An x, y, w patch for dmenu

This patch provide the necessary options to achieve a precise placement of the dmenu window.
It also added an option to hide the matching items when the search string is empty.

I made the following script to center dmenu's window:

#! /bin/sh

width_height=`xwininfo -root | grep -m 1 '\-geometry' | grep -oE '[0-9]+x[0-9]+'`

width=${width_height%x*}
height=${width_height#*x}
bar_width=$(( $width / 3 ))
left_shift=$(( ($width - $bar_width) / 2 ))
top_shift=$(( $height / 3 ))

dmenu_run -fn "$fn" -nb "$nb" -nf "$nf" -sb "$sb" -sf "$sf" -p '>' -l 3 -q -x $left_shift -y $top_shift -w $bar_width

Re: An x, y, w patch for dmenu

This is pretty neat! You should post this on the suckless-dev ML.

edit: in case you're not afraid of bash, here's a bash3/awk alternative to calculating the offsets:

IFS=$'\n' read -r -d '' bar_width left_shift top_shift < \
    <(xwininfo -root | awk '/-geometry/ {
      split($2, dim, /[x+]/)

      bar_width = dim[1] / 3
      left_shift = (dim[1] - bar_width) / 2
      top_shift = dim[2] / 3
  
      printf "%.0f\n%.0f\n%.0f\n", bar_width, left_shift, top_shift
    }')

Re: An x, y, w patch for dmenu

I made an AUR package for this, if you don't mind. PKGBUILD is my first, so it might not be perfect, but it cleanly patches & builds against 4.4.1, so I went ahead and uploaded it.

Please, go ahead.
If you want to name it based on the provided options it should be dmenu_xywq.

Re: An x, y, w patch for dmenu

I'll go ahead and update the PKGBUILD to grab it from your Github when I get a sec. I guess I'll go ahead and change the name, too, gotta post to AUR-General anyway for adoption of a couple packages, I'll just add the old package's removal request onto that big_smile
