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
              default is1implicitly for all windows.



       Button number

              Specifing a number to each use of Button will cause that buttons
              number to be displayed in the title bar. Number should be the
              same as used in TitleButtons setting. The default is to display
              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 usefull 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
              default 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"
              decoration. This is the default for all windows.



       HonorConfig

              Forces AfterStep to honor a client's request to reposition
              itself after its window has been mapped. This is a dangerous
              behavior 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,
              maximized, 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 NoExtWMHints.

              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
              window. 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.
              PPosition hint normally means that application has determined
              its position due to some of its own configuration settings, and
              position has not been explicitely 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
              attaching 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
              ButtonTitleFocus 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
              window's entire name.



       IgnoreConfig

              AfterStep will ignore a client's attempts to reposition its
              window after it has been mapped on the screen. Opposite of
              HonorConfig.

              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
              according 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
              corresponds toLayer -1, and StaysOnTop corresponds to Layer 1 .



       LongLiving

              A window will stay on the screen long enough to allow
              application of different placement policies, such as AvoidCover.
              Opposite of ShortLiving.

              See Also: ShortLiving.



       NoButton number

              Specifing a number to each use of NoButton will cause that
              buttons be hidden from the title bar. Number should be the same
              as used in TitleButtons setting. The default is to display 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; and the button has not
              been forced not to display by the use of Motif WM hints
              specified by application.



       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
              windows. 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
              obsolete properties for a window. Opposite of HonorGnomeHints.

              See Also: HonorGnomeHints.



       NoGroupHints

              AfterStep will not utilize a group hint set on the client's
              window. 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.
              Refer to the EXAMPLES below for a method to make all icons
              disappear.



       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
              reading widely accepted and used standards such as ICCCM.
              Gravity value is one of the hints that often get misplaced by
              applications. As the result may exhibit wierd 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
              interaction 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
              windows. Default Layer is 0.

               NOTE: deprecated, use Layer instead.



        StaysPut

              Places window in default Layer 0, disabling effects of
              StaysOnTop , 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
              unspecified, the default unfocus style will be used instead (see
              UWindowStyle , 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
              resolution 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
              resolution 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
              implicitly for all windows.



        WindowListSkip

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



       WindowOpacity
