Multimonitor: How do I show the currently selected views instead of the most recent selection.

Dec 14, 2012 at 6:24 PM

Right now in my 2 monitor setup, the status bar shows highlighted only the most recently selected workspace. Is there a way I can make it show the two currently selected workspaces in different colors perhaps? If not, could you give me some guidelines as to how to incorporate a feature like this?

Hello, sorry for the late reply. I'm not exactly sure what you mean but I think this is already there even in the default config. Look for these four:

highlightedForegroundColor = Color.DarkOrange,
highlightedBackgroundColor = Color.Black,
highlightedInactiveForegroundColor = Color.LightSeaGreen,
highlightedInactiveBackgroundColor = Color.Black

The Inactive one is the one that is visible on another monitor but is not the currently active one. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply! You are correct, of course. I was getting tripped up by the default workspacesWidgetForegroundColors.
