indicator

   *    The  effect (if any) of attempts to explicitly change the state of
        the   indicator   using   the    functions    XkbSetControls    or
