lower — Change a window's position in the stacking order
Synopsis lower window
If the belowThis
argument is omitted then the command lowers window
so that it is below all of its siblings in the stacking order (it will be obscured by any siblings that overlap it and will not obscure any siblings). If belowThis
is specified then it must be the path name of a window that is either a sibling of window
or the descendant of a sibling of window
. In this case the lower
command will insert window
into the stacking order just below belowThis
(or the ancestor of belowThis
that is a sibling of window
); this could end up either raising or lowering window
All toplevel windows may be restacked with respect to each other, whatever their relative path names, but the window manager is not obligated to strictly honor requests to restack.
