XkbAllocNames(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS		      XkbAllocNames(3)

NAME
       XkbAllocNames - Allocate	symbolic names structures

SYNOPSIS
       Status  XkbAllocNames  (XkbDescPtr xkb, unsigned	int which, int num_rg,
	      int num_key_aliases);

ARGUMENTS
       - xkb  keyboard description for which names are to be allocated

       - which
	      mask of names to be allocated

       - num_rg
	      total number of radio group names	needed

       - num_key_aliases
	      total number of key aliases needed

DESCRIPTION
       Most applications do not	 need  to  directly  allocate  symbolic	 names
       structures.  Do not allocate a names structure directly using malloc or
       Xmalloc if your application changes the number of key aliases or	 radio
       groups  or  constructs  a  symbolic names structure without loading the
       necessary components from the X server. Instead use XkbAllocNames.

       XkbAllocNames can return	BadAlloc, BadMatch, and	BadValue  errors.  The
       which  parameter	 is  the  bitwise inclusive OR of the valid names mask
       bits defined in Table 1.

       XkbIndicatorNamesMask	(1<<8)	   Xkb->names	indicators[*]
       XkbKeyNamesMask		(1<<9)	   Xkb->names	keys[*], num_keys
       XkbKeyAliasesMask	(1<<10)	   Xkb->names	key_aliases[*],	num_key_aliases
       XkbVirtualModNamesMask	(1<<11)	   Xkb->names	vmods[*]
       XkbGroupNamesMask	(1<<12)	   Xkb->names	groups[*]
       XkbRGNamesMask		(1<<13)	   Xkb->names	radio_groups[*], num_rg
       XkbComponentNamesMask	(0x3f)	   Xkb->names	keycodes,
							geometry,
							symbols,
							physical symbols,
							types, and
							compatibility map
       XkbAllNamesMask		(0x3fff)   Xkb->names	all name components

       Do not free symbolic names structures directly  using  free  or	XFree.
       Use XkbFreeNames	instead.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAlloc	      Unable to	allocate storage

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

       BadValue	      An argument is out of range
