Description

GtkScrolledWindow is a GtkBin subclass: it's a container the accepts a single child widget. GtkScrolledWindow adds scrollbars to the child widget.

The scrolled window can work in two ways. Some widgets have native scrolling support; these widgets have "slots" for GtkAdjustment objects. The scrolled window installs GtkAdjustment objects in the child window's slots using the set_scroll_adjustments_signal, found in GtkWidgetClass. (Conceptually, these widgets implement a "Scrollable" interface; because GTK+ 1.2 lacks multiple inheritance, this interface is hackily implemented as a signal in GtkWidgetClass.)

The second way to use the scrolled window is useful with widgets that lack the set_scroll_adjustments_signal. The GtkViewport widget acts as a proxy, implementing scrollability for child widgets that lack their own scrolling capabilities.

If a widget has native scrolling abilities, it can be added to the GtkScrolledWindow with gtk_container_add(). If a widget does not, you must first add the widget to a GtkViewport, then add the GtkViewport to the scrolled window. The convenience function gtk_scrolled_window_add_with_viewport() does exactly this, so you can ignore the presence of the viewport.

Details

struct GtkScrolledWindow

struct GtkScrolledWindow;

There are no public fields in the GtkScrolledWindow struct; it should only be accessed using the functions below.


gtk_scrolled_window_new ()

GtkWidget*  gtk_scrolled_window_new         (GtkAdjustment *hadjustment,
                                             GtkAdjustment *vadjustment);

Creates a new scrolled window. The two arguments are the scrolled window's adjustments; these will be shared with the scrollbars and the child widget to keep the bars in sync with the child. Usually you want to pass NULL for the adjustments, which will cause the scrolled window to create them for you.

hadjustment :Horizontal adjustment.
vadjustment :Vertical adjustment.
Returns :New scrolled window.


gtk_scrolled_window_get_hadjustment ()

GtkAdjustment* gtk_scrolled_window_get_hadjustment
                                            (GtkScrolledWindow *scrolled_window);

Returns the horizontal scrollbar's adjustment, used to connect the horizontal scrollbar to the child widget's horizontal scroll functionality.

scrolled_window :A GtkScrolledWindow.
Returns :The horizontal GtkAdjustment.


gtk_scrolled_window_get_vadjustment ()

GtkAdjustment* gtk_scrolled_window_get_vadjustment
                                            (GtkScrolledWindow *scrolled_window);

Returns the vertical scrollbar's adjustment, used to connect the vertical scrollbar to the child widget's vertical scroll functionality.

scrolled_window :A GtkScrolledWindow.
Returns :The vertical GtkAdjustment.


gtk_scrolled_window_set_policy ()

void        gtk_scrolled_window_set_policy  (GtkScrolledWindow *scrolled_window,
                                             GtkPolicyType hscrollbar_policy,
                                             GtkPolicyType vscrollbar_policy);

Sets the scrollbar policy for the horizontal and vertical scrollbars. The policy determines when the scrollbar should appear; it is a value from the GtkPolicyType enumeration. If GTK_POLICY_ALWAYS, the scrollbar is always present; if GTK_POLICY_NEVER, the scrollbar is never present; if GTK_POLICY_AUTOMATIC, the scrollbar is present only if needed (that is, if the slider part of the bar would be smaller than the trough - the display is larger than the page size).

scrolled_window :A GtkScrolledWindow.
hscrollbar_policy :Policy for horizontal bar.
vscrollbar_policy :Policy for vertical bar.


gtk_scrolled_window_add_with_viewport ()

void        gtk_scrolled_window_add_with_viewport
                                            (GtkScrolledWindow *scrolled_window,
                                             GtkWidget *child);

Used to add children without native scrolling capabilities. This is simply a convenience function; it is equivalent to adding the unscrollable child to a viewport, then adding the viewport to the scrolled window. If a child has native scrolling, use gtk_container_add() instead of this function.

The viewport scrolls the child by moving its GdkWindow, and takes the size of the child to be the size of its toplevel GdkWindow. This will be very wrong for most widgets that support native scrolling; for example, if you add a GtkCList with a viewport, the whole widget will scroll, including the column headings. Thus GtkCList supports scrolling already, and should not be used with the GtkViewport proxy.

A widget supports scrolling natively if the set_scroll_adjustments_signal field in GtkWidgetClass is non-zero, i.e. has been filled in with a valid signal identifier.

scrolled_window :A GtkScrolledWindow.
child :Widget you want to scroll.


gtk_scrolled_window_set_hadjustment ()

void        gtk_scrolled_window_set_hadjustment
                                            (GtkScrolledWindow *scrolled_window,
                                             GtkAdjustment *hadjustment);

Sets the GtkAdjustment for the horizontal scrollbar.

scrolled_window :A GtkScrolledWindow.
hadjustment :Horizontal scroll adjustment.


gtk_scrolled_window_set_placement ()

void        gtk_scrolled_window_set_placement
                                            (GtkScrolledWindow *scrolled_window,
                                             GtkCornerType window_placement);

Determines the location of the child widget with respect to the scrollbars. The default is GTK_CORNER_TOP_LEFT, meaning the child is in the top left, with the scrollbars underneath and to the right. Other values in GtkCornerType are GTK_CORNER_TOP_RIGHT, GTK_CORNER_BOTTOM_LEFT, and GTK_CORNER_BOTTOM_RIGHT.

scrolled_window :A GtkScrolledWindow.
window_placement :Position of the child window.


gtk_scrolled_window_set_vadjustment ()

void        gtk_scrolled_window_set_vadjustment
                                            (GtkScrolledWindow *scrolled_window,
                                             GtkAdjustment *hadjustment);

Sets the GtkAdjustment for the vertical scrollbar.

scrolled_window :A GtkScrolledWindow.
hadjustment :
