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.


Exported types

class GObject o => IsRecentChooserMenu o Source #

Type class for types which can be safely cast to RecentChooserMenu, for instance with toRecentChooserMenu.

toRecentChooserMenu :: (MonadIO m, IsRecentChooserMenu o) => o -> m RecentChooserMenu Source #

Cast to RecentChooserMenu, for types for which this is known to be safe. For general casts, use castTo.



recentChooserMenuGetShowNumbers Source #


:: (HasCallStack, MonadIO m, IsRecentChooserMenu a) 
=> a

menu: a RecentChooserMenu

-> m Bool

Returns: True if numbers should be shown.

Returns the value set by recentChooserMenuSetShowNumbers.

Since: 2.10


recentChooserMenuNew Source #


:: (HasCallStack, MonadIO m) 
=> m RecentChooserMenu

Returns: a new RecentChooserMenu

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.

Since: 2.10


recentChooserMenuNewForManager Source #


:: (HasCallStack, MonadIO m, IsRecentManager a) 
=> a

manager: a RecentManager

-> m RecentChooserMenu

Returns: a new RecentChooserMenu, bound to manager.

Creates a new RecentChooserMenu widget using manager as the underlying recently used resources manager.

This is useful if you have implemented your own recent manager, or if you have a customized instance of a RecentManager object or if you wish to share a common RecentManager object among multiple RecentChooser widgets.

Since: 2.10


recentChooserMenuSetShowNumbers Source #


:: (HasCallStack, MonadIO m, IsRecentChooserMenu a) 
=> a

menu: a RecentChooserMenu

-> Bool

showNumbers: whether to show numbers

-> m () 

Sets whether a number should be added to the items of menu. The numbers are shown to provide a unique character for a mnemonic to be used inside ten menu item’s label. Only the first the items get a number to avoid clashes.

Since: 2.10



Whether the first ten items in the menu should be prepended by a number acting as a unique mnemonic.

Since: 2.10

constructRecentChooserMenuShowNumbers :: IsRecentChooserMenu o => Bool -> IO (GValueConstruct o) Source #

Construct a GValueConstruct with valid value for the “show-numbers” property. This is rarely needed directly, but it is used by new.

getRecentChooserMenuShowNumbers :: (MonadIO m, IsRecentChooserMenu o) => o -> m Bool Source #

Get the value of the “show-numbers” property. When overloading is enabled, this is equivalent to

get recentChooserMenu #showNumbers

setRecentChooserMenuShowNumbers :: (MonadIO m, IsRecentChooserMenu o) => o -> Bool -> m () Source #

Set the value of the “show-numbers” property. When overloading is enabled, this is equivalent to

set recentChooserMenu [ #showNumbers := value ]
