Implemented Interfaces

GtkLinkButton implements GtkActivatable, AtkImplementorIface and GtkBuildable.

Properties

  "uri"                      gchar*                : Read / Write
  "visited"                  gboolean              : Read / Write

Description

A GtkLinkButton is a GtkButton with a hyperlink, similar to the one used by web browsers, which triggers an action when clicked. It is useful to show quick links to resources.

A link button is created by calling either gtk_link_button_new() or gtk_link_button_new_with_label(). If using the former, the URI you pass to the constructor is used as a label for the widget.

The URI bound to a GtkLinkButton can be set specifically using gtk_link_button_set_uri(), and retrieved using gtk_link_button_get_uri().

GtkLinkButton offers a global hook, which is called when the used clicks on it: see gtk_link_button_set_uri_hook().

GtkLinkButton was added in GTK+ 2.10.

Details

GtkLinkButton

typedef struct _GtkLinkButton GtkLinkButton;

The GtkLinkButton struct contains private data only, and should be manipulated using the functions below.


gtk_link_button_new ()

GtkWidget *         gtk_link_button_new                 (const gchar *uri);

Creates a new GtkLinkButton with the URI as its text.

uri :

a valid URI

Returns :

a new link button widget.

Since 2.10


gtk_link_button_new_with_label ()

GtkWidget *         gtk_link_button_new_with_label      (const gchar *uri,
                                                         const gchar *label);

Creates a new GtkLinkButton containing a label.

uri :

a valid URI

label :

the text of the button

Returns :

a new link button widget.

Since 2.10


gtk_link_button_get_uri ()

const gchar *       gtk_link_button_get_uri             (GtkLinkButton *link_button);

Retrieves the URI set using gtk_link_button_set_uri().

link_button :

a GtkLinkButton

Returns :

a valid URI. The returned string is owned by the link button and should not be modified or freed.

Since 2.10


gtk_link_button_set_uri ()

void                gtk_link_button_set_uri             (GtkLinkButton *link_button,
                                                         const gchar *uri);

Sets uri as the URI where the GtkLinkButton points. As a side-effect this unsets the 'visited' state of the button.

link_button :

a GtkLinkButton

uri :

a valid URI

Since 2.10


GtkLinkButtonUriFunc ()

void                (*GtkLinkButtonUriFunc)             (GtkLinkButton *button,
                                                         const gchar *link_,
                                                         gpointer user_data);

The type of a function which is called when the GtkLinkButton is clicked.

button :

the GtkLinkButton which was clicked

link_ :

the URI to which the clicked GtkLinkButton points

user_data :

user data that was passed when the function was registered with gtk_link_button_set_uri_hook()

gtk_link_button_set_uri_hook ()

GtkLinkButtonUriFunc  gtk_link_button_set_uri_hook      (GtkLinkButtonUriFunc func,
                                                         gpointer data,
                                                         GDestroyNotify destroy);

Sets func as the function that should be invoked every time a user clicks a GtkLinkButton. This function is called before every callback registered for the "clicked" signal.

If no uri hook has been set, GTK+ defaults to calling gtk_show_uri().

func :

a function called each time a GtkLinkButton is clicked, or NULL

data :

user data to be passed to func, or NULL

destroy :

a GDestroyNotify that gets called when data is no longer needed, or NULL

Returns :

the previously set hook function.

Since 2.10


gtk_link_button_get_visited ()

gboolean            gtk_link_button_get_visited         (GtkLinkButton *link_button);

Retrieves the 'visited' state of the URI where the GtkLinkButton points. The button becomes visited when it is clicked. If the URI is changed on the button, the 'visited' state is unset again.

The state may also be changed using gtk_link_button_set_visited().

link_button :

a GtkLinkButton

Returns :

TRUE if the link has been visited, FALSE otherwise

Since 2.14


gtk_link_button_set_visited ()

void                gtk_link_button_set_visited         (GtkLinkButton *link_button,
                                                         gboolean visited);

Sets the 'visited' state of the URI where the GtkLinkButton points. See gtk_link_button_get_visited() for more details.

link_button :

a GtkLinkButton

visited :

the new 'visited' state

Since 2.14
