Xfc::Gdk::KeymapKey::KeymapKey ( unsigned int  keycode,

Member Function Documentation

int Xfc::Gdk::KeymapKey::level (  )  const

Returns the level.

The level indicates which symbol on the key will be used, in a vertical direction.

void Xfc::Gdk::KeymapKey::set ( unsigned int  keycode,
int  group,
int  level 
)

Sets the keycode, group and level for the key.

Parameters:
keycode The hardware keycode; this is an identifying number for a physical key.
group Indicates movement in a horizontal direction.
level Indicates which symbol on the key will be used, in a vertical direction.
On a standard US keyboard, the key with the number "1" on it also has the exclamation point ("!") character on it. The level indicates whether to use the "1" or the "!" symbol. The letter keys are considered to have a lowercase letter at level 0, and an uppercase letter at level 1, though only the uppercase letter is printed.

Usually groups are used for two different languages. In group 0, a key might have two English characters, and in group 1 it might have two Hebrew characters. The Hebrew characters will be printed on the key next to the English characters.
