Implemented Interfaces

GtkScale implements AtkImplementorIface, GtkBuildable and GtkOrientable.

Includes

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

Description

A GtkScale is a slider control used to select a numeric value. To use it, you'll probably want to investigate the methods on its base class, GtkRange, in addition to the methods for GtkScale itself. To set the value of a scale, you would normally use gtk_range_set_value(). To detect changes to the value, you would normally use the "value_changed" signal.

The GtkScale widget is an abstract class, used only for deriving the subclasses GtkHScale and GtkVScale. To create a scale widget, call gtk_hscale_new_with_range() or gtk_vscale_new_with_range().

GtkScale as GtkBuildable

GtkScale supports a custom <marks> element, which can contain multiple <mark> elements. The "value" and "position" attributes have the same meaning as gtk_scale_add_mark() parameters of the same name. If the element is not empty, its content is taken as the markup to show at the mark. It can be translated with the usual "translatable and "context" attributes.

Functions

gtk_scale_set_digits ()

void
gtk_scale_set_digits (GtkScale *scale,
                      gint digits);

Sets the number of decimal places that are displayed in the value. Also causes the value of the adjustment to be rounded off to this number of digits, so the retrieved value matches the value the user saw.

Parameters

scale

a GtkScale

 

digits

the number of decimal places to display, e.g. use 1 to display 1.0, 2 to display 1.00, etc

 

gtk_scale_set_draw_value ()

void
gtk_scale_set_draw_value (GtkScale *scale,
                          gboolean draw_value);

Specifies whether the current value is displayed as a string next to the slider.

Parameters

scale

a GtkScale

 

draw_value

TRUE to draw the value

 

gtk_scale_set_value_pos ()

void
gtk_scale_set_value_pos (GtkScale *scale,
                         GtkPositionType pos);

Sets the position in which the current value is displayed.

Parameters

scale

a GtkScale

 

pos

the position in which the current value is displayed

 

gtk_scale_get_digits ()

gint
gtk_scale_get_digits (GtkScale *scale);

Gets the number of decimal places that are displayed in the value.

Parameters

scale

a GtkScale

 

Returns

the number of decimal places that are displayed


gtk_scale_get_draw_value ()

gboolean
gtk_scale_get_draw_value (GtkScale *scale);

Returns whether the current value is displayed as a string next to the slider.

Parameters

scale

a GtkScale

 

Returns

whether the current value is displayed as a string


gtk_scale_get_value_pos ()

GtkPositionType
gtk_scale_get_value_pos (GtkScale *scale);

Gets the position in which the current value is displayed.

Parameters

scale

a GtkScale

 

Returns

the position in which the current value is displayed


gtk_scale_get_layout ()

PangoLayout *
gtk_scale_get_layout (GtkScale *scale);

Gets the PangoLayout used to display the scale. The returned object is owned by the scale so does not need to be freed by the caller.

Parameters

scale

A GtkScale

 

Returns

the PangoLayout for this scale, or NULL if the “draw-value” property is FALSE.

[transfer none]

Since: 2.4


gtk_scale_get_layout_offsets ()

void
gtk_scale_get_layout_offsets (GtkScale *scale,
                              gint *x,
                              gint *y);

Obtains the coordinates where the scale will draw the PangoLayout representing the text in the scale. Remember when using the PangoLayout function you need to convert to and from pixels using PANGO_PIXELS() or PANGO_SCALE.

If the “draw-value” property is FALSE, the return values are undefined.

Parameters

scale

a GtkScale

 

x

location to store X offset of layout, or NULL.

[out][allow-none]

y

location to store Y offset of layout, or NULL.

[out][allow-none]

Since: 2.4


gtk_scale_add_mark ()

void
gtk_scale_add_mark (GtkScale *scale,
                    gdouble value,
                    GtkPositionType position,
                    const gchar *markup);

Adds a mark at value .

A mark is indicated visually by drawing a tick mark next to the scale, and GTK+ makes it easy for the user to position the scale exactly at the marks value.

If markup is not NULL, text is shown next to the tick mark.

To remove marks from a scale, use gtk_scale_clear_marks().

Parameters

scale

a GtkScale

 

value

the value at which the mark is placed, must be between the lower and upper limits of the scales' adjustment

 

position

where to draw the mark. For a horizontal scale, GTK_POS_TOP is drawn above the scale, anything else below. For a vertical scale, GTK_POS_LEFT is drawn to the left of the scale, anything else to the right.

 

markup

Text to be shown at the mark, using Pango markup, or NULL.

[allow-none]

Since: 2.16


gtk_scale_clear_marks ()

void
gtk_scale_clear_marks (GtkScale *scale);

Removes any marks that have been added with gtk_scale_add_mark().

Parameters

scale

a GtkScale

 

Since: 2.16

Types and Values

struct GtkScale

struct GtkScale;

The fields of the GtkScale struct should only be accessed via the accessor functions.

Property Details

The “digits” property

  “digits”                   gint

The number of decimal places that are displayed in the value.

  “draw-value”               gboolean

Whether the current value is displayed as a string next to the slider.

Flags: Read / Write

Signal Details

The “format-value” signal

gchar*
user_function (GtkScale *scale,
               gdouble   value,
               gpointer  user_data)

Signal which allows you to change how the scale value is displayed. Connect a signal handler which returns an allocated string representing value . That string will then be used to display the scale's value.

Here's an example signal handler which displays a value 1.0 as with "-->1.0<--".

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
static gchar*
format_value_callback (GtkScale *scale,
                       gdouble   value)
{
  return g_strdup_printf ("-->%0.*g<--",
                          gtk_scale_get_digits (scale), value);
 }

Parameters
