XkbGetAutoRepeatRate(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS	       XkbGetAutoRepeatRate(3)

       XkbGetAutoRepeatRate  -	Gets  the current attributes of	the RepeatKeys
       control for a keyboard device

       Bool XkbGetAutoRepeatRate (Display *display, unsigned int  device_spec,
	      unsigned int *timeout_rtrn, unsigned int *interval_rtrn);

       - display
	      connection to X server

       - device_spec
	      desired device ID, or XkbUseCoreKbd

       - timeout_rtrn
	      backfilled with initial repeat delay, ms

       - interval_rtrn
	      backfilled with subsequent repeat	delay, ms

       The  core  protocol  allows only	control	over whether or	not the	entire
       keyboard	or individual keys should  auto-repeat	when  held  down.  Re-
       peatKeys	 is  a	boolean	control	that extends this capability by	adding
       control over the	delay until a key begins to repeat  and	 the  rate  at
       which  it repeats. RepeatKeys is	coupled	with the core auto-repeat con-
       trol: when RepeatKeys is	enabled	or disabled, the core  auto-repeat  is
       enabled or disabled and vice versa.

       Auto-repeating  keys are	controlled by two attributes. The first, time-
       out, is the delay after the initial press of an auto-repeating key  and
       the  first  generated  repeat event. The	second,	interval, is the delay
       between all subsequent generated	repeat events.	As  with  all  boolean
       controls, configuring the attributes that determine how the control op-
       erates does not automatically enable the	control	as a whole.

       XkbGetAutoRepeatRate queries the	server for the current values  of  the
       RepeatControls  control	attributes,  backfills timeout_rtrn and	inter-
       val_rtrn	with them, and returns True. If	a compatible  version  of  the
       Xkb  extension  is not available	in the server XkbGetAutoRepeatRate re-
       turns False.

       True	      The XkbGetAutoRepeatRate function	returns	True if	a com-
		      patible version of the Xkb extension is available	in the

       False	      The XkbGetAutoRepeatRate function	 returns  False	 if  a
		      compatible version of the	Xkb extension is not available
		      in the server.

X Version 11			 libX11	1.6.12	       XkbGetAutoRepeatRate(3)
