xmonad-contrib-bluetilebranch-0.8.1: Third party extensions for xmonadSource codeContentsIndex
Support for simple mouse gestures.
data Direction

mouseGestureH :: (Direction -> X ()) -> X () -> X ()
mouseGesture :: Map [Direction] (Window -> X ()) -> Window -> X ()
mkCollect :: (MonadIO m, MonadIO m') => m (Direction -> m' [Direction], m' [Direction])

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

 import XMonad.Actions.MouseGestures
 import qualified XMonad.StackSet as W

then add an appropriate mouse binding:

     , ((modMask x .|. shiftMask, button3), mouseGesture gestures)

where gestures is a Map from gestures to actions on windows, for example:

     gestures = M.fromList
         [ ([], focus)
         , ([U], \w -> focus w >> windows W.swapUp)
         , ([D], \w -> focus w >> windows W.swapDown)
         , ([R, D], \_ -> sendMessage NextLayout)

This is just an example, of course; you can use any mouse button and gesture definitions you want.

For detailed instructions on editing your mouse bindings, see XMonad.Doc.Extending.

data Direction Source

An enumeration of the four cardinal directions/sides of the screen.

Ideally this would go in its own separate module in Util, but ManageDocks is angling for inclusion into the xmonad core, so keep the dependencies to a minimum.

show/hide Instances
mouseGestureH :: (Direction -> X ()) -> X () -> X ()Source
mouseGestureH moveHook endHook is a mouse button event handler. It collects mouse movements, calling moveHook for each update; when the button is released, it calls endHook.
mouseGesture :: Map [Direction] (Window -> X ()) -> Window -> X ()Source
A utility function on top of mouseGestureH. It uses a Map to look up the mouse gesture, then executes the corresponding action (if any).
mkCollect :: (MonadIO m, MonadIO m') => m (Direction -> m' [Direction], m' [Direction])Source
A callback generator for mouseGestureH. mkCollect returns two callback functions for passing to mouseGestureH. The move hook will collect mouse movements (and return the current gesture as a list); the end hook will return a list of the completed gesture, which you can access with >>=.
