Description

A tabbed notebook container

Synopsis

Detail

The Notebook widget is a Container whose children are pages that can be switched between using tab labels along one edge.

There are many configuration options for Notebook. Among other things, you can choose on which edge the tabs appear (see notebookSetTabPos), whether, if there are too many tabs to fit the noteobook should be made bigger or scrolling arrows added (see notebookSetScrollable), and whether there will be a popup menu allowing the users to switch pages. (see notebookEnablePopup)

data Packing Source #

Packing parameters of a widget

  • The Packing parameter determines how the child behaves in the horizontal or vertical way in an HBox or VBox, respectively. PackNatural means the child is as big as it requests. It will stay at the start or end of a Box if there is more space available. All children packed with PackRepel will be padded on both sides with additional space. PackGrow will increase the size of a widget so that it covers the available space. A menu bar, for instance, should always stay at the top of a window and should only occupy as little space as possible. Hence it should be packed at the start of a VBox with the packing option PackNatural. The working area of a window (e.g. the text area in an editor) should expand when the window is resized. Here the packing option PackGrow is the right choice and it is irrelevant whether the main area is inserted at the start or the end of a box. Finally PackRepel is most useful in a window where no widget can make use of excess space. Examples include a dialog box without list boxes or text fields.

notebookQueryTabLabelPacking Source #

Sets whether the tabs must have all the same size or not.

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

Removed in Gtk3.

=> self 
-> child

child - the child page

-> Bool

detachable - whether the tab is detachable or not

-> IO () 

Sets whether the tab can be detached from notebook to another notebook or widget.

Note that 2 notebooks must share a common group identificator (see gtk_notebook_set_group_id()) to allow automatic tabs interchange between them.

If you want a widget to interact with a notebook through DnD (i.e.: accept dragged tabs from it) it must be set as a drop destination and accept the target GTK_NOTEBOOK_TAB. The notebook will fill the selection with a GtkWidget** pointing to the child widget that corresponds to the dropped tab.

If you want a notebook to accept drags from other widgets, you will have to set your own DnD code to do it.
