Description

Note

This object is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

gtk.gdk.Display objects provide two capabilities:

  • To grab/ungrab keyboard focus and mouse pointer
  • To manage and provide information about the gtk.gdk.Screen) objects available for this gtk.gdk.Display

gtk.gdk.Display objects are the GDK representation of the X Display which can be described as a workstation consisting of a keyboard, a pointing device (such as a mouse) and one or more screens. It is used to open and keep track of various gtk.gdk.Screen objects currently instantiated by the application. It is also used to grab and release the keyboard and the mouse pointer.

Constructor

    gtk.gdk.Display(display_name)

display_name :

the name of the display to open

Returns :

a gtk.gdk.Display, or None if the display could not be opened.

Note

This constructor is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

Opens the display with the name specified by display_name and returns a gtk.gdk.Display object wrapping the display..

Methods

gtk.gdk.Display.get_default_screen

    def get_default_screen()

Returns :

the default gtk.gdk.Screen object for display

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The get_default_screen() method returns the default gtk.gdk.Screen for the display

gtk.gdk.Display.pointer_ungrab

    def pointer_ungrab(time_=0L)

time_ :

a timestamp or 0L for the current time.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The pointer_ungrab() method releases any pointer grab held by the display.

gtk.gdk.Display.keyboard_ungrab

    def keyboard_ungrab(time_=0L)

time_ :

a timestamp or 0L for the current time.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The keyboard_ungrab() method releases any keyboard grab held by the display.

gtk.gdk.Display.pointer_is_grabbed

    def pointer_is_grabbed()

Returns :

True if an active X pointer grab is in effect

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The pointer_is_grabbed() method returns True if the pointer is grabbed.

gtk.gdk.Display.beep

    def beep()

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The beep() method emits a short beep on the display.

gtk.gdk.Display.sync

    def sync()

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The sync() method flushes any requests queued for the windowing system and waits until all requests have been handled. This is often used for making sure that the display is synchronized with the current state of the program. This is most useful for X11. On windowing systems where requests are handled synchronously, this method will do nothing.

gtk.gdk.Display.close

    def close()

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The close() method closes the connection to the windowing system for the given display, and cleans up associated resources.

gtk.gdk.Display.list_devices

    def list_devices()

Returns :

a list of gtk.gdk.Device objects.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The list_devices() method returns the list of available input devices attached to the display.

gtk.gdk.Display.get_event

    def get_event()

Returns :

the next gtk.gdk.Event to be processed, or None if no events are pending..

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The get_event() method returns the next gtk.gdk.Event to be processed for the display, fetching events from the windowing system if necessary. The returned gtk.gdk.Event should be freed with the gtk.gdk.Event.free() method

gtk.gdk.Display.peek_event

    def peek_event()

Returns :

a copy of the first gtk.gdk.Event on the event queue, or None if no events are in the queue.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The peek_event() method returns a copy of the first gtk.gdk.Event in the the display's event queue, without removing the event from the queue. (Note that this method will not get more events from the windowing system. It only checks the events that have already been moved to the GDK event queue.) The returned gtk.gdk.Event should be freed with gtk.gdk.Event.free().

gtk.gdk.Display.put_event

    def put_event(event)

event :

a gtk.gdk.Event.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The put_event() method appends a copy of the given event onto the front of the event queue for the display.

gtk.gdk.Display.set_double_click_time

    def set_double_click_time(msec)

msec :

the double click time in milliseconds (thousandths of a second)

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The set_double_click_time() method sets the double click time (two clicks within this time interval count as a double click and result in a gtk.gdk._2BUTTON_PRESS event). Applications should not set this, it is a global user-configured setting.

gtk.gdk.Display.get_core_pointer

    def get_core_pointer()

Returns :

the core pointer device

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The get_core_pointer() method returns the core pointer device for the given display

gtk.gdk.Display.get_pointer

    def get_pointer()

Returns :

a 4-tuple containing the screen that the cursor is on, the root window X and Y coordinates of the pointer and the current modifier mask

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The get_pointer() method returns a 4-tuple containing the gtk.gdk.Screen that the pointer is on, the current location coordinates of the pointer and the current modifier mask for the display. The returned modifier mask is a combination of the GDK Modifier Constants.

gtk.gdk.Display.get_window_at_pointer

    def get_window_at_pointer()

Returns :

a 3-tuple containing the gtk.gdk.Window under the mouse pointer and the x and y coordinates of the window origin

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The get_window_at_pointer() method returns a 3-tuple containing the gtk.gdk.Window underneath the mouse pointer and the location of that window's origin. Returns None if the window under the mouse pointer is not known to GDK (for example, belongs to another application).

gtk.gdk.Display.flush

    def flush()

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The flush() method flushes any requests queued for the windowing system; this happens automatically when the main loop blocks waiting for new events, but if your application is drawing without returning control to the main loop, you may need to call this method explicitly. A common case where this method needs to be called is when an application is executing drawing commands from a thread other than the thread where the main loop is running.

This is most useful for X11. On windowing systems where requests are handled synchronously, this method will do nothing.

gtk.gdk.Display.set_double_click_distance

    def set_double_click_distance(distance)

distance :

the distance in pixels

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The set_double_click_distance() method sets the double click distance (two clicks within this distance count as a double click and result in a gtk.gdk.2BUTTON_PRESS event). See the set_double_click_time() method for more information. Applications should not set this, it is a global user-configured setting.

gtk.gdk.Display.supports_composite

    def supports_composite()

Returns :

True if windows may be composited.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.12 and above.

The supports_composite() method returns True if gtk.gdk.Window.set_composite() can be used to redirect drawing on the window using compositing.

Currently this only works on X11 with XComposite and XDamage extensions available.

gtk.gdk.Display.supports_cursor_alpha

    def supports_cursor_alpha()

Returns :

True if cursors can have alpha channels.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The supports_cursor_alpha() method returns True if cursors can use an 8bit alpha channel on the display. Otherwise, cursors are restricted to bilevel alpha (i.e. a mask).

gtk.gdk.Display.supports_cursor_color

    def supports_cursor_color()

Returns :

True if cursors can have multiple colors.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The supports_cursor_color() method returns True if multicolored cursors are supported on the display. Otherwise, cursors have only a foreground and a background color.

gtk.gdk.Display.get_default_cursor_size

    def get_default_cursor_size()

Returns :

the default cursor size.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The get_default_cursor_size() method returns the default size to use for cursors on the display.

gtk.gdk.Display.get_maximal_cursor_size

    def get_maximal_cursor_size()

Returns :

a 2-tuple containing the maximal cursor width and height

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The get_maximal_cursor_size() method returns a 2-tuple containing the maximum width and height to use for cursors on the display.

gtk.gdk.Display.get_default_group

    def get_default_group()

Returns :

The default group leader window for the display

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The get_default_group() method returns the default group leader window for all toplevel windows on the display. This window is implicitly created by GDK. See the gtk.gdk.Window.set_group() method for more information.

gtk.gdk.Display.supports_selection_notification

    def get_default_group()

Returns :

True if gtk.gdk.EventOwnerChange events will be sent.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The supports_selection_notification() method returns True if gtk.gdk.EventOwnerChange events will be sent when the owner of a selection changes.

gtk.gdk.Display.supports_clipboard_persistence

    def supports_clipboard_persistence()

Returns :

True if the display supports clipboard persistence.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The supports_clipboard_persistence() method Returns whether the specified display supports clipboard persistence; i.e. if it's possible to store the clipboard data after an application has quit. On X11 this checks if a clipboard daemon is running.

gtk.gdk.Display.request_selection_notification

    def request_selection_notification(selection)

selection :

The string (or gtk.gdk.Atom) naming the selection for which ownership change notification is requested

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

a gtk.gdk.Window belonging to the clipboard owner

time :

a timestamp

targets :

a list of targets that should be saved, or None if all available targets should be saved.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The store_clipboard() method issues a request to the the clipboard manager to store the clipboard data. On X11, this is a special program that works according to the freedesktop clipboard specification, available at http://www.freedesktop.org/Standards/clipboard-manager-spec.

Functions

gtk.gdk.display_get_default

    def gtk.gdk.display_get_default()

Returns :

a gtk.gdk.Display, or None if there is no default display.

Note

This function is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The gtk.gdk.display_get_default() function returns the default gtk.gdk.Display. This is a convenience function for:

  display_manager = gtk.gdk.display_manager_get()
  display = display.manager.get_default_display()

Signals

The "closed" gtk.gdk.Display Signal

    def callback(display, is_error, user_param1, ...)
