gtk.AccelGroup Signal Prototypes

"accel-activate"

def callback(accelgroup, acceleratable, accel_key, accel_mods, user_param1, ...)

"accel-changed"

def callback(accelgroup, accel_key, accel_mods, closure, user_param1, ...)

Description

A gtk.AccelGroup object groups all the accelerators for the associated window hierarchy (either gtk.Window (or a descendant) or gtk.MenuShell (or a descendant)). Once the gtk.AccelGroup is associated with a window or menu (using gtk.Window.add_accel_group() or gtk.Menu.set_accel_group()), accelerators can be added to the widget or one of its children by using gtk.Widget.add_accelerator() . Accelerators can also be added by using a gtk.ItemFactory.

Note that accelerators are different from mnemonics. Accelerators are shortcuts for activating a menu item; they appear alongside the menu item they're a shortcut for. For example Ctrl+Q might appear alongside the FilesQuit menu item. Mnemonics are shortcuts for GUI elements such as text entries or buttons; they appear as underlined characters. Of course, menu items can have both accelerators and mnemonics.

Constructor

    gtk.AccelGroup()

Returns :

an AccelGroup object

Creates a new gtk.AccelGroup object.

Methods

gtk.AccelGroup.lock

    def lock()

The lock() method locks the accelerator group. preventing its accelerators from being changed during runtime. Refer to gtk.accel_map_change_entry() about runtime accelerator changes.

If called more than once, the accelerator group remains locked until gtk.AccelGroup.unlock() has been called an equivalent number of times.

gtk.AccelGroup.unlock

    def unlock()

The unlock() method undoes the last call to gtk.AccelGroup.lock() for this accelerator group.

gtk.AccelGroup.connect_group

    def connect_group(accel_key, accel_mods, accel_flags, callback)

accel_key :

key value of the accelerator

accel_mods :

modifier combination of the accelerator

accel_flags :

a flag mask to configure this accelerator

callback :

a function or method to be executed upon accelerator activation

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 as connect() and was changed in PyGTK 2.4 and above to connect_group() to avoid conflict with the gobject.GObject.connect() method.

The connect_group() method installs an accelerator in the accelerator group. When the accelerator group is being activated, the function (or method) specified by callback will be invoked if the accelerator key and modifier key match those specified by accel_key and accel_mods.

The value of modifier is a combination of the GDK Modifier Constants. accel_flags is a combination of gtk.ACCEL_VISIBLE and gtk.ACCEL_LOCKED.

The callback function is defined as:

  def callback(accel_group, acceleratable, keyval, modifier)

where accel_group is the accelerator group, acceleratable is the object that the accel_group is attached to (e.g. a gtk.Window), keyval is the accelerator key and modifier is the key modifier. callback returns True if the accelerator was handled by callback.

Note

Due to implementation details, a single function or method can only be connected to one accelerator group.

gtk.AccelGroup.connect_by_path

    def connect_by_path(accel_path, callback)

accel_path :

path used for determining key and modifiers.

callback :

function or method to be executed upon accelerator activation

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above

The connect_by_path() method installs an accelerator in the accelerator group, using an accelerator path to look up the appropriate key and modifiers (see the function gtk.accel_map_add_entry()). When the accelerator group is being activated, the function (or method) specified by callback will be invoked if the accel_key and accel_mods that cause the activation match the key and modifiers for the accelerator path specified by accel_path.

The callback function is defined as:

  def callback(accel_group, acceleratable, keyval, modifier)

where accel_group is the accelerator group, acceleratable is the object that the accel_group is attached to (e.g. a gtk.Window), keyval is the accelerator key and modifier is the key modifier. callback returns True if the accelerator was handled by callback.

gtk.AccelGroup.disconnect_key

    def disconnect_key(accel_key, accel_mods)

accel_key :

key value of the accelerator

accel_mods :

modifier combination of the accelerator

Returns :

True if there was an accelerator which was removed, False otherwise

The disconnect() method removes a previously installed accelerator specified by accel_key and accel_mods from the accelerator group.

gtk.AccelGroup.get_is_locked

    def get_is_locked()

Returns :

True if there are 1 or more locks on the accel_group, False otherwise.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.14 and above.

The get_is_locked() method returns the locked status. Locks are added and removed using lock() and lock().

gtk.AccelGroup.get_modifier_mask

    def get_modifier_mask()

Returns :

the modifier mask for this accel group.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.14 and above.

The get_modifier_mask() method gets a GdkModifierType representing the mask for this accel_group. For example, gtk.gdk.CONTROL_MASK, gtk.gdk.SHIFT_MASK, etc.

Functions

gtk.accelerator_valid

    def gtk.accelerator_valid(keyval, modifiers)

keyval :

a key value

modifiers :

a modifier mask

Returns :

True if the accelerator is valid

The gtk.accelerator_valid() function returns True if the specified keyval and modifiers constitute a valid keyboard accelerator. For example, the ord('a') keyval plus gtk.gdk.CONTROL_MASK is valid - this is a Control+a accelerator. The value of modifiers is a combination of the GDK Modifier Constants.

gtk.accelerator_parse

    def gtk.accelerator_parse(accelerator)

accelerator :

a string representing an accelerator

Returns :

a 2-tuple containing the keyval and modifier mask of the accelerator

The gtk.accelerator_parse() function parses the specified accelerator string and returns a 2-tuple containing the keyval and modifier mask corresponding to accelerator. The format looks like "<Control>a" or "<Shift><Alt>F1" or "<Release>z" (the last one is for key release). The parser is fairly liberal and allows lower or upper case, and also abbreviations such as "<Ctl>" and "<Ctrl>". If the parse fails, the tuple values will both be 0 (zero). See the gtk.accelerator_valid() function for more details.

gtk.accelerator_name

    def gtk.accelerator_name()

accelerator_key :

a key value

accelerator_mods :

a modifier mask

Returns :

a string representing the accelerator or None if not a valid accelerator

The gtk.accelerator_name() function converts the accelerator keyval and modifier mask (specified by accelerator_key and accelerator_mods) into a string parseable by the gtk.accelerator_parse() function. For example, if you pass in ord('q') and gtk.gdk.CONTROL_MASK, this function returns "<Control>q".

gtk.accelerator_set_default_mod_mask

    def gtk.accelerator_set_default_mod_mask(default_mod_mask)

default_mod_mask :

the new default accelerator modifier mask

The gtk.accelerator_set_default_mod_mask() function sets the modifiers (specified by default_mod_mask) that will be considered significant for keyboard accelerators. The default mod mask is gtk.gdk.CONTROL_MASK | gtk.gdk.SHIFT_MASK | gtk.gdk.MOD1_MASK, that is, Control, Shift, and Alt. Other modifiers will by default be ignored by gtk.AccelGroup. You must include at least the three default modifiers in any value you pass to this function. The default mod mask should be changed on application startup, before using any accelerator groups. The value of default_mod_mask is a combination of the GDK Modifier Constants.

gtk.accelerator_get_default_mod_mask

    def gtk.accelerator_get_default_mod_mask()

Returns :

the default accelerator modifier mask

The gtk.accelerator_get_default_mod_mask() function returns the default accelerator modifier mask as set by the gtk.accelerator_set_default_mod_mask() function. See the gtk.accelerator_set_default_mod_mask() function for more detail on modifier masks.

gtk.accelerator_get_label

    def gtk.accelerator_get_label(accelerator_key, accelerator_mods)

accelerator_key :

a key value

accelerator_mods :

a modifier mask

Returns :

a string representing the accelerator

Note

This function is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The gtk.accelerator_get_label() function converts the accelerator keyval and modifier mask specified by accelerator_key and accelerator_mods respectively into a string which can be used to represent the accelerator to the user. The value of accelerator_mods is a combination of the GDK Modifier Constants.

gtk.accel_groups_from_object

    def gtk.accel_groups_from_object(object)

object :

a GObject usually a gtk.Window

Note

This function is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The gtk.accel_groups_from_object() function returns a list of all the gtk.AccelGroup objects attached to the object specified by object.

Signals

The "accel-activate" gtk.AccelGroup Signal

    def callback(accelgroup, acceleratable, accel_key, accel_mods, user_param1, ...)

accelgroup :

the accelgroup that received the signal

acceleratable :
