NAME

       XkbAllocGeomProps - Allocate geometry properties

SYNOPSIS

       Status XkbAllocGeomProps (XkbGeometryPtr geom, int num_needed);

ARGUMENTS

       - geom _summary_

       - num_needed
              _summary_

DESCRIPTION

       Xkb  provides  a  number  of  functions  to  allocate and free subcomponents of a keyboard
       geometry. Use these functions to create or modify keyboard geometries.   Note  that  these
       functions merely allocate space for the new element(s), and it is up to you to fill in the
       values explicitly in your code. These allocation functions increase sz_* but  never  touch
       num_* (unless there is an allocation failure, in which case they reset both sz_* and num_*
       to zero). These functions return Success if they succeed, BadAlloc if they are not able to
       allocate space, or BadValue if a parameter is not as expected.

       XkbAllocGeomProps allocates space for num_needed properties and adds them to the specified
       geometry geom.   No  initialization  of  the  properties  is  done.  A  geometry  property
       associates  an arbitrary string with an equally arbitrary name. Geometry properties can be
       used to provide hints to programs that display images  of  keyboards,  but  they  are  not
       interpreted by Xkb. No other geometry structures refer to geometry properties.

DIAGNOSTICS

       BadAlloc       Unable to allocate storage

       BadValue       An argument is out of range
