- Emacs bind key to prefix 3 answers
I'm trying to make Workgroups2 more convenient by displaying a list of workgroups in the mini-buffer on pressing the prefix key (C-c z), e.g.:
This makes it convenient to use the index 0-9 to switch workgroups:
(defvar wg-prefixed-map (wg-fill-keymap (make-sparse-keymap) ;; workgroup switching (kbd "C-j") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index (kbd "j") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index (kbd "0") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index-0 (kbd "1") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index-1 (kbd "2") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index-2 (kbd "3") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index-3 (kbd "4") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index-4 (kbd "5") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index-5 (kbd "6") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index-6 (kbd "7") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index-7 (kbd "8") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index-8 (kbd "9") 'wg-switch-to-workgroup-at-index-9 ) "The keymap that sits on `wg-prefix-key'.") (defun wg-fill-keymap (keymap &rest binds) "Return KEYMAP after defining in it all keybindings in BINDS." (while binds (define-key keymap (car binds) (cadr binds)) (setq binds (cddr binds))) keymap)
The list can be generated with:
Given C-c z as the prefix key for Workgroups2, is it possible to bind it to
so that it displays the list of workgroups in the mini-buffer? C-c z should still be the prefix after the binding.
This question is similar to Can the prefix of a key-sequence have an effect?. The comments suggest
keymapp. If either of these is useful, please kindly show how the above code can be modified to implement the function. Thank you.
