Description

A gtk.ToggleButton is a gtk.Button that has two stable states: 'pressed-in' ("on" or "active") and "normal" ("off" or "inactive"). The state changes to the alternate state each time the togglebutton is clicked. The state of a gtk.ToggleButton can be set specifically using the set_active() method, and retrieved using the get_active() method. To simply switch the state of a toggle button, use the toggled() method.

Constructor

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

label :

the text to be displayed by the button label including an underscore to indicate the mnemonic character if desired or None if no label is required.

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.ToggleButton widget

Creates a new gtk.ToggleButton widget with the text label specified by label. label will be parsed for underscore characters that indicate mnemonic accelerators. If label is None or not specified, no label will be created.

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.ToggleButton.set_mode

    def set_mode(draw_indicator)

draw_indicator :

if True display the button as an indicator with a label; if False just display as a normal button

The set_mode() method sets the "draw-indicator" property to the value of draw_indicator. If draw_indicator is True the button is displayed as an indicator with a label; otherwise, the button is displayed as a normal button.

This method only affects subclasses of gtk.ToggleButton like gtk.CheckButton and gtk.RadioButton.

gtk.ToggleButton.get_mode

    def get_mode()

Returns :

True if the button is displayed as an indicator with a label; False if displayed as a normal button.

The get_mode() method returns the value of the "draw-indicator" property. If "draw-indicator" is True the button is displayed as an indicator with a label; if False, the button is displayed as a normal button. See the set_mode() method.

gtk.ToggleButton.set_active

    def set_active(is_active)

is_active :

if True the togglebutton state is active ("on")

The set_active() method sets the "active" property to the value of is_active. If is_active is True the gtk.ToggleButton is 'pressed in', and if False it's 'normal'. This method causes the "toggled" signal to be emitted.

gtk.ToggleButton.get_active

    def get_active()

Returns :

True if the togglebutton is active

The get_active() method returns the value of the "active" property. If "active" is True the togglebutton is 'pressed in'; if False, it's 'normal'.

gtk.ToggleButton.toggled

    def toggled()

The toggled() method emits the "toggled" signal on the togglebutton.

gtk.ToggleButton.set_inconsistent

    def set_inconsistent(setting)

setting :

if True the state is inconsistent

The set_inconsistent() method sets the "inconsistent" property to the value of setting. If setting is True the togglebutton is displayed in the inconsistent state - an "in between" state. This method is useful if the user has selected a range of elements (such as some text or spreadsheet cells) that are affected by a toggle button, and the current values in that range are inconsistent and you want to indicate that by setting the toggle button to an "in between" display. Normally you would turn off the inconsistent state again if the user clicks the toggle button.

gtk.ToggleButton.get_inconsistent

    def get_inconsistent()

Returns :

True if the state is inconsistent

The get_inconsistent() method returns the value of the "inconsistent" property. If "inconsistent" is True the togglebutton is displayed in an 'in between' state. See the set_inconsistent() method for more details.

Signals

The "toggled" gtk.ToggleButton Signal

    def callback(togglebutton, user_param1, ...)

togglebutton :

the togglebutton that received the signal

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "toggled" signal is emitted when the togglebutton state changes either programmatically or by user action.
