Description

The GtkAdjustment object represents a value which has an associated lower and upper bound, together with step and page increments, and a page size. It is used within several GTK+ widgets, including GtkSpinButton, GtkViewport, and GtkRange (which is a base class for GtkHScrollbar, GtkVScrollbar, GtkHScale, and GtkVScale).

The GtkAdjustment object does not update the value itself. Instead it is left up to the owner of the GtkAdjustment to control the value.

The owner of the GtkAdjustment typically calls the gtk_adjustment_value_changed() and gtk_adjustment_changed() functions after changing the value and its bounds. This results in the emission of the "value_changed" or "changed" signal respectively.

Functions

gtk_adjustment_new ()

GtkObject *
gtk_adjustment_new (gdouble value,
                    gdouble lower,
                    gdouble upper,
                    gdouble step_increment,
                    gdouble page_increment,
                    gdouble page_size);

Creates a new GtkAdjustment.

Parameters

value

the initial value.

 

lower

the minimum value.

 

upper

the maximum value.

 

step_increment

the step increment.

 

page_increment

the page increment.

 

page_size

the page size.

 

Returns

a new GtkAdjustment.


gtk_adjustment_get_value ()

gdouble
gtk_adjustment_get_value (GtkAdjustment *adjustment);

Gets the current value of the adjustment. See gtk_adjustment_set_value().

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment

 

Returns

The current value of the adjustment.


gtk_adjustment_set_value ()

void
gtk_adjustment_set_value (GtkAdjustment *adjustment,
                          gdouble value);

Sets the GtkAdjustment value. The value is clamped to lie between adjustment->lower and adjustment->upper.

Note that for adjustments which are used in a GtkScrollbar, the effective range of allowed values goes from adjustment->lower to adjustment->upper - adjustment->page_size.

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment.

 

value

the new value.

 

gtk_adjustment_clamp_page ()

void
gtk_adjustment_clamp_page (GtkAdjustment *adjustment,
                           gdouble lower,
                           gdouble upper);

Updates the GtkAdjustment value to ensure that the range between lower and upper is in the current page (i.e. between value and value + page_size). If the range is larger than the page size, then only the start of it will be in the current page. A "changed" signal will be emitted if the value is changed.

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment.

 

lower

the lower value.

 

upper

the upper value.

 

gtk_adjustment_changed ()

void
gtk_adjustment_changed (GtkAdjustment *adjustment);

Emits a "changed" signal from the GtkAdjustment. This is typically called by the owner of the GtkAdjustment after it has changed any of the GtkAdjustment fields other than the value.

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment

 

gtk_adjustment_value_changed ()

void
gtk_adjustment_value_changed (GtkAdjustment *adjustment);

Emits a "value_changed" signal from the GtkAdjustment. This is typically called by the owner of the GtkAdjustment after it has changed the GtkAdjustment value field.

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment

 

gtk_adjustment_configure ()

void
gtk_adjustment_configure (GtkAdjustment *adjustment,
                          gdouble value,
                          gdouble lower,
                          gdouble upper,
                          gdouble step_increment,
                          gdouble page_increment,
                          gdouble page_size);

Sets all properties of the adjustment at once.

Use this function to avoid multiple emissions of the "changed" signal. See gtk_adjustment_set_lower() for an alternative way of compressing multiple emissions of "changed" into one.

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment

 

value

the new value

 

lower

the new minimum value

 

upper

the new maximum value

 

step_increment

the new step increment

 

page_increment

the new page increment

 

page_size

the new page size

 

Since: 2.14

gdouble
gtk_adjustment_get_lower (GtkAdjustment *adjustment);

Retrieves the minimum value of the adjustment.

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment

 

Returns

The current minimum value of the adjustment.

Since: 2.14


gtk_adjustment_get_page_increment ()

gdouble
gtk_adjustment_get_page_increment (GtkAdjustment *adjustment);

Retrieves the page increment of the adjustment.

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment

 

Returns

The current page increment of the adjustment.

Since: 2.14


gtk_adjustment_get_page_size ()

gdouble
gtk_adjustment_get_page_size (GtkAdjustment *adjustment);

Retrieves the page size of the adjustment.

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment

 

Returns

The current page size of the adjustment.

Since: 2.14


gtk_adjustment_get_step_increment ()

gdouble
gtk_adjustment_get_step_increment (GtkAdjustment *adjustment);

Retrieves the step increment of the adjustment.

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment

 

Returns

The current step increment of the adjustment.

Since: 2.14


gtk_adjustment_get_upper ()

gdouble
gtk_adjustment_get_upper (GtkAdjustment *adjustment);

Retrieves the maximum value of the adjustment.

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment

 

Returns

The current maximum value of the adjustment.

Since: 2.14


gtk_adjustment_set_lower ()

void
gtk_adjustment_set_lower (GtkAdjustment *adjustment,
                          gdouble lower);

Sets the minimum value of the adjustment.

When setting multiple adjustment properties via their individual setters, multiple "changed" signals will be emitted. However, since the emission of the "changed" signal is tied to the emission of the "GObject::notify" signals of the changed properties, it's possible to compress the "changed" signals into one by calling g_object_freeze_notify() and g_object_thaw_notify() around the calls to the individual setters.

Alternatively, using a single g_object_set() for all the properties to change, or using gtk_adjustment_configure() has the same effect of compressing "changed" emissions.

Parameters

adjustment

a GtkAdjustment

 

lower

the new minimum value

 

Since: 2.14


gtk_adjustment_set_page_increment ()

gtk_adjustment_set_page_increment (GtkAdjustment *adjustment,

Types and Values

struct GtkAdjustment

struct GtkAdjustment;

The GtkAdjustment struct contains the following fields.

gdouble lower; the minimum value.
gdouble upper; the maximum value.
gdouble value; the current value.
gdouble step_increment; the increment to use to make minor changes to the value. In a GtkScrollbar this increment is used when the mouse is clicked on the arrows at the top and bottom of the scrollbar, to scroll by a small amount.
gdouble page_increment; the increment to use to make major changes to the value. In a GtkScrollbar this increment is used when the mouse is clicked in the trough, to scroll by a large amount.
gdouble page_size; the page size. In a GtkScrollbar this is the size of the area which is currently visible.
