.nf
XSetDeviceMode( Display *display,
                XDevice *device,
                int mode);
.fi
.sp
.nf
display
       Specifies the connection to the X server\&.
.fi
.sp
.nf
device
       Specifies the device whose mode is to be changed\&.

.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.sp
.if n \{\
.RS 4
.\}
.nf
The XSetDeviceMode request changes the mode of an input device
that is capable of reporting either absolute positional
information or relative motion information\&. Not all input
devices are capable of reporting motion data, and not all are
capable of changing modes from Absolute to Relative\&.
.fi
.if n \{\
.RE

.sp
.if n \{\
.RS 4
.\}
.nf
XSetDeviceMode can generate a BadDevice or BadMode error\&.

.SH "DIAGNOSTICS"
.sp
.if n \{\
.RS 4
.\}
.nf
BadDevice
       An invalid device was specified\&. The specified device
       does not exist or has not been opened by this client via
       XOpenInputDevice\&. This error may also occur if some
       other client has caused the specified device to become
       the X keyboard or X pointer device via the
       XChangeKeyboardDevice or XChangePointerDevice requests\&.
.fi
.if n \{\
.RE
.\}
.sp
.if n \{\
.RS 4
.\}
.nf
BadMatch
       This error may occur if an XSetDeviceMode request is
       made specifying a device that has no valuators and
       reports no axes of motion\&.
.fi
.if n \{\
.RE
.\}
.sp
.if n \{\
.RS 4
.\}
.nf
BadMode
       An invalid mode was specified\&. This error will also be
