XkbKeyNumSyms(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS		      XkbKeyNumSyms(3)

       XkbKeyNumSyms  -	Returns	the total number of keysyms for	the key	corre-
       sponding	to keycode

       int XkbKeyNumSyms (XkbDescPtr xkb, KeyCode keycode);

       - xkb  Xkb description of interest

       - keycode
	      keycode of interest

       The key width and number	of groups associated with a key	 are  used  to
       form a small two-dimensional array of KeySyms for a key.	This array may
       be different sizes for different	keys. The array	for a  single  key  is
       stored  as a linear list, in row-major order. The arrays	for all	of the
       keys are	stored in the syms field of the	client map. There is  one  row
       for each	group associated with a	key and	one column for each level. The
       index corresponding to a	given group and	shift level is computed	as:

	    idx	= group_index *	key_width + shift_level

       The offset field	of the key_sym_map entry for a key is used  to	access
       the beginning of	the array.

       XkbKeyNumSyms  returns  the  total number of keysyms for	the key	corre-
       sponding	to keycode.
