Hello AfterStep users,

I'm trying to swallow multiple pagers into my Wharf, i had it working
before
with a older AS version, i lost that cfg, but i think it was basically:

*Wharf Pager0 - SwallowModule "AfterStep Pager" Pager 0 0 -geometry +0-0
*Wharf Pager1 - SwallowModule "AfterStep Pager" Pager 1 1 -geometry +0-0
*Wharf Pager2 - SwallowModule "AfterStep Pager" Pager 2 2 -geometry +0-0
*Wharf Pager3 - SwallowModule "AfterStep Pager" Pager 3 3 -geometry +0-0

the problem is that this way the pagers are swallowed in a random order
and i had to use a wrapper script like:

pager.sh:
#!/bin/bash
sleep $1 ; Pager $1 $1

*Wharf Pager0 - Swallow "AfterStep Pager" pager.sh 0 -geometry +0-0
*Wharf Pager1 - Swallow "AfterStep Pager" pager.sh 1 -geometry +0-0
*Wharf Pager2 - Swallow "AfterStep Pager" pager.sh 2 -geometry +0-0
*Wharf Pager3 - Swallow "AfterStep Pager" pager.sh 3 -geometry +0-0

to get a defined order....

but now i compiled 1.8.0, and it won't swallow more than one pager at
all,
the others are started but stay on my desktop as windows

did nobody ever try this before? or maybe i doing something wrong?

how about adding the standard "-name" parameter to Pager,
that would make it possible to use:

*Wharf Pager0 - Swallow "Pager0" Pager 0 0 -geometry +0-0 -name Pager0
*Wharf Pager1 - Swallow "Pager1" Pager 0 0 -geometry +0-0 -name Pager1
*Wharf Pager2 - Swallow "Pager2" Pager 0 0 -geometry +0-0 -name Pager2
*Wharf Pager3 - Swallow "Pager3" Pager 0 0 -geometry +0-0 -name Pager3


Thanks for any suggestions
