Looking for **PAID** help with calling XSendEvent correctly

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I have a Java program that calls the following code but somehow the
events are not rebroadcasted... from my very limited knowledge of X (I
have known C for years but never used it for GUI work) I highly
suspect I some how got the second arg wrong (it seems that the JAWT
window ID is not the same as the Xorg one)... since this is a high
priority project my client is willing to pay for 1 to 2 hours of
consulting on how to adjust the code to make it work... the final goal
is we want to block all keystrokes not meant for the actual app
(alt-f1:f9, ctl-alt-del, etc.)... namely the client is making a
application to apply standardized tests to distance learning students
and we need to enable a "kiosk" like mode (the user can not break out
the app [or as much as is possible]... the reason is we want to
prevent the test taker of using this as a work around the "closed
book" restriction on a "closed book" test)... I can either have no
event filtering (all events go their intended targets) or filtering
and no forwarding (namely if a invert the test of which process to
terminate on fork(2)).

Note: I tried both InputFocus and PointerFocus for the target win of
the event but that doesn't work nor does key->win.   Also I can handle
all the coding except the actual XLib/XCB calls.
