FvwmAuto






FvwmAuto − the FVWM auto‐raise module

FvwmAuto is spawned by fvwm, so no command line invocation will work.  The
correct syntax is:

     Module FvwmAuto Timeout [EnterCommand [LeaveCommand]]

     AddToMenu Modules "Modules"      Title
     +                 "Audio"        Module FvwmAudio
     +                 "Auto"         Module FvwmAuto 300 raise lower
     +                 "Buttons"      Module FvwmButtons
     +                 "Ident"        Module FvwmIdent
     +                 "Banner"       Module FvwmBanner
     +                 "Pager"        Module FvwmPager 0 3

The Timeout argument is required. It specifies how long a window must retain the
keyboard input focus before the command is executed. The delay is measured in
milliseconds, and any integer 0 or greater is acceptable.

EnterCommand and LeaveCommand are optional.  EnterCommand is executed Timeout
milliseconds after a window gets the input focus, LeaveCommand is executed
Timeout milliseconds after the window has lost focus.

"Raise" is the default for EnterCommand, but any fvwm2 function is allowed. I
would not use "Close" or "Destroy" with a low timeout, though.  The LeaveCommand
can be handy for a tidy desktop. Experiment with:

     Module FvwmAuto 0 Nop Lower
     Module FvwmAuto 0 Nop Iconify



FvwmAuto just appeared one day, nobody knows how.
FvwmAuto was simply rewritten 09/96, nobody knows by whom.
