XI2 events must be selected using XISelectEvents\&.

.nf
XISelectEvents sets the event mask for this client on win\&.
Further events are only reported to this client if the event
type matches the selected event mask\&. The masks overrides the
previously selected event mask for the given device\&.
.fi
.if n \{\

.\}
.sp
.if n \{\

.\}
.nf
If deviceid is a valid device, the event mask is selected only
for this device\&. If deviceid is XIAllDevices or
XIAllMasterDevices, the event mask is selected for all devices
or all master devices, respectively\&. The effective event mask
is the bit\-wise OR of the XIAllDevices, XIAllMasterDevices and
the respective device\'s event mask\&.
.fi

.sp
.if n \{\
.RS 4
.\}
.nf
The mask_len specifies the length of mask in bytes\&. mask is a
binary mask in the form of (1 << event type)\&. deviceid must be
either a device or XIAllDevices or XIAllMasterDevices\&. A client
may submit several masks with the same deviceid in one request
but only the last mask will be effective\&.

XISelectEvents can generate a BadValue, a BadDevice, and a
BadWindow error\&.

.if n \{\

.nf
XIGetSelectedEvents returns the events selected by this client on the given
window\&. If no events were selected on this window, XIGetSelectedEvents
returns NULL and num_masks_return is set to 0\&. If an internal error occurs,
XIGetSelectedEvents returns NULL and num_masks_return is set to \-1\&.
Otherwise, XIGetSelectedEvent returns the selected event masks for all
devices including the masks for XIAllDevices and XIAllMasterDevices
