Description

xprompt operations to bring windows to you, and bring you to windows.

Synopsis

Usage

WindowPrompt brings windows to you and you to windows. That is to say, it pops up a prompt with window names, in case you forgot where you left your XChat. It also offers helpers to build the subset of windows which is used for the prompt completion.

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

import XMonad.Prompt
import XMonad.Prompt.Window

and in the keys definition:

, ((modm .|. shiftMask, xK_g     ), windowPrompt def Goto wsWindows)
, ((modm .|. shiftMask, xK_b     ), windowPrompt def Bring allWindows)

The autoComplete option is a handy complement here:

, ((modm .|. shiftMask, xK_g     ), windowPrompt
def { autoComplete = Just 500000 }
Goto allWindows)

The '500000' is the number of microseconds to pause before sending you to your new window. This is useful so that you don't accidentally send some keystrokes to the selected client.

For detailed instruction on editing the key binding see XMonad.Doc.Extending.
