SYNOPSIS

Bool XkbSetNamedIndicator (Display *dpy, unsigned int device_spec, Atom name, Bool change_state, Bool state, Bool create_new, XkbIndicatorMapPtr map);    

ARGUMENTS

- dpy connection to the X server
- device_spec
  device ID, or XkbUseCoreKbd
- name name of the indicator to change
- change_state
  whether to change the indicator state or not
- state desired new state for the indicator
- create_new
  whether a new indicator with the specified name should be created when necessary
- map new map for the indicator

DESCRIPTION

If a compatible version of the Xkb extension is not available in the server, XkbSetNamedIndicator returns False. Otherwise, it sends a request to the X server to change the indicator specified by name and returns True.

If change_state is True, and the optional parameter, state, is not NULL, XkbSetNamedIndicator tells the server to change the state of the named indicator to the value specified by state.

If an indicator with the name specified by name does not already exist, the create_new parameter tells the server whether it should create a new named indicator. If create_new is True, the server finds the first indicator that doesn’t have a name and gives it the name specified by name. If the optional parameter, map, is not NULL, XkbSetNamedIndicator tells the server to change the indicator’s map to the values specified in map.

In addition, it can also generate XkbIndicatorStateNotify, XkbIndicatorMapNotify, and XkbNamesNotify events.

RETURN VALUES

True The XkbSetNamedIndicator function returns True if a compatible version of the Xkb extension is available in the server.
False The XkbSetNamedIndicator function returns False if a compatible version of the Xkb extension is not available in the server.
