      1 moveresize
      2 ==========
      3 
      4 Description
      5 -----------
      6 This changes allows you to move and resize dwm's clients using keyboard
      7 bindings.
      8 
      9 Usage
     10 -----
     11 1. Put the following `moveresize()` function somewhere in your `dwm.c`,
     12   **after** the line which includes the config.h file:
     13 
     14 	static void
     15 	moveresize(const Arg *arg)
     16 	{
     17 		XEvent ev;
     18 		Monitor *m = selmon;
     19 
     20 		if(!(m->sel && arg && arg->v && m->sel->isfloating))
     21 			return;
     22 
     23 		resize(m->sel, m->sel->x + ((int *)arg->v)[0],
     24 			m->sel->y + ((int *)arg->v)[1],
     25 			m->sel->w + ((int *)arg->v)[2],
     26 			m->sel->h + ((int *)arg->v)[3],
     27 			True);
     28 
     29 		while(XCheckMaskEvent(dpy, EnterWindowMask, &ev));
     30 	}
     31 
     32 2. Add a moveresize() function definition in dwm.c below the line:
     33 	static void movemouse(const Arg *arg);
     34 
     35 	static void moveresize(const Arg *arg);
     36 
     37 3. Insert the bindings into the keys list. Here is an example which uses the
     38    arrow keys to move (mod+arrow) or resize (mod+shift+arrow) the selected
     39    client:
     40 
     41 	{ MODKEY,					XK_Down,	moveresize,		{.v = (int []){ 0, 25, 0, 0 }}},
     42 	{ MODKEY,					XK_Up,		moveresize,		{.v = (int []){ 0, -25, 0, 0 }}},
     43 	{ MODKEY,					XK_Right,	moveresize,		{.v = (int []){ 25, 0, 0, 0 }}},
     44 	{ MODKEY,					XK_Left,	moveresize,		{.v = (int []){ -25, 0, 0, 0 }}},
     45 	{ MODKEY|ShiftMask,			XK_Down,	moveresize,		{.v = (int []){ 0, 0, 0, 25 }}},
     46 	{ MODKEY|ShiftMask,			XK_Up,		moveresize,		{.v = (int []){ 0, 0, 0, -25 }}},
     47 	{ MODKEY|ShiftMask,			XK_Right,	moveresize,		{.v = (int []){ 0, 0, 25, 0 }}},
     48 	{ MODKEY|ShiftMask,			XK_Left,	moveresize,		{.v = (int []){ 0, 0, -25, 0 }}},
     49 
     50 In latest version you can also add the following bindings to move client to the edge of screen (mod+ctrl+arrow) or resize client to edge of screen (mod+shift+ctrl+arrow). Pressing resize to edge of screen towards the same direction a second time, will resize client back to original size.
     51 
     52 	{ MODKEY|ControlMask,           XK_Up,     moveresizeedge, {.v = "t"} },
     53 	{ MODKEY|ControlMask,           XK_Down,   moveresizeedge, {.v = "b"} },
     54 	{ MODKEY|ControlMask,           XK_Left,   moveresizeedge, {.v = "l"} },
     55 	{ MODKEY|ControlMask,           XK_Right,  moveresizeedge, {.v = "r"} },
     56 	{ MODKEY|ControlMask|ShiftMask, XK_Up,     moveresizeedge, {.v = "T"} },
     57 	{ MODKEY|ControlMask|ShiftMask, XK_Down,   moveresizeedge, {.v = "B"} },
     58 	{ MODKEY|ControlMask|ShiftMask, XK_Left,   moveresizeedge, {.v = "L"} },
     59 	{ MODKEY|ControlMask|ShiftMask, XK_Right,  moveresizeedge, {.v = "R"} },
     60 
     61 If you want to automatically toggle the client floating when move/resize,
     62 then replace the second if statement in the moveresize function with this code:
     63 
     64 	if (!(m->sel && arg && arg->v))
     65 		return;
     66 	if (m->lt[m->sellt]->arrange && !m->sel->isfloating)
     67 		togglefloating(NULL);
     68

     70 ----------
     71 From dwm 6.0 onward there's the following patch which is aware of the screen
     72 sizes in a multi monitor setup. A second patch allows you to maximize windows.
