Advanced Examples

Iterate all widgets and print their config values

var allDesktops = desktops();
for (var desktopIndex = 0; desktopIndex < allDesktops.length; desktopIndex++) {
    var d = allDesktops[desktopIndex];
    print(d);
    
    var widgets = d.widgets();
    for (var widgetIndex = 0; widgetIndex < widgets.length; widgetIndex++) {
        var w = widgets[widgetIndex];
        print("\t" + w.type + ": ");
        
        var configGroups = w.configGroups.concat([]); // concat is used to clone the array
        for (var groupIndex = 0; groupIndex < configGroups.length; groupIndex++) {
            var g = configGroups[groupIndex];
            print("\t\t" + g + ": ");
            w.currentConfigGroup = [g];
            
            for (var keyIndex = 0; keyIndex < w.configKeys.length; keyIndex++) {
                var configKey = w.configKeys[keyIndex];
                print("\t\t\t" + configKey + ": " + w.readConfig(configKey));
            }
        }
    }
}

var allPanels = panels();
for (var panelIndex = 0; panelIndex < allPanels.length; panelIndex++) {
    var p = allPanels[panelIndex];
    print(p);
    
    var widgets = p.widgets();
    for (var widgetIndex = 0; widgetIndex < widgets.length; widgetIndex++) {
        var w = widgets[widgetIndex];
        print("\t" + w.type + ": ");
        
        var configGroups = w.configGroups.concat([]); // concat is used to clone the array
        for (var groupIndex = 0; groupIndex < configGroups.length; groupIndex++) {
            var g = configGroups[groupIndex];
            print("\t\t" + g + ": ");
            w.currentConfigGroup = [g];
            
            for (var keyIndex = 0; keyIndex < w.configKeys.length; keyIndex++) {
                var configKey = w.configKeys[keyIndex];
                print("\t\t\t" + configKey + ": " + w.readConfig(configKey));
            }
        }
    }
}


Adding a widget to the System Tray

var widgetName = "org.kde.plasma.printmanager";

for (i = 0; i < panelIds.length; ++i) { //search through the panels
    panel = panelById(pids[i]);
    if (!panel) continue;

    for (tmpIndex = 0; tmpIndex < panel.widgetIds.length; tmpIndex ++) {
        appletWidget = panel.widgetById(panel.widgetIds[tmpIndex]);

        if (appletWidget.type == "org.kde.plasma.systemtray") {
            systemtrayId = appletWidget.readConfig("SystrayContainmentId");
            if (systemtrayId) {
               print("systemtray id: " + systemtrayId)
               var systray = desktopById(systemtrayId);
               systray.currentConfigGroup = ["General"];
               var extraItems = systray.readConfig("extraItems").split(",");
               if (extraItems.indexOf(widgetName) === -1) {
                   extraItems.push(widgetName)
                   systray.writeConfig("extraItems", extraItems);
                   systray.reloadConfig();
               }
            }          
        }
    }
}
