Description

Together with a gtk.Plug, a gtk.Socket provides the ability to embed widgets from one process into another process in a fashion that is transparent to the user. One process creates a gtk.Socket widget and, passes the that widget's window ID to the other process, which then creates a gtk.Plug with that window ID. Any widgets contained in the gtk.Plug then will appear inside the first applications window. The socket's window ID is obtained by using the get_id() method. Before using this function, the socket must have been realized, and added to its parent.

When PyGTK is notified that the embedded window has been destroyed, then it will destroy the socket as well. You should always, therefore, be prepared for your sockets to be destroyed at any time when the main event loop is running. The communication between a gtk.Socket and a gtk.Plug follows the XEmbed protocol.

Constructor

    gtk.Socket()

Returns :

the new gtk.Socket.

Creates a new gtk.Socket.

Methods

gtk.Socket.add_id

    def add_id(window_id)

window_id :

the window ID of a client participating in the XEMBED protocol.

The add_id() method adds an XEMBED client specified by window_id, such as a gtk.Plug, to the gtk.Socket. The client may be in the same process or in a different process.

To embed a gtk.Plug in a gtk.Socket, you can either:

gtk.Socket.get_id

    def get_id()

Returns :

the window ID for the socket

The get_id() method gets the window ID of a gtk.Socket widget, which can then be used to create a client embedded inside the socket, for instance with gtk.Plug(). The gtk.Socket must have already be added into a toplevel window before you can make this call.

gtk.Socket.get_plug_window

    def get_plug_window()

Returns :

the window of the plug if available, or None.

The get_plug_window() method retrieves the window of the plug. Use this to check if the plug has been created inside of the socket.

Signals

The "plug-added" gtk.Socket Signal

    def callback(socket, user_param1, ...)

socket :

the socket that received the signal

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "plug-added" signal is emitted when a plug is added to the socket.

The "plug-removed" gtk.Socket Signal

    def callback(socket, user_param1, ...)

socket :

the socket that received the signal

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

Returns :

True if the gtk.Socket should not be destroyed.

The "plug-removed" signal is emitted when a plug is removed from the socket. The default action is to destroy the gtk.Socket widget, so if you want to reuse it you must add a signal handler that returns True.
