obxprop (1) - Linux Manuals


openbox --- A minimalistic, highly configurable, next generation window manager with extensive standards support.


openbox [--help] [--display DISPLAY] [--id ID] [--root] [--] [PROPERTY ...]


obxprop is a tool for displaying the properties on an x window.

This tool has a similar functionality to xprop, but obxprop allows you to see UTF-8 strings as text.

You may use the --id option to specify a window identifier, otherwise obxprop will allow you to select a window by clicking on it.

Primarily, this tool exists for Openbox users to see the value of the _OB_APP_NAME, _OB_APP_CLASS, _OB_APP_ROLE, and _OB_APP_TYPE properties, which Openbox uses for matching windows against user-defined application rules.


These are the possible options that openbox accepts:

Show a summary of the options available.
--display DISPLAY
Specify the X display to use.
--id ID
Specify the window identifier for the window whose properties will be displayed.

Similar to xprop, you may pass one or more property names to have openbox limit its output to only the properties requested.
