NAME
       Look - AfterStep	look

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
       ButtonAlign

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

	      See Also:	Look Alignment flags for further details.

       ButtonBevel

	      Specifies	the bevel to be	drawn around iconified windows.

	      See Also:	Look Bevel flags for further details.

       ButtonIconSpacing

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

       ButtonSize width	 height

	      Specifies	 the size of iconified windows.	Every iconified	window
	      button will be exactly width pixels wide and height pixels high.
	      This  includes titles drawn at the top, but not the separate ti-
	      tle window created by SeparateButtonTitle. If  either  width  or
	      height  is  less than one, that dimension	will not be fixed. The
	      default is ButtonSize 0 0

       CursorBack

	      use with CursorFore setting to adjust color of the mouse cursor.

       CursorFore

	      use with CursorBack setting to adjust color of the mouse cursor.

       DefaultFrame "name"

	      MyFrame to use as	default	for all	windows. Note: if you  want  a
	      different	 framing for any window, you need to specify it	in the
	      database file using the Frame keyword.

       DefaultStyle "style_name"

	      Specifies	the MyStyle to use when	no style has been specifically
	      defined  for  a given situation. Note that if a style named "de-
	      fault" has been defined and DefaultStyle has not,	the  "default"
	      style will be used as the	default.

       DeskBack	desk# "name"

	      Specifies	what background	to use for desk#. "name" can be	either
	      image filename in	double-quotes, or the name of background defi-
	      nition (see MyBackground definition for details).

       DontAnimateBackground

	      disables	non-blocking  root  background changing	of full-screen
	      backgrounds, that	looks like slow	animation. This	is recommended
	      for fast machines.

       DontDrawBackground

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

       DrawMenuBorders 0|1|2

	      Specifies	the look of the	(start)menu. Using  0  will  draw  the
	      menu  with  no border on either the menu label or	menu item por-
	      tions. Using 1 will draw a border	around	each  menu  label  and
	      around  the  menu	 item.	Using 2	will drawn a border around the
	      menu label and the entire	menu item list.	The border colors  are
	      calculated  from	the  BackColor	under MyStyle menu_item	of the
	      look.name. The "hilight" (top & left) color is one half  lighter
	      than  the	 BackColor  color and the "shadow" (bottom & right) is
	      one half darker than the BackColor color.	If the BackColor color
	      is black,	the color grey is used.

       FWindowStyle "style_name"

	      Specifies	the MyStyle to use for the focused window decorations.

       IconBox left top	right bottom

	      Specifies	 a  region  of	the screen in which to place iconified
	      windows. Up to four icon boxes can be defined. If	an IconBox  is
	      provided,	 icons will automatically be placed in them, if	possi-
	      ble. Otherwise, they will	be placed in the upper left corner  of
	      the  screen.  Each  time	a  window is iconified,	a new place is
	      found for	it, unless the icon has	been moved manually. An	avail-
	      able  space is searched for from left to right, then top to bot-
	      tom. Icons will not be automatically  placed  on	top  of	 other
	      icons,  but they may be placed underneath	application windows if
	      StubbornIconPlacement has	not been specified. If left  or	 right
	      is  negative, then AfterStep will	add the	screen width to	it. If
	      top or bottom is negative, then AfterStep	will  add  the	screen
	      height  to it. Note that -0 is not parsed	as the right or	bottom
	      pixel on the screen. Use -1 instead. The IconBox	will  normally
	      be  filled  from	left to	right, then top	to bottom. However, if
	      the right	edge of	the IconBox is closer to the right edge	of the
	      screen  than the left edge of the	IconBox	is to the left edge of
	      the screen, then it will be filled from right to left. Similarly
	      for  top	to  bottom. For	example, "2 2 -1 -1" will result in an
	      IconBox which fills from right to	left, then bottom to top.

       IconsGrowVertically

	      Specifies	that  the  Iconbox(es)	should	be  filled  vertically
	      first.

       KillBackgroundThreshold size

	      Here size	is the maximum number of pixels	in root	background im-
	      age. If image is bigger that this	- it  will  be	unloaded  from
	      memory  when  desktop is switched	and image is no	longer in use.
	      Use it on	systems	with low memory.

       MArrowPixmap pixmap_name

	      Specifies	a pixmap to use	as  the	 submenu  indicator  in	 popup
	      menus.

       MenuBalloonBorderHilite

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

	      See Also:	Look Bevel flags for further details.

       MenuBalloonCloseDelay

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

       MenuBalloonDelay

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

       MenuBalloonStyle

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

       MenuBalloonTextPaddingX

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

       MenuBalloonTextPaddingY

       MenuBalloonYOffset

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

       MenuBalloons

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

       MenuHiTitleStyle	"style_name"

	      AfterStep	now allows you to specify a MyStyle to be used for the
	      titlebar of the currently	hilighted menu.	AS soon	 as  the  menu
	      goes  out	 of  focus its titlebar	will be	rendered using MenuTi-
	      tleStyle.

       MenuHiliteCompositionMethod 130-145

	      This is a	funny feature -	try it and see how you like  different
	      values :)	If you use shades of grey for your item	text - you may
	      not see any difference for some of this values.

       MenuHiliteStyle "style_name"

	      Specifies	the MyStyle to use for hilighted menu items.

       MenuItemCompositionMethod 130-145

	      This is a	funny feature -	try it and see how you like  different
	      values :)	If you use shades of grey for your item	text - you may
	      not see any difference for some of this values.

       MenuItemStyle "style_name"

	      Specifies	the MyStyle to use for menu items.

       MenuMiniPixmaps minis

	      Specifies	whether	mini pixmaps should be included	in  menus.  If
	      minis  is	 0, mini pixmaps are not included. If minis is 1, mini
	      pixmaps are included. Note that mini pixmaps will	not  be	 added
	      to menus until the next time menus are updated. Mini pixmaps can
	      cause AS to take much longer to load over	a network.

       MenuNoBalloons

	      FIXME: add proper	description here.

       MenuPinOn pixmap_name

	      MenuPinOn	is deprecated and AfterStep will reinterpret  it,  and
	      it  will	create	new  TitleButton using last unused TitleButton
	      context. It will then assign PinMenu function  to	 this  button.
	      This  button  will  only be shown	on titlebars belonging to menu
	      windows. This button behaves just	like any other	TitleButton  -
	      for  example  you	 can  use TitleButtonOrder to specify where it
	      should go. Problem is you	may not	know  what  context  AfterStep
	      had  chosen for it. The better way would be to explicitly	define
	      TitleButton, and assign PinMenu to it in your feel.

       MenuStippleCompositionMethod 130-145

	      This is a	funny feature -	try it and see how you like  different
	      values :)	If you use shades of grey for your item	text - you may
	      not see any difference for some of this values.

       MenuStippleStyle	"style_name"

	      Specifies	the MyStyle to use for stippled	menu items.

       MenuSubItemStyle	"style_name"

	      AfterStep	now includes this new feature: when you	select an item
	      from  the	 menu -	this item will be marked as recently used, and
	      next time	the menu is opened it will show	all the	recently  used
	      items from its SUBMENU. For exmaple you do :

	      Menu->Applications->rxvt

	      Next  time you open the Main menu, it will display rxvt just un-
	      der the "Applications" item with some offset.

	      It looks much better when	this subitems are shown	with different
	      (smaller	)  font.  To  achive that - specify a MyStyle with as-
	      maller font using	the MenuSubItemStyle option in your look file.

	      This feature could be turned off or altered  by  using  the  Re-
	      centSubmenuItems	option	in your	feel file: set it to 0 to dis-
	      able this	feature.

       MenuTitleStyle "style_name"

	      Specifies	the MyStyle to use for menu titles.

       MinipixmapSize x	y

	      See Also:	MiniPixmap, MenuMiniPixmaps.

       MyBackground "background_name"

	      Specifies	 a  background definition. Please note that only desk-
	      tops can have different backgrounds - the	viewports inside of  a
	      desktop are limited to the same background.

       MyFrame "frame_name"

	      Specifies	 a  frame  definition (window decor in general)	and is
	      covered in the MyFrame section of	the documentation. Please also
	      note  that  window decor can be defined on a per window basis if

       MyStyle "style_name"

	      Specifies	a MyStyle definition (which covers text	and/or	gradi-
