pub struct WidgetPath { /* private fields */ }
Expand description

GtkWidgetPath is a boxed type that represents a widget hierarchy from the topmost widget, typically a toplevel, to any child. This widget path abstraction is used in StyleContext on behalf of the real widget in order to query style information.

If you are using GTK+ widgets, you probably will not need to use this API directly, as there is WidgetExt::path(), and the style context returned by WidgetExt::style_context() will be automatically updated on widget hierarchy changes.

The widget path generation is generally simple:

Defining a button within a window

⚠️ The following code is in C ⚠️

{
  GtkWidgetPath *path;

  path = gtk_widget_path_new ();
  gtk_widget_path_append_type (path, GTK_TYPE_WINDOW);
  gtk_widget_path_append_type (path, GTK_TYPE_BUTTON);
}

Although more complex information, such as widget names, or different classes (property that may be used by other widget types) and intermediate regions may be included:

Defining the first tab widget in a notebook

⚠️ The following code is in C ⚠️

{
  GtkWidgetPath *path;
  guint pos;

  path = gtk_widget_path_new ();

  pos = gtk_widget_path_append_type (path, GTK_TYPE_NOTEBOOK);
  gtk_widget_path_iter_add_region (path, pos, "tab", GTK_REGION_EVEN | GTK_REGION_FIRST);

  pos = gtk_widget_path_append_type (path, GTK_TYPE_LABEL);
  gtk_widget_path_iter_set_name (path, pos, "first tab label");
}

All this information will be used to match the style information that applies to the described widget.

Implementations

Returns an empty widget path.

Returns

A newly created, empty, WidgetPath

Appends the data from widget to the widget hierarchy represented by self. This function is a shortcut for adding information from widget to the given self. This includes setting the name or adding the style classes from widget.

widget

the widget to append to the widget path

Returns

the position where the data was inserted

Appends a widget type to the widget hierarchy represented by self.

type_

widget type to append

Returns

the position where the element was inserted

Appends a widget type with all its siblings to the widget hierarchy represented by self. Using this function instead of append_type() will allow the CSS theming to use sibling matches in selectors and apply :nth-child() pseudo classes. In turn, it requires a lot more care in widget implementations as widgets need to make sure to call WidgetExt::reset_style() on all involved widgets when the siblings path changes.

siblings

a widget path describing a list of siblings. This path may not contain any siblings itself and it must not be modified afterwards.

sibling_index

index into siblings for where the added element is positioned.

Returns

the position where the element was inserted.

Returns the topmost object type, that is, the object type this path is representing.

Returns

The object type

Returns true if any of the parents of the widget represented in self is of type type_, or any subtype of it.

type_

widget type to check in parents

Returns

true if any parent is of type type_

Returns true if the widget type represented by this path is type_, or a subtype of it.

type_

widget type to match

Returns

true if the widget represented by self is of type type_

Adds the class name to the widget at position pos in the hierarchy defined in self. See StyleContextExt::add_class().

pos

position to modify, -1 for the path head

name

a class name

Removes all classes from the widget at position pos in the hierarchy defined in self.

pos

position to modify, -1 for the path head

Returns the name corresponding to the widget found at the position pos in the widget hierarchy defined by self

pos

position to get the widget name for, -1 for the path head

Returns

The widget name, or None if none was set.

This is supported on crate feature v3_20 only.

Returns the object name that is at position pos in the widget hierarchy defined in self.

pos

position to get the object name for, -1 for the path head

Returns

the name or None

Returns the object GType that is at position pos in the widget hierarchy defined in self.

pos

position to get the object type for, -1 for the path head

Returns

a widget type

Returns the index into the list of siblings for the element at pos as returned by iter_get_siblings(). If that function would return None because the element at pos has no siblings, this function will return 0.

pos

position to get the sibling index for, -1 for the path head

Returns

0 or the index into the list of siblings for the element at pos.

Returns the list of siblings for the element at pos. If the element was not added with siblings, None is returned.

pos

position to get the siblings for, -1 for the path head

Returns

None or the list of siblings for the element at pos.

Returns the state flags corresponding to the widget found at the position pos in the widget hierarchy defined by self

pos

position to get the state for, -1 for the path head

Returns

The state flags

Returns true if the widget at position pos has the class name defined, false otherwise.

pos

position to query, -1 for the path head

name

class name

Returns

true if the class name is defined for the widget at pos

Returns true if the widget at position pos has the name name, false otherwise.

pos

position to query, -1 for the path head

name

a widget name

Returns

true if the widget at pos has this name

See iter_has_class(). This is a version that operates with GQuarks.

pos

position to query, -1 for the path head

qname

class name as a GQuark

Returns

true if the widget at pos has the class defined.

See iter_has_name(). This is a version that operates on GQuarks.

pos

position to query, -1 for the path head

qname

widget name as a GQuark

Returns

true if the widget at pos has this name

Returns a list with all the class names defined for the widget at position pos in the hierarchy defined in self.

pos

position to query, -1 for the path head

Returns

The list of classes, This is a list of strings, the GSList contents are owned by GTK+, but you should use g_slist_free() to free the list itself.

Removes the class name from the widget at position pos in the hierarchy defined in self.

pos

position to modify, -1 for the path head

name

class name

Sets the widget name for the widget found at position pos in the widget hierarchy defined by self.

pos

position to modify, -1 for the path head

name

widget name

This is supported on crate feature v3_20 only.

Sets the object name for a given position in the widget hierarchy defined by self.

When set, the object name overrides the object type when matching CSS.

pos

position to modify, -1 for the path head

name

object name to set or None to unset

Sets the object type for a given position in the widget hierarchy defined by self.

pos

position to modify, -1 for the path head

type_

object type to set

Sets the widget name for the widget found at position pos in the widget hierarchy defined by self.

If you want to update just a single state flag, you need to do this manually, as this function updates all state flags.

Setting a flag

⚠️ The following code is in C ⚠️

gtk_widget_path_iter_set_state (path, pos, gtk_widget_path_iter_get_state (path, pos) | flag);
Unsetting a flag

⚠️ The following code is in C ⚠️

gtk_widget_path_iter_set_state (path, pos, gtk_widget_path_iter_get_state (path, pos) & ~flag);
pos

position to modify, -1 for the path head

state

state flags

Returns the number of Widget GTypes between the represented widget and its topmost container.

Returns

the number of elements in the path

Prepends a widget type to the widget hierachy represented by self.

type_

widget type to prepend

Dumps the widget path into a string representation. It tries to match the CSS style as closely as possible (Note that there might be paths that cannot be represented in CSS).

The main use of this code is for debugging purposes, so that you can g_print() the path or dump it in a gdb session.

Returns

A new string describing self.
