NAME

FvwmWinList - the FVWM window list module  

SYNOPSIS

FvwmWinList is spawned by fvwm, so no command line invocation will work.

 

DESCRIPTION

The FvwmWinList module provides a widow list made up of buttons, each corresponding to a window that FVWM is managing. Clicking on the buttons with any of the three mouse buttons will either do a default action or can be user configured. Like the other modules, FvwmWinList only works when fvwm is used as the window manager.

 

COPYRIGHTS

The FvwmWinList module is the original work of Mike Finger.

Copyright 1994, Mike Finger. The author makes no guarantees or warranties of any kind about the use of this module. Use this modules at your own risk. You may freely use this module or any portion of it for any purpose as long as the copyright is kept intact.

 

INITIALIZATION

During initialization, FvwmWinList will scan the same configuration file that FVWM used during startup to find the options that pertain to it. These options are discussed in a later section.

 

INVOCATION

FvwmWinList can be invoked by fvwm during initialization by inserting the line 'Module FvwmWinList' in the .fvwmrc file.

FvwmWinList can also be bound to a keystroke, mouse button, or menu option to be invoked later, in this case using 'Transient' as an argument will cause FvwmWinList to resemble the built in window list.

FvwmWinList must reside in a directory that is listed in the ModulePath option of FVWM for it to be executed by FVWM.

 

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

The following options can be placed in the .fvwmrc file

*FvwmWinListGeometry {+-}<X>x{+-}<Y>
Specifies the location and gravity of the FvwmWinList window. At the current time, size is not supported and FvwmWinList will resize itself as buttons are added. If the NoAnchor option is not specified then the windows gravity corner will be anchored, and the window will grow in the opposite direction. (i.e. If the geometry is specified -5-5, that is SoutEastGravity. This will cause the window to draw up and to the left as windows are added)

*FvwmWinListFont font
Specifies the font to be used for labeling the buttons.

*FvwmWinListFore color
Specifies the color to use for the button names.

*FvwmWinListBack color
Specifies the color for the buttons.

*FvwmWinListUseSkipList
Tells FvwmWinList to not show the windows that are listed on a WindowListSkip line if the configuration file.

*FvwmWinListNoAnchor
By default, FvwmWinList will anchor the gravity corner so the window will grow in the opposite direction. This undoes that option.

*FvwmWinListUseIconNames
Tells FvwmWinList to use the icon name of the window instead of the full window name. This is useful to keep the width of the window small.

*FvwmWinListAction action response[,reponse...]
Tells FvwmWinList to do response when action is done. The currently supported actions are: Click1, Click2, Click3. The currently supported responses are any fvwm built-in commands, including modules and functions.
