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

ShortcutController is an event controller that manages shortcuts.

Most common shortcuts are using this controller implicitly, e.g. by adding a mnemonic underline to a Label, or by installing a key binding using Gtk::WidgetClass::add_binding(), or by adding accelerators to global actions using GtkApplicationExt::set_accels_for_action().

But it is possible to create your own shortcut controller, and add shortcuts to it.

ShortcutController implements GListModel for querying the shortcuts that have been added to it.

GtkShortcutController as a GtkBuildable

GtkShortcutControllers can be creates in ui files to set up shortcuts in the same place as the widgets.

An example of a UI definition fragment with ShortcutController:

  <object class='GtkButton'>
    <child>
      <object class='GtkShortcutController'>
        <property name='scope'>managed</property>
        <child>
          <object class='GtkShortcut'>
            <property name='trigger'>&lt;Control&gt;k</property>
            <property name='action'>activate</property>
          </object>
        </child>
      </object>
    </child>
  </object>

This example creates a ActivateAction for triggering the activate signal of the Button. See ShortcutAction::parse_string() for the syntax for other kinds of ShortcutAction. See ShortcutTrigger::parse_string() to learn more about the syntax for triggers.

Implementations

Creates a new shortcut controller.

Returns

a newly created shortcut controller

Creates a new shortcut controller that takes its shortcuts from the given list model.

A controller created by this function does not let you add or remove individual shortcuts using the shortcut controller api, but you can change the contents of the model.

model

a GListModel containing shortcuts

Returns

a newly created shortcut controller

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

This method returns an instance of ShortcutControllerBuilder which can be used to create ShortcutController objects.

Adds @shortcut to the list of shortcuts handled by @self.

If this controller uses an external shortcut list, this function does nothing.

shortcut

a Shortcut

Gets the mnemonics modifiers for when this controller activates its shortcuts.

Returns

the controller’s mnemonics modifiers

Gets the scope for when this controller activates its shortcuts.

See set_scope() for details.

Returns

the controller’s scope

Removes @shortcut from the list of shortcuts handled by @self.

If @shortcut had not been added to @controller or this controller uses an external shortcut list, this function does nothing.

shortcut

a Shortcut

Sets the controller to use the given modifier for mnemonics.

The mnemonics modifiers determines which modifiers need to be pressed to allow activation of shortcuts with mnemonics triggers.

GTK normally uses the Alt modifier for mnemonics, except in PopoverMenus, where mnemonics can be triggered without any modifiers. It should be very rarely necessary to change this, and doing so is likely to interfere with other shortcuts.

This value is only relevant for local shortcut controllers. Global and managed shortcut controllers will have their shortcuts activated from other places which have their own modifiers for activating mnemonics.

modifiers

the new mnemonics_modifiers to use

Sets the controller to have the given @scope.

The scope allows shortcuts to be activated outside of the normal event propagation. In particular, it allows installing global keyboard shortcuts that can be activated even when a widget does not have focus.

With ShortcutScope::Local, shortcuts will only be activated when the widget has focus.

scope

the new scope to use

The modifiers that need to be pressed to allow mnemonics activation.

The modifiers that need to be pressed to allow mnemonics activation.
