Implemented Interfaces

GtkButtonBox implements AtkImplementorIface, GtkBuildable and GtkOrientable.

Includes

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

Description

The primary purpose of this class is to keep track of the various properties of GtkHButtonBox and GtkVButtonBox widgets.

gtk_button_box_get_child_size() retrieves the minimum width and height for widgets in a given button box.

The internal padding of buttons can be retrieved and changed per button box using gtk_button_box_get_child_ipadding() and gtk_button_box_set_child_ipadding() respectively.

gtk_button_box_get_spacing() and gtk_button_box_set_spacing() retrieve and change default number of pixels between buttons, respectively.

gtk_button_box_get_layout() and gtk_button_box_set_layout() retrieve and alter the method used to spread the buttons in a button box across the container, respectively.

The main purpose of GtkButtonBox is to make sure the children have all the same size. Therefore it ignores the homogeneous property which it inherited from GtkBox, and always behaves as if homogeneous was TRUE.

Since: 2.4


gtk_button_box_set_spacing()

#define gtk_button_box_set_spacing(b,s) gtk_box_set_spacing (GTK_BOX (b), s)

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

Use gtk_box_set_spacing() instead.

Sets the amount of spacing between buttons in a given button box.

Parameters

b

a GtkButtonBox

 

s

the number of pixels of spacing

 

gtk_button_box_set_layout ()

void
gtk_button_box_set_layout (GtkButtonBox *widget,
                           GtkButtonBoxStyle layout_style);

a GtkButtonBox.

 

layout_style

the new layout style.

 

gtk_button_box_set_child_size ()

void
gtk_button_box_set_child_size (GtkButtonBox *widget,
                               gint min_width,
                               gint min_height);

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

This is not supported anymore and can only be set through the theme changing the style properties: "child-min-width" and "child-min-height" instead.

Sets a new default size for the children of a given button box.

Parameters

widget

a GtkButtonBox

 

min_width

a default width for buttons in widget

 

min_height

a default height for buttons in widget

 

gtk_button_box_set_child_ipadding ()

void

gtk_button_box_set_child_secondary ()

void
gtk_button_box_set_child_secondary (GtkButtonBox *widget,

                                    gboolean is_secondary);

Sets whether child should appear in a secondary group of children. A typical use of a secondary child is the help button in a dialog.

This group appears after the other children if the style is GTK_BUTTONBOX_START, GTK_BUTTONBOX_SPREAD or GTK_BUTTONBOX_EDGE, and before the other children if the style is GTK_BUTTONBOX_END. For horizontal button boxes, the definition of before/after depends on direction of the widget (see gtk_widget_set_direction()). If the style is GTK_BUTTONBOX_START or GTK_BUTTONBOX_END, then the secondary children are aligned at the other end of the button box from the main children. For the other styles, they appear immediately next to the main children.

Parameters

widget

a GtkButtonBox

 

child

a child of widget

 

is_secondary

if TRUE, the child appears in a secondary group of the button box.
