can I call the Compositor tab of Window manager tweaks directly?

For a new MX tool, we would like to have a button that when clicked would open up the app to the Compositor tab--but have not been able to figure out the command to do that. Tried things such as this:

xfwm4-tweaks-settings --compositor

also with --tab=compositor.

Is it possible?

Re: can I call the Compositor tab of Window manager tweaks directly?

I can think of a few options here, Jerry:

1. Use xdotool:

(xfwm4-tweaks-settings &) && sleep .5 && xdotool key Left

2. Use the Xfce4-Composite Editor app.

3. Create something of your own using yad and directly manipulate the relevent xfconf settings in the xfwm4 channel.

Thanks, ToZ! I was thinking of the third option myself b/c I think the result would be the cleanest.

We'll snoop around...
