ASDatabaseEntry(1)	 AfterStep X11 window manager	    ASDatabaseEntry(1)

NAME
       ASDatabaseEntry - to be used in entry of	AfterStep database

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
	AllowCover

	      Specifies	 that other windows should be allowed to cover the app
	      window. Turns off	AvoidCover . This is the default setting.

	AvoidCover

	      Specifies	that other windows should not be allowed to cover  the
	      app  window.  Prevents other windows from	moving in front	of (or
	      behind) the app window. If SmartPlacement	is  specified  in  the
	      feel  file,  windows  will not be	allowed	to automatically place
	      themselves over the app window, if  possible.  AllowCover	 turns
	      off AvoidCover . The default is AllowCover .

       BorderWidth width

	      Specifying  this in conjunction with NoHandles , sets the	border
	      width of a window	to be width . A	 width	of0causes  no  border.
	      This  option  has	no affect if not used with NoHandles . The de-
	      fault is1implicitly for all windows.

       Button number

	      Specifying a number to each use of Button	will cause  that  but-
	      tons  number  to be displayed in the title bar. Number should be
	      the same as used in TitleButtons setting.	The default is to dis-
	      play  all	buttons	defined	in the look.name file if the following
	      conditions are met: there	is a valid bitmap or pixmap  specified
	      for the button in	the look.name file; nd the button has not been
	      forced not to display by the use of Motif	WM hints specified  by
	      application.

	CirculateHit

	      Enables	window	 to   be  switched  to	using  ChangeWindowUp,
	      ChangeWindowDown or Warp (also  called  alt-tabbing)  functions.
	      This is the default implicitly for all windows.

	CirculateSkip

	      Causes  windows  to  be  skipped	over  when the ChangeWindowUp,
	      ChangeWindowDown or Warp (also called alt-tabbing) functions are
	      invoked. This is disabled	by default implicitly for all windows.

       DefaultGeometry WIDTHxHEIGHT+X+Y

	      This  will  force	 AfterStep  to replace parts of	window initial
	      placement	with predefined	values.	For example :

	      Style "*mozilla*"	DefaultGeometry	1024x500

	      will force mozilla windows (or any windows that  have  "mozilla"
	      in its name ) to have initial size 1024x500.

	      Note that	in case	of mozilla its useful to define	several	Styles
	      so that you will get different geometries	for  different	dialog
	      boxes, such as search/download/ etc

	Focus

	      This  will  set the window to accept input focus.	The is the de-
	      fault for	all windows.

       FocusOnMap

	      Client window will be focused when it is mapped even  if	it  is
	      not directly under mouse pointer.

       FocusStyle [ style ]

	      Specifies	 a  MyStyle to be used for this	window when it has the
	      keyboard focus. If style is unspecified, the default focus style
	      will be used instead (see	FWindowStyle , below).

       Frame "frame_name"

	      Enables "frame_name" to be used for decoration of	this window.

       Fullscreen

	      Makes window Fullscreen on startup.

       HandleWidth width

	      Specifies	 the  width  of	 the resize handles on the The default
	      width is8pixels.

	Handles

	      Specifies	that the app window will display the "low bar" decora-
	      tion. This is the	default	for all	windows.

       HonorConfig

	      Forces  AfterStep	 to honor a client's request to	reposition it-
	      self after its window has	been mapped. This is a	dangerous  be-
	      havior  as clients do not	have a reliable	way of determining the
	      best position for	themselves. Window positioning should be  left
	      to AfterStep as it knows better. Opposite	of IgnoreConfig.

	      See Also:	IgnoreConfig.

       HonorExtWMHints

	      Forces  AfterStep	 to  use extended window management hints that
	      the client sets on its windows. These generally  include	window
	      type (dialog, desktop, menu, etc), window	state (minimized, max-
	      imized, shaded, etc.), desktop, icon and additional  data.  Note
	      that these window-type hints cause AfterStep to apply one	of its
	      policies,	which may result in missing decorations, a non-default
	      layer, and other potential irregularities. The opposite is NoEx-
	      tWMHints.

	      See Also:	NoExtWMHints.

       HonorGnomeHints

	      Forces AfterStep to use the desktop, layer, and other hints data
	      that  a  client sets on its window using the old,	outdated GNOME
	      window management	hints. The opposite is NoGnomeHints.

	      See Also:	NoGnomeHints.

       HonorGroupHints

	      AfterStep	will utilize a group hint set on the client's  window.
	      This  will make AfterStep	apply group management policies	to all
	      windows of the client. For example: when one window in the group
	      is  moved	to a different desktop,	all other windows will follow.
	      Group members will usually be stacked together and  utilize  the
	      layer  of	 the  member  with  the	highest	layer within the given
	      group. Transient windows belonging to one	of  the	 members  will
	      overlay all of the members. The opposite is NoGroupHints.

	      See Also:	NoGroupHints.

       HonorKDEHints

	      AfterStep	will honor KDE specific	hints set on the client's win-
	      dow. This	is mainly used for status bar-type  applications.  The
	      opposite is NoKDEHints.

	      See Also:	NoKDEHints.

       HonorMotifHints

	      AfterStep	 will  honor  Motif specific hints set on the client's
	      window. This includes any	decorations  that  need	 to  be	 drawn
	      around  it  and  any  functions (minimize/maximize/re-size/move)
	      that it supports.	The opposite is	NoMotifHints.

	      See Also:	NoMotifHints.

       HonorPPosition

	      Forces AfterStep to use PPosition	hint for this  window.	PPosi-
	      tion hint	normally means that application	has determined its po-
	      sition due to some of its	own configuration settings, and	 posi-
	      tion has not been	explicitly requested on	the command line. This
	      setting overrides	NoPPosition setting in feel file.

       HonorRestack

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

       HonorTransientHints

	      Will force AfterStep to use transient hint, effectively  attach-
	      ing window to its	parent(	placing	it on the same layer , etc. )

       HonorXResources

	      Forces AfterStep to respect XResources database when it comes to
	      window placement.

	HorizontalTitle

	      Causes the window	titlebar to be placed horizontally on  top  of
	      the window. This is the implicit default for all windows.

       Icon filename

	      Specifies	 the  [filename] to use	when iconified,	overriding any
	      icon the app itself might	provide. NoIcon	turns  this  off.  The
	      default  is to use the app's supplied icon or the	icon specified
	      with the WM_NAME of "Unknown" or "*".

	IconTitle

	      Specifies	that a title should be displayed  under	 an  iconified
	      app. The colors used are the ForeColor and BackColor of the But-
	      tonTitleFocus in the look.name file. Note: less  space  is  left
	      for  the	app's  icon,  so it will be resized acordingly.	Only a
	      portion of the icon title	will be	displayed until	the icon gains
	      focus,  and  then	the title "box"	will expand to reveal the win-
	      dow's entire name.

       IgnoreConfig

	      AfterStep	will ignore a client's attempts	to reposition its win-
	      dow  after  it has been mapped on	the screen. Opposite of	Honor-
	      Config.

	      See Also:	HonorConfig.

       IgnoreRestack

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

       Layer layer

	      Specifies	what layer this	window should be in. layer may be  any
	      integer  (positive,  negative, or	zero). Windows are grouped ac-
	      cording to their layer, and may not be moved out of their	layer.
	      Windows  in higher layers	will be	above windows in lower layers.
	      By default, windows are placed in	layer  0.  StaysOnBack	corre-
	      sponds toLayer -1, and StaysOnTop	corresponds to Layer 1 .

       LongLiving

	      A	 window	 will stay on the screen long enough to	allow applica-
	      tion of different	placement policies, such as AvoidCover.	 Oppo-
	      site of ShortLiving.

	      See Also:	ShortLiving.

       NoButton	number

	      Specifying a number to each use of NoButton will cause that but-
	      tons be hidden from the title bar. Number	should be the same  as
	      used in TitleButtons setting. The	default	is to display all but-
	      tons defined in the look.name file if the	 following  conditions
	      are  met:	 there	is  a valid bitmap or pixmap specified for the
	      button in	the look.name file; and	the button has not been	forced
	      not  to display by the use of Motif WM hints specified by	appli-
	      cation.

       NoExtWMHints

	      AfterStep	will not use extended window management	hints that the
	      client sets on its windows. Opposite of HonorExtWMHints.

	      See Also:	HonorExtWMHints.

	NoFocus

	      This  will  set the window to refuse any input focus. Focus will
	      turn this	setting	off. This is off by default.

       NoFocusOnMap

	      AfterStep	will not yield a focus to the new window being mapped.
	      This prevents things like	passwords typed	into popped-up IM win-
	      dows. Opposite of	FocusOnMap.

	      See Also:	FocusOnMap.

       NoFrame

	      Disables frame decorations for this window.

       NoFullscreen

	      Prevents windows from starting up	as Fullscreen.

       NoGnomeHints

	      Causes AfterStep to disregard layer properties and several obso-
	      lete properties for a window. Opposite of	HonorGnomeHints.

	      See Also:	HonorGnomeHints.

       NoGroupHints

	      AfterStep	will not utilize a group hint set on the client's win-
	      dow. Opposite of HonorGroupHints.

	      See Also:	HonorGroupHints.

	NoHandles

	      Specifies	that the app window will not  display  the  "low  bar"
	      decoration. This also removes the	ability	to resize windows with
	      the resize handles on the	"low bar" ends.	The default is Handles
	      implicitly for all windows.

	NoIcon

	      Disables	icon from being	visible	when window is iconifyed. That
	      causes window to simply disappear	when the app is	iconified. Re-
	      fer  to the EXAMPLES below for a method to make all icons	disap-
	      pear.

       NoIconTitle

	      Specifies	that no	title should be	displayed under	 an  iconified
	      app.

       NoKDEHints

	      AfterStep	 will not honor	KDE specific hints set on the client's
	      window. Opposite of HonorKDEHints.

	      See Also:	HonorKDEHints.

       NoMotifHints

	      Forces AfterStep to disregard Motif decoration and functionality
	      hints.

       NoPPosition

	      Species that afterstep should ignore the PPosition field for the
	      specified	window,	in other words,	the window can't choose	 where
	      to  place	 itself.  Adherence to the PPosition field is required
	      for some applications.

	NoTitle

	      Specifies	that afterstep should not put a	title  bar  decoration
	      on the app. The is off by	default.

       NoTransientHints

	      Ignore transient hint - window will be treated as	an independent
	      window.

       NoXResources

	      Forces AfterStep to disregard XResources database	when it	 comes
	      to window	placement.

       OverrideGravity	NorthWest | North | NorthEast |	West | Center |	East |
       SouthWest | South | SouthEast | Static

	      Some applications	(notably xv) have been designed	without	 read-
	      ing  widely  accepted  and used standards	such as	ICCCM. Gravity
	      value is one of the hints	that often get misplaced  by  applica-
	      tions.  As  the  result  may exhibit weird placement behaviour -
	      such as windows moving to	the top-left with each resize or  file
	      opened.  Try  specifying	StaticGravity for such apps. Also some
	      applications do not set gravity correctly. For example you start
	      an application with geometry +10-10 which	means SouthWestGravity
	      and that should fix position of left and	bottom	sides  of  the
	      window.  But  window set its gravity to NorthWestGravity instead
	      and as the result	window gets placed further down	to the	bottom
	      by  the  size  of	 the framne decorations. In this cases you can
	      specify whatever gravity you want	and thus override those	stupid
	      apps.

	      See Also:	Gravity	type specification for further details.

       ShortLiving

	      ShortLiving  windows  are	always placed automatically and	do not
	      affect AvoidCover	stuff.

	Slippery

	      This is the default setting - windows stay on the	 desktop  they
	      were  placed  on,	 and  do not "follow" viewport,	when desk/view
	      changes.

	StartIconic

	      Causes the app to	start and immediately iconify  itself  to  the
	      IconBox .	The default is StartNormal implicitly for all windows.

	StartNormal

	      Disables the effects of StartIconic setting - window will	not be
	      iconifyed	upon startup. This is the default

	StartsAnyWhere

	      Upon startup window will be placed  onto	the  current  desktop.
	      This is the implicit default setting for all windows.

       StartsOnDesk number

	      Causes  the app window to	start on the specified desk number. If
	      SmartPlacement is	used in	the feel.name file,  the  window  will
	      appear  on  the specified	desk number, but will require interac-
	      tion to place it;	unless it was called with  geometry  settings.
	      Specific	Viewports  are	also allowed, refer to them below. The
	      default is StartsAnyWhere	implicitly for all windows.

	StaysOnBack

	      Places window in Layer -1, essentially forcing it	 to  go	 under
	      most other windows. Default Layer	is 0.

	       NOTE: deprecated, use Layer instead.

	StaysOnTop | StaysPut |	StaysOnBack

	      Places window in Layer 1,	making it go on	TOP of most other win-
	      dows. Default Layer is 0.

	       NOTE: deprecated, use Layer instead.

	StaysPut

	      Places window in default Layer 0,	disabling effects of  StaysOn-
	      Top , StaysOnBack	and Layer .

	       NOTE: deprecated, use Layer instead.

	Sticky

	      Causes the app window to stick to	it's location for each desktop
	      that becomes current, allowing  the  window  to  "follow"	 while
	      changings	 desks/	 views.	The default is Slippery	implicitly for
	      all windows.

       StickyStyle style

	      Specifies	a MyStyle to be	used for this window when it does  not
	      have the keyboard	focus, and is sticky. If style is unspecified,
	      the default sticky style will be used instead (see  SWindowStyle
	      ,	below).

	Title

	      Specifies	 that  afterstep  should put a title bar decoration on
	      the app. This the	default.

       UnfocusStyle style

	      Specifies	a MyStyle to be	used for this window when it does  not
	      have the keyboard	focus, and is not sticky. If style is unspeci-
	      fied, the	default	unfocus	style will be used instead (see	 UWin-
	      dowStyle , below).

       UseAnyViewport

	      AfterStep	 will treat an application as if it is relative	to the
	      desktop origin, when that	application specifies its geometry  at
	      the time of mapping.

	      See Also:	UseCurrentViewport.

       UseCurrentViewport

	      AfterStep	 will treat an application as if it is relative	to the
	      current viewport's origin, when that application	specifies  its
	      geometry at the time of mapping.

	      See Also:	UseAnyViewport.

	VerticalTitle

	      Causes  the  window  titlebar  to	be placed vertically along the
	      left side	of the window, instead of horizontally across the top.

       ViewportX number

	      Specifies	the coordinate along the x-axis	that afterstep	should
	      place  a	window.	 This  allows opening a	window on a particular
	      desk and view. number is measured	in pixels and the screen reso-
	      lution  is  the outline of a desk's particular boundaries; where
	      it will then place it upon another desk or view.	Combined  with
	      ViewportY	 ,  a window can be given geometry by afterstep	and be
	      placed in	the desired desktop and	view.

       ViewportY number

	      Specifies	the coordinate along the y-axis	that afterstep	should
	      place  a	window.	 This  allows opening a	window on a particular
	      desk and view. number is measured	in pixels and the screen reso-
	      lution  is  the outline of a desk's particular boundaries; where
	      it will then place it upon another desk or view.	Combined  with
	      ViewportX	 ,  a window can be given geometry by afterstep	and be
	      placed in	the desired desktop and	view.

       WindowBox "window_box_name"

	      Requires AfterStep to use	the specified WindowBox	for  placement
	      of this window.

	WindowListHit

	      Specifies	 that  the app name will be shown on both the internal
	      Window List (default click of mouse buttons 2 & 3	 on  the  root
	      window),	and the	WinList(1) module bar. This is the default im-
	      plicitly for all windows.

	WindowListSkip

	      Specifies	that the app name will be omitted from both the	inter-
	      nal  Window  List	 (default  click of mouse buttons 2 & 3	on the
	      root window), and	the WinList(1) module bar. The default is Win-
	      dowListHit implicitly for	all windows.

       WindowOpacity

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.
