       DMXGetInputAttributes - determine input device attributes

       #include <X11/extensions/dmxext.h>

       Bool DMXGetInputAttributes(Display *dpy,
				  int id,
				  DMXInputAttributes *attr);

       DMXGetInputAttributes()	returns	 information  about  the  input device
       specified with id.   This  information  cannot  be  obtained  from  the
       XListInputDeivices(3)  call.   id  is  the  same	 as  that  used by the
       XListInputDevices(3) call, and must be in the range 0 to one less  than
       the value returned by DMXGetInputCount(3), inclusive.

       The DMXInputAttributes structure is:

       typedef struct {
	   DMXInputEnum inputType;
	   int		physicalScreen;
	   int		physicalId;
	   Bool		isCore;
	   Bool		sendsCore;
	   const char	*name;
	   Bool		detached;
       } DMXInputAttributes;

       The  value  of inputType will always be valid, and will have one of the
       following values, depending on the type of input:  DMXLocalInputType  ,
       DMXConsoleInputType , or DMXBackendInputType .

       For local devices, all other fields returned, except isCore  and	 send‐
       sCore , are invalid.

       For console devices, physicalScreen  and	 physicalID will  be  invalid,
       and name will return the name of the X server on which the console win‐
       dow is displayed.

       For back-end devices, physicalScreen will identify the back-end display
       and  can	 be used as an argument to DMXGetScreenAttributes(3) to obtain
       more information; physicalId will be the XInput device id on the	 back-
       end  X  server; and name will be invalid (since it does not provide any
       additional information that cannot  be  obtained	 with  DMXGetScreenAt‐

       If  isCore  is  True,  then  this device is active as a true core input
       device and will send core events.  If  sendsCore	 is  True,  then  this
       device  is an XInput extension device, but sends core events instead of
       extension events.  This behavior is different from that of  XFree86  or
       Xorg, where XInput extension devices may send both extension events and
       core events.

       If detached is True, then this device  has  been	 detached  and	is  no
       longer producing input events.  The device may be reattached using DMX‐

       DMXGetInputAttributes() returns True unless there is a protocol error.

       DMXGetInputAttributes() can generate BadValue (if the value  of	id  is
       out of range).
