XSetPointerMapping(3X11) XLIB FUNCTIONS  XSetPointerMapping(3X11)


     XSetPointerMapping, XGetPointerMapping - manipulate pointer


     int XSetPointerMapping(Display *display, unsigned char
          map[], int nmap);

     int XGetPointerMapping(Display *display, unsigned char
          map_return[], int nmap);


     display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

     map       Specifies the mapping list.

               Returns the mapping list.

     nmap      Specifies the number of items in the mapping list.


     The XSetPointerMapping function sets the mapping of the
     pointer. If it succeeds, the X server generates a MappingNo-
     tify event, and XSetPointerMapping returns MappingSuccess.
     Element map[i] defines the logical button number for the
     physical button i+1. The length of the list must be the same
     as XGetPointerMapping would return, or a BadValue error
     results. A zero element disables a button, and elements are
     not restricted in value by the number of physical buttons.
     However, no two elements can have the same nonzero value, or
     a BadValue error results. If any of the buttons to be
     altered are logically in the down state, XSetPointerMapping
     returns MappingBusy, and the mapping is not changed.

     XSetPointerMapping can generate a BadValue error.

     The XGetPointerMapping function returns the current mapping
     of the pointer. Pointer buttons are numbered starting from
     one. XGetPointerMapping returns the number of physical but-
     tons actually on the pointer. The nominal mapping for a
     pointer is map[i]=i+1. The nmap argument specifies the
     length of the array where the pointer mapping is returned,
     and only the first nmap elements are returned in map_return.


     BadValue  Some numeric value falls outside the range of
               values accepted by the request. Unless a specific
               range is specified for an argument, the full range
               defined by the argument's type is accepted.  Any
               argument defined as a set of alternatives can gen-
               erate this error.
