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

A GObject property value in a Expression.

Implements

[ExpressionExt][trait@crate::prelude::ExpressionExt]

Implementations

Creates an expression that looks up a property.

The object to use is found by evaluating the expression, or using the this argument when expression is NULL.

If the resulting object conforms to this_type, its property named property_name will be queried. Otherwise, this expression’s evaluation will fail.

The given this_type must have a property with property_name.

this_type

The type to expect for the this type

expression

Expression to evaluate to get the object to query or NULL to query the this object

property_name

name of the property

Returns

a new Expression

Creates an expression that looks up a property.

The object to use is found by evaluating the expression, or using the this argument when expression is NULL.

If the resulting object conforms to this_type, its property specified by pspec will be queried. Otherwise, this expression’s evaluation will fail.

expression

Expression to evaluate to get the object to query or NULL to query the this object

pspec

the GParamSpec for the property to query

Returns

a new Expression

Gets the expression specifying the object of a property expression.

Returns

the object expression

Gets the GParamSpec specifying the property of a property expression.

Returns

the GParamSpec for the property

Methods from Deref<Target = Expression>

Bind target’s property named property to self.

The value that self evaluates to is set via g_object_set() on target. This is repeated whenever self changes to ensure that the object’s property stays synchronized with self.

If self’s evaluation fails, target’s property is not updated. You can ensure that this doesn’t happen by using a fallback expression.

Note that this function takes ownership of self. If you want to keep it around, you should Gtk::Expression::ref() it beforehand.

target

the target object to bind to

property

name of the property on target to bind to

this_

the this argument for the evaluation of self

Returns

a ExpressionWatch

Gets the GType that this expression evaluates to.

This type is constant and will not change over the lifetime of this expression.

Returns

The type returned from [ExpressionExtManual::evaluate()][crate::prelude::ExpressionExtManual::evaluate()]

Checks if the expression is static.

A static expression will never change its result when [ExpressionExtManual::evaluate()][crate::prelude::ExpressionExtManual::evaluate()] is called on it with the same arguments.

That means a call to [ExpressionExt::watch()][crate::prelude::ExpressionExt::watch()] is not necessary because it will never trigger a notify.

Returns

TRUE if the expression is static

Watch the given expression for changes.

The @notify function will be called whenever the evaluation of self may have changed.

GTK cannot guarantee that the evaluation did indeed change when the @notify gets invoked, but it guarantees the opposite: When it did in fact change, the @notify will be invoked.

this_

the this argument to watch

notify

callback to invoke when the expression changes

Returns

The newly installed watch. Note that the only reference held to the watch will be released when the watch is unwatched which can happen automatically, and not just via ExpressionWatch::unwatch(). You should call Gtk::ExpressionWatch::ref() if you want to keep the watch around.

Similar to Self::evaluate but panics if the value is of a different type.

Create a PropertyExpression that looks up for property_name with self as parameter. This is useful in long chains of Expressions.

Create a ClosureExpression from a glib::Closure with self as the second parameter and R as the return type. The return type is checked at run-time and must always be specified. This is useful in long chains of Expressions when using the [glib::closure!] macro.

Note that the first parameter will always be the this object bound to the expression. If None is passed as this then the type of the first parameter must be Option<glib::Object> otherwise type checking will panic.

use gtk::prelude::*;
use gtk::glib;
use glib::{closure, Object};

let button = gtk::Button::new();
button.set_label("Hello");
let label = button
    .property_expression("label")
    .chain_closure::<String>(closure!(|_: Option<Object>, label: &str| {
        format!("{} World", label)
    }))
    .evaluate_as::<String, _>(gtk::Widget::NONE);
assert_eq!(label.unwrap(), "Hello World");

Create a ClosureExpression with self as the second parameter. This is useful in long chains of Expressions.
