Description

Warning

GtkText is deprecated and unsupported. It is known to be buggy. To use it, you must define the symbol GTK_ENABLE_BROKEN prior to including the GTK+ header files. Use GtkTextView instead.

A GtkText widget allows one to display any given text and manipulate it by deleting from one point to another, selecting a region, and various other functions as outlined below. It is inherited from GtkEditable.

Details

GtkText

typedef struct _GtkText GtkText;

Warning

GtkText is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Most of the GtkText struct members should not be accessed directly. Listed below are a few exceptions and how to use them.


GtkTextFont

typedef struct _GtkTextFont GtkTextFont;

Warning

GtkTextFont is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Internal GtkText data type.


GtkPropertyMark

typedef struct {
  /* Position in list. */
  GList* property;

  /* Offset into that property. */
  guint offset;

  /* Current index. */
  guint index;
} GtkPropertyMark;

Warning

GtkPropertyMark is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Internal GtkText data type. Should not be accessed directly.


gtk_text_new ()

GtkWidget*          gtk_text_new                        (GtkAdjustment *hadj,
                                                         GtkAdjustment *vadj);

Warning

gtk_text_new is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Creates a new GtkText widget, initialized with the given pointers to GtkAdjustments. These pointers can be used to track the viewing position of the GtkText widget. Passing NULL to either or both of them will make the GtkText create its own. You can set these later with the function gtk_text_set_adjustment().

hadj :

horizontal adjustment.

vadj :

vertical adjustment.

Returns :

the new GtkText widget.

gtk_text_set_editable ()

void                gtk_text_set_editable               (GtkText *text,
                                                         gboolean editable);

Warning

gtk_text_set_editable is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Sets whether the GtkText widget can be edited by the user or not. This still allows you the programmer to make changes with the various GtkText functions.

text :

the GtkText widget

editable :

%TRUE makes it editable, FALSE makes it immutable by the user

gtk_text_set_word_wrap ()

void                gtk_text_set_word_wrap              (GtkText *text,
                                                         gboolean word_wrap);

Warning

gtk_text_set_word_wrap is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Sets whether the GtkText widget wraps words down to the next line if it can't be completed on the current line.

text :

the GtkText widget

word_wrap :

%TRUE makes it word wrap, FALSE disables word wrapping

gtk_text_set_line_wrap ()

void                gtk_text_set_line_wrap              (GtkText *text,
                                                         gboolean line_wrap);

Warning

gtk_text_set_line_wrap is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Controls how GtkText handles long lines of continuous text. If line wrap is on, the line is broken when it reaches the extent of the GtkText widget viewing area and the rest is displayed on the next line. If it is not set, the line continues regardless size of current viewing area. Similar to word wrap but it disregards word boundaries.

text :

the GtkText widget

line_wrap :

%TRUE turns line wrap on, FALSE turns it off

gtk_text_set_adjustments ()

void                gtk_text_set_adjustments            (GtkText *text,
                                                         GtkAdjustment *hadj,
                                                         GtkAdjustment *vadj);

Warning

gtk_text_set_adjustments is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Allows you to set GtkAdjustment pointers which in turn allows you to keep track of the viewing position of the GtkText widget.

text :

the GtkText widget

hadj :

the horizontal adjustment

vadj :

the vertical adjustment

gtk_text_set_point ()

void                gtk_text_set_point                  (GtkText *text,

Warning

text :

the GtkText widget

index :

the number of characters from the upper left corner

gtk_text_get_point ()

guint               gtk_text_get_point                  (GtkText *text);

the length of the text

gtk_text_freeze ()

void                gtk_text_freeze                     (GtkText *text);

Warning

gtk_text_freeze is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Freezes the GtkText widget which disallows redrawing of the widget until it is thawed. This is useful if a large number of changes are going to made to the text within the widget, reducing the amount of flicker seen by the user.

text :

the GtkText widget

gtk_text_thaw ()
