XkbChangeIndicators(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS		XkbChangeIndicators(3)

       XkbChangeIndicators  -  Changes indicator maps or state without passing
       the entire keyboard description

       Bool XkbChangeIndicators	(Display *dpy, XkbDescPtr  xkb,	 XkbIndicator-
	      ChangesPtr changes, unsigned int state);

       - dpy  connection to the	X server

       - xkb  keyboard description from	which names are	to be taken.

       - changes
	      indicators to be updated on the server

       - state
	      new state	of indicators listed in	changes->state_changes

       The  XkbIndicatorChangesRec identifies small modifications to the indi-
       cator map.  Use it with the function XkbChangeIndicators	to reduce  the
       amount of traffic sent to the server (see STRUCTURES).

       The  state_changes  field  is a mask that specifies the indicators that
       have changed state, and map_changes is a	mask that specifies the	 indi-
       cators whose maps have changed.

       XkbChangeIndicators  copies any maps specified by changes from the key-
       board description, xkb, to the server specified by dpy.	 If  any  bits
       are set in the state_changes field of changes, XkbChangeIndicators also
       sets the	state of those indicators to the values	specified in the state
       mask.  A	 1  bit	in state turns the corresponding indicator on, a 0 bit
       turns it	off.

       In addition, it can also	generate XkbIndicatorStateNotify and  XkbIndi-
       catorMapNotify events.

       Whenever	 an  indicator	changes	 state,	 the  server  sends XkbIndica-
       torStateNotify events to	all interested clients.	Similarly, whenever an
       indicator's  map	changes, the server sends XkbIndicatorMapNotify	events
       to all interested clients.

       To receive XkbIndicatorStateNotify  events,  use	 XkbSelectEvents  with
       both  the  bits_to_change and values_for_bits parameters	containing Xk-
       bIndicatorStateNotifyMask. To receive XkbIndicatorMapNotify events, use
       XkbSelectEvents with XkbIndicatorMapNotifyMask.

       To  receive  events for only specific indicators, use XkbSelectEventDe-
       tails.  Set the event_type parameter to XkbIndicatorStateNotify or  Xk-
       bIndicatorMapNotify,   and   set	  both	the  bits_to_change  and  val-
       ues_for_bits detail parameters to a mask	where each bit	specifies  one
       indicator,  turning on those bits that specify the indicators for which
       you want	to receive events.

       xkb_type	is either  XkbIndicatorStateNotify  or	XkbIndicatorMapNotify,
       depending  on  whether  the  event is a kbIndicatorStateNotify event or
       kbIndicatorMapNotify event.

       The changed parameter is	a mask that is the bitwise inclusive OR	of the
       indicators  that	have changed. If the event is of type XkbIndicatorMap-
       Notify, changed reports the maps	that changed. If the event is of  type
       XkbIndicatorStateNotify,	 changed  reports  the	indicators  that  have
       changed state.  state is	a mask that specifies the current state	of all
       indicators,  whether  they  have	 changed  or  not, for both XkbIndica-
       torStateNotify and IndicatorMapNotify events.

	    typedef struct _XkbIndicatorChanges	{
		unsigned int	      state_changes;
		unsigned int	       map_changes;

       Both types of indicator events use the same structure:

	   typedef struct _XkbIndicatorNotify {
	       int	      type;	   /* Xkb extension base event code */
	       unsigned	long  serial;	   /* X	server serial number for event */
	       Bool	      send_event;  /* True => synthetically generated */
	       Display *      display;	   /* server connection	where event generated */
	       Time	      time;	   /* server time when event generated */
	       int	      xkb_type;	   /* specifies	state or map notify */
	       int	      device;	   /* Xkb device ID, will not be XkbUseCoreKbd*/
	       unsigned	int   changed;	   /* mask of indicators with new state	or map */
	       unsigned	int   state;	   /* current state of all indicators */
	   } XkbIndicatorNotifyEvent;
