Synopsis

#include <Xm/Xm.h>
#include <X11/Shell.h>

Description

WMShell is a top-level widget that encapsulates the interaction with the window manager.

Classes

WMShell inherits behavior and resources from the Core, Composite, and Shell classes.

The class pointer is wmShellWidgetClass.

The class name is WMShell.

New Resources

The following table defines a set of widget resources used by the programmer to specify data. The programmer can also set the resource values for the inherited classes to set attributes for this widget. To reference a resource by name or by class in a .Xdefaults file, remove the XmN or XmC prefix and use the remaining letters. To specify one of the defined values for a resource in a .Xdefaults file, remove the Xm prefix and use the remaining letters (in either lowercase or uppercase, but include any underscores between words). The codes in the access column indicate if the given resource can be set at creation time (C), set by using XtSetValues (S), retrieved by using XtGetValues (G), or is not applicable (N/A).

XmNbaseHeight

Specifies the base for a progression of preferred heights for the window manager to use in sizing the widget. The preferred heights are XmNbaseHeight plus integral multiples of XmNheightInc, with a minimum of XmNminHeight and a maximum of XmNmaxHeight. If an initial value is not supplied for XmNbaseHeight but is supplied for XmNbaseWidth, the value of XmNbaseHeight is set to 0 (zero) when the widget is realized.

XmNbaseWidth

Specifies the base for a progression of preferred widths for the window manager to use in sizing the widget. The preferred widths are XmNbaseWidth plus integral multiples of XmNwidthInc, with a minimum of XmNminWidth and a maximum of XmNmaxWidth. If an initial value is not supplied for XmNbaseWidth but is supplied for XmNbaseHeight, the value of XmNbaseWidth is set to 0 (zero) when the widget is realized.

XmNheightInc

Specifies the increment for a progression of preferred heights for the window manager to use in sizing the widget. The preferred heights are XmNbaseHeight plus integral multiples of XmNheightInc, with a minimum of XmNminHeight and a maximum of XmNmaxHeight. If an initial value is not supplied for XmNheightInc but is supplied for XmNwidthInc, the value of XmNheightInc is set to 1 when the widget is realized.

XmNiconMask

Specifies a bitmap that could be used by the window manager to clip the XmNiconPixmap bitmap to make the icon nonrectangular.

XmNiconPixmap

Specifies a bitmap that could be used by the window manager as the application's icon.

XmNiconWindow

Specifies the ID of a window that could be used by the window manager as the application's icon.

XmNiconX

Specifies a suitable place to put the application's icon; this is a hint to the window manager in root window coordinates. Because the window manager controls icon placement policy, this resource may be ignored.

XmNiconY

Specifies a suitable place to put the application's icon; this is a hint to the window manager in root window coordinates. Because the window manager controls icon placement policy, this resource may be ignored.

XmNinitialState

Specifies the state the application wants the widget instance to start in. It must be one of the constants NormalState or IconicState.

XmNinput

Specifies the application's input model for this widget and its descendants. The meaning of a True or False value for this resource depends on the presence or absence of a WM_TAKE_FOCUS atom in the WM_PROTOCOLS property:

Input Model XmNinput WM_TAKE_FOCUS



No input False Absent



Passive True Absent



Locally active True Present



Globally active False Present



For more information on input models, see the X Consortium Standard Inter-Client Communication Conventions Manual (ICCCM).

XmNmaxAspectX

Specifies the numerator of the maximum aspect ratio (X/Y) that the application wants the widget instance to have.

XmNmaxAspectY

Specifies the denominator of the maximum aspect ratio (X/Y) that the application wants the widget instance to have.

XmNmaxHeight

Specifies the maximum height that the application wants the widget instance to have.

XmNmaxWidth

Specifies the maximum width that the application wants the widget instance to have.

XmNminAspectX

Specifies the numerator of the minimum aspect ratio (X/Y) that the application wants the widget instance to have.

XmNminAspectY

Specifies the denominator of the minimum aspect ratio (X/Y) that the application wants the widget instance to have.

XmNminHeight

Specifies the minimum height that the application wants the widget instance to have.

XmNminWidth

Specifies the minimum width that the application wants the widget instance to have.

XmNtitle

Specifies the application name to be displayed by the window manager. The default is the icon name, if specified; otherwise, it is the name of the application. When XtGetValues is called on this resource, the returned value is a pointer to the actual resource value and should not be freed.

XmNtitleEncoding

Specifies a property type that represents the encoding of the XmNtitle string. If a language procedure has been set, the default is None; otherwise, the default is XA_STRING. When the widget is realized, if the value is None, the corresponding name is assumed to be in the current locale. The name is passed to XmbTextListToTextProperty with an encoding style of XStdICCTextStyle. The resulting encoding is STRING if the name is fully convertible to STRING; otherwise it is COMPOUND_TEXT. The values of the encoding resources are not changed; they remain None.

XmNtransient

Specifies a Boolean value that is True if the widget instance is transient, typically a popup on behalf of another widget. The window manager may treat a transient widget's window differently from other windows. For example, a window manager may not iconify a transient window separately from its associated application. Applications and users should not normally alter this resource.

XmNwaitForWm

When True, specifies that the Intrinsics waits the length of time given by the XmNwmTimeout resource for the window manager to respond to certain actions before assuming that there is no window manager present. This resource is altered by the Intrinsics as it receives, or fails to receive, responses from the window manager.

XmNwidthInc

Specifies the base for a progression of preferred widths for the window manager to use in sizing the widget. The preferred widths are XmNbaseWidth plus integral multiples of XmNwidthInc, with a minimum of XmNminWidth and a maximum of XmNmaxWidth. If an initial value is not supplied for XmNwidthInc but is supplied for XmNheightInc, the value of XmNwidthInc is set to 1 when the widget is realized.

XmNwindowGroup

Specifies the ID of a window with which this widget instance is associated. By convention, this window is the "leader" of a group of windows. A window manager may treat all windows in a group in some way; for example, it may always move or iconify them together.

If no initial value is specified, the value is set to the window of the first realized ancestor widget in the parent hierarchy when the widget is realized. If a value of XtUnspecifiedWindowGroup is specified, no window group is set.

XmNwinGravity

Specifies the window gravity for use by the window manager in positioning the widget. If no initial value is specified, the value is set when the widget is realized. If XmNgeometry is not NULL, XmNwinGravity is set to the window gravity returned by XWMGeometry. Otherwise, XmNwinGravity is set to NorthWestGravity.

XmNwmTimeout

Specifies the length of time that the Intrinsics waits for the window manager to respond to certain actions before assuming that there is no window manager present. The value is in milliseconds and must not be negative.
