Manual Reference Pages  -  PLACEMENT (1)

NAME

Placement - AfterStep supports several different window placement policies. Some of them designed to fill free space, and some allowing for windows to be placed on top of others.

CONTENTS

Configuration Options

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

Cascade

Windows will be placed in cascading order.

Manual

Windows must be placed manually.

RandomPlacement

Windows will be placed randomply, in space unobstructed by windows that have AvoidCover attribute set.

SmartPlacement

Most suitable free space area will be chosen to place window in. If no such area is found of sufficient size - window will be placed using secondary placement strategy, or manually, if no secondary strategy is specified.

Tile

Windows will be tiled in free space. If no space of suitable size is found, then secondary placement strategy is engaged, or window will have to be placed manually. This is similar to SmartPlacement, except that suitable space is chosen following direction left-to-right, top-to-bottom, instead of looking for space, most fitting the window size (the way SmartPlacement works).
