CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

       ButtonAlign

              FIXME: add proper description here.

              See Also: Look Alignment flags for further details.

       ButtonBevel

              Specifies the bevel to be drawn around iconified windows.

       ButtonSize width  height

              Specifies  the  size  of  iconified  windows. Every iconified window button will be
              exactly width pixels wide and height pixels high. This includes titles drawn at the
              top,  but  not  the separate title window created by SeparateButtonTitle. If either
              width or height is less than one, that dimension will not be fixed. The default  is
              ButtonSize 0 0

       CursorFore

              use with CursorBack setting to adjust color of the mouse cursor.

       DefaultFrame "name"

              MyFrame  to  use  as default for all windows. Note: if you want a different framing
              for any window, you need to specify  it  in  the  database  file  using  the  Frame
              keyword.

       DefaultStyle "style_name"

              Specifies  the  MyStyle  to  use  when no style has been specifically defined for a
              given situation. Note that  if  a  style  named  "default"  has  been  defined  and
              DefaultStyle has not, the "default" style will be used as the default.

       DeskBack desk# "name"

              Specifies  what background to use for desk#. "name" can be either image filename in
              double-quotes, or the name of background definition  (see  MyBackground  definition
              for details).

       DontAnimateBackground

              disables  non-blocking  root  background  changing of full-screen backgrounds, that
              looks like slow animation. This is recommended for fast machines.

       DontDrawBackground

              If specified, will not display background image, use this with xearth or xfishtank.

       DrawMenuBorders 0|1|2

              Specifies the look of the (start)menu. Using 0 will draw the menu with no border on
              either  the  menu  label or menu item por- tions. Using 1 will draw a border around
              each menu label and around the menu item. Using 2 will drawn a  border  around  the
              menu label and the entire menu item list. The border colors are calculated from the
              BackColor under MyStyle menu_item of the look.name.  The  "hilight"  (top  &  left)
              color  is  one  half  lighter  than  the BackColor color and the "shadow" (bottom &
              right) is one half darker than the BackColor  color.  If  the  BackColor  color  is
              black, the color grey is used.

       FWindowStyle "style_name"

              Specifies the MyStyle to use for the focused window decorations.

       IconBox left top right bottom

              Specifies  a  region  of the screen in which to place iconified windows. Up to four
              icon boxes can be defined. If an IconBox is provided, icons will  automatically  be
              placed  in  them,  if  possible.  Otherwise,  they will be placed in the upper left
              corner of the screen. Each time a window is iconified, a new place is found for it,
              unless  the  icon  has been moved manually. An available space is searched for from
              left to right, then top to bottom. Icons will not be automatically placed on top of
              other   icons,   but   they   may  be  placed  underneath  application  windows  if
              StubbornIconPlacement has not been specified. If left or right  is  negative,  then
              AfterStep  will  add  the  screen  width  to it. If top or bottom is negative, then
              AfterStep will add the screen height to it. Note that -0 is not parsed as the right
              or  bottom pixel on the screen. Use -1 instead. The IconBox will normally be filled
              from left to right, then top to bottom. However, if the right edge of  the  IconBox
              is  closer  to the right edge of the screen than the left edge of the IconBox is to
              the left edge of the screen, then it will be filled from right to  left.  Similarly
              for  top  to bottom. For example, "2 2 -1 -1" will result in an IconBox which fills
              from right to left, then bottom to top.

       IconsGrowVertically

              Specifies that the Iconbox(es) should be filled vertically first.

       KillBackgroundThreshold size

              Here size is the maximum number of pixels in root background  image.  If  image  is
              bigger  that  this  -  it will be unloaded from memory when desktop is switched and
              image is no longer in use. Use it on systems with low memory.

       MArrowPixmap pixmap_name

              Specifies a pixmap to use as the submenu indicator in popup menus.

       MenuBalloonBorderHilite

       MenuHiTitleStyle "style_name"

              AfterStep now allows you to specify a MyStyle to be used for the  titlebar  of  the
              currently highlighted menu. AS soon as the menu goes out of focus its titlebar will
              be rendered using MenuTitleStyle.

       MenuHiliteCompositionMethod 130-145

              This is a funny feature - try it and see how you like different values  :)  If  you
              use  shades of grey for your item text - you may not see any difference for some of
              this values.

       MenuHiliteStyle "style_name"

              Specifies the MyStyle to use for highlighted menu items.

       MenuItemCompositionMethod 130-145

              This is a funny feature - try it and see how you like different values  :)  If  you
              use  shades of grey for your item text - you may not see any difference for some of
              this values.

       MenuItemStyle "style_name"

              Specifies the MyStyle to use for menu items.

       MenuMiniPixmaps minis

              Specifies whether mini pixmaps should be included in menus. If  minis  is  0,  mini
              pixmaps  are not included. If minis is 1, mini pixmaps are included. Note that mini
              pixmaps will not be added to menus until the next  time  menus  are  updated.  Mini
              pixmaps can cause AS to take much longer to load over a network.

       MenuNoBalloons

              FIXME: add proper description here.

       MenuPinOn pixmap_name

              MenuPinOn  is  deprecated and AfterStep will reinterpret it, and it will create new
              TitleButton using last unused TitleButton context.  It  will  then  assign  PinMenu
              function  to  this button. This button will only be shown on titlebars belonging to
              menu windows. This button behaves just like any other TitleButton - for example you
              can use TitleButtonOrder to specify where it should go. Problem is you may not know
              what context AfterStep had chosen for it. The better way  would  be  to  explicitly
              define TitleButton, and assign PinMenu to it in your feel.

       MenuStippleCompositionMethod 130-145

              This  is  a  funny feature - try it and see how you like different values :) If you
              use shades of grey for your item text - you may not see any difference for some  of
              this values.

       MenuStippleStyle "style_name"

              Specifies the MyStyle to use for stippled menu items.

       MenuSubItemStyle "style_name"

              AfterStep  now  includes  this new feature: when you select an item from the menu -
              this item will be marked as recently used, and next time the menu is opened it will
              show all the recently used items from its SUBMENU. For example you do :

              Menu->Applications->rxvt

              Next   time  you  open  the  Main  menu,  it  will  display  rxvt  just  under  the
              "Applications" item with some offset.

              It looks much better when this subitems are shown with different (smaller) font. To
              achieve  that  -  specify  a MyStyle with a smaller font using the MenuSubItemStyle
              option in your look file.

              This feature could be turned off or altered by using the RecentSubmenuItems  option
              in your feel file: set it to 0 to disable this feature.

       MenuTitleStyle "style_name"

              Specifies the MyStyle to use for menu titles.

       MinipixmapSize x y

              Changes the default maximum MiniPixmap size (24x24) to a user-specified value.

              See Also: MiniPixmap, MenuMiniPixmaps.

       MyBackground "background_name"

              Specifies  a  background  definition.  Please  note  that  only  desktops  can have
              different backgrounds - the viewports inside of a desktop are limited to  the  same
              background.

              MyBackground and Desk back as look options.

              MyStyle  has far greater number of BackPixmap types reflecting new functionality in
              libAfterImage.

              CompositionMethod setting has been added to different aspects of look.

              New options for more flexible placing of titlebar buttons has been added.

              Balloons now support both X and Y offset as well as MyStyle instead of simple  back
              and fore colors.
