Description

The gtk.MenuItem widget implements the appearance and behavior of menu items. The gtk.MenuItem and its derived widget subclasses are the only valid children of menus.

When menu items are selected and activated by a user they can:

  • display a popup menu if they have an associated submenu
  • invoke an associated function or method

As a gtk.MenuItem is a subclass of gtk.Bin it can hold any valid child widget.

Constructor

    gtk.MenuItem(label=None, use_underline=True)

label :

a string to be used as the text of the menu item or None

use_underline :

if True, an underscore in the label text indicates the next character should be underlined and used for the mnemonic accelerator key if it is the first character so marked. Available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

Returns :

a new gtk.MenuItem widget

Creates a new gtk.MenuItem widget and sets the text of the menu item label to the value of label. If label is None no label is created for the menu item. The text of label is parsed for underscore characters that indicate that the next character is a mnemonic accelerator.

In PyGTK 2.4 and above the use_underline parameter is available and defaults to True. If use_underline is set to False the label text will not be parsed for mnemonic characters.

Methods

gtk.MenuItem.set_submenu

    def set_submenu(submenu)

submenu :

the menu to use as the submenu

The set_submenu() method sets the menu specified by submenu as the submenu for the menu item.

gtk.MenuItem.get_submenu

    def get_submenu()

Returns :

the submenu for this menu item, or None if there is no submenu.

The get_submenu() method returns the submenu widget associated with this menu item. If there is no submenu this method returns None. See set_submenu().

gtk.MenuItem.remove_submenu

    def remove_submenu()

The remove_submenu() method removes the submenu associated with the menu item.

gtk.MenuItem.select

    def select()

The select() method emits the "select" signal on the menu item.

gtk.MenuItem.deselect

    def deselect()

The deselect() method emits the "deselect" signal on the menu item.

gtk.MenuItem.activate

    def activate()

The activate() method emits the "activate" signal on the menu item.

gtk.MenuItem.toggle_size_request

    def toggle_size_request()

Returns :

the size requisition

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The toggle_size_request() method emits the "toggle-size-request" signal on the menuitem and returns the size requested for the menuitem.

gtk.MenuItem.toggle_size_allocate

    def toggle_size_allocate(allocation)

allocation :

the allocation size for the menu item

The toggle_size_allocate() method emits the "toggle-size-allocate" signal on the menu item.

gtk.MenuItem.set_right_justified

    def set_right_justified(right_justified)

right_justified :

if True the menu item will appear at the far right if added to a menu bar.

The set_right_justified() method sets the justification of the menu item according to the value of right_justified. If right_justified is True the menu item will appear at the right side of a menu bar. If the widget layout is reversed for a right-to-left language like Hebrew or Arabic, right-justified-menu-items appear on the left.

gtk.MenuItem.get_right_justified

    def get_right_justified()

Returns :

True if the menu item will appear at the far right if added to a menu bar.

The get_right_justified() method gets the justification of the menu item. If True the menu item appears justified at the right side of the menu bar.

gtk.MenuItem.set_accel_path

    def set_accel_path(accel_path)

accel_path :

the accelerator path, corresponding to this menu item

The set_accel_path() method sets the accelerator path on the menu item. The accelerator path provides access to the menu item's accelerator allowing user changes to be identified and saved to persistent storage. See also the gtk.Menu.set_accel_path() method for a more convenient variant of this function. This method is a convenience wrapper that handles calling gtk.Widget.set_accel_path() with the appropriate accelerator group for the menu item.

gtk.MenuItem.get_accel_path

    def get_accel_path()

Returns :

the accelerator path corresponding to this menu item's functionality, or None if not set

The get_accel_path() method gets the accelerator path that was previously set on menu_item.

Signals

The "activate" gtk.MenuItem Signal

    def callback(menuitem, user_param1, ...)

menuitem :

the menuitem that received the signal

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "activate" signal is emitted when the menu item is activated.

The "activate-item" gtk.MenuItem Signal

    def callback(menuitem, user_param1, ...)

menuitem :

the menuitem that received the signal

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "activate-item" signal is emitted when the menu item is activated, but also if the menu item has a submenu. For normal applications, the relevant signal is "activate".

The "toggle-size-allocate" gtk.MenuItem Signal

    def callback(menuitem, allocation, user_param1, ...)

menuitem :

the menuitem that received the signal

allocation :

the size allocation for the menuitem

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "toggle-size-allocate" signal is emitted when the size allocation is changed.

The "toggle-size-request" gtk.MenuItem Signal

    def callback(menuitem, requisition, user_param1, ...)

menuitem :

the menuitem that received the signal

requisition :

the pointer to the location to put the size request

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "toggle-size-request" signal is emitted when a new size request is needed.
