XMonad.Actions.Warp

Contents

Description

Warp the pointer to a given window or screen.

Synopsis

Usage

You can use this module with the following in your ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs:

import XMonad.Actions.Warp

then add appropriate keybindings to warp the pointer; for example:

 , ((modm,   xK_z     ), warpToWindow (1%2) (1%2)) -- @@ Move pointer to currently focused window

-- mod-ctrl-{w,e,r} @@ Move mouse pointer to screen 1, 2, or 3

   [((modm .|. controlMask, key), warpToScreen sc (1%2) (1%2))
       | (key, sc) <- zip [xK_w, xK_e, xK_r] [0..]]

Note that warping to a particular screen may change the focus.

banish :: Corner -> X () Source #

Move the mouse cursor to a corner of the focused window. Useful for uncluttering things.

Internally, this uses numerical parameters. We parametrize on the Corner type so the user need not see the violence inherent in the system.

warpToScreen and warpToWindow can be used in a variety of ways. Suppose you wanted to emulate Ratpoison's 'banish' command, which moves the mouse pointer to a corner? warpToWindow can do that!

banishScreen :: Corner -> X () Source #

Same as banish but moves the mouse to the corner of the currently focused screen

warpToScreen :: ScreenId -> Rational -> Rational -> X () Source #

Warp the pointer to the given position (top left = (0,0), bottom right = (1,1)) on the given screen.

warpToWindow :: Rational -> Rational -> X () Source #

Warp the pointer to a given position relative to the currently focused window. Top left = (0,0), bottom right = (1,1).
