Description

The gtk.Range is the base class for the gtk.Scale and gtk.Scrollbar widgets. The gtk.Range provides the common functionality for these widgets that allow a user to set a value in a range of values. The gtk.Scale works in conjunction with a gtk.Adjustment which provides the range information.

Methods

gtk.Range.set_update_policy

    def set_update_policy(policy)

policy :

the update policy: gtk.UPDATE_CONTINUOUS, gtk.UPDATE_DISCONTINUOUS, gtk.UPDATE_DELAYED

The set_update_policy() method sets the "update-policy" property to the value specified by policy. The update policy has the following values and effects:

gtk.UPDATE_CONTINUOUS

anytime the range slider is moved, the range value will change and the "value_changed" signal will be emitted.

gtk.UPDATE_DELAYED

the value will be updated after a brief timeout where no slider motion occurs, so value changes are delayed slightly rather than continuously updated.

gtk.UPDATE_DISCONTINUOUS

the value will only be updated when the user releases the button and ends the slider drag operation.

gtk.Range.get_update_policy

    def get_update_policy()

Returns :

the current update policy

The get_update_policy() method gets the value of the "update-policy" property. The update policy is one of: gtk.UPDATE_CONTINUOUS, gtk.UPDATE_DISCONTINUOUS or gtk.UPDATE_DELAYED. See the set_update_policy() method for details.

gtk.Range.set_adjustment

    def set_adjustment(adjustment)

adjustment :

a gtk.Adjustment

The set_adjustment() method sets the "adjustment" property to the value specified by adjustment. The gtk.Adjustment is used as the "model" object for this range widget. adjustment indicates the current range value, the minimum and maximum range values, the step and page increments used for keybindings and scrolling, and the page size. The page size is normally 0 for gtk.Scale and nonzero for gtk.Scrollbar, and indicates the size of the visible area of the widget being scrolled. The page size affects the size of the scrollbar slider.

gtk.Range.get_adjustment

    def get_adjustment()

Returns :

a gtk.Adjustment

The get_adjustment() method returns the value of the "adjustment" property. See the set_adjustment() method for details.

gtk.Range.set_inverted

    def set_inverted(setting)

setting :

if True invert the range

The set_inverted() method sets the "inverted" property to the value specified by setting. If setting is True the normal motion of the range widget is reversed. Ranges normally move from lower to higher values as the slider moves from top to bottom or left to right. Inverted ranges have higher values at the top or left rather than on the bottom or right.

gtk.Range.get_inverted

    def get_inverted()

Returns :

True if the range is inverted

The get_inverted() method returns the value of the "inverted" property that was set by the set_inverted() method.

gtk.Range.set_increments

    def set_increments(step, page)

step :

the step size

page :

the page size

The set_increments() method sets the step and page sizes for the range to the values specified by step and page respectively. The step size is used when the user clicks the gtk.Scrollbar arrows or moves gtk.Scale via the arrow keys. The page size is used for example when moving via Page Up or Page Down keys.

gtk.Range.set_range

    def set_range(min, max)

min :

the minimum range value

max :

the maximum range value

The set_range() method sets the minimum and maximum allowable values for the gtk.Range to that values specified by min and max respectively. If the range has a non-zero page size, it is also forced to be between min and max.

gtk.Range.set_value

    def set_value(value)

value :

the new value of the range

The set_value() method sets the current value of the range to the value specified by value. value will be forced inside the minimum or maximum range values. The range emits the "value_changed" signal if the value changes.

gtk.Range.get_value

    def get_value()

Returns :

the current value of the range.

The get_value() method gets the current value of the range.

gtk.Range.set_fill_level

    def set_fill_level(fill_level)

fill_level :

the new position of the fill level indicator.

The set_fill_level() method sets the new position of the fill level indicator.

The "fill level" is probably best described by its most prominent use case, which is an indicator for the amount of pre-buffering in a streaming media player. In that use case, the value of the range would indicate the current play position, and the fill level would be the position up to which the file/stream has been downloaded.

This amount of prebuffering can be displayed on the range's trough and is themeable separately from the trough. To enable fill level display, use gtk.Range.set_show_fill_level(). The range defaults to not showing the fill level.

Additionally, it's possible to restrict the range's slider position to values which are smaller than the fill level. This is controller by gtk.Range.set_restrict_to_fill_level() and is by default enabled.

gtk.Range.get_fill_level

    def get_fill_level()

Returns :

The current fill level.

The get_fill_level() method gets the current position of the fill level indicator.

gtk.Range.set_restrict_to_fill_level

    def set_restrict_to_fill_level(restrict_to_fill_level)

restrict_to_fill_level :

Whether the fill level restricts slider movement.

The set_restrict_to_fill_level() method sets whether the slider is restricted to the fill level. See gtk.Range.set_fill_level() for a general description of the fill level concept.

gtk.Range.get_restrict_to_fill_level

    def get_restrict_to_fill_level()

Returns :

True if range is restricted to the fill level.

The get_restrict_to_fill_level() method gets whether the range is restricted to the fill level.

gtk.Range.set_show_fill_level

    def set_show_fill_level(show_fill_level)

show_fill_level :

Whether a fill level indicator graphics is shown.

The set_show_fill_level() method sets whether a graphical fill level is show on the trough. See gtk.Range.set_fill_level() for a general description of the fill level concept.

gtk.Range.get_show_fill_level

    def get_show_fill_level()

Returns :

True if range shows the fill level.

The get_show_fill_level() method gets whether the range displays the fill level graphically.

Signals

The "adjust-bounds" gtk.Range Signal

    def callback(range, value, user_param1, ...)

range :

the range that received the signal

value :

the value

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "adjust-bounds" signal is emitted when the range is adjusted by user action. Note the value can be more or less than the range since it depends on the mouse position.

The "change-value" gtk.Range Signal

    def callback(range, scroll, value, user_param1, ...)

range :

the range that received the signal. the object which received the signal.

scroll :

the type of scroll action that was performed - one of the GTK Scroll Type Constants..

value :

the new value resulting from the scroll action.

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

Returns :

True to prevent other handlers from being invoked for the signal or False to propagate the signal further.

Note

This signal is available in GTK+ 2.6 and above.

The "change-value" signal is emitted when a scroll action is performed on a range. It allows an application to determine the type of scroll event that occurred and the resultant new value. The application can handle the event itself and return True to prevent further processing. Or, by returning False, it can pass the event to other handlers until the default GTK+ handler is reached.

The value parameter is unrounded. An application that overrides the "change-value" signal is responsible for clamping the value to the desired number of decimal digits.

It is not possible to use delayed update policies in an overridden "change-value" handler.

The "move-slider" gtk.Range Signal

    def callback(range, scrolltype, user_param1, ...)

range :

the range that received the signal

scrolltype :

the scroll type issued because a key was pressed by the user; one of the GTK Scroll Type Constants.

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "move-slider" signal is emitted when the user presses a key (e.g. Page Up, Home, Right Arrow) to move the slider.

The "value-changed" gtk.Range Signal

    def callback(range, user_param1, ...)

range :

the range that received the signal

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "value-changed" signal is emitted when the range value is changed either programmatically or by user action.
