Required methods

Activates the default widget for the window, unless the current focused widget has been configured to receive the default action (see WidgetExt::set_receives_default()), in which case the focused widget is activated.

Returns

true if a widget got activated.

Activates the current focused widget within the window.

Returns

true if a widget got activated.

Activates mnemonics and accelerators for this Window. This is normally called by the default ::key_press_event handler for toplevel windows, however in some cases it may be useful to call this directly when overriding the standard key handling for a toplevel window.

event

a gdk::EventKey

Returns

true if a mnemonic or accelerator was found and activated.

Associate accel_group with self, such that calling accel_groups_activate() on self will activate accelerators in accel_group.

accel_group

a AccelGroup

Adds a mnemonic to this window.

keyval

the mnemonic

target

the widget that gets activated by the mnemonic

Starts moving a window. This function is used if an application has window movement grips. When GDK can support it, the window movement will be done using the standard mechanism for the [window manager][gtk-X11-arch] or windowing system. Otherwise, GDK will try to emulate window movement, potentially not all that well, depending on the windowing system.

button

mouse button that initiated the drag

root_x

X position where the user clicked to initiate the drag, in root window coordinates

root_y

Y position where the user clicked to initiate the drag

timestamp

timestamp from the click event that initiated the drag

Starts resizing a window. This function is used if an application has window resizing controls. When GDK can support it, the resize will be done using the standard mechanism for the [window manager][gtk-X11-arch] or windowing system. Otherwise, GDK will try to emulate window resizing, potentially not all that well, depending on the windowing system.

edge

position of the resize control

button

mouse button that initiated the drag

root_x

X position where the user clicked to initiate the drag, in root window coordinates

root_y

Y position where the user clicked to initiate the drag

timestamp

timestamp from the click event that initiated the drag

Requests that the window is closed, similar to what happens when a window manager close button is clicked.

This function can be used with close buttons in custom titlebars.

Asks to deiconify (i.e. unminimize) the specified self. Note that you shouldn’t assume the window is definitely deiconified afterward, because other entities (e.g. the user or [window manager][gtk-X11-arch])) could iconify it again before your code which assumes deiconification gets to run.

You can track iconification via the “window-state-event” signal on Widget.

Asks to place self in the fullscreen state. Note that you shouldn’t assume the window is definitely full screen afterward, because other entities (e.g. the user or [window manager][gtk-X11-arch]) could unfullscreen it again, and not all window managers honor requests to fullscreen windows. But normally the window will end up fullscreen. Just don’t write code that crashes if not.

You can track the fullscreen state via the “window-state-event” signal on Widget.

Asks to place self in the fullscreen state. Note that you shouldn’t assume the window is definitely full screen afterward.

You can track the fullscreen state via the “window-state-event” signal on Widget.

screen

a gdk::Screen to draw to

monitor

which monitor to go fullscreen on

Gets the value set by set_accept_focus().

a Application, or None

Fetches the attach widget for this window. See set_attached_to().

Returns

the widget where the window is attached, or None if the window is not attached to any widget.

Returns whether the window has been set to have decorations such as a title bar via set_decorated().

Returns

true if the window has been set to have decorations

Gets the default size of the window. A value of -1 for the width or height indicates that a default size has not been explicitly set for that dimension, so the “natural” size of the window will be used.

height

location to store the default height, or None

Returns the default widget for self. See set_default() for more details.

Returns

the default widget, or None if there is none.

Returns whether the window has been set to have a close button via set_deletable().

Returns

true if the window has been set to have a close button

Returns whether the window will be destroyed with its transient parent. See gtk_window_set_destroy_with_parent ().

Returns

true if the window will be destroyed with its transient parent.

Retrieves the current focused widget within the window. Note that this is the widget that would have the focus if the toplevel window focused; if the toplevel window is not focused then gtk_widget_has_focus (widget) will not be true for the widget.

Returns

the currently focused widget, or None if there is none.

Gets the value set by set_focus_on_map().

Returns

true if window should receive the input focus when mapped.

Gets the value of the property::Window::focus-visible property.

true if “focus rectangles” are supposed to be visible in this window.

Gets the value set by set_gravity().

Returns

window gravity

Returns the group for self or the default group, if self is None or if self does not have an explicit window group.

Returns

the WindowGroup for a window or the default group

Returns whether the window has requested to have its titlebar hidden when maximized. See gtk_window_set_hide_titlebar_when_maximized ().

Returns

true if the window has requested to have its titlebar hidden when maximized

Gets the value set by set_icon() (or if you’ve called set_icon_list(), gets the first icon in the icon list).

Returns

icon for window or None if none

Retrieves the list of icons set by set_icon_list(). The list is copied, but the reference count on each member won’t be incremented.

Returns

copy of window’s icon list

Returns the name of the themed icon for the window, see set_icon_name().

Returns

the icon name or None if the window has no themed icon

Returns the mnemonic modifier for this window. See set_mnemonic_modifier().

Returns

the modifier mask used to activate mnemonics on this window.

Gets the value of the property::Window::mnemonics-visible property.

Returns

true if mnemonics are supposed to be visible in this window.

Returns whether the window is modal. See set_modal().

Returns

true if the window is set to be modal and establishes a grab when shown

This function returns the position you need to pass to move_() to keep self in its current position. This means that the meaning of the returned value varies with window gravity. See move_() for more details.

The reliability of this function depends on the windowing system currently in use. Some windowing systems, such as Wayland, do not support a global coordinate system, and thus the position of the window will always be (0, 0). Others, like X11, do not have a reliable way to obtain the geometry of the decorations of a window if they are provided by the window manager. Additionally, on X11, window manager have been known to mismanage window gravity, which result in windows moving even if you use the coordinates of the current position as returned by this function.

If you haven’t changed the window gravity, its gravity will be gdk::Gravity::NorthWest. This means that position() gets the position of the top-left corner of the window manager frame for the window. move_() sets the position of this same top-left corner.

If a window has gravity gdk::Gravity::Static the window manager frame is not relevant, and thus position() will always produce accurate results. However you can’t use static gravity to do things like place a window in a corner of the screen, because static gravity ignores the window manager decorations.

Ideally, this function should return appropriate values if the window has client side decorations, assuming that the windowing system supports global coordinates.

In practice, saving the window position should not be left to applications, as they lack enough knowledge of the windowing system and the window manager state to effectively do so. The appropriate way to implement saving the window position is to use a platform-specific protocol, wherever that is available.

Returns
root_x

return location for X coordinate of gravity-determined reference point, or None

root_y

return location for Y coordinate of gravity-determined reference point, or None

Gets the value set by set_resizable().

Returns

true if the user can resize the window

Returns the role of the window. See set_role() for further explanation.

Returns

the role of the window if set, or None. The returned is owned by the widget and must not be modified or freed.

Obtains the current size of self.

If self is not visible on screen, this function return the size GTK+ will suggest to the [window manager][gtk-X11-arch] for the initial window size (but this is not reliably the same as the size the window manager will actually select). See: set_default_size().

Depending on the windowing system and the window manager constraints, the size returned by this function may not match the size set using resize(); additionally, since resize() may be implemented as an asynchronous operation, GTK+ cannot guarantee in any way that this code:

⚠️ The following code is in C ⚠️

  // width and height are set elsewhere
  gtk_window_resize (window, width, height);

  int new_width, new_height;
  gtk_window_get_size (window, &new_width, &new_height);

will result in new_width and new_height matching width and height, respectively.

This function will return the logical size of the Window, excluding the widgets used in client side decorations; there is, however, no guarantee that the result will be completely accurate because client side decoration may include widgets that depend on the user preferences and that may not be visibile at the time you call this function.

The dimensions returned by this function are suitable for being stored across sessions; use set_default_size() to restore them when before showing the window.

To avoid potential race conditions, you should only call this function in response to a size change notification, for instance inside a handler for the signal::Widget::size-allocate signal, or inside a handler for the signal::Widget::configure-event signal:

⚠️ The following code is in C ⚠️

static void
on_size_allocate (GtkWidget *widget, GtkAllocation *allocation)
{
  int new_width, new_height;

  gtk_window_get_size (GTK_WINDOW (widget), &new_width, &new_height);

  ...
}

Note that, if you connect to the signal::Widget::size-allocate signal, you should not use the dimensions of the GtkAllocation passed to the signal handler, as the allocation may contain client side decorations added by GTK+, depending on the windowing system in use.

If you are getting a window size in order to position the window on the screen, you should, instead, simply set the window’s semantic type with set_type_hint(), which allows the window manager to e.g. center dialogs. Also, if you set the transient parent of dialogs with set_transient_for() window managers will often center the dialog over its parent window. It’s much preferred to let the window manager handle these cases rather than doing it yourself, because all apps will behave consistently and according to user or system preferences, if the window manager handles it. Also, the window manager can take into account the size of the window decorations and border that it may add, and of which GTK+ has no knowledge. Additionally, positioning windows in global screen coordinates may not be allowed by the windowing system. For more information, see: set_position().

Returns
width

return location for width, or None

height

return location for height, or None

Gets the value set by set_skip_pager_hint().

Returns

true if window shouldn’t be in pager

Gets the value set by set_skip_taskbar_hint()

Returns

true if window shouldn’t be in taskbar

Retrieves the title of the window. See set_title().

Returns

the title of the window, or None if none has been set explicitly. The returned string is owned by the widget and must not be modified or freed.

Returns the custom titlebar that has been set with set_titlebar().

Returns

the custom titlebar, or None

Fetches the transient parent for this window. See set_transient_for().

Returns

the transient parent for this window, or None if no transient parent has been set.

Gets the type hint for this window. See set_type_hint().

Returns

the type hint for self.

Gets the value set by set_urgency_hint()

Returns

true if window is urgent

Gets the type of the window. See WindowType.

Returns

the type of the window

Returns whether self has an explicit window group.

Returns

true if self has an explicit window group.

Since 2.22

Returns whether the input focus is within this GtkWindow. For real toplevel windows, this is identical to is_active(), but for embedded windows, like Plug, the results will differ.

Returns

true if the input focus is within this GtkWindow

Asks to iconify (i.e. minimize) the specified self. Note that you shouldn’t assume the window is definitely iconified afterward, because other entities (e.g. the user or [window manager][gtk-X11-arch]) could deiconify it again, or there may not be a window manager in which case iconification isn’t possible, etc. But normally the window will end up iconified. Just don’t write code that crashes if not.

It’s permitted to call this function before showing a window, in which case the window will be iconified before it ever appears onscreen.

You can track iconification via the “window-state-event” signal on Widget.

Returns whether the window is part of the current active toplevel. (That is, the toplevel window receiving keystrokes.) The return value is true if the window is active toplevel itself, but also if it is, say, a Plug embedded in the active toplevel. You might use this function if you wanted to draw a widget differently in an active window from a widget in an inactive window. See has_toplevel_focus()

Returns

true if the window part of the current active window.

Retrieves the current maximized state of self.

Note that since maximization is ultimately handled by the window manager and happens asynchronously to an application request, you shouldn’t assume the return value of this function changing immediately (or at all), as an effect of calling maximize() or unmaximize().

Returns

whether the window has a maximized state.

Asks to maximize self, so that it becomes full-screen. Note that you shouldn’t assume the window is definitely maximized afterward, because other entities (e.g. the user or [window manager][gtk-X11-arch]) could unmaximize it again, and not all window managers support maximization. But normally the window will end up maximized. Just don’t write code that crashes if not.

It’s permitted to call this function before showing a window, in which case the window will be maximized when it appears onscreen initially.

You can track maximization via the “window-state-event” signal on Widget, or by listening to notifications on the property::Window::is-maximized property.

Activates the targets associated with the mnemonic.

keyval

the mnemonic

modifier

the modifiers

Returns

true if the activation is done.

Parses a standard X Window System geometry string - see the manual page for X (type “man X”) for details on this. parse_geometry() does work on all GTK+ ports including Win32 but is primarily intended for an X environment.

If either a size or a position can be extracted from the geometry string, parse_geometry() returns true and calls set_default_size() and/or move_() to resize/move the window.

If parse_geometry() returns true, it will also set the gdk::WindowHints::USER_POS and/or gdk::WindowHints::USER_SIZE hints indicating to the window manager that the size/position of the window was user-specified. This causes most window managers to honor the geometry.

Note that for parse_geometry() to work as expected, it has to be called when the window has its “final” size, i.e. after calling WidgetExt::show_all() on the contents and set_geometry_hints() on the window.

⚠️ The following code is in C ⚠️

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

geometry

geometry string

Returns

Presents a window to the user. This function should not be used as when it is called, it is too late to gather a valid timestamp to allow focus stealing prevention to work correctly.

Presents a window to the user. This may mean raising the window in the stacking order, deiconifying it, moving it to the current desktop, and/or giving it the keyboard focus, possibly dependent on the user’s platform, window manager, and preferences.

If self is hidden, this function calls WidgetExt::show() as well.

This function should be used when the user tries to open a window that’s already open. Say for example the preferences dialog is currently open, and the user chooses Preferences from the menu a second time; use present() to move the already-open dialog where the user can see it.

Presents a window to the user in response to a user interaction. The timestamp should be gathered when the window was requested to be shown (when clicking a link for example), rather than once the window is ready to be shown.

timestamp

the timestamp of the user interaction (typically a button or key press event) which triggered this call

Propagate a key press or release event to the focus widget and up the focus container chain until a widget handles event. This is normally called by the default ::key_press_event and ::key_release_event handlers for toplevel windows, however in some cases it may be useful to call this directly when overriding the standard key handling for a toplevel window.

event

a gdk::EventKey

Returns

true if a widget in the focus chain handled the event.

Reverses the effects of add_accel_group().

accel_group

a AccelGroup

Removes a mnemonic from this window.

keyval

the mnemonic

target

the widget that gets activated by the mnemonic

Resizes the window as if the user had done so, obeying geometry constraints. The default geometry constraint is that windows may not be smaller than their size request; to override this constraint, call WidgetExt::set_size_request() to set the window’s request to a smaller value.

If resize() is called before showing a window for the first time, it overrides any default size set with set_default_size().

Windows may not be resized smaller than 1 by 1 pixels.

When using client side decorations, GTK+ will do its best to adjust the given size so that the resulting window size matches the requested size without the title bar, borders and shadows added for the client side decorations, but there is no guarantee that the result will be totally accurate because these widgets added for client side decorations depend on the theme and may not be realized or visible at the time resize() is issued.

If the GtkWindow has a titlebar widget (see set_titlebar()), then typically, resize() will compensate for the height of the titlebar widget only if the height is known when the resulting GtkWindow configuration is issued. For example, if new widgets are added after the GtkWindow configuration and cause the titlebar widget to grow in height, this will result in a window content smaller that specified by resize() and not a larger window.

width

width in pixels to resize the window to

height

height in pixels to resize the window to

Like resize(), but width and height are interpreted in terms of the base size and increment set with gtk_window_set_geometry_hints.

Deprecated since 3.20

This function does nothing. Use resize() and compute the geometry yourself.

width

width in resize increments to resize the window to

height

height in resize increments to resize the window to

Windows may set a hint asking the desktop environment not to receive the input focus. This function sets this hint.

setting

true to let this window receive input focus

Sets or unsets the Application associated with the window.

The application will be kept alive for at least as long as it has any windows associated with it (see [ApplicationExtManual::hold()][crate::gio::prelude::ApplicationExtManual::hold()] for a way to keep it alive without windows).

Normally, the connection between the application and the window will remain until the window is destroyed, but you can explicitly remove it by setting the application to None.

This is equivalent to calling GtkApplicationExt::remove_window() and/or GtkApplicationExt::add_window() on the old/new applications as relevant.

application

a Application, or None to unset

Marks self as attached to attach_widget. This creates a logical binding between the window and the widget it belongs to, which is used by GTK+ to propagate information such as styling or accessibility to self as if it was a children of attach_widget.

Examples of places where specifying this relation is useful are for instance a Menu created by a ComboBox, a completion popup window created by Entry or a typeahead search entry created by TreeView.

Note that this function should not be confused with set_transient_for(), which specifies a window manager relation between two toplevels instead.

Passing None for attach_widget detaches the window.

attach_widget

a Widget, or None

By default, windows are decorated with a title bar, resize controls, etc. Some [window managers][gtk-X11-arch] allow GTK+ to disable these decorations, creating a borderless window. If you set the decorated property to false using this function, GTK+ will do its best to convince the window manager not to decorate the window. Depending on the system, this function may not have any effect when called on a window that is already visible, so you should call it before calling WidgetExt::show().

On Windows, this function always works, since there’s no window manager policy involved.

setting

true to decorate the window

The default widget is the widget that’s activated when the user presses Enter in a dialog (for example). This function sets or unsets the default widget for a Window. When setting (rather than unsetting) the default widget it’s generally easier to call WidgetExt::grab_default() on the widget. Before making a widget the default widget, you must call WidgetExt::set_can_default() on the widget you’d like to make the default.

default_widget

widget to be the default, or None to unset the default widget for the toplevel

Like set_default_size(), but width and height are interpreted in terms of the base size and increment set with gtk_window_set_geometry_hints.

Deprecated since 3.20

This function does nothing. If you want to set a default size, use set_default_size() instead.

width

width in resize increments, or -1 to unset the default width

height

height in resize increments, or -1 to unset the default height

Sets the default size of a window. If the window’s “natural” size (its size request) is larger than the default, the default will be ignored. More generally, if the default size does not obey the geometry hints for the window (set_geometry_hints() can be used to set these explicitly), the default size will be clamped to the nearest permitted size.

Unlike WidgetExt::set_size_request(), which sets a size request for a widget and thus would keep users from shrinking the window, this function only sets the initial size, just as if the user had resized the window themselves. Users can still shrink the window again as they normally would. Setting a default size of -1 means to use the “natural” default size (the size request of the window).

For more control over a window’s initial size and how resizing works, investigate set_geometry_hints().

For some uses, resize() is a more appropriate function. resize() changes the current size of the window, rather than the size to be used on initial display. resize() always affects the window itself, not the geometry widget.

The default size of a window only affects the first time a window is shown; if a window is hidden and re-shown, it will remember the size it had prior to hiding, rather than using the default size.

Windows can’t actually be 0x0 in size, they must be at least 1x1, but passing 0 for width and height is OK, resulting in a 1x1 default size.

If you use this function to reestablish a previously saved window size, note that the appropriate size to save is the one returned by size(). Using the window allocation directly will not work in all circumstances and can lead to growing or shrinking windows.

width

width in pixels, or -1 to unset the default width

height

height in pixels, or -1 to unset the default height

By default, windows have a close button in the window frame. Some [window managers][gtk-X11-arch] allow GTK+ to disable this button. If you set the deletable property to false using this function, GTK+ will do its best to convince the window manager not to show a close button. Depending on the system, this function may not have any effect when called on a window that is already visible, so you should call it before calling WidgetExt::show().

On Windows, this function always works, since there’s no window manager policy involved.

setting

true to decorate the window as deletable

If setting is true, then destroying the transient parent of self will also destroy self itself. This is useful for dialogs that shouldn’t persist beyond the lifetime of the main window they’re associated with, for example.

setting

whether to destroy self with its transient parent

If focus is not the current focus widget, and is focusable, sets it as the focus widget for the window. If focus is None, unsets the focus widget for this window. To set the focus to a particular widget in the toplevel, it is usually more convenient to use WidgetExt::grab_focus() instead of this function.

focus

widget to be the new focus widget, or None to unset any focus widget for the toplevel window.

Windows may set a hint asking the desktop environment not to receive the input focus when the window is mapped. This function sets this hint.

setting

true to let this window receive input focus on map

Sets the property::Window::focus-visible property.

setting

the new value

This function sets up hints about how a window can be resized by the user. You can set a minimum and maximum size; allowed resize increments (e.g. for xterm, you can only resize by the size of a character); aspect ratios; and more. See the gdk::Geometry struct.

geometry_widget

widget the geometry hints used to be applied to or None. Since 3.20 this argument is ignored and GTK behaves as if None was set.

geometry

struct containing geometry information or None

geom_mask

mask indicating which struct fields should be paid attention to

Window gravity defines the meaning of coordinates passed to move_(). See move_() and gdk::Gravity for more details.

The default window gravity is gdk::Gravity::NorthWest which will typically “do what you mean.”

gravity

window gravity

Tells GTK+ whether to drop its extra reference to the window when gtk_widget_destroy() is called.

This function is only exported for the benefit of language bindings which may need to keep the window alive until their wrapper object is garbage collected. There is no justification for ever calling this function in an application.

setting

the new value

If setting is true, then self will request that it’s titlebar should be hidden when maximized. This is useful for windows that don’t convey any information other than the application name in the titlebar, to put the available screen space to better use. If the underlying window system does not support the request, the setting will not have any effect.

Note that custom titlebars set with set_titlebar() are not affected by this. The application is in full control of their content and visibility anyway.

setting

whether to hide the titlebar when self is maximized

Sets up the icon representing a Window. This icon is used when the window is minimized (also known as iconified). Some window managers or desktop environments may also place it in the window frame, or display it in other contexts. On others, the icon is not used at all, so your mileage may vary.

The icon should be provided in whatever size it was naturally drawn; that is, don’t scale the image before passing it to GTK+. Scaling is postponed until the last minute, when the desired final size is known, to allow best quality.

If you have your icon hand-drawn in multiple sizes, use set_icon_list(). Then the best size will be used.

This function is equivalent to calling set_icon_list() with a 1-element list.

See also Window::set_default_icon_list() to set the icon for all windows in your application in one go.

icon

icon image, or None

Sets the icon for self. Warns on failure if err is None.

This function is equivalent to calling set_icon() with a pixbuf created by loading the image from filename.

filename

location of icon file

Returns

true if setting the icon succeeded.
