KWin Rules Window Matching
Thetab provides a series of matching-criteria fields used to identify application windows:
- match this window and all its children windows.
- - restrict the match to the function of the window (e.g. a main window, a chat window, etc.)
- - restrict the match to the type of window: Normal Window, Dialog Window, etc.
- - restrict the match to the title of the window.
- - restrict the match to the host name associated with the window.
For each field, the following operators can be applied against the field value:
- - case insensitive.
- - Qt's regular expressions are implemented. For additional information, web search qt regex nokia.
