X11::FullScreen - Create a full-screen window with Xlib
use X11::FullScreen; # Create the object my $xfs = X11::FullScreen->new( $display_string ); # Create a full-screen window $xfs->show(); # Return any new X event my $events = $xfs->check_event(); # Display a still image $xfs->display_still("/path/to/my.png"); # Sync the X display $xfs->sync(); # Close the window $xfs->close();
This module is used for creating simple borderless X windows that take up the entire screen. You can use it to display still images, or to show movies (with Video::Xine).
my $xfs = X11::FullScreen->new( $display_string );
Creates a new Display object.
$display_string should be a valid X11 display specifier, such as ':0.0'. This does not connect to the display. Call
show() before doing anything else.
Map the window and make it full screen.
Close the window.
my $window = $xfs->window();
Returns the Xlib window ID for our window.
Returns a pointer to the X connection.
Returns the number of the default screen on our display.
Returns the width in pixels of the display.
Returns the height in pixels of the displays.
Returns the pixel aspect of the screen.
Clears the window.
$xfs->display_still( 'my_file.png' );
Displays a still image. This can be any image format handled by imlib2.
Flushes the output buffer and waits until all all requests have been received and processed by the X server.
check_event( $event_mask )
my $event = check_event( $event_mask ); my $event_type = $event->get_type();
Checks for any new event which has occurred to the full screen window. If
$event_mask is not specified, defaults to ( ExposureMask | VisibilityChangeMask)
This returns an X11::FullScreen::Event object. You can access the event type by the get_type() method.
