Properties

  "selection-mode"           GtkSelectionMode      : Read / Write

Signals

  "select-child"                                   : Run First

Description

The GtkList widget is a container whose children are displayed vertically in order, and can be selected. The list has many selection modes, which are programmer selective and depend on how many elements are able to be selected at the same time.

GtkList has been deprecated since GTK+ 2.0 and should not be used in newly written code. Use GtkTreeView instead.
