Description

A GtkComboBoxEntry is a widget that allows the user to choose from a list of valid choices or enter a different value. It is very similar to a GtkComboBox, but it displays the selected value in an entry to allow modifying it.

In contrast to a GtkComboBox, the underlying model of a GtkComboBoxEntry must always have a text column (see gtk_combo_box_entry_set_text_column()), and the entry will show the content of the text column in the selected row.

The convenience API to construct simple text-only GtkComboBoxes can also be used with GtkComboBoxEntrys which have been constructed with gtk_combo_box_entry_new_text().

Details

GtkComboBoxEntry

typedef struct _GtkComboBoxEntry GtkComboBoxEntry;


gtk_combo_box_entry_new ()

GtkWidget*  gtk_combo_box_entry_new         (void);

Creates a new GtkComboBoxEntry which has a GtkEntry as child. After construction, you should set a model using gtk_combo_box_set_model() and a text_column * using gtk_combo_box_entry_set_text_column().

Returns : A new GtkComboBoxEntry.

Since 2.4


gtk_combo_box_entry_new_with_model ()

GtkWidget*  gtk_combo_box_entry_new_with_model
                                            (GtkTreeModel *model,
                                             gint text_column);

Creates a new GtkComboBoxEntry which has a GtkEntry as child and a list of strings as popup. You can get the GtkEntry from a GtkComboBoxEntry using GTK_ENTRY (GTK_BIN (combo_box_entry)->child). To add and remove strings from the list, just modify model using its data manipulation API.

model : A GtkTreeModel.
text_column : A column in model to get the strings from.
Returns : A new GtkComboBoxEntry.

Since 2.4


gtk_combo_box_entry_new_text ()

GtkWidget*  gtk_combo_box_entry_new_text    (void);

Convenience function which constructs a new editable text combo box, which is a GtkComboBoxEntry just displaying strings. If you use this function to create a text combo box, you should only manipulate its data source with the following convenience functions: gtk_combo_box_append_text(), gtk_combo_box_insert_text(), gtk_combo_box_prepend_text() and gtk_combo_box_remove_text().

Returns : A new text GtkComboBoxEntry.

Since 2.4


gtk_combo_box_entry_set_text_column ()

void        gtk_combo_box_entry_set_text_column
                                            (GtkComboBoxEntry *entry_box,
                                             gint text_column);

Sets the model column which entry_box should use to get strings from to be text_column.

entry_box : A GtkComboBoxEntry.
text_column : A column in model to get the strings from.

Since 2.4.


gtk_combo_box_entry_get_text_column ()

gint        gtk_combo_box_entry_get_text_column
                                            (GtkComboBoxEntry *entry_box);

Returns the column which entry_box is using to get the strings from.

entry_box : A GtkComboBoxEntry.
Returns : A column in the data source model of entry_box.

Since 2.4
