Description

Note

This widget is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The gtk.AboutDialog offers a simple way to display information about a program like its logo, name, copyright, website and license. It is also possible to give credits to the authors, documenters, translators and artists who have worked on the program. An about dialog is typically opened when the user selects the HelpAbout menu. All parts of the dialog are optional.

About dialog often contain links and email addresses. gtk.AboutDialog supports this by offering global hooks, which are called when the user clicks on a link or email address, see the gtk.about_dialog_set_email_hook() and gtk.about_dialog_set_url_hook() functions. Email addresses in the authors, documenters and artists properties are recognized by looking for <user@host>, URLs are recognized by looking for http://url, with url extending to the next space, tab or line break.

It is a good idea to use the customary msgid "translator-credits" for this purpose, since translators will already know the purpose of that msgid, and since gtk.AboutDialog will detect if "translator-credits" is untranslated and hide the tab.
