10.3: Expose Corners
Authored by: aranor on Oct 27, '03 06:07:42PM

I figured out wvous-spring and wvous-spring-delay.

By default, if you drag a file (or probably any drag, but only tested with files from the Desktop) to an Exposé'd window (i.e. start drag, start Exposé, drag to window) and hover over a window for 1 second, it will flash and select itself. Just like spring-loaded folders (Space works for selecting the window as well).

If you do <tt>defaults write wvous-spring -bool false</tt> and restart the Dock, this behaviour disappears. To restore, do <tt>-bool true</tt> instead (or do a <tt>defaults delete wvous-spring</tt>).

To change the delay before the spring, set wvous-spring-delay. The value is an integer in milliseconds (i.e. 1000 == 1 second). For example, to set it to 2 seconds, type <tt>defaults write wvous-spring-delay -int 2000</tt>.

D'OH! I did it again. The relevant code snippets were:
defaults write wvous-spring -bool false
-bool true
defaults delete wvous-spring
defaults write wvous-spring-delay -int 2000
