This command has two purposes: to bind a menu to a key or mouse
button, and to bind a sub menu into a menu. The formats for the
two purposes differ slightly. The
arguments are the same as for
is invoked if the user clicks a button to invoke the menu and
releases it immediately again (or hits the key rapidly twice if
the menu is bound to a key). If the default action is not
specified, double clicking on the menu does nothing. However, if
the menu begins with a menu item (i.e. not with a title or a
separator) and the default action is not given, double clicking
invokes the first item of the menu (but only if the pointer really
was over the item).
To bind a previously defined pop-up menu to a key or mouse button:
The following example binds mouse buttons 2 and 3 to a pop-up called "Window Ops". The menu pops up if the buttons 2 or 3 are pressed in the window frame, side-bar, or title-bar, with no modifiers (none of shift, control, or meta).
Pop-ups can be bound to keys through the use of the Key command. Pop-ups can be operated without using the mouse by binding to keys and operating via the up arrow, down arrow, and enter keys.
To bind a previously defined pop-up menu to another menu, for use as a sub menu:
The following example defines a sub menu "Quit-Verify" and binds it into a main menu, called "RootMenu":
AddToMenu Quit-Verify + "Really Quit Fvwm?" Title + "Yes, Really Quit" Quit + "Restart Fvwm" Restart + "Restart Fvwm 1.xx" Restart fvwm1 -s + "" Nop + "No, Don't Quit" Nop AddToMenu RootMenu "Root Menu" Title + "Open XTerm Window" Popup NewWindowMenu + "Login as Root" Exec exec xterm -T Root -n Root -e su - + "Login as Anyone" Popup AnyoneMenu + "Remote Hosts" Popup HostMenu + "" Nop + "X utilities" Popup Xutils + "" Nop + "Fvwm Modules" Popup Module-Popup + "Fvwm Window Ops" Popup Window-Ops + "" Nop + "Previous Focus" Prev (AcceptsFocus) Focus + "Next Focus" Next (AcceptsFocus) Focus + "" Nop + "Refresh screen" Refresh + "" Nop + "Reset X defaults" Exec xrdb -load \ $HOME/.Xdefaults + "" Nop + "" Nop + Quit Popup Quit-Verify
Popup differs from Menu in that pop-ups do not stay up if the user simply clicks. These are popup-menus, which are a little hard on the wrist. Menu menus stay up on a click action. See the Menu command for an explanation of the interactive behavior of menus. A menu can be open up to ten times at once, so a menu may even use itself or any of its predecessors as a sub menu.
