Description

A gtk.Assistant is a widget used to guide the user through a complex operation by breaking it into several steps. Each step is generally handled by one assistant page. The assistant controls the page flow to collect the necessary data to complete the application task.

Constructor

gtk.Assistant

    gtk.Assistant()

Returns :

a new gtk.Assistant object.

Note

This constructor is available in PyGTK 2.10 and above.

Creates a new gtk.Assistant.

Methods

gtk.Assistant.get_current_page

    def get_current_page()

Returns :,  :

gtk.Assistant.set_current_page

    def set_current_page(page_num)

page_num :

the index of the page to switch to, starting from 0. If negative, the last page will be used. If greater than the number of pages in the assistant, there will be no change.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.10 and above.

The set_current_page() method switches the page to the page specified by page_num. Note that this will only be necessary in custom buttons, as the assistant flow can be set with the set_forward_page_func() method.

page_num :

The index of a page in the assistant, or -1 to get the last page;

Returns :

The child widget, or None if page_num is out of bounds.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.10 and above.

a gtk.Widget

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.10 and above.

The add_action_widget() method adds the widget specified by child to the action area of the assistant.

gtk.Assistant.remove_action_widget

    def remove_action_widget(child)

child :

a gtk.Widget

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.10 and above.

The remove_action_widget() method removes the widget specified by child from the action area of the assistant.

gtk.Assistant.update_buttons_state

    def update_buttons_state()

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.10 and above.

The update_buttons_state() method forces the assistant to recompute the state of its buttons.

PyGTK automatically takes care of this in most situations, e.g. when the user goes to a different page, or when the visibility or completeness of a page changes.

One situation where it can be necessary to call this function is when changing a value on the current page affects the future page flow of the assistant.

Signals

The "apply" Signal

    def callback(assistant, user_param1, ...)

assistant :

the gtk.Assistant that received the signal

user_param1 :

the first user parameter (if any) specified with the connect() method

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "apply" signal is emitted when the apply button is clicked. The default behavior of the gtk.Assistant is to switch to the page after the current page, unless the current page is the last one.

A handler for the "apply" signal should carry out the actions for which the wizard has collected data. If the action takes a long time to complete, you might consider to put a page of type gtk.ASSISTANT_PAGE_PROGRESS after the confirmation page and handle this operation within the "prepare" signal of the progress page.

The "cancel" Signal

    def callback(assistant, user_param1, ...)

assistant :

the gtk.Assistant that received the signal

user_param1 :

the first user parameter (if any) specified with the connect() method

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "cancel" signal is emitted when the cancel button is clicked.

The "close" Signal

    def callback(assistant, user_param1, ...)

assistant :

the gtk.Assistant that received the signal

user_param1 :

the first user parameter (if any) specified with the connect() method

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "close" signal is emitted either when the close button of a summary page is clicked, or when the apply button in the last page in the flow (of type gtk.ASSISTANT_PAGE_CONFIRM) is clicked.

The "prepare" Signal

    def callback(assistant, page, user_param1, ...)

assistant :

the gtk.Assistant that received the signal

page :

the new page to prepare for display

user_param1 :

the first user parameter (if any) specified with the connect() method

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "prepare" signal is emitted when a new page is set as the assistant's current page, but before making the new page visible. A handler for this signal can do any preparation that are necessary before showing page.
