Description

A layout modifier that puts some windows in a "drawer" which retracts and expands depending on whether any window in it has focus.

Useful for music players, tool palettes, etc.

Synopsis

# Usage

To use this module, add the following import to ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs:

import XMonad.Layout.Drawer
myLayout = drawer onTop (Tall 1 0.03 0.5) ||| Full ||| RandomOtherLayout...
where
drawer = simpleDrawer 0.01 0.3 (ClassName "Rhythmbox" Or ClassName "Xchat")

main = xmonad def { layoutHook = myLayout }

This will place the Rhythmbox and Xchat windows in at the top of the screen only when using the Tall layout. See XMonad.Util.WindowProperties for more information on selecting windows.
