Implemented Interfaces

GtkFontSelectionDialog implements AtkImplementorIface and GtkBuildable.

Description

The GtkFontSelectionDialog widget is a dialog box for selecting a font.

To set the font which is initially selected, use gtk_font_selection_dialog_set_font_name().

To get the selected font use gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font_name().

To change the text which is shown in the preview area, use gtk_font_selection_dialog_set_preview_text().

GtkFontSelectionDialog as GtkBuildable

The GtkFontSelectionDialog implementation of the GtkBuildable interface exposes the embedded GtkFontSelection as internal child with the name "font_selection". It also exposes the buttons with the names "ok_button", "cancel_button" and "apply_button".

Details

GtkFontSelectionDialog

typedef struct {
  GtkWidget *GSEAL (ok_button);
  GtkWidget *GSEAL (apply_button);
  GtkWidget *GSEAL (cancel_button);
} GtkFontSelectionDialog;

gtk_font_selection_dialog_new ()

GtkWidget *         gtk_font_selection_dialog_new       (const gchar *title);

Creates a new GtkFontSelectionDialog.

title :

the title of the dialog window

Returns :

a new GtkFontSelectionDialog

gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font ()

GdkFont*            gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font  (GtkFontSelectionDialog *fsd);

Warning

gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font has been deprecated since version 2.0 and should not be used in newly-written code. Use gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font_name() instead.

Gets the currently-selected font.

fsd :

a GtkFontSelectionDialog

Returns :

the GdkFont from the GtkFontSelection for the currently selected font in the dialog, or NULL if no font is selected

gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font_name ()

gchar*              gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font_name
                                                        (GtkFontSelectionDialog *fsd);

Gets the currently-selected font name.

Note that this can be a different string than what you set with gtk_font_selection_dialog_set_font_name(), as the font selection widget may normalize font names and thus return a string with a different structure. For example, "Helvetica Italic Bold 12" could be normalized to "Helvetica Bold Italic 12". Use pango_font_description_equal() if you want to compare two font descriptions.

fsd :

a GtkFontSelectionDialog

Returns :

A string with the name of the current font, or NULL if no font is selected. You must free this string with g_free().
