       FvwmPager - the FVWM Pager module


       FvwmPager  is  spawned  by fvwm, so no command line invocation will work.  From within the
       .fvwmrc file, FvwmPager is spawned as follows:

       Module FvwmPager 0 3

       or from within an fvwm pop-up menu:

       Popup "Module-Popup"
            Title     "Modules"
            Module    "GoodStuff"    GoodStuff
            Module    "NoClutter"    FvwmClean
            Module    "FvwmIdentify" FvwmIdent
            Module  "Banner"        FvwmBanner
            Module    "Debug"        FvwmDebug
            Module  "SaveDesktop"   FvwmSave
            Module  "Pager"         FvwmPager 0 3

       where "0" is the first desktop to show, and "3" is the last.


       The FvwmPager module shows a miniature view of the Fvwm desktops which  are  specified  in
       the  command  line. This is a useful reminder of where your active windows are. Windows in
       the pager are shown in the same color as their fvwm decorations.

       The pager can be used to  change  your  viewport  into  the  current  desktop,  to  change
       desktops, or to move windows around.

       Pressing  mouse  button  1  in the pager will cause you viewport to change to the selected
       page of the selected desk. If you click with button 1 in the  desk-label  area,  you  will
       switch desks but not pages within the desk.

       Dragging  mouse button 2 on a miniature view of a window will cause that window to be move
       to the location where you release the mouse button, but your viewport will not change.  If
       you  drag  the  window  out  of  the pager and onto your desktop, a full size image of the
       window will appear for you to place. There is no way to pick up a full size image  of  the
       window  and  move it into the pager, however. Since some mice do not have button 2, I have
       made provisions to drag windows in the pager by using pressing  modifier-1  (usually  Alt)
       and dragging with button 3.

       Clicking  mouse  button 3 on a location within the current desktop will cause the viewport
       to move to the selected location, but will not align the  viewport  to  a  page  boundary.
       Dragging  button  3  will  cause the viewport to move as you drag. Button 3 operations are
       limited to the current desktop only.

       When iconified, the pager will work as a fully functional current page only pager. Windows
       and viewports can be moved within the icon of the pager. Users will want to make sure that
       they have no lines similar to

       Icon "Fvwm Pager" whatever

       in their .fvwmrc files.


       The FvwmClean program, and the concept for interfacing this module to the Window  Manager,
       are all original work by Robert Nation.

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

       If the FvwmPager executable is linked to another name, ie ln -s FvwmPager OtherPager, then
       another module called OtherPager can be started, with a completely different configuration
       than FvwmPager, simply by changing the keyword  FvwmPager to OtherPager. This way multiple
       pager programs can be used.


       You can direct the keyboard focus to any window on the current desktop  by  clicking  with
       button  2  on  its image in the pager. The window does not need to be visible, but it does
       need to be on the current page.


       The invocation method was shown in the synopsis section


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

       *FvwmPagerGeometry geometry
              Completely  or  partially  specifies  the  pager  windows location and geometry, in
              standard X11 notation.  In order to maintain an undistorted aspect ratio, you might
              want   to  leave  out  either  the  width  or  height  dimension  of  the  geometry

       *FvwmPagerRows rows
              Tells fvwm how many rows of desks to use when laying out the pager window.

       *FvwmPagerColumns columns
              Tells fvwm how many columnss of desks to use when laying out the pager window.

       *FvwmPagerIconGeometry geometry
              Specifies a size (optional) and location (optional) for the  pager's  icon  window.
              Since  there  is  no  easy  way for FvwmPager to determine the height of the icon's
              label, you will have to make an allowance for the icon   label  height  when  using
              negative  y-coordinates  in  the  icon  location  specification  (used to specify a
              location relative to the bottom instead of the top of the screen).

              Causes the pager to start iconified.

       *FvwmPagerFont font-name
              Specified a font to use to label the desktops.  If  font_name  is  "none"  then  no
              desktop labels will be displayed.

       *FvwmPagerSmallFont font-name
              Specified  a  font to use to label the window names in the pager. If not specified,
              the window labels will be omitted. Window labels seem  to  be  fairly  useless  for
              desktop scales of 32 or greater.

       *FvwmPagerFore color
              Specifies  the  color to use to write the desktop labels, and to draw the page-grid

       *FvwmPagerBack color
              Specifies the background color for the window.

       *FvwmPagerHilight color
              The active page and desk label will be highlighted by using this background pattern
              instead of the normal background.

       *FvwmPagerLabel desk label
              Assigns  the  text  label  to  desk desk in the pager window.  Useful for assigning
              symbolic names to desktops, ie

              *FvwmPagerLabel 1 Mail
              *FvwmPagerLabel 2 Maker
              *FvwmPagerLabel 2 Matlab

       DeskTopScale number
              If the geometry is not specified, then  a  desktop  reduction  factor  is  used  to
              calculate the pager's size. Things in the pager window are shown at 1/number of the
              actual size.
