                           # vertically and horizontally

    See Also: Bevel flags for further details.

     BalloonCloseDelay number

    Specifies the period in milliseconds to delay the disappearance of the balloon when leaving  window with the mouse.

     BalloonDelay number

    Specifies the period in milliseconds to delay the appearance of theballoon.

     BalloonStyle MyStyle

     MyStyle to be used to draw balloon. Note that balloons could be shaped (BackPixmap 125 and 126).

     BalloonTextPaddingX size

    width of the border around the  text in balloons.

     BalloonTextPaddingY size

    height of the border around the  text in balloons.

     BalloonXOffset offset

    Specifies the horizontal offset (in pixels) to use when displaying balloons.

     BalloonYOffset offset

    The balloon  window is positioned to be horizontally centered against the application  window it is describing. The vertical position may be  set as an offset. Negative offsets of -N are placed N pixels above the pager  window , positive offsets of +N are placed N pixels below.  Defaults to +2.


    Turns on the balloon feature. A "balloon" is displayed showing the name of the  window the pointer is resting on in the Pager. Currently only the  window 's icon name is shown. Note that balloons are not shown for the iconified pager. The balloon  background and  text are configured with the  MyStyle "*PagerBalloon".

    See Also:  MyStyle definition for details.


    Tells afterstep how many columns of desks to use when laying out the pager  window .  Set to 1 for vertical Pager and define PagerRows.

     Decoration param1[,param2[,...]]

    Allows you to decorate your pager to your liking. The following parameters can be specified :  NoDeskLabel ,  NoPageSeparator ,  NoSelection ,  SelectionColor ,  GridColor ,  DeskBorderWidth ,  DeskBorderColor ,  LabelBelowDesk ,  HideInactiveLabels ,  VerticalLabel .

    If specified, will not display  background image, use this with xearth or xfishtank.

    Please note that this is deprecated, use  DontDrawBackground (Look option) instead.


    Completely or partially specifies the pager  window location and geometry, in standard X11 notation. In order to maintain an undistorted aspect ratio, you might want to leave out either the width or height dimension of the geometry specification.


    Specifies a size (optional) and location (optional) for the pager's icon  window . Since there is no easy way for Pager to determine the height of the icon's label, you will have to make an allowance for the icon label height when using negative y-coordinates in the icon location specification (used to specify a location relative to the bottom instead of the top of the screen).


    Defines how border around Pager desk representation of the inactive desk(s) should be drawn.

    See Also: Bevel flags for further details.


    Assigns the  text label to desk desk in the pager  window . Useful for assigning symbolic names to desktops


    Styles for different Pager properties are called from the file "pager", and the associated  MyStyle definitions are located in a selected Look file. Fonts, foreground and  background colors, gradients, pixmaps, and transparencies can be specified for Pager's components.

    See Also: MyStyle definition for further details.


    FIXME:  add proper description here.


    Tells afterstep how many rows of desks to use when laying out the pager  window .  Set to 1 for horizontal Pager and define PagerColumns.

     ShadeButton "unpressed_image" ["pressed_image"]

    You should be able to " shade " row or column of desks by pressing special  Shade button on desk's title. Define images to be used for it with this option. If no images are defined - then there will be no button and feature will be disabled.


    Specifies a font to use to label the  window names in the pager. It overrides font specified in Focused/Unfocused/Sticky  window style in look file. It also displays  text on  background  color - which can be usefull  if  BackPixmap is specified in  window style.  Window labels seem to be fairly useless for desktop scales of 32 or greater.

    Specifies that icons should  stick to the screen's glass and follow it from desk/view to desk/view.

     Style desk style

    Sets the style to be used for the desk desk representation in the Pager. Where style can be the name of any style definition in the look file, and desk is a number coresponding to the desktop number: 0,1,2,3,N....  Use it  if you want to specify a different style for Pager  background other than the default; which is the scaled down *PagerDesktopImage.
