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.
