XkbGetBounceKeysDelay(3)	 XKB FUNCTIONS	      XkbGetBounceKeysDelay(3)

       XkbGetBounceKeysDelay - Queries the current BounceKeys delay for	a key-
       board device.

       Bool XkbGetBounceKeysDelay (Display *display, unsigned int device_spec,
	      unsigned int *delay_rtrn);

       - display
	      connection to X server

       - device_spec
	      device ID, or XkbUseCoreKbd

       - delay_rtrn
	      backfilled with bounce keys delay, ms

       The  server can generate	XkbAccessXNotify events	for some of the	global
       keyboard	controls.  The detail field describes what AccessX event  just
       occurred	and can	be any of the values in	Table 1.

		       Table 1 AccessXNotify Events
       detail		   Reason
       XkbAXN_SKPress	   A  key was pressed when SlowKeys was	en-
       XkbAXN_SKAccept	   A key was accepted (held longer than	the
			   SlowKeys delay).
       XkbAXN_SKRelease	   An accepted SlowKeys	key was	released.
       XkbAXN_SKReject	   A  key was rejected (released before	the
			   SlowKeys delay expired).
       XkbAXN_BKAccept	   A key was accepted by BounceKeys.
       XkbAXN_BKReject	   A key was rejected (pressed	before	the
			   BounceKeys delay expired).
       XkbAXN_AXKWarning   AccessXKeys	is  about  to  turn  on/off
			   StickyKeys or BounceKeys.

       The keycode field reports the keycode of	the key	for  which  the	 event
       occurred. If the	action is related to SlowKeys, the slowKeysDelay field
       contains	the current SlowKeys acceptance	delay. If the  action  is  re-
       lated  to  BounceKeys,  the  debounceDelay  field  contains the current
       BounceKeys debounce delay.

       Selecting for AccessX Events

       To receive XkbAccessXNotify events under	all possible  conditions,  use
       XkbSelectEvents and pass	XkbAccesXNotifyMask in both bits_to_change and

       To receive XkbStateNotify events	only  under  certain  conditions,  use
       XkbSelectEventDetails  using  XkbAccessXNotify  as  the	event_type and
       specifying  the	desired	 state	changes	 in  bits_to_change  and  val-
       ues_for_bits using mask bits from Table 2.

			 Table 2 AccessXNotify Event Details
       XkbAccessXNotify	Event Details	Value	 Circumstances
       XkbAXN_SKPressMask		(1<<0)	 Slow  key  press  notification
       XkbAXN_SKAcceptMask		(1<<1)	 Slow key  accept  notification
       XkbAXN_SKRejectMask		(1<<2)	 Slow  key  reject notification
       XkbAXN_SKReleaseMask		(1<<3)	 Slow key release  notification
       XkbAXN_BKAcceptMask		(1<<4)	 Bounce	key accept notification
       XkbAXN_BKRejectMask		(1<<5)	 Bounce	key reject notification
       XkbAXN_AXKWarningMask		(1<<6)	 AccessX  warning  notification
       XkbAllAccessXEventsMask		(0x7f)	 All AccessX features notifica-
						 tions wanted

       Some  users  may	 accidentally  "bounce"	on a key when they release it.
       They press it once, then	accidentally press it again after they release
       it. The BounceKeys control temporarily disables a key after it has been
       pressed,	effectively "debouncing" the keyboard. The period of time  the
       key  is disabled	after it is released is	known as the BounceKeys	delay.
       BounceKeys is a boolean control.

       When the	BounceKeys control is active, the server reports acceptance or
       rejection  of  any  key to interested clients by	sending	an appropriate
       AccessXNotify event (see	STRUCTURES).

       XkbGetBounceKeysDelay requests the attributes of	the BounceKeys control
       from  the  server, waits	for a reply, and backfills delay_rtrn with the
       BounceKeys delay	attribute.  XkbGetBounceKeysDelay returns True if suc-
       cessful;	 if a compatible version of the	Xkb extension is not available
       in the server XkbGetSlowKeysDelay returns False.

       True	      The XkbGetBounceKeysDelay	function returns True when  it
		      successfully  requests  the attributes of	the BounceKeys
		      control from the server, waits for a  reply,  and	 back-
		      fills delay_rtrn with the	BounceKeys delay attribute.

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

       The structure for the XkbAccessXNotify event type is as follows:

       typedef struct {
	   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;	  /* XkbAccessXNotify */
	   int		  device;	  /* Xkb device	ID, will not be	XkbUseCoreKbd
	   int		  detail;	  /* XkbAXN_* */
	   KeyCode	  keycode;	  /* key of event */
	   int		  slowKeysDelay;  /* current SlowKeys delay */
	   int		  debounceDelay;  /* current debounce delay */
       } XkbAccessXNotifyEvent;
