Description

The gtk.FontSelection widget lists the available fonts, styles and sizes, allowing the user to select a font. It is used in the gtk.FontSelectionDialog widget to provide a dialog box for selecting fonts. The set_font_name() method sets the initial font selection. The current font selection is retrieved using the get_font_name() method.

The fontselection has a preview area that contains a gtk.Entry that displays text using the currently selected font. The preview text can be retrieved with the get_preview_text() method and set with the set_preview_text() method.

Filters can be used to limit the font selections. There are 2 filters in the gtk.FontSelection - a base filter and a user filter. The base filter cannot be changed by the user, so this can be used when the user must choose from the restricted set of fonts (e.g. for a terminal-type application you may want to force the user to select a fixed-width font). The user filter can be changed or reset by the user, by using the Reset Filter button or changing the options on the Filter page of the widget.
