Attributes

"selection"ReadA gtk.gdk.Atom indicating the selection type (e.g. "PRIMARY").
"target"ReadA gtk.gdk.Atom indicating the selection target type (e.g. "TARGETS").
"type"ReadA gtk.gdk.Atom indicating the selection data type (e.g. "STRING").
"format"ReadThe unit length of the data in bits (e.g. 8 for a string or 32 of an integer).
"data"ReadThe data as a string.

Description

A gtk.SelectionData object is used to store information about a chunk of data associated with a selection. In PyGTK the selection data is always a string so the application will have to provide functions to convert the data to and from a string to support data types other than strings and targets. The string and targets types are directly supported using the set_text(), get_text() and get_targets() methods.

Methods

gtk.SelectionData.set

    def set(type, format, data)

type :

a gtk.gdk.Atom or string that specifies a gtk.gdk.Atom

format :

the number of bits in a unit

data :

a string containing the data

The set() method sets the data for a selection in the gtk.SelectionData object. data is a string containing the data to be set; format is the number of bits in a unit of the data (e.g. integer data has a format of 32 on most systems; string data format is 8); and, type is a gtk.gdk.Atom or a string that specifies a gtk.gdk.Atom.

gtk.SelectionData.set_text

    def set_text(str, len)

str :

a string

len :

the length of str, or -1 if str for the full length.

Returns :

True, if the selection was successfully set; otherwise, False.

The set_text() method sets the contents of the selection from the string specified by str. The string is converted to the form specified by the selection_data.target attribute. This method returns True if the selection data was successfully set.

gtk.SelectionData.get_text

    def get_text()

Returns :

a string containing the converted text, or None.

The get_text() method returns the contents of the selection data as a string.

gtk.SelectionData.get_targets

    def get_targets()

Returns :

a tuple containing a list of targets (gtk.gdk.Atoms) or None if no valid targets are available.

The get_targets() method returns a tuple containing a list of valid targets for the selection as a list of gtk.gdk.Atoms or None if there are no valid targets.

gtk.SelectionData.targets_include_text

    def targets_include_text()

Returns :

True if the selection data holds a list of targets, and a suitable target for text is included.

The targets_include_text() method returns True if any of the selection data targets can be used to provide text.

gtk.SelectionData.tree_set_row_drag_data

    def tree_set_row_drag_data(tree_model, path)

tree_model :

a gtk.TreeModel

path :

a row in tree_model

Returns :

True if the gtk.SelectionData had the proper target type to allow us to set a tree row

The tree_set_row_drag_data() method sets the selection data of target type GTK_TREE_MODEL_ROW for the row (specified by path) in the gtk.TreeModel (specified by tree_model). Normally used in a "drag-data-get" signal handler.

gtk.SelectionData.tree_get_row_drag_data

    def tree_get_row_drag_data()

Returns :

a tuple containing a gtk.TreeModel and one of its rows.

The tree_get_row_drag_data() method returns a tuple containing a gtk.TreeModel and a row from that gtk.TreeModel from selection data of target type GTK_TREE_MODEL_ROW. Normally called from a "drag-data-received" signal handler. This method can only be used if the selection data originates from the same process that's calling this method, because a pointer to the tree model is being passed around. In the "drag-data-received" signal handler, you can assume that selection data of type "GTK_TREE_MODEL_ROW" is from the current process.

gtk.SelectionData.set_pixbuf

    def set_pixbuf(pixbuf)

pixbuf :

a gtk.gdk.Pixbuf

Returns :

True, if the selection was successfully set; otherwise, False.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The set_pixbuf() method sets the contents of the selection from the gtk.gdk.Pixbuf specified by pixbuf. This method returns True if the selection data was successfully set.

gtk.SelectionData.get_pixbuf

    def get_pixbuf()

Returns :

if the selection data contained a recognized image type and it could be converted to a gtk.gdk.Pixbuf, a newly allocated pixbuf is returned, or None.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The get_pixbuf() method returns the contents of the selection data as a gtk.gdk.Pixbuf if possible.

gtk.SelectionData.set_uris

    def set_uris(uris)

uris :

a list of strings holding URIs

Returns :

True, if the selection was successfully set; otherwise, False.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The set_uris() method sets the contents of the selection from the list of URIs specified by uris. This method returns True if the selection data was successfully set.

gtk.SelectionData.get_uris

    def get_uris()

Returns :

a list of URIs, or None.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.

The get_uris() method returns the contents of the selection data as a list of URIs.

    def targets_include_image(writable)

writable :

If True only accept targets that GTK+ can convert a gtk.gdk.Pixbuf to.

Returns :

True, if the selection has a list of targets that includes an image target.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.6 and above.
