Details

GtkMenuBar

typedef struct _GtkMenuBar GtkMenuBar;

The GtkMenuBar struct contains the following fields. (These fields should be considered read-only. They should never be set by an application.)


gtk_menu_bar_new ()

GtkWidget*          gtk_menu_bar_new                    (void);

Creates the new GtkMenuBar

Returns :

the GtkMenuBar

gtk_menu_bar_append()

#define gtk_menu_bar_append(menu,child)	    gtk_menu_shell_append  ((GtkMenuShell *)(menu),(child))

Warning

gtk_menu_bar_append is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code. Use gtk_menu_shell_append() instead.

Adds a new GtkMenuItem to the end of the GtkMenuBar

menu :

a GtkMenuBar

child :

the GtkMenuItem to add

gtk_menu_bar_prepend()

#define gtk_menu_bar_prepend(menu,child)    gtk_menu_shell_prepend ((GtkMenuShell *)(menu),(child))

Warning

gtk_menu_bar_prepend is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code. Use gtk_menu_shell_prepend() instead.

Adds a new GtkMenuItem to the beginning of the GtkMenuBar

menu :

a GtkMenuBar

child :

the GtkMenuItem to add

gtk_menu_bar_insert()

#define gtk_menu_bar_insert(menu,child,pos) gtk_menu_shell_insert ((GtkMenuShell *)(menu),(child),(pos))

Warning

Adds a new GtkMenuItem to the GtkMenuBar at the position defined by position

menu :

a GtkMenuBar

child :

the GtkMenuItem to add

pos :

the position in the item list where the child is added.

enum GtkPackDirection

typedef enum
{
  GTK_PACK_DIRECTION_LTR,
  GTK_PACK_DIRECTION_RTL,
