XMonad.Layout.Drawer

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.
