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

MessageDialog presents a dialog with some message text.

An example GtkMessageDialog

It’s simply a convenience widget; you could construct the equivalent of MessageDialog from Dialog without too much effort, but MessageDialog saves typing.

The easiest way to do a modal message dialog is to use the DialogFlags::MODAL flag, which will call GtkWindowExt::set_modal() internally. The dialog will prevent interaction with the parent window until it’s hidden or destroyed. You can use the signal::Dialog::response signal to know when the user dismissed the dialog.

An example for using a modal dialog: ⚠️ The following code is in c ⚠️

GtkDialogFlags flags = GTK_DIALOG_DESTROY_WITH_PARENT | GTK_DIALOG_MODAL;
dialog = gtk_message_dialog_new (parent_window,
                                 flags,
                                 GTK_MESSAGE_ERROR,
                                 GTK_BUTTONS_CLOSE,
                                 "Error reading “%s”: %s",
                                 filename,
                                 g_strerror (errno));
// Destroy the dialog when the user responds to it
// (e.g. clicks a button)

g_signal_connect (dialog, "response",
                  G_CALLBACK (gtk_window_destroy),
                  NULL);

You might do a non-modal MessageDialog simply by omitting the DialogFlags::MODAL flag:

⚠️ The following code is in c ⚠️

GtkDialogFlags flags = GTK_DIALOG_DESTROY_WITH_PARENT;
dialog = gtk_message_dialog_new (parent_window,
                                 flags,
                                 GTK_MESSAGE_ERROR,
                                 GTK_BUTTONS_CLOSE,
                                 "Error reading “%s”: %s",
                                 filename,
                                 g_strerror (errno));

// Destroy the dialog when the user responds to it
// (e.g. clicks a button)
g_signal_connect (dialog, "response",
                  G_CALLBACK (gtk_window_destroy),
                  NULL);

GtkMessageDialog as GtkBuildable

The MessageDialog implementation of the Buildable interface exposes the message area as an internal child with the name “message_area”.

Implements

DialogExt, GtkWindowExt, WidgetExt, glib::ObjectExt, AccessibleExt, BuildableExt, ConstraintTargetExt, NativeExt, RootExt, ShortcutManagerExt, DialogExtManual, WidgetExtManual, AccessibleExtManual

Implementations

Creates a new builder-pattern struct instance to construct MessageDialog objects.

This method returns an instance of MessageDialogBuilder which can be used to create MessageDialog objects.

Returns the message area of the dialog.

This is the box where the dialog’s primary and secondary labels are packed. You can add your own extra content to that box and it will appear below those labels. See DialogExt::content_area() for the corresponding function in the parent Dialog.

Returns

A Box corresponding to the “message area” in the @self

Sets the text of the message dialog.

str

string with Pango markup

The type of the message.

The type of the message.

The secondary text of the message dialog.

The secondary text of the message dialog.

true if the secondary text of the dialog includes Pango markup.

See parse_markup().

true if the secondary text of the dialog includes Pango markup.

See parse_markup().

The primary text of the message dialog.

If the dialog has a secondary text, this will appear as the title.

The primary text of the message dialog.

If the dialog has a secondary text, this will appear as the title.

true if the primary text of the dialog includes Pango markup.

See parse_markup().

true if the primary text of the dialog includes Pango markup.

See parse_markup().

Creates a new message dialog.

This is a simple dialog with some text the user may want to see. When the user clicks a button a “response” signal is emitted with response IDs from ResponseType. See Dialog for more details.

Returns

a new MessageDialog

Creates a new message dialog.

This is a simple dialog with some text that is marked up with Pango markup. When the user clicks a button a “response” signal is emitted with response IDs from ResponseType. See Dialog for more details.

Special XML characters in the printf() arguments passed to this function will automatically be escaped as necessary. (See g_markup_printf_escaped() for how this is implemented.) Usually this is what you want, but if you have an existing Pango markup string that you want to use literally as the label, then you need to use set_markup() instead, since you can’t pass the markup string either as the format (it might contain “%” characters) or as a string argument.

⚠️ The following code is in c ⚠️

GtkWidget *dialog;
GtkDialogFlags flags = GTK_DIALOG_DESTROY_WITH_PARENT;
dialog = gtk_message_dialog_new (parent_window,
                                 flags,

message_format

printf()-style format string

Returns

a new MessageDialog

Sets the secondary text of the message dialog.

The @message_format is assumed to contain Pango markup.

Due to an oversight, this function does not escape special XML characters like with_markup() does. Thus, if the arguments may contain special XML characters, you should use g_markup_printf_escaped() to escape it.

⚠️ The following code is in c ⚠️

char *msg;

msg = g_markup_printf_escaped (message_format, ...);
gtk_message_dialog_format_secondary_markup (message_dialog,
                                            "%s", msg);
g_free (msg);
message_format

printf()-style string with Pango markup

Sets the secondary text of the message dialog.

message_format

printf()-style format string
