XkbSetAutoRepeatRate(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS	       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate(3)

       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate  -	Sets  the attributes of	the RepeatKeys control
       for a keyboard device

       Bool XkbSetAutoRepeatRate (Display *display, unsigned int  device_spec,
	      unsigned int timeout, unsigned int interval);

       - display
	      connection to X server

       - device_spec
	      device to	configure, or XkbUseCoreKbd

       - timeout
	      initial delay, ms

       - interval
	      delay between repeats, 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.

       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate sends a request to the X server to	configure  the
       AutoRepeat  control  attributes	to the values specified	in timeout and

       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate does not wait for a	 reply;	 it  normally  returns
       True. Specifying	a zero value for either	timeout	or interval causes the
       server to generate a BadValue protocol error. If	a  compatible  version
       of  the	Xkb  extension	is  not	available in the server, XkbSetAutoRe-
       peatRate	returns	False.

       True	      The XkbSetAutoRepeatRate function	returns	True normally.

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

       BadValue	      An argument is out of range

X Version 11			 libX11	1.6.12	       XkbSetAutoRepeatRate(3)
