I'd like to know your color scheme and font too. So do you mind sharing? smile
Thanks.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Anyone know how to invert order of tags/layouts name and status in the bar (tags/layouts on the right and status on the left)?
I've tried but I can just make tags disappears.
Thanks.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

rix, you asked this in this same thread yesterday.

Please don't do that; people have seen your question, if they can help--as some already have--they will.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

There is no need to "up" threads.  As I understand it that is against the forum guidelines here.

Your quoting your response to me is similar.  I did see it the first time.  While I am happy to try to help others who want to learn some programming (particularly in C) and occasionally will offer code samples/examples on doing such things it is odd to *expect* others to do this for you.

Perhaps if you start another thread (in Programming and Scripting) specifically for the topic of reversing the order of these elements in the status bar it would create a place where those who are willing and able to contribute ideas or provide feedback on your initial attempts.

Please, don't confuse me with those people whom just refuse to learn and expect others do stuff for him/her.
I'm really sorry if I've gave you this impression.
I've not "offered" a samples of mine, only in this case, because no ones deserved to do that.
I've just inverted the order of some pieces of code. Nothing such important.
I've just obtained in the statusbar stuff like the following:
[nothing][space][status]
[layouts][space][status]
[tags][space][status]
[layouts][layouts][layouts]...[space][status]
[tags][space][layouts][status]
[tags][space][a mix of layouts and status]
You see...

Trilby wrote:

I'd like to change something in Dwm statusbar so I've thought that a thread about Dwm where the last post was about how to change something in the statusbar would be better then a brand new thread just for a single little question such is mine.
Anyway I'll do that way. Thanks for suggestion.

Monocle mode?  Does exactly what you want unless I'm misunderstanding.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Perhaps monocle and hide the statusbar.  If you wanted, you could write a simple function to do both with a single key binding.

Also you can hide the bar with the togglebar function. Try Alt+b.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Thanks everyone for your replies.

Sorry, if you are mistaken, but i posted this cause i saw the difference in google-chrome. when i use monocle it just maximizes the window and not the exact fullscreen option which google-chrome provides.(by pressing F11).

@Trilby, can you also please tell me how to write a fuction that would hide the dwm bar and also monocle (or fullscreen) it? (I'm a noob to C programming and dwm source code)

(i dont use floating mode, it just commented it in config.h . so i just use tile and monocle and toggle between them as i am mainly a keyboard user)

Also, can anyone tell me why the setfullscreen function given in vanilla dwm.c doesn't work. do we have specify some arguments for it. I tried Keybinding the function , but it just closes dwm.

also, is there any function in dwm.c which can send a window to the next tag?

Yes, natively:

config.h:

/* key definitions */
#define MODKEY Mod1Mask
#define MONKEY Mod4Mask
#define TAGKEYS(KEY,TAG) \
    { MODKEY,                       KEY,      view,           {.ui = 1 << TAG} }, \
    { MODKEY|ShiftMask,             KEY,      tag,            {.ui = 1 << TAG} },

Last line defines those buttons.

EDIT: Also, I think fullscreen (F11) has to be supported by the application itself. For example, most web browsers have it, but my file manager (Thunar) hasn't. As Trilby suggested, you can 'simulate' F11-behaviour for such applications by using Monocle and hiding the statusbar.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Take a look at https://raw.github.com/UliArmy/dwm-hg-p … reen.patch Download it and apply it. In the config.h you should add this

{ Mod4Mask,                   XK_f,               togglefullscreen, {0} },

Then you can toggle fullscreen with MOD4+f

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Thanks Friends ( Fellow Archers ) for Helping me out.

@Unia , I would like to clarify my question:

For eg. Suppose my selected window is in tag 1 and i want to move it to tag 2 only (Please note that I want the window to be moved to the next adjacent tag only and not any other tag) , so by pressing a keybinding such as (Mod4 + m) , i will move it to the next tag i.e.tag 2. So, basically, I want this functionality.

@Army, Many Thanks. The patch worked and it was the functionality that i wanted. Thanks again.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

It seems like you want to rewrite DWM to provide functionality that already exists.  What Unia pointed out will do just that; all that's required of you is to know what tag you're currently looking at.  "Next tag" is a relative term, depending on whether you're talking about moving left or right, and you'd need to write code to account for that ambiguity (what happens when a client gets moved to the right-most tag, and you wish to move it again--do you then write extra code to wrap it around to the far left, or extra code to move back to the left one tag at a time?).  The names you assign tags are absolute, and the client will only be assigned to the tag you want it to be.

EDIT: Incidentally, I believe Awesome has this feature in its config by default.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Thanks for Replying,@ANOKNUSA, so can you please tell me the code to provide me the so called "ambiguity" i want (I am great noob at programming. I have just started to learn C.Also, C is one of the reason i use dwm.). suppose i want to my selected client to next adjacent tag( please note only next adjacent tag) by pressing MOD4+n, then how should i modify the required files?

EDIT: I'm also asking this cause this is a functionality which I have seen in awesome only.

On the very first page a patch for just that was posted, called Cycle. The link is dead now though, so I'll keep on searching for you.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Hi Archers,

I'd like to have (as in my previous posts), tags and layouts lists on the right and other piped infos on the left. Obviously in the Dwm statusbar.

I got this piece of code:

[...]

void
drawbar(Monitor *m) {
    int x;
    unsigned int i, occ = 0, urg = 0;
    unsigned long *col;
    Client *c;

    dc.x = -20;
    x = dc.x;

/*  if(m == selmon) {  // status is only drawn on selected monitor */
        dc.w = x + TEXTW(stext);
	dc.x = m->ww - dc.w;
	if(dc.x > x) {
		dc.x = x;
		dc.w = m->ww - x;
	}
	drawcoloredtext(stext);
/*}
	else
		dc.x = m->ww; */
	if((dc.w = dc.x - x) > bh) {
		dc.x = x;
		if(m->sel) {
			col = m == selmon ? dc.colors[1] : dc.colors[0];
			drawtext(m->sel->name, col, True);
			drawsquare(m->sel->isfixed, m->sel->isfloating, col);
		}
		else
			drawtext(NULL, dc.colors[0], False);
	}
	for(c = m->clients; c; c = c->next) {
		occ |= c->tags;
		if(c->isurgent)
			urg |= c->tags;
	}
	dc.x = 1210;
	dc.w = blw = TEXTW(m->ltsymbol);
	drawtext(m->ltsymbol, dc.colors[7], True);
	dc.x += dc.w;
	for(i = 0; i < LENGTH(tags); i++) {
		dc.w = TEXTW(tags[i]);
		col = dc.colors[ (m->tagset[m->seltags] & 1 << i ? 1:(urg & 1 << i ? 2:0))];
		drawtext(tags[i], col, True);
		drawsquare(m == selmon && selmon->sel && selmon->sel->tags & 1 << i, occ & 1 << i, col);
		dc.x += dc.w;
	}
	XCopyArea(dpy, dc.drawable, m->barwin, dc.gc, 0, 0, m->ww, bh, 0, 0);
	XSync(dpy, False);
}

[...]

and this way quite everything work, because the only issue appear to be that clients titles are disapper.
I think that positioning piped infos at -20(px) make such titles (which usually preceed piped infos) disappear on the left of the screen.

I think it's because

[...] drawcoloredtext(stext); [...]

stands both for titles and for the other stuff.
But I'm not so good in C.
In fact, I'm also not sure that add pixels space in

[...] dc.x = 1210; [...]

is the right way to make tags and layouts to display on the left.

Stuff order I'd like to have, should be the following:
<piped infos><space><space><clients titles><space><space><layouts><space><space><tags list>

Suggestions? Helps? Always really appreciate.
Thank so much.
