NAME

Gtk2::Gdk::Keymap  

HIERARCHY

  Glib::Object
  +----Gtk2::Gdk::Keymap

 

METHODS

 

keymap = Gtk2::Gdk::Keymap->get_default

 

direction = $keymap->get_direction

 

({ key1, keyval1 }, { ... }) = $keymap->get_entries_for_keycode (hardware_keycode)

* $hardware_keycode (integer)

Returns a list of hash references, each with two keys: ``key'' pointing to a GdkKeymapKey and ``keyval'' pointing to the corresponding key value.

 

keys = $keymap->get_entries_for_keyval (keyval)

* $keyval (integer)

Returns a list of GdkKeymapKeys.

Obtains a list of keycode/group/level combinations that will generate $keyval. Groups and levels are two kinds of keyboard mode; in general, the level determines whether the top or bottom symbol on a key is used, and the group determines whether the left or right symbol is used. On US keyboards, the shift key changes the keyboard level, and there are no groups. A group switch key might convert a keyboard between Hebrew to English modes, for example. Gtk2::Gdk::Event::Key contains a group field that indicates the active keyboard group. The level is computed from the modifier mask.

 

keymap = Gtk2::Gdk::Keymap->get_for_display ($display)

* $display (Gtk2::Gdk::Display)

Since: gtk+ 2.2

 

integer = $keymap->lookup_key ($key)

* $key (scalar)
 

(keyval, effective_group, level, consumed_modifiers) = $keymap->translate_keyboard_state (hardware_keycode, state, group)

* $hardware_keycode (integer)
* $state (Gtk2::Gdk::ModifierType)
* $group (integer)
