XButtonEvent(3)			XLIB FUNCTIONS		       XButtonEvent(3)

NAME
       XButtonEvent, XKeyEvent,	XMotionEvent - KeyPress, KeyRelease, Button-
       Press, ButtonRelease, and MotionNotify event structures

STRUCTURES
       The structures for KeyPress, KeyRelease,	ButtonPress, ButtonRelease,
       and MotionNotify	events contain:

       typedef struct {
	       int type;       /* ButtonPress or ButtonRelease */
	       unsigned	long serial;   /* # of last request processed by server	*/
	       Bool send_event;	       /* true if this came from a SendEvent request */
	       Display *display;       /* Display the event was	read from */
	       Window window;  /* ``event'' window it is reported relative to */
	       Window root;    /* root window that the event occurred on */
	       Window subwindow;       /* child	window */
	       Time time;      /* milliseconds */
	       int x, y;       /* pointer x, y coordinates in event window */
	       int x_root, y_root;     /* coordinates relative to root */
	       unsigned	int state;     /* key or button	mask */
	       unsigned	int button;    /* detail */
	       Bool same_screen;       /* same screen flag */
       } XButtonEvent;
       typedef XButtonEvent XButtonPressedEvent;
       typedef XButtonEvent XButtonReleasedEvent;

       typedef struct {
	       int type;       /* KeyPress or KeyRelease */
	       unsigned	long serial;   /* # of last request processed by server	*/
	       Bool send_event;	       /* true if this came from a SendEvent request */
	       Display *display;       /* Display the event was	read from */
	       Window window;  /* ``event'' window it is reported relative to */
	       Window root;    /* root window that the event occurred on */
	       Window subwindow;       /* child	window */
	       Time time;      /* milliseconds */
	       int x, y;       /* pointer x, y coordinates in event window */
	       int x_root, y_root;     /* coordinates relative to root */
	       unsigned	int state;     /* key or button	mask */
	       unsigned	int keycode;   /* detail */
	       Bool same_screen;       /* same screen flag */
       } XKeyEvent;
       typedef XKeyEvent XKeyPressedEvent;
       typedef XKeyEvent XKeyReleasedEvent;

       typedef struct {
	       int type;       /* MotionNotify */
	       unsigned	long serial;   /* # of last request processed by server	*/
	       Bool send_event;	       /* true if this came from a SendEvent request */
	       Display *display;       /* Display the event was	read from */
	       Window window;  /* ``event'' window reported relative to	*/
	       Window root;    /* root window that the event occurred on */
	       Window subwindow;       /* child	window */
	       Time time;      /* milliseconds */
	       int x, y;       /* pointer x, y coordinates in event window */
	       int x_root, y_root;     /* coordinates relative to root */
	       unsigned	int state;     /* key or button	mask */
	       char is_hint;   /* detail */
	       Bool same_screen;       /* same screen flag */
       } XMotionEvent;
       typedef XMotionEvent XPointerMovedEvent;

       When you	receive	these events, their structure members are set as fol-
       lows.

       The type	member is set to the event type	constant name that uniquely
       identifies it.  For example, when the X server reports a	GraphicsExpose
       event to	a client application, it sends an XGraphicsExposeEvent struc-
       ture with the type member set to	GraphicsExpose.	 The display member is
       set to a	pointer	to the display the event was read on.  The send_event
       member is set to	True if	the event came from a SendEvent	protocol re-
       quest.  The serial member is set	from the serial	number reported	in the
       protocol	but expanded from the 16-bit least-significant bits to a full
       32-bit value.  The window member	is set to the window that is most use-
       ful to toolkit dispatchers.

       These structures	have the following common members: window, root, sub-
       window, time, x,	y, x_root, y_root, state, and same_screen.  The	window
       member is set to	the window on which the	event was generated and	is re-
       ferred to as the	event window.  As long as the conditions previously
       discussed are met, this is the window used by the X server to report
       the event.  The root member is set to the source	window's root window.
       The x_root and y_root members are set to	the pointer's coordinates rel-
       ative to	the root window's origin at the	time of	the event.

       The same_screen member is set to	indicate whether the event window is
       on the same screen as the root window and can be	either True or False.
       If True,	the event and root windows are on the same screen.  If False,
       the event and root windows are not on the same screen.

       If the source window is an inferior of the event	window,	the subwindow
       member of the structure is set to the child of the event	window that is
       the source window or the	child of the event window that is an ancestor
       of the source window.  Otherwise, the X server sets the subwindow mem-
       ber to None.  The time member is	set to the time	when the event was
       generated and is	expressed in milliseconds.

       If the event window is on the same screen as the	root window, the x and
       y members are set to the	coordinates relative to	the event window's
       origin.	Otherwise, these members are set to zero.

       The state member	is set to indicate the logical state of	the pointer
       buttons and modifier keys just prior to the event, which	is the bitwise
       inclusive OR of one or more of the button or modifier key masks:	But-
       ton1Mask, Button2Mask, Button3Mask, Button4Mask,	Button5Mask, Shift-
       Mask, LockMask, ControlMask, Mod1Mask, Mod2Mask,	Mod3Mask, Mod4Mask,
       and Mod5Mask.

       Each of these structures	also has a member that indicates the detail.
       For the XKeyPressedEvent	and XKeyReleasedEvent structures, this member
       is called a keycode.  It	is set to a number that	represents a physical
       key on the keyboard.  The keycode is an arbitrary representation	for
       any key on the keyboard (see sections 12.7 and 16.1).

       For the XButtonPressedEvent and XButtonReleasedEvent structures,	this
       member is called	button.	 It represents the pointer button that changed
       state and can be	the Button1, Button2, Button3, Button4,	or Button5
       value.  For the XPointerMovedEvent structure, this member is called
       is_hint.	 It can	be set to NotifyNormal or NotifyHint.
