Declaration [src]

gdk_keyboard_grab (
  GdkWindow* window,
  gboolean owner_events,
  guint32 time_

Description [src]

Grabs the keyboard so that all events are passed to this application until the keyboard is ungrabbed with gdk_keyboard_ungrab(). This overrides any previous keyboard grab by this client.

If you set up anything at the time you take the grab that needs to be cleaned up when the grab ends, you should handle the GdkEventGrabBroken events that are emitted when the grab ends unvoluntarily.

Deprecated since: 3.0

Use gdk_device_grab() instead.



Type: GdkWindow

The GdkWindow which will own the grab (the grab window).

The data is owned by the caller of the function.

Type: gboolean

If FALSE then all keyboard events are reported with respect to window. If TRUE then keyboard events for this application are reported as normal, but keyboard events outside this application are reported with respect to window. Both key press and key release events are always reported, independant of the event mask set by the application.


Type: guint32

A timestamp from a GdkEvent, or GDK_CURRENT_TIME if no timestamp is available.

Return value

Type: GdkGrabStatus

GDK_GRAB_SUCCESS if the grab was successful.
