Description

The GtkAdjustment object represents a value which has an associated lower and upper bound, together with step and page increments, and a page size. It is used within several GTK+ widgets, including GtkSpinButton, GtkViewport, and GtkRange (which is a base class for GtkHScrollbar, GtkVScrollbar, GtkHScale, and GtkVScale).

The GtkAdjustment object does not update the value itself. Instead it is left up to the owner of the GtkAdjustment to control the value.

The owner of the GtkAdjustment typically calls the gtk_adjustment_value_changed() and gtk_adjustment_changed() functions after changing the value and its bounds. This results in the emission of the "value_changed" or "changed" signal respectively.

Details

GtkAdjustment

typedef struct _GtkAdjustment GtkAdjustment;

The GtkAdjustment struct contains the following fields.

gdouble lower; the minimum value.
gdouble upper; the maximum value.
gdouble value; the current value.
gdouble step_increment; the increment to use to make minor changes to the value. In a GtkScrollbar this increment is used when the mouse is clicked on the arrows at the top and bottom of the scrollbar, to scroll by a small amount.
gdouble page_increment; the increment to use to make major changes to the value. In a GtkScrollbar this increment is used when the mouse is clicked in the trough, to scroll by a large amount.
gdouble page_size; the page size. In a GtkScrollbar this is the size of the area which is currently visible.


gtk_adjustment_new ()

GtkObject*          gtk_adjustment_new                  (gdouble value,
                                                         gdouble lower,
                                                         gdouble upper,
                                                         gdouble step_increment,
                                                         gdouble page_increment,
                                                         gdouble page_size);

Creates a new GtkAdjustment.

value :

the initial value.

lower :

the minimum value.

upper :

the maximum value.

step_increment :

the step increment.

page_increment :

the page increment.

page_size :

the page size.

Returns :

a new GtkAdjustment.

gtk_adjustment_get_value ()

gdouble             gtk_adjustment_get_value            (GtkAdjustment *adjustment);

Gets the current value of the adjustment. See gtk_adjustment_set_value().

adjustment :

a GtkAdjustment

Returns :

The current value of the adjustment.

gtk_adjustment_set_value ()

void                gtk_adjustment_set_value            (GtkAdjustment *adjustment,
                                                         gdouble value);

Sets the GtkAdjustment value. The value is clamped to lie between adjustment->lower and adjustment->upper.

Note that for adjustments which are used in a GtkScrollbar, the effective range of allowed values goes from adjustment->lower to adjustment->upper - adjustment->page_size.

adjustment :

a GtkAdjustment.

value :

the new value.

gtk_adjustment_clamp_page ()

void                gtk_adjustment_clamp_page           (GtkAdjustment *adjustment,
                                                         gdouble lower,
                                                         gdouble upper);

Updates the GtkAdjustment value to ensure that the range between lower and upper is in the current page (i.e. between value and value + page_size). If the range is larger than the page size, then only the start of it will be in the current page. A "changed" signal will be emitted if the value is changed.

adjustment :

a GtkAdjustment.

lower :

the lower value.

upper :

the upper value.

gtk_adjustment_changed ()

void                gtk_adjustment_changed              (GtkAdjustment *adjustment);

Emits a "changed" signal from the GtkAdjustment. This is typically called by the owner of the GtkAdjustment after it has changed any of the GtkAdjustment fields other than the value.

adjustment :

a GtkAdjustment

gtk_adjustment_value_changed ()

void                gtk_adjustment_value_changed        (GtkAdjustment *adjustment);

                                                         gdouble lower,
                                                         gdouble upper,
                                                         gdouble step_increment,
                                                         gdouble page_increment,
                                                         gdouble page_size);

Sets all properties of the adjustment at once.

Use this function to avoid multiple emissions of the "changed" signal. See gtk_adjustment_set_lower() for an alternative way of compressing multiple emissions of "changed" into one.

Sets the minimum value of the adjustment.

When setting multiple adjustment properties via their individual setters, multiple "changed" signals will be emitted. However, since the emission of the "changed" signal is tied to the emission of the "GObject::notify" signals of the changed properties, it's possible to compress the "changed" signals into one by calling g_object_freeze_notify() and g_object_thaw_notify() around the calls to the individual setters.

Alternatively, using a single g_object_set() for all the properties to change, or using gtk_adjustment_configure() has the same effect of compressing "changed" emissions.
