CLIM mail archive



Jeff Morrill defined the issue very clearly.  Let me note that there is
a compromise that may satisfy both Peters:  By default a CLIM application
should take on the behavior prescribed by the window manager.  But
in some cases the application programmer should be able to override those
defaults.  There are certainly going to be cases where the application
programmer has more specific knowledge of the detailed needs of his
application than did the person configuring the window manager for all

Another reason to allow control at the CLIM level is that some
window managers apparently do not let the user control some of the
behaviors we have been discussing.  For example, I use OLWM, and I can
find nothing in its documentation that allows me to configure the manner
in which popup windows are positioned.
