XkbSARedirectSetVModsMask(3)     XKB FUNCTIONS    XkbSARedirectSetVModsMask(3)



NAME
       XkbSARedirectSetVModsMask - Sets the vmods_mask0 and vmods_mask1 fields of act from vm

SYNOPSIS
       void XkbSARedirectSetVModsMask (XkbRedirectKeyAction act, unsigned int vm);

ARGUMENTS
       - act  action in which to set vmods

       - vm   new value for virtual modifier mask

DESCRIPTION
       Actions associated with the XkbRedirectKeyAction structure generate KeyPress and KeyRelease events containing a
       keycode different from the key that was pressed or released.

       The type field for the XkbRedirectKeyAction structure should always be XkbSA_RedirectKey.  Key presses cause  a
       KeyPress event for the key specified by the new_key field instead of the actual key. The state reported in this
       event reports the current effective modifiers changed as follows: any real modifiers selected by the  mods_mask
       field  are  set  to corresponding values from the mods field. Any real modifiers bound to the virtual modifiers
       specified by the vmods_mask0 and vmods_mask1 fields are either set or cleared, depending on  the  corresponding
       values in the vmods0 and vmods1 fields. If the real and virtual modifier definitions specify conflicting values
       for a single modifier, the real modifier definition has priority.

       Key releases cause a KeyRelease event for the key specified by the new_key field instead of the actual key. The
       state  for  this  event  consists  of  the  effective keyboard modifiers at the time of the release, changed as
       described previously.

       The XkbSA_RedirectKey action normally redirects to another key on the same device as the key  that  caused  the
       event,  unless that device does not belong to the input extension KeyClass, in which case this action causes an
       event on the core keyboard device. (The input extension categorizes devices by breaking them into classes. Key-
       boards, and other input devices with keys, are classified as KeyClass devices by the input extension.)

       The  vmods_mask0 and vmods_mask1 fields actually represent one vmods_mask value. Xkb provides macros to convert
       between the two formats.

       XkbSARedirectSetVModsMask sets the vmods_mask0 and vmods_mask1 fields of act from vm.
