NAME

       XFilterEvent - filter X events for an input method

SYNTAX

       Bool XFilterEvent(XEvent *event, Window w);

ARGUMENTS

       event     Specifies the event to filter.

       w         Specifies the window for which the filter is to be applied.

DESCRIPTION

       If the window argument is None, XFilterEvent applies the filter to the window specified in
       the XEvent structure.  The window argument is provided so that layers above Xlib that do
       event redirection can indicate to which window an event has been redirected.

       If XFilterEvent returns True, then some input method has filtered the event, and the
       client should discard the event.  If XFilterEvent returns False, then the client should
       continue processing the event.

       If a grab has occurred in the client and XFilterEvent returns True, the client should
       ungrab the keyboard.
