Motif 2.1 Programmer's Reference
An input manager function that retrieves a composed string from an input
XmImMbLookupString returns a string composed in the locale associated with
the widget's input method and a KeySym that is currently mapped to the
keycode in a KeyPress event. The KeySym is obtained by using the standard
interpretation of Shift, Lock and Group modifiers as defined in the X Protocol
An XIM will be created, but an XIC will not be created. One of the
functions, XmImSetValues, XmImVaSetValues, or XmImGetXIC, needs to be called
to create an XIC.
widgetSpecifies the ID of the widget registered with the input manager
eventSpecifies the key press event
buffer_returnSpecifies the buffer in which the string is returned
bytes_bufferSpecifies the size of the buffer in bytes
keysym_returnSpecifies a pointer to the KeySym returned if one exists
status_returnSpecifies the status values returned by the function. These status values
are the same as those for the XmbLookupString function. The possible status
XBufferOverflowThe size of the buffer was insufficient to handle the returned string. The
contents of buffer_return and keysym_return are not
modified. The required buffer size is returned as a value of the function. The
client should repeat the call with a larger buffer size to receive the string.
XLookupNoneNo consistent input was composed. The contents of buffer_return
and keysym_return are not modified and the function returns a value
XLookupCharsSome input characters were composed and returned in
buffer_return. The content of keysym_return is not modified.
The function returns the length of the string in bytes.
XLookupKeysymA keysym value was returned instead of a string. The content of
buffer_return is not modified and the function returns a value of 0.
XLookupBothA keysym value and a string were returned. The keysym value may not
necessarily correspond to the string returned. The function returns the length
of the string in bytes.
Return values depend on the status returned by the function. Refer to the
description of status values above.
