When a bell character is sent to a background window,
screendisplays a notification in the message line. The notification message can be re-defined by this command. Each occurrence of ‘%’ in message is replaced by the number of the window to which a bell has been sent, and each occurrence of ‘^G’ is replaced by the definition for bell in your termcap (usually an audible bell). The default message is'Bell in window %n'
An empty message can be supplied to the
bell_msgcommand to suppress output of a message line (
bell_msg ""). Without parameter, the current message is shown.
Sets or toggles the visual bell setting for the current window. If
vbellis switched to ‘on’, but your terminal does not support a visual bell, the visual bell message is displayed in the status line when the bell character is received. Visual bell support of a terminal is defined by the termcap variable
vb. See Visual Bell, for more information on visual bells. The equivalent terminfo capability is
vbellis ‘off’, thus the audible bell is used.
Sets the visual bell message. Message is printed to the status line if the window receives a bell character (^G),
vbellis set to ‘on’ and the terminal does not support a visual bell. The default message is ‘Wuff, Wuff!!’. Without parameter, the current message is shown.
