Libglade facilitates loading of XML specifications of whole widget trees
that have been interactively designed with the GUI builder Glade. The
present module exports operations for manipulating GladeXML objects.
- This binding does not support Libglade functionality that is exclusively
meant for extending Libglade with new widgets. Like new widgets, such
functionality is currently expected to be implemented in C.
Create a new XML object (and the corresponding widgets) from the given
This corresponds to xmlNewWithRootAndDomain, but without the ability
to specify a root widget or translation domain.
|:: FilePath||the XML file name.
|-> Maybe String||root - the widget node in fname to start building
from (or Nothing)
|-> Maybe String||domain - the translation domain for the XML file (or
Nothing for default)
|-> IO (Maybe GladeXML)|
Create a new GladeXML object (and the corresponding widgets) from the
given XML file.
Optionally it will only build the interface from the widget
node root (if it is not Nothing). This feature is useful if you only
want to build say a toolbar or menu from the XML file, but not the window
it is embedded in.
Note also that the XML parse tree is cached to speed up creating another
GladeXML object for the same file.
|Obtaining widget handles
|:: WidgetClass widget|
|-> GObject -> widget||a dynamic cast function that returns the type of
object that you expect, eg castToButton
|-> String||the second parameter is the ID of the widget in
the glade xml file, eg "button1".
|-> IO widget|
|Get the widget that has the given name in
the interface description. If the named widget cannot be found
or is of the wrong type the result is an error.
|Like xmlGetWidget but it does not do any casting and if the named
widget is not found then the result is Nothing rather than an error.
