minput_config_variable - Configure the value of an input method variable.
, MSymbol variable
Configure the value of an input method variable. The minput_config_variable()
function assigns value to the variable variable of the input method specified
by language and name .
If value is a non-empty plist, it must be a plist of one element whose key is
or Mtext ,
and the value is of the
corresponding type. That value is assigned to the variable.
If value is an empty plist, any configuration and customization of the variable
are canceled, and the default value is assigned to the variable.
If value is NULL, the configuration of the variable is canceled, and the
original value (what saved in per-user customization file, or the default
value) is assigned to the variable.
In the latter two cases, variable can be Mnil to make all the variables of the
input method the target of the operation.
If name is Mnil ,
this function configures the value of global variable,
not that of a specific input method.
The configuration takes effect for input methods opened or re-opened later in
the current session. To make the configuration take effect for the future
session, it must be saved in a per-user customization file by the function
If the operation was successful, this function returns 0, otherwise returns -1.
The operation fails in these cases:
- value is not in a valid form, the type does not
match the definition, or the value is our of range.
- variable is not available for the input method.
- language and name do not specify an existing input
