XkbResizeKeySyms(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS		   XkbResizeKeySyms(3)

NAME
       XkbResizeKeySyms	- Change the number of symbols bound to	a key

SYNOPSIS
       KeySym *	XkbResizeKeySyms (XkbDescRec *xkb, int key, int	needed);

ARGUMENTS
       - xkb  keyboard description to be changed

       - key  keycode for key to modify

       - needed
	      new number of keysyms required for key

DESCRIPTION
       XkbResizeKeySyms	 reserves  the space needed for	needed keysyms and re-
       turns a pointer to the beginning	 of  the  new  array  that  holds  the
       keysyms.	 It  adjusts the offset	field of the key_sym_map entry for the
       key if necessary	and can	also change the	syms, num_syms,	and  size_syms
       fields  of  xkb-_map  if	 it is necessary to reallocate the syms	array.
       XkbResizeKeySyms	does not modify	either the width or number  of	groups
       associated with the key.

       If  needed  is  greater than the	current	number of keysyms for the key,
       XkbResizeKeySyms	initializes all	new keysyms in the array to NoSymbol.

       Because the number of symbols needed by a key is	normally  computed  as
       width  *	 number	of groups, and XkbResizeKeySyms	does not modify	either
       the width or number of groups for the key, a  discrepancy  exists  upon
       return  from  XkbResizeKeySyms  between	the  space  allocated  for the
       keysyms and the number required.	The unused entries in the list of sym-
       bols returned by	XkbResizeKeySyms are not preserved across future calls
       to any of the map editing functions, so you must	update the key	symbol
       mapping	(which updates the width and number of groups for the key) be-
       fore calling another allocator function.	A call to  XkbChangeTypesOfKey
       will update the mapping.

       If  any	allocation  errors  occur while	resizing the number of symbols
       bound to	the key, XkbResizeKeySyms returns NULL.

NOTES
       A change	to the number of symbols bound to a key	should be  accompanied
       by  a  change  in the number of actions bound to	a key. Refer to	XkbRe-
       sizeKeyActions for more information on changing the number  of  actions
       bound to	a key.
