It will show an inactive symbolic “find” icon when the search entry is empty, and a symbolic “clear” icon when there is text. Clicking on the “clear” icon will empty the search entry.
Note that the search/clear icon is shown using a secondary icon, and thus does not work if you are using the secondary icon position for some other purpose.
To make filtering appear more reactive, it is a good idea to not react to every change in the entry text immediately, but only after a short delay. To support this, GtkSearchEntry emits the “search-changed” signal which can be used instead of the “changed” signal.
void user_function (GtkSearchEntry *entry, gpointer user_data)
The “search-changed” signal is emitted with a short delay of 150 milliseconds after the last change to the entry text.
the entry on which the signal was emitted
