Displays recently used files in a menu

  • Module available since Gtk+ version 2.10



RecentChooserMenu is a widget suitable for displaying recently used files inside a menu. It can be used to set a sub-menu of a MenuItem using menuItemSetSubmenu, or as the menu of a MenuToolButton.

Note that RecentChooserMenu does not have any methods of its own. Instead, you should use the functions that work on a RecentChooser.

Note also that RecentChooserMenu does not support multiple filters, as it has no way to let the user choose between them as the RecentChooserWidget and RecentChooserDialog widgets do. Thus using recentChooserAddFilter on a RecentChooserMenu widget will yield the same effects as using recentChooserSetFilter, replacing any currently set filter with the supplied filter; recentChooserRemoveFilter will remove any currently set RecentFilter object and will unset the current filter; recentChooserListFilters will return a list containing a single RecentFilter object.

Recently used files are supported since Gtk+ 2.10.

recentChooserMenuNew :: IO RecentChooserMenu Source

Creates a new RecentChooserMenu widget.

This kind of widget shows the list of recently used resources as a menu, each item as a menu item. Each item inside the menu might have an icon, representing its MIME type, and a number, for mnemonic access.

This widget implements the RecentChooser interface.

This widget creates its own RecentManager object. See the recentChooserMenuNewForManager function to know how to create a RecentChooserMenu widget bound to another RecentManager object.

:: RecentManagerClass manager 
=> manager

-> IO RecentChooserMenu
