Description

Create bars of buttons and other widgets

Synopsis

Detail

This widget underwent a signficant overhaul in gtk 2.4 and the recommended api changed substantially. The old interface is still supported but it is not recommended.

  • The following information applies to the new interface only.

A toolbar is created with a call to toolbarNew.

A toolbar can contain instances of a subclass of ToolItem. To add a ToolItem to the a toolbar, use toolbarInsert. To remove an item from the toolbar use containerRemove. To add a button to the toolbar, add an instance of ToolButton.

Toolbar items can be visually grouped by adding instances of SeparatorToolItem to the toolbar. If a SeparatorToolItem has the "expand" property set to True and the "draw" property set to False the effect is to force all following items to the end of the toolbar.

Creating a context menu for the toolbar can be done using onPopupContextMenu.

  • The following information applies to the old interface only.

Buttons, RadioButtons and ToggleButtons can be added by refering to stock images. Their size can be changed by calling toolbarSetIconSize. In contrast, normal widget cannot be added. Due to the bad interface of Toolbar mnemonics of RadioButtons and ToggleButtons are not honored.

All the append, insert and prepend functions use an internal function to do the actual work. In fact the interface is pretty skrewed up: To insert icons by using stock items is definitely the best practice as all other images cannot react to toolbarSetIconSize and other theming actions. On the other hand toolbarInsertStock always generates simple Buttons but is the only function that is able to insert Mnemonics on the label. Our solution is to use StockItems to specify all Images of the Buttons. If the user inserts RadioButtons or ToggleButtons, the stock image lookup is done manually. A mnemonic in the labels is sadly not honored this way.

Types

Constructors

toolbarNew :: IO Toolbar Source

Creates a new toolbar.

Methods

toolbarInsertNewButton :: (ToolbarClass self, GlibString string) => self -> Int -> StockId -> Maybe (string, string) -> IO Button Source

Insert a new Button into the Toolbar.

The new Button is created at position pos, counting from 0.

The icon and label for the button is referenced by stockId which must be a valid entry in the Toolbars Style or the default IconFactory.

If you whish to have Tooltips added to this button you can specify Just (tipText, tipPrivate) , otherwise specify Nothing.

The newly created Button is returned. Use this button to add an action function with "connectToClicked".

toolbarInsertNewRadioButton :: (ToolbarClass self, RadioButtonClass rb, GlibString string) => self -> Int -> StockId -> Maybe (string, string) -> Maybe rb -> IO RadioButton Source

Insert a new RadioButton into the Toolbar.

See toolbarInsertNewButton for details.

  • Warning: this function is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

The parent argument must be set to another RadioButton in the group. If Nothing is given, a new group is generated (which is the desired behavious for the first button of a group).

toolbarInsertNewWidget :: (ToolbarClass self, WidgetClass w, GlibString string) => self -> Int -> w -> Maybe (string, string) -> IO () Source

Insert an arbitrary widget to the Toolbar.

The Widget should not be a button. Adding Buttons with the toolbarInsertButton,... functions with stock objects is much better as it takes care of theme handling.

Alters the view of the toolbar to display either icons only, text only, or both.

toolbarGetStyle :: ToolbarClass self => self -> IO ToolbarStyle Source

-> IO () 

Sets if the tooltips of a toolbar should be active or not.

Retrieves whether tooltips are enabled. See toolbarSetTooltips.

Removed in Gtk3.

data IconSize Source

The size of an icon in pixels.

  • This enumeration contains one case that is not exported and which is used when new sizes are registered using iconSizeRegister.
  • Applying show to this type will reveal the name of the size that is registered with Gtk+.

Constructors

IconSizeInvalid

Don't scale but use any of the available sizes.

IconSizeMenu

Icon size to use in next to menu items in drop-down menus.

IconSizeSmallToolbar

Icon size for small toolbars.

IconSizeLargeToolbar

Icon size for larger toolbars.

IconSizeButton

Icon size for icons in buttons, next to the label.

IconSizeDnd

toolbarSetIconSize :: ToolbarClass self => self -> IconSize -> IO () Source

This function sets the size of stock icons in the toolbar. You can call it both before you add the icons and after they've been added. The size you set will override user preferences for the default icon size.

It might be sensible to restrict oneself to IconSizeSmallToolbar and IconSizeLargeToolbar.

  • Warning: this function is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

toolbarGetIconSize :: ToolbarClass self => self -> IO IconSize Source

Retrieves the icon size for the toolbar. See toolbarSetIconSize.

toolbarGetItemIndex Source

Arguments

:: (ToolbarClass self, ToolItemClass item) 
=> self 
-> item

item - a ToolItem that is a child of toolbar

(x, y) - coordinate of a point on the toolbar. Note that (x, y) are in toolbar coordinates, not window coordinates.

-> IO Int

returns The position corresponding to the point (x, y) on the toolbar.

Returns the position corresponding to the indicated point on toolbar. This is useful when dragging items to the toolbar: this function returns the position a new item should be inserted.

Emitted when the user right-clicks the toolbar or uses the keybinding to display a popup menu.

Application developers should handle this signal if they want to display a context menu on the toolbar. The context-menu should appear at the coordinates given by x and y. The mouse button number is given by the button parameter. If the menu was popped up using the keybaord, button is -1.

afterPopupContextMenu Source
