Description

Note

The gtk.Combo is deprecated in GTK+ 2.4 and PyGTK 2.4 in favor of the gtk.ComboBox.

The gtk.Combo widget consists of a single-line text entry field and a drop-down list. The drop-down list is displayed when the user clicks on a small arrow button to the right of the entry field. The drop-down list is a gtk.List widget and can be accessed using the list attribute of the gtk.Combo. List elements can contain arbitrary widgets, but if an element is not a plain label, then you must use the gtk.List.set_item_string() method. This sets the string which will be placed in the text entry field when the item is selected.

By default, the user can step through the items in the list using the arrow (cursor) keys, though this behavior can be turned off with the set_use_arrows() method. Normally the arrow keys are only active when the contents of the text entry field matches one of the items in the list. If the contents of the entry field do not match any of the list items, then pressing the arrow keys does nothing. However, by calling set_use_arrows_always() you can specify that the arrow keys are always active. If the contents of the entry field does not match any of the items in the list, then pressing the up or down arrow key will set the entry field to the last or first item in the list, respectively.

Note the list attribute references a gtk.List which is a deprecated widget so the combo widget may be changed or deprecated in the future.

Constructor

    gtk.Combo()

Returns :

a combo object*

Creates an new gtk.Combo object.

Methods

gtk.Combo.set_value_in_list

    def set_value_in_list(val, ok_if_empty)

val :

If True the value entered must match one of the values in the list.

ok_if_empty :

If True an empty value is considered valid.

The set_value_in_list() method specifies whether the value entered in the text entry field must match one of the values in the list. This method sets the "value-in-list" property to the value of val and the "allow-empty" property to the value of ok_if_empty.

If val is True the user will not be able to perform any other action (the widget grabs the focus) until a valid value has been entered. If ok_if_empty is True an empty field is considered an acceptable value.

gtk.Combo.set_use_arrows

    def set_use_arrows(val)

val :

If True can be used to navigate through the list items

The set_use_arrows() method sets the "enable-use-arrows" property to the value of val. If val is True the arrows keys can be used to navigate through the list items.

gtk.Combo.set_use_arrows_always

    def set_use_arrows_always(val)

val :

If True the arrow keys will still work even if the text entry field does not match any of the list items.

The set_use_arrows_always() method sets the "enable-arrows-always" property to the values of val. If val is True the arrow keys will work even if the text entry field does not match any of the list items.

gtk.Combo.set_case_sensitive

    def set_case_sensitive(val)

val :

If True the text in the list items is case sensitive.

The set_case_sensitive() method sets the "case-sensitive" property to the value of val. If val is True the text in the combo list items and the text entry field are case sensitive. The default value of "set-case-sensitive" is False.

gtk.Combo.set_item_string

    def set_item_string(item, item_value)

item :

a list item

item_value :

a string to place in the entry field when item is selected

The set_item_string() method sets the string (from item_value) to place in the combo text entry field when the item is selected. This method is only needed if the list item is other than a simple label (e.g. a pixmap).

gtk.Combo.set_popdown_strings

    def set_popdown_strings(strings)

strings :

a list of strings to populate the list

The set_popdown_strings() method is a convenience method that sets the strings used in the popdown list from. strings (a Python list or tuple object).

gtk.Combo.disable_activate

    def disable_activate()

The disable_activate() method prevents the combo from showing the popup list when the entry emits the "activate" signal, i.e. when the Return key is pressed. This may be useful if, for example, you want the Return key to close a dialog instead.
