XkbGetNamedIndicator(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS	       XkbGetNamedIndicator(3)

       XkbGetNamedIndicator  - Look up the indicator map and other information
       for an indicator	by name

       Bool XkbGetNamedIndicator (Display *dpy,	unsigned  int  dev_spec,  Atom
	      name,   int   *ndx_rtrn,	Bool  *state_rtrn,  XkbIndicatorMapPtr
	      map_rtrn,	Bool *real_rtrn);

       - dpy  connection to the	X server

       - dev_spec
	      keyboard device ID, or XkbUseCoreKbd

       - name name of the indicator to be retrieved

       - ndx_rtrn
	      backfilled with the index	of the retrieved indicator

       - state_rtrn
	      backfilled with the current state	of the retrieved indicator

       - map_rtrn
	       backfilled with the mapping for the retrieved indicator

       - real_rtrn
	      backfilled with True if the named	indicator is real (physical)

       Xkb also	allows applications  to	 refer	to  indicators	by  name.  Use
       XkbGetNames to get the indicator	names. Using names eliminates the need
       for hard-coding bitmask values for particular keyboards.	 For  example,
       instead	of  using vendor-specific constants such as WSKBLed_ScrollLock
       mask on Digital workstations or XLED_SCROLL_LOCK	on  Sun	 workstations,
       you  can	instead	use XkbGetNamedIndicator to look up information	on the
       indicator named "Scroll Lock."

       If the device specified by device_spec has  an  indicator  named	 name,
       XkbGetNamedIndicator returns True and populates the rest	of the parame-
       ters with information about the indicator. Otherwise,  XkbGetNamedIndi-
       cator returns False.

       The ndx_rtrn field returns the zero-based index of the named indicator.
       This index is the bit  position	to  use	 in  any  function  call  that
       requires	 a  mask  of  indicator	bits, as well as the indicator's index
       into the	XkbIndicatorRec	array of indicator maps.   state_rtrn  returns
       the  current  state  of	the  named indicator (True = on, False = off).
       map_rtrn	returns	the indicator map for the named	 indicator.  In	 addi-
       tion,  if  the  indicator  is  mapped  to a physical LED, the real_rtrn
       parameter is set	to True.

       Each of the " _rtrn " arguments is optional; you	can pass NULL for  any
       unneeded	" _rtrn	" arguments.

       True	      The  XkbGetNamedIndicator	 function  returns True	if the
		      device specified by device_spec has an  indicator	 named

       False	      The  XkbGetNamedIndicator	 function returns False	if the
		      device specified by device_spec does not have an indica-
		      tor named	name.


X Version 11			 libX11	1.6.5	       XkbGetNamedIndicator(3)
