Description

The gtk.FontSelectionDialog is a dialog box containing a gtk.FontSelection widget that the user can use to select a font according to the desired family, style and size.

The set_font_name() method sets the initial font selection. The current font selection is retrieved using the get_font_name() method. The font selection dialog 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.FontSelectionDialog - 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.

Note

In GTK+ 2.2 and above the gtk.FontSelectionDialog does not have filters, a Reset Filter button or a Filter page.
