map_keyval


Description:

public bool map_keyval (uint keyval, out KeymapKey[] keys)

Obtains a list of keycode/group/level combinations that will generate keyval.

Groups and levels are two kinds of keyboard mode; in general, the level determines whether the top or bottom symbol on a key is used, and the group determines whether the left or right symbol is used.

On US keyboards, the shift key changes the keyboard level, and there are no groups. A group switch key might convert a keyboard between Hebrew to English modes, for example.

GdkEventKey contains a group field that indicates the active keyboard group. The level is computed from the modifier mask.

The returned array should be freed with g_free.

Parameters:
