Implemented Interfaces

GtkPlug implements AtkImplementorIface and GtkBuildable.

Includes

#include <gtk/gtkx.h>

Description

Together with GtkSocket, GtkPlug provides the ability to embed widgets from one process into another process in a fashion that is transparent to the user. One process creates a GtkSocket widget and passes the ID of that widget’s window to the other process, which then creates a GtkPlug with that window ID. Any widgets contained in the GtkPlug then will appear inside the first application’s window.

The communication between a GtkSocket and a GtkPlug follows the XEmbed Protocol. This protocol has also been implemented in other toolkits, e.g. Qt, allowing the same level of integration when embedding a Qt widget in GTK+ or vice versa.

The GtkPlug and GtkSocket widgets are only available when GTK+ is compiled for the X11 platform and GDK_WINDOWING_X11 is defined. They can only be used on a GdkX11Display. To use GtkPlug and GtkSocket, you need to include the gtk/gtkx.h header.

Functions

gtk_plug_construct ()

void
gtk_plug_construct (GtkPlug *plug,
                    Window socket_id);

Finish the initialization of plug for a given GtkSocket identified by socket_id . This function will generally only be used by classes deriving from GtkPlug.

Parameters

plug

a GtkPlug.

 

socket_id

the XID of the socket’s window.

 

gtk_plug_construct_for_display ()

void
gtk_plug_construct_for_display (GtkPlug *plug,
                                GdkDisplay *display,
                                Window socket_id);

Finish the initialization of plug for a given GtkSocket identified by socket_id which is currently displayed on display . This function will generally only be used by classes deriving from GtkPlug.

Parameters

plug

a GtkPlug.

 

display

the GdkDisplay associated with socket_id ’s GtkSocket.

 

socket_id

the XID of the socket’s window.

 

Since: 2.2


gtk_plug_new ()

GtkWidget *
gtk_plug_new (Window socket_id);

Creates a new plug widget inside the GtkSocket identified by socket_id . If socket_id is 0, the plug is left “unplugged” and can later be plugged into a GtkSocket by gtk_socket_add_id().

Parameters

socket_id

the window ID of the socket, or 0.

 

Returns

the new GtkPlug widget.


gtk_plug_new_for_display ()

GtkWidget *
gtk_plug_new_for_display (GdkDisplay *display,
                          Window socket_id);

Create a new plug widget inside the GtkSocket identified by socket_id.

Parameters

display

the GdkDisplay on which socket_id is displayed

 

socket_id

the XID of the socket’s window.

 

Returns

the new GtkPlug widget.

Since: 2.2


gtk_plug_get_id ()

Window
gtk_plug_get_id (GtkPlug *plug);

Gets the window ID of a GtkPlug widget, which can then be used to embed this window inside another window, for instance with gtk_socket_add_id().

Parameters

plug

a GtkPlug.

 

Returns

the window ID for the plug


gtk_plug_get_embedded ()

gboolean
gtk_plug_get_embedded (GtkPlug *plug);

Determines whether the plug is embedded in a socket.

Parameters

plug

a GtkPlug

 

Returns

TRUE if the plug is embedded in a socket

Since: 2.14


gtk_plug_get_socket_window ()

GdkWindow *
gtk_plug_get_socket_window (GtkPlug *plug);

Retrieves the socket the plug is embedded in.

Parameters

plug

a GtkPlug

 

Returns

the window of the socket, or NULL.

[nullable][transfer none]

Since: 2.14

Types and Values

struct GtkPlug

struct GtkPlug;

Property Details

The “embedded” property

  “embedded”                 gboolean

TRUE if the plug is embedded in a socket.

Flags: Read

Default value: FALSE

Since: 2.12


The “socket-window” property

  “socket-window”            GdkWindow *

The window of the socket the plug is embedded in.

Flags: Read

Since: 2.14

Signal Details

The “embedded” signal

void
user_function (GtkPlug *plug,
               gpointer user_data)

Gets emitted when the plug becomes embedded in a socket.

Parameters

plug

the object on which the signal was emitted

 

user_data

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

 

Flags: Run Last
