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

A SpinButton is an ideal way to allow the user to set the value of some attribute.

An example GtkSpinButton

Rather than having to directly type a number into a Entry, SpinButton allows the user to click on one of two arrows to increment or decrement the displayed value. A value can still be typed in, with the bonus that it can be checked to ensure it is in a given range.

The main properties of a SpinButton are through an adjustment. See the Adjustment documentation for more details about an adjustment’s properties.

Note that SpinButton will by default make its entry large enough to accommodate the lower and upper bounds of the adjustment. If this is not desired, the automatic sizing can be turned off by explicitly setting property::Editable::width-chars to a value != -1.

Using a GtkSpinButton to get an integer

⚠️ The following code is in c ⚠️

// Provides a function to retrieve an integer value from a GtkSpinButton
// and creates a spin button to model percentage values.

int
grab_int_value (GtkSpinButton *button,
                gpointer       user_data)
{
  return gtk_spin_button_get_value_as_int (button);
}

void
create_integer_spin_button (void)
{

  GtkWidget *window, *button;
  GtkAdjustment *adjustment;

  adjustment = gtk_adjustment_new (50.0, 0.0, 100.0, 1.0, 5.0, 0.0);

  window = gtk_window_new ();

  // creates the spinbutton, with no decimal places
  button = gtk_spin_button_new (adjustment, 1.0, 0);
  gtk_window_set_child (GTK_WINDOW (window), button);

  gtk_widget_show (window);
}

Using a GtkSpinButton to get a floating point value

⚠️ The following code is in c ⚠️

// Provides a function to retrieve a floating point value from a
// GtkSpinButton, and creates a high precision spin button.

float
grab_float_value (GtkSpinButton *button,
                  gpointer       user_data)
{
  return gtk_spin_button_get_value (button);
}

void
create_floating_spin_button (void)
{
  GtkWidget *window, *button;
  GtkAdjustment *adjustment;

  adjustment = gtk_adjustment_new (2.500, 0.0, 5.0, 0.001, 0.1, 0.0);

  window = gtk_window_new ();

  // creates the spinbutton, with three decimal places
  button = gtk_spin_button_new (adjustment, 0.001, 3);
  gtk_window_set_child (GTK_WINDOW (window), button);

  gtk_widget_show (window);
}

SpinButtons main CSS node has the name spinbutton. It creates subnodes for the entry and the two buttons, with these names. The button nodes have the style classes .up and .down. The Text subnodes (if present) are put below the text node. The orientation of the spin button is reflected in the .vertical or .horizontal style class on the main node.

Accessiblity

SpinButton uses the AccessibleRole::SpinButton role.

Implements

WidgetExt, glib::ObjectExt, AccessibleExt, BuildableExt, ConstraintTargetExt, CellEditableExt, EditableExt, OrientableExt, WidgetExtManual, AccessibleExtManual, CellEditableExtManual, EditableExtManual

Implementations

Creates a new SpinButton.

adjustment

the Adjustment that this spin button should use

climb_rate

specifies by how much the rate of change in the value will accelerate if you continue to hold down an up/down button or arrow key

digits

the number of decimal places to display

Returns

The new SpinButton

Creates a new SpinButton with the given properties.

This is a convenience constructor that allows creation of a numeric SpinButton without manually creating an adjustment. The value is initially set to the minimum value and a page increment of 10 * @step is the default. The precision of the spin button is equivalent to the precision of @step.

Note that the way in which the precision is derived works best if @step is a power of ten. If the resulting precision is not suitable for your needs, use set_digits() to correct it.

min

Minimum allowable value

max

Maximum allowable value

step

Increment added or subtracted by spinning the widget

Returns

The new SpinButton

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

This method returns an instance of SpinButtonBuilder which can be used to create SpinButton objects.

Changes the properties of an existing spin button.

The adjustment, climb rate, and number of decimal places are updated accordingly.

adjustment

a Adjustment to replace the spin button’s existing adjustment, or None to leave its current adjustment unchanged

climb_rate

the new climb rate

digits

the number of decimal places to display in the spin button

Get the adjustment associated with a SpinButton.

Returns

the Adjustment of @self

Returns the acceleration rate for repeated changes.

Returns

the acceleration rate

Fetches the precision of @self.

Returns

the current precision

Gets the current step and page the increments used by @self.

See set_increments().

Returns
step

location to store step increment

page

location to store page increment

Returns whether non-numeric text can be typed into the spin button.

Returns

true if only numeric text can be entered

Gets the range allowed for @self.

See set_range().

Returns
min

location to store minimum allowed value

max

location to store maximum allowed value

Returns whether the values are corrected to the nearest step.

Returns

true if values are snapped to the nearest step

Gets the update behavior of a spin button.

See set_update_policy().

Returns

the current update policy

Get the value in the @self.

Returns

the value of @self

Get the value @self represented as an integer.

Returns

the value of @self

Returns whether the spin button’s value wraps around to the opposite limit when the upper or lower limit of the range is exceeded.

Returns

true if the spin button wraps around

Replaces the Adjustment associated with @self.

adjustment

a Adjustment to replace the existing adjustment

Sets the acceleration rate for repeated changes when you hold down a button or key.

climb_rate

the rate of acceleration, must be >= 0

Set the precision to be displayed by @self.

Up to 20 digit precision is allowed.

digits

the number of digits after the decimal point to be displayed for the spin button’s value

Sets the step and page increments for spin_button.

This affects how quickly the value changes when the spin button’s arrows are activated.

step

increment applied for a button 1 press.

page

increment applied for a button 2 press.

Sets the flag that determines if non-numeric text can be typed into the spin button.

numeric

flag indicating if only numeric entry is allowed

Sets the minimum and maximum allowable values for @self.

If the current value is outside this range, it will be adjusted to fit within the range, otherwise it will remain unchanged.

min

Emitted when the user initiates a value change.

This is a keybinding signal.

Applications should not connect to it, but may emit it with g_signal_emit_by_name() if they need to control the cursor programmatically.

The default bindings for this signal are Up/Down and PageUp/PageDown.

scroll

a ScrollType to specify the speed and amount of change

Emitted to tweak the formatting of the value for display.

⚠️ The following code is in c ⚠️

// show leading zeros
static gboolean
on_output (GtkSpinButton *spin,
           gpointer       data)
{
   GtkAdjustment *adjustment;
   char *text;
   int value;

   adjustment = gtk_spin_button_get_adjustment (spin);
   value = (int)gtk_adjustment_get_value (adjustment);
   text = g_strdup_printf ("%02d", value);
   gtk_spin_button_set_text (spin, text):
   g_free (text);

   return TRUE;
}
Returns

true if the value has been displayed

Emitted when the value is changed.

Also see the signal::SpinButton::output signal.

Emitted right after the spinbutton wraps from its maximum to its minimum value or vice-versa.

Emitted to convert the users input into a double value.

The signal handler is expected to use EditableExt::text() to retrieve the text of the spinbutton and set @new_value to the new value.

The default conversion uses g_strtod().

Returns

true for a successful conversion, false if the input was not handled, and GTK_INPUT_ERROR if the conversion failed.

new_value

return location for the new value
