Description

Note

This widget is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The gtk.FileChooserButton is a widget that lets the user select a file. It implements the gtk.FileChooser interface. Visually, it is a file name with a button to bring up a gtk.FileChooserDialog. The user can then use that dialog to change the file associated with that button. This widget does not support setting the "select-multiple" property to True. For example to create a gtk.FileChooserButton and set the current folder to '/etc' use:

  filechooserbutton = gtk.FileChooserButton('Select a File')
  filechooserbutton.set_current_folder('/etc')

The gtk.FileChooserButton supports the gtk.FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_OPEN and gtk.FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_SELECT_FOLDER actions of the GTK FileChooser Action Constants.

Note

The gtk.FileChooserButton will ellipsize the label, and thus will thus request little horizontal space. To give the button more space, you should call the gtk.Widget.size_request() method, the set_width_chars() method, or pack the button in such a way that other interface elements give space to the widget.

Constructor

gtk.FileChooserButton

    gtk.FileChooserButton(title, backend=None)

title :

the title of the browse dialog

backend :

the name of a file system backend or None

Returns :

a new gtk.FileChooserButton

Note

This constructor is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

Creates a new button widget that opens a gtk.FileChooserDialog when clicked. The title of the gtk.FileChooserDialog is specified by title. If backend is specified it is the name of a file system backend.

gtk.FileChooserButton

    gtk.FileChooserButton(dialog)

dialog :

a gtk.FileChooserDialog

Returns :

a new gtk.FileChooserButton

Note

This constructor is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

Creates a new button widget that opens a gtk.FileChooserDialog specified by dialog when clicked.

Methods

gtk.FileChooserButton.get_title

    def get_title()

Returns :

the title of the gtk.FileChooserDialog

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The get_title() method returns the value of the "title" property which contains the title of the associated gtk.FileChooserDialog.

gtk.FileChooserButton.set_title

    def set_title(title)

title :

a string to use as the title of the associated gtk.FileChooserDialog.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The set_title() method sets the "title" property to the value of title. The "title" property contains the title string of the associated gtk.FileChooserDialog.

gtk.FileChooserButton.get_width_chars

    def get_width_chars()

Returns :,  :

the width in characters of the button

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The get_width_chars() method returns the value of the "width-characters" property which contains the number of characters the button width should be set to.

gtk.FileChooserButton.set_width_chars

    def set_width_chars(n_chars)

n_chars :

the width in characters for the button

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The set_width_chars() method sets the "width-chars" property to the value of n_chars. The "width-chars" property contains the width in characters that the button should be set to.

gtk.FileChooserButton.get_focus_on_click

    def get_focus_on_click()

Returns :

True if the button grabs focus when it is clicked with the mouse.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.10 and above.

The get_focus_on_click() method returns the value of the "focus-on-click" property. If the return value is True if the button grabs focus when it is clicked with the mouse. See the set_focus_on_click() method.

gtk.FileChooserButton.set_focus_on_click

    def set_focus_on_click(focus_on_click)

focus_on_click :

If True, the button grabs focus when clicked with the mouse

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.10 and above.

The set_focus_on_click() method sets the "focus-on-click" property to the value of focus_on_click. If focus_on_click is True, the button will grab focus when it is clicked with the mouse. Making mouse clicks not grab focus is useful in places like toolbars where you don't want the keyboard focus removed from the main area of the application.

Signals

The "file-set" gtk.FileChooserButton Signal

    def callback(filechooserbutton, user_param1, ...)

filechooserbutton :

the filechooserbutton that received the signal

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

Note

This signal is available in GTK+ 2.12 and above.

The "file-set" signal is emitted when the user selects a file.

Note that this signal is only emitted when the user changes the file.
