NAME

       Gravity - Afterstep Gravity

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

       Center

              when window decorations are added to client window - window is moved so that center
              of the resulting framed window will be in the same location as the center of mapped
              client window without decorations.

       East

              Decorated  window  is  moved  so that its right side is located at same position as
              right side of undecorated client window.

       North

              Decorated window is moved so that its top side is located at same position  as  top
              side of undecorated client window.

       NorthEast

              Decorated  window is moved so that its right-top corner is located at same position
              as right-top corner of undecorated client window.

       NorthWest

              Decorated window is moved so that its left-top corner is located at  same  position
              as left-top corner of undecorated client window.

       South

              Decorated  window  is  moved so that its bottom side is located at same position as
              bottom side of undecorated client window.

       SouthEast

              Decorated window is moved so that  its  right-bottom  corner  is  located  at  same
              position as right-bottom corner of undecorated client window.

       SouthWest

              Decorated  window  is  moved  so  that  its  left-bottom  corner is located at same
              position as left-bottom corner of undecorated client window.

       Static

              when window decorations are added to client window - frame window is moved so  that
              client window remains in exact position it was mapped at.

       West

              Decorated window is moved so that its left side is located at same position as left
              side of undecorated client window.

DESCRIPTION

       When client window is mapped on screen -  Window  Manager  draws  some  frame  decorations
       around  it,  such  as  Titlebar,  resize handles, etc. As such decorations take additional
       space, it is nesseccary to specify if resulting larger window should be moved on screen in
       any  particular  direction  in  order  to  compensate  for  discrepancy  in  size. This is
       determined by Gravity hint.

       Usually Gravity is set by client itself, depending on geometry specified by the user.  For
       example  geometry -10+100 will set gravity to NorthEast, while +10+100 will set gravity to
       NorthWest. Sometimes this gravity setting requested by application  is  incorrect  though,
       due to longstanding tradition of misinterpretation of its meaning. In this cases it may be
       desired to override gravity. AfterStep users can accomplish that using database file,  and
       definig  new  Style for specific application with Gravity attribute set. For example it is
       recommended to set gravity of popular image viewver XV to be Static, as it tends  to  move
       self assuming that it knows everything.

       Below are the list of possible gravity values with explanation of its meaning.
