NAME

       FvwmScroll - the FVWM scroll-bar module

SYNOPSIS

       FvwmScroll is spawned by fvwm, so no command line invocation will work.

DESCRIPTION

       The  FvwmScroll  module  prompts the user to select a target window, if the module was not
       launched from within a window context in Fvwm.  After that, it adds  scroll  bars  to  the
       selected window, to reduce the total desktop space consumed by the window.

       FvwmScroll  reads  the  same  .fvwmrc  file as fvwm reads when it starts up, and looks for
       lines similar to "*FvwmScrollFore green".

       FvwmScroll should not be used with windows which move or resize themselves, nor should  it
       be  used  with  windows which set the WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS property. Operation is fine with
       windows that have a private colormap.

COPYRIGHTS

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

       Copyright  1994,  Robert  Nation.  No guarantees or warranties or anything are provided or
       implied in any way whatsoever. Use this program at your own risk. Permission to  use  this
       program for any purpose is given, as long as the copyright is kept intact.

INITIALIZATION

       During  initialization,  FvwmScroll  will  eventually  search  a  configuration file which
       describes the colors to use.  The configuration file is  the  same  file  that  fvwm  used
       during initialization.

       If  the  FvwmScroll  executable is linked to another name, ie ln -s FvwmScroll MoreScroll,
       then another module  called  MoreScroll  can  be  started,  with  a  completely  different
       configuration than FvwmScroll, simply by changing the keyword  FvwmScroll to MoreScroll.

INVOCATION

       FvwmScroll  can be invoked by binding the action 'Module FvwmScroll x y' to a menu or key-
       stroke in the .fvwmrc file.  The parameter x  and  y  are  integers,  which  describe  the
       horizontal  and  vertical  window size reduction.  Fvwm will search directory specified in
       the ModulePath configuration option to attempt  to  locate  FvwmScroll.  Although  nothing
       keeps you from launching FvwmScroll at start-up time, you probably don't want to.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

       FvwmScroll  reads  the  same  .fvwmrc  file as fvwm reads when it starts up, and looks for
       lines as listed below:

       *FvwmScrollFore color
              Tells the module to use color instead of grey for scroll bars themselves.

       *FvwmScrollBack color
              Tells the module to use color instead of black for the window background.

BUGS

       When the scroll bars are removed by clicking on the button in the lower right corner,  the
       window does not restore its location correctly.
