Note that the user can disable display of menu icons, so make sure to still fill in the text label.

Details

GtkImageMenuItem

typedef struct _GtkImageMenuItem GtkImageMenuItem;


gtk_image_menu_item_set_image ()

void                gtk_image_menu_item_set_image       (GtkImageMenuItem *image_menu_item,
                                                         GtkWidget *image);

Sets the image of image_menu_item to the given widget. Note that it depends on the show-menu-images setting whether the image will be displayed or not.

image_menu_item :

a GtkImageMenuItem.

image :

a widget to set as the image for the menu item.

gtk_image_menu_item_get_image ()

GtkWidget*          gtk_image_menu_item_get_image       (GtkImageMenuItem *image_menu_item);

Gets the widget that is currently set as the image of image_menu_item. See gtk_image_menu_item_set_image().

image_menu_item :

a GtkImageMenuItem.

Returns :

the widget set as image of image_menu_item.

gtk_image_menu_item_new ()

GtkWidget*          gtk_image_menu_item_new             (void);

Creates a new GtkImageMenuItem with an empty label.

Returns :

a new GtkImageMenuItem.

gtk_image_menu_item_new_from_stock ()

GtkWidget*          gtk_image_menu_item_new_from_stock  (const gchar *stock_id,
                                                         GtkAccelGroup *accel_group);

Creates a new GtkImageMenuItem containing the image and text from a stock item. Some stock ids have preprocessor macros like GTK_STOCK_OK and GTK_STOCK_APPLY.

If you want this menu item to have changeable accelerators, then pass in NULL for accel_group. Next call gtk_menu_item_set_accel_path() with an appropriate path for the menu item, use gtk_stock_lookup() to look up the standard accelerator for the stock item, and if one is found, call gtk_accel_map_add_entry() to register it.

stock_id :

the name of the stock item.

accel_group :

the GtkAccelGroup to add the menu items accelerator to, or NULL.

Returns :

a new GtkImageMenuItem.

gtk_image_menu_item_new_with_label ()

GtkWidget*          gtk_image_menu_item_new_with_label  (const gchar *label);

Creates a new GtkImageMenuItem containing a label.

label :

the text of the menu item.

Returns :

a new GtkImageMenuItem.

gtk_image_menu_item_new_with_mnemonic ()

GtkWidget*          gtk_image_menu_item_new_with_mnemonic
                                                        (const gchar *label);

Creates a new GtkImageMenuItem containing a label. The label will be created using gtk_label_new_with_mnemonic(), so underscores in label indicate the mnemonic for the menu item.

label :

the text of the menu item, with an underscore in front of the mnemonic character

Returns :

a new GtkImageMenuItem

gtk_image_menu_item_get_use_stock ()

gboolean            gtk_image_menu_item_get_use_stock   (GtkImageMenuItem *image_menu_item);

Checks whether the label set in the menuitem is used as a stock id to select the stock item for the item.

image_menu_item :

a GtkImageMenuItem

Returns :

TRUE if the label set in the menuitem is used as a stock id to select the stock item for the item

Returns whether the menu item will ignore the "gtk-menu-images" setting and always show the image, if available.

image_menu_item :

a GtkImageMenuItem

Returns :

TRUE if the menu item will always show the image

Since 2.16


gtk_image_menu_item_set_always_show_image ()

void                gtk_image_menu_item_set_always_show_image
                                                        (GtkImageMenuItem *image_menu_item,

gtk_image_menu_item_set_accel_group ()

                                                         GtkAccelGroup *accel_group);

Specifies an accel_group to add the menu items accelerator to (this only applies to stock items so a stock item must already be set, make sure to call gtk_image_menu_item_set_use_stock() and gtk_menu_item_set_label() with a valid stock item first).

If you want this menu item to have changeable accelerators then you shouldnt need this (see gtk_image_menu_item_new_from_stock()).
