Module:WharfAfterStep module for launching or docking applications aka button bar


 Overview  MyStyles

  • CONFIGURATION OPTIONS :

     AlignContents  LeftTopRightBottomHTiledVTiledHScaledVScaledHCenter ,VCenter

    That will force contents of each Wharf's button to be aligned to either side of the button, when  FitContents is not used.

    See Also: Alignment flags for further details.

    Animate

    If specified, the opening and closing of Folders will be animated, rather than simply drawn in one frame.

    AnimateDelay

    Specifies the delay in milliseconds that the animation will pause between each move when opening or closing a folder.

    AnimateMain

    Designates that full-length Wharf withdraws will be animated.

    AnimateSteps

    Specifies the steps a  Folder takes in animating while opening or closing. This translates into the  Folder button moving button-size/steps pixels each step.

    AnimateStepsMain

    Specifies the steps the main Wharf takes in iconification or de-iconification upon mouse button 3 being pressed. This translates into the main Wharf moving <button-size>/steps pixels each step.

    BalloonBorderHilite

    Defines  bevel to be drawn around balloons - replaces the  BorderWidth setting.

    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 the balloon.

     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

    The balloon  window is positioned to be horizontally centered against the Wharf  window it is describing. The horizontal position may be  set as an offset. Negative offsets of -N are placed N pixels left of the Wharf  window , positive offsets of +N are placed N pixels right of the  window .  Defaults to +2.

    BalloonYOffset

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

    Balloons

    Turns on the balloon feature. A "balloon" is displayed showing the name of the button the pointer is resting on in the Wharf. The balloon  background and  text are configured with the  MyStyle "*WharfBalloon". See afterstep(1x) for more information on MyStyles.

     Bevel  None |[ LeftTopRightBottomExtraNoOutline ]

    Determines exact size and shape of the 3D  bevel drawn around each button. This option is somewhat synonymous to  NoBorder . If  NoBorder is encountered after  Bevel - then it will override  Bevel , otherwise  Bevel will override  NoBorder .

    See Also: Bevel flags for further details.

    Columns

    Specifies the number of columns of buttons to be created. This will give your Wharf a vertical layout, with the number of columns equal to the number specificed in columns. If unspecified, the number of columns will be  set to 1. If the columns are  set to a number greater than 1, then there will be that number of columns with enough rows to satisfy the requested number of buttons. Only one of *WharfRows or *WharfColumns should be specified.

     CompositionMethod testure_type

    Determines algorithm used to blend all the icons and Wharf  background to form the button's image. Valid es are 130-145 ( see MyStyles section ). The default value is 131 (  alpha -blending )

    FitContents

    Wharf will draw each button so that it fits its contents perfectly (icon or swallowed app ). That will cause some of the Wharf's buttons to differ in size from others.  Use in conjunction with  ShapeToContents .

    FlipLabel

    Will cause Wharf to draw vertical label  text .

     FolderOffset size

    sets the distance between opened folder and its parent.

     ForceSize Size

    If specified, will force pixmaps to  Size instead of the default of 64x64. This has no effect on the  Size of the displayed icons (they will be croped  if larger).

    Geometry

    Specifies the Wharf  window location and/or size. If the size is not specified, Wharf will auto-size itself in a reasonable manner. The geometry is a standard X11  window geometry specification; see XParseGeometry(3x), and EXAMPLES (below) for further details.

     LabelLocation number

    Specifies the location of the label. Correct values are integers from 0-32. label could be drawn on each side of the button and just on top of icon. It could also be aligned to different sides.

    MyStyle

    Specifies the style of the wharf button tiles, including  background  color ,  background pixmap (which may be transparent), and  background  gradient . This method of specifying the  background is preferred over the BgColor, MaxColors, Pixmap, TextureColor, and TextureType options, although those (older) options do still work.

    See Also: MyStyle definition for further details.

    NoBalloons

    FIXME:  add proper description here.

    OrthogonalFolderOffset

    FIXME:  add proper description here.

    Rows

    Specifies the number of rows of buttons to be created. This will give your Wharf a horizontal layout, with the number of rows equal to the number specified in rows. If unspecified, the number of rows will be  set to 1. If the rows are  set to a number greater than 1, then there will be that number of rows with enough columns to satisfy the requested number of buttons. Only one of *WharfRows or *WharfColumns should be specified.

    ShapeToContents

    Will cause Wharf to use X Shaped extentions and have a  window of non-rectangular shape. Shape is composed from the overall geometry of buttons ( see  FitContents ), shape of the  MyStyle used to draw Wharf  background (  if  BackPixmap 126 or 125 is used ), contents of each button - such as swallowed app's shape, label and icons.

    ShowHints

    FIXME:  add proper description here.

    See Also: Balloon Contents flags for further details.

    ShowLabel

    Tells Wharf to render a label on each of its buttons, effectively immitating the behaviour of the discontinued Zharf  module .

    Sound

    FIXME:  add proper description here.

    See Also: Wharf sound definition for further details.

    StretchBackground

    This should allow for all kinds of skins where each button is just a part of large shaped figure.

    WithdrawStyle

    Specifies the circumstances under which button 3 should cause the Wharf to withdraw to a corner. If style is 0, button 3 will do nothing. If style is 1 (the default), a click on any button in the toplevel bar will cause Wharf to withdraw to the nearest corner. If style is 2, a click on either the first or the last button in the toplevel bar will cause the withdrawal.
