SYNOPSIS

Animate is spawned by afterstep, so no command line invocation will work. From within the .steprc file, Animate is spawned as follows:

Module Animate

or from within an afterstep pop-up menu:

Popup "Module-Popup"         Title "Modules"         Module "Wharf" Wharf         Module "NoClutter" Clean         Module "Identify" Ident         Module "Banner" Banner         Module "Debug" Debug         Module "SaveDesktop" Save         Module "Pager" Pager 0 3         Module "Animate" Animate EndPopup

DESCRIPTION

The Animate module animates window actions. It currently animates iconification and deiconification in a zoom style or a twisty spinning style.

INITIALIZATION

During initialization, Animate will eventually search a configuration file which describes the time-outs and actions to take. The configuration file is the same file that afterstep used during initialization.

INVOCATION

The invocation method was shown in the synopsis section

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

Animate reads the same .steprc file as fvwm reads when it starts up, and looks for certain configuration options:

*AnimateColor color Tells Animate what color to draw with.

*AnimateDelay msecs Tells Animate how many milliseconds to sleep between frames of animation.

*AnimateIterations iterations Tells Animate how many steps to break the animation into.

*AnimateTwist twist Tells Animate how many revolutions to twist the iconification frame.

*AnimateWidth width Tells Animate how wide a line to draw with. Note that with 0 is a fast line at Width 1

*AnimateResize mode Tells Animate what method to use to draw resizes. zoom and twist are currently supported.
