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

NAME

     XSetPointerMapping, XGetPointerMapping - manipulate pointer
     settings

SYNTAX

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

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

ARGUMENTS

     display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

     map       Specifies the mapping list.

     map_return
               Returns the mapping list.

     nmap      Specifies the number of items in the mapping list.

DESCRIPTION

     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.

DIAGNOSTICS

     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.
