I just used the autohide terminal from taviso.
following code performs the hiding motion of the terminal, now I want to restore my previous focus state after the hiding, what sould I add in this
PS: I try many times to subscibe to the fvwm maillinglist but failed, who can tell me exactly the procedure. I’ve followed the instructions on the homepage…
for example, I was always working in window-1 and I don’t want the hidden console permance to interrupt my former work, ie. I need window-1 to acquire focus right after the whole event. Do I make myself clear? Thanks
I tried it but there is something weird happened, if I have more than 2 windows in current page. It is not always the right window who acquire focus…
I have those codes in my config, maybe they are responsible for the odd…
+ I Next (CurrentPage, State 2) Focus
+ I None (CurrentPage, Focused) Prev (CurrentPage, !Iconified, !Sticky) Focus
+ I Current FlipFocus
+ I Current (!Iconified) All (CurrentPage, !Focused) State 2 False
+ I Current (!Iconified) State 2 True
But this is exactly right – “Prev” works on the last window within the stack ring, which is usually (although not always) dictated by focus pattern (such as when you last focused it), or the last window to be created on that page, etc. if you want a specific (and always so) window to be focused, you can use:
+ I All (CurrentPage, "some_name", AcceptsFocus) FlipFocus
I know it’s hard for you, but you’re going to have to be much more specific in what it is you want to have happen. How are you autohiding these windows? if it is by selecting them with the mouse (which I suspect it would be as you’re using FvwmAuto), then you would have had to have gone from a focused window (Window A) to Window B. As soon as Window B had shaded, it will go back to the previous window (Window A). If that’s not what you want, state what it is you do want.
Ok. How is sending an email to:
with nothing more than the word:
in the body of the email difficult? There will be a short wait, whilst majordormo processes your email, then you just following the instructions in the reply.
huuh…What you described is just what I want, but maybe you’ve misled by my StartupFunction…
I’m not autohiding the hiddenconsole by FakeClick and my FvwmAuto module is useless throughout my config file, I just “shade” and “unshade” a particular terminal(A) which is acting like “hiding” and “showing”. The operation was attached to a keybinding, in my config, Alt+H.
What I want is to have the focus between terminal A (the particular one which I described as hiddenconsole) and my working Window B. But Now the focus is cycling around terminal A, Window B and Window
C, D, E…if there exists.
