Implemented Interfaces

GtkRecentChooserDialog implements AtkImplementorIface, GtkBuildable and GtkRecentChooser.

Includes

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

Description

GtkRecentChooserDialog is a dialog box suitable for displaying the recently used documents. This widgets works by putting a GtkRecentChooserWidget inside a GtkDialog. It exposes the GtkRecentChooserIface interface, so you can use all the GtkRecentChooser functions on the recent chooser dialog as well as those for GtkDialog.

Note that GtkRecentChooserDialog does not have any methods of its own. Instead, you should use the functions that work on a GtkRecentChooser.

Typical usage

In the simplest of cases, you can use the following code to use a GtkRecentChooserDialog to select a recently used file:

GtkWidget *dialog;
gint res;

dialog = gtk_recent_chooser_dialog_new ("Recent Documents",
                                        parent_window,
                                        _("_Cancel"),
                                        GTK_RESPONSE_CANCEL,
                                        _("_Open"),
                                        GTK_RESPONSE_ACCEPT,
                                        NULL);

res = gtk_dialog_run (GTK_DIALOG (dialog));
if (res == GTK_RESPONSE_ACCEPT)
  {
    GtkRecentInfo *info;
    GtkRecentChooser *chooser = GTK_RECENT_CHOOSER (dialog);

    info = gtk_recent_chooser_get_current_item (chooser);
    open_file (gtk_recent_info_get_uri (info));
    gtk_recent_info_unref (info);
  }

gtk_widget_destroy (dialog);

Recently used files are supported since GTK+ 2.10.
