NAME

MyFrame - defines how AfterStep should construct window’s frame

CONTENTS

Configuration Options

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

AllowBorder

Denotes that beveled borders should be drawn around the window frame and titlebar. This is on by default, so this option is only useful in combination with inheriting previously defined window frames.

See Also: Inherit MyFrame for details.

CondenseTitlebar Left|Right|Center

Allows titlebars to be smaller then the size of the window. The parameter defines the Alignment of the whole titlebar.

See Also: Alignment flags for further details.

Corner [ SouthEast | SouthWest | NorthEast | NorthWest ]

Specifies the corner of the window frame to be decorated and the pixmap to be used.

CornerAlign

FIXME: add proper description here.

See Also: Alignment flags for further details.

CornerBevel Bottom|Extra|NoInline|NoOutline|none|Left|Right|Top

Sets the default bevel of a window s frame corners.

If you need different bevels for the different window states, use CornerFocusedBevel, CornerUnfocusedBevel, CornerStickyBevel

See Also: Bevel flags for further details.

CornerFBevel

Alias for CornerFocusedBevel.

See Also: Bevel flags for further details.

CornerFocusedBevel Bottom|Extra|NoInline|NoOutline|none|Left|Right|Top

Sets the bevel of the window s frame corners while window is in focused state.

If this is not used, values set with CornerBevel will be used.

See Also: Bevel flags for further details.

CornerSBevel

Alias for CornerStickyBevel.

See Also: Bevel flags for further details.

CornerSize NorthEast|SouthEast|NorthWest|SouthWest|Any WIDTHxHEIGHT

FIXME: add proper description here.

CornerStickyBevel NorthEast|SouthEast|NorthWest|SouthWest|Any None|[Left,Top,Right,Bottom,Extra,NoOutline]

Sets the bevel of the window s frame corners while window is in sticky state. This overwrites any value set with CornerBevel.

If this is not used, values set with CornerBevel will be used.

See Also: Bevel flags for further details.

CornerUBevel

Alias for CornerUnfocusedBevel.

See Also: Bevel flags for further details.

CornerUnfocusedBevel Bottom|Extra|NoInline|NoOutline|none|Left|Right|Top

Sets the bevel of the window s frame corners while window is in unfocused state.

Window frame decorations (aka MyFrame)

Each window is surrounded by so-called frame decoration. each frame decoration could be built from 9 TBars:

1) Main Titlebar with icons on left, label in the middle and icons on right. Label may also have special underlying image - so called Title Background. Ordering of this elements is set by TitleButtonOrder setting ( see below ).

2) 4 frame sides. Each of this have fixed width that is determined by SideSize setting or image size if SideSize is ommited. Second dimension of the TBar changes to match the size of the window.

3) 4 frame corners. Each of this have both fixed width and height, as determined by CornerSize setting or image size.

Each of above elements is rendered by generating background using respective MyStyle, and then overlaying images/buttons and text on top of it. Default overlaying is done using composition method alpha-blend. In case of main Titlebar that could be changed. Bevel is then drawn on top of the image as specified in respective setting.

MyFrame allows different MyStyles to be used for titlebar and frame decorations. If any of those are ommited - default setting from FWindowStyle/UWindowStyle/SWindowStyle will be used.

Important: If you use semi-transparent images for frame sides - they will be overlayed on top of MyStyle generated background, so if you want it to be overlayed over root background - you should use MyStyle with BackPixmap set to 129 or 149.

Also note that unless you use MYStyle with BackPixmap 126 and 125 - frame decorations will not be shaped. Likewise if you want frame part to have only the shape of the image, you specified, with no background at all - use MyStyle with BackPixmap set like so :

BackPixmap 126 empty.xpm

Where empty.xpm is 1x1 completely transparent image (supplied as desktop/icons/common/empty.xpm ).

To identify side/corner it is possible to use abbreviations, such as: N, NW, SW, etc.

All the CompositionMethod settings must have one of the BackPixmap types from MyStyles ( ie 130-143 )

Align setting may have different meaning/capabilities for different items. When applied to text - it simply aligns text to sides mentioned. When applied to image - such as title background or frame side pixmap - it also specifies if image should be tiled, scaled or left same size. Make sure that you use HTiled,VTiled or HScaled,VScaled for frame sides - otherwise images on they will not be resized to match window size (this is also a feature :).

To center item specify Align to include both sides. For example :

Align Left,Right

will center item horizontally.

Note that TitleBackground option allows you to specify an image to be used under titlebar label in addition to the MyStyle. This was done for better shaped titlebars. You may have MyStyle to be completely transparent shape, while TitleBackground some non-transparent image, and that will provide better visibility for the titlebar text.
