Description

The GTK+ type system is extensible. Because of that, types have to be managed at runtime.

Details

GtkType

typedef GType                   GtkType;

Warning

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

GtkType is unique integer identifying the type. The guts of the information about the type is held in a private struct named GtkTypeNode.


GtkFundamentalType

typedef GType GtkFundamentalType;

Warning

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

GtkFundamentalType is an enumerated type which lists all the possible fundamental types (e.g. char, uchar, int, long, float, etc).


GTK_CLASS_NAME()

#define GTK_CLASS_NAME(class)		(g_type_name (G_TYPE_FROM_CLASS (class)))

Warning

GTK_CLASS_NAME is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code. Use g_type_name() and G_TYPE_FROM_CLASS() instead.

Returns the type name of class.

class :

a GtkTypeClass.

GTK_CLASS_TYPE()

#define GTK_CLASS_TYPE(class)		(G_TYPE_FROM_CLASS (class))

Warning

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

#define GTK_TYPE_IS_OBJECT(type)	(g_type_is_a ((type), GTK_TYPE_OBJECT))

Warning

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

Warning

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

Warning

A GtkTypeObject defines the minimum structure requirements for type instances. Type instances returned from gtk_type_new() and initialized through a GtkObjectInitFunc need to directly inherit from this structure or at least copy its fields one by one.


GtkArg

typedef struct {
  GType type;
  gchar *name;

  /* this union only defines the required storage types for
   * the possibile values, thus there is no gint enum_data field,
   * because that would just be a mere alias for gint int_data.
   * use the GTK_VALUE_*() and GTK_RETLOC_*() macros to access
   * the discrete memebers.
   */
  union {
    /* flat values */
