XkbGetIndicatorChanges(3)	 XKB FUNCTIONS	     XkbGetIndicatorChanges(3)

       XkbGetIndicatorChanges  - Updates a local copy of the keyboard descrip-
       tion with the actual values of one or more calls	 to  XkbNoteIndicator-

       Status XkbGetIndicatorChanges (Display *dpy, XkbDescPtr xkb, XkbIndica-
	      torChangesPtr changes, unsigned int state);

       - dpy  connection to the	X server

       - xkb  keyboard description to hold the new values

       - changes
	      indicator	maps/state to be obtained from the server

       - state
	      backfilled with the state	of the indicators

       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.

       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;

       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.

       When  your client application receives either a XkbIndicatorStateNotify
       event or	XkbIndicatorMapNotify event, you can note  the	changes	 in  a
       changes structure by calling XkbNoteIndicatorChanges.

       XkbGetIndicatorChanges  examines	 the changes parameter,	pulls over the
       necessary information from the server, and copies the results into  the
       xkb  keyboard  description.  If	any  bits are set in the state_changes
       field of	changes, XkbGetIndicatorChanges	also places the	state of those
       indicators  in  state.	If  the	 indicators  field of xkb is NULL, Xk-
       bGetIndicatorChanges allocates and initializes it. To free the  indica-
       tors field, use XkbFreeIndicators.

       BadAlloc	      Unable to	allocate storage

		      Invalid reply from server

       BadMatch	      A	 compatible  version  of  Xkb was not available	in the
		      server or	an argument has	correct	type and range,	but is
		      otherwise	invalid
