XkbAllocGeometry(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS		   XkbAllocGeometry(3)

NAME
       XkbAllocGeometry	- Allocate an entire geometry

SYNOPSIS
       Status XkbAllocGeometry (XkbDescPtr xkb,	XkbGeometrySizesPtr sizes);

ARGUMENTS
       - xkb  keyboard description for which geometry is to be allocated

       - sizes
	      initial sizes for	all geometry components

DESCRIPTION
       Xkb  provides  a	number of functions to allocate	and free subcomponents
       of a keyboard geometry. Use these functions to create  or  modify  key-
       board  geometries.  Note	that these functions merely allocate space for
       the new element(s), and it is up	to you to fill in the  values  explic-
       itly  in	 your code. These allocation functions increase	sz_* but never
       touch num_* (unless there is an allocation failure, in which case  they
       reset  both  sz_* and num_* to zero). These functions return Success if
       they succeed, BadAlloc if they are not able to allocate space, or  Bad-
       Value if	a parameter is not as expected.

       XkbAllocGeometry	 allocates a keyboard geometry and adds	it to the key-
       board description specified by xkb.  The	keyboard description should be
       obtained	 via  the  XkbGetKeyboard  or  XkbAllocKeyboard	functions. The
       sizes parameter specifies the number of elements	to be reserved for the
       subcomponents  of  the keyboard geometry	and can	be zero	or more. These
       subcomponents include the properties,  colors,  shapes,	sections,  and
       doodads.

       To free an entire geometry, use XkbFreeGeometry.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAlloc	      Unable to	allocate storage

       BadValue	      An argument is out of range
