Description

Note

This widget is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

A gtk.ToolButton is a sub class of gtk.ToolItem that contains a button. Use the gtk.ToolButton() constructor to create a new gtk.ToolButton specifying a widget to use as the icon and a label for the text. Alternatively use the other gtk.ToolButton() constructor to create a gtk.ToolButton from a stock item.

The label of a gtk.ToolButton is determined by the properties "label_widget", "label", and "stock_id". If "label_widget" specifies a gtk.Widget, that widget is used as the label. If "label-widget" is None, then the string in "label" is used as the label. If both "label-widget" and "label" are None, the label is determined by the stock item specified by "stock-id". Finally, if "label-widget", "label" and "stock-id" are all None, the button does not have a label.

The icon of a gtk.ToolButton is determined by the properties "icon-widget" and "stock-id". If "icon-widget" specifies a gtk.Widget, that widget is used as the icon. If "icon-widget" is None, the icon is determined by the stock item specified by "stock-id". If both "icon-widget" and "stock-id" are None, the button does not have an icon.

Constructor

gtk.ToolButton

    gtk.ToolButton(icon_widget=None, label=None)

icon_widget :

a gtk.Widget that will be used as the icon widget, or None

label :

a string that will be used as the label, or None

Returns :

A new gtk.ToolButton

Note

This constructor is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

Creates a new gtk.ToolButton optionally using the icon specified by icon_widget and the label text specified by label. If both icon_widget and label are None, the tool button will be empty.

gtk.ToolButton

    gtk.ToolButton(stock_id)

stock_id :

a string that specifies a stock item

Returns :

A new gtk.ToolButton

Note

This constructor is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

Creates a new gtk.ToolButton using the stock item specified by stock_id to determine the icon and label text. It is an error if stock_id is not a name of a stock item.

Methods

gtk.ToolButton.set_label

    def set_label(label)

label :

a string that will be used as label, or None.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The set_label() method sets the "label" property to the value of label. If the "label_widget" property is None, label will be used as the label of the tool button.

gtk.ToolButton.get_label

    def get_label()

Returns :

The label, or None

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The get_label() method returns the value of the "label" property that is used as the label of the tool button if the "label-widget" property is None.

gtk.ToolButton.set_use_underline

    def set_use_underline(use_underline)

use_underline :

if True, an underline in the label string specifies a mnemonic key for the overflow menu

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The set_use_underline() method sets the "use-underline" property to the value of use_underline. If use_underline is True, an underline in the "label" property indicates that the next character should be used for the mnemonic accelerator key in the overflow menu. For example, if the label property is "_Open" and use_underline is True, the label on the tool button will be "Open" and the item on the overflow menu will have an underlined 'O'. Labels shown on tool buttons never have mnemonics on them; this property only affects the menu item on the overflow menu.

gtk.ToolButton.get_use_underline

    def get_use_underline()

Returns :

True if underscores in the "label" property are used as mnemonics on menu items on the overflow menu.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The get_use_underline() method returns the value of the "use-underline" property. If "use-underline" is True, underscores in the label property are used as mnemonics on menu items on the overflow menu. See the set_use_underline() method for more information.

gtk.ToolButton.set_stock_id

    def set_stock_id(stock_id)

stock_id :

a name of a stock item, or None

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The set_stock_id() method sets the "stock-id" property to the value of stock_id. The stock item specified by stock_id is used to determine the icon and label if not overridden by the "label" and "icon-widget" properties. See the gtk.ToolButton() constructor for more information.

gtk.ToolButton.get_stock_id

    def get_stock_id()

Returns :

the name of the stock item.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The get_stock_id() method returns the value of the "stock-id" property that contains the name of a stock item or None. See the gtk.ToolButton() constructor for more information.

gtk.ToolButton.set_icon_name

    def set_icon_name(icon_name)

icon_name :

a name of a themed icon, or None

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.8 and above.

The set_icon_name() method sets the "icon-name" property to the value of icon_name. The themed icon name specified by icon_name is used to determine the icon for the toolbutton if not overridden by the "label", "stock-id" and "icon-widget" properties. See the gtk.ToolButton() constructor for more information.

In PyGTK 2.10 and above, icon_name may be None to unset the icon name.

gtk.ToolButton.get_icon_name

    def get_icon_name()

Returns :

the name of the stock item.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.8 and above.

The get_icon_name() method returns the value of the "icon_name" property that contains the name of a themed icon or None. See the gtk.ToolButton() constructor for more information.

gtk.ToolButton.set_icon_widget

    def set_icon_widget(icon_widget)

icon_widget :

the widget used as icon, or None

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The set_icon_widget() method sets the "icon-widget" property to the value of icon_widget. If icon_widget specifies a gtk.Widget, it is used as the icon of the tool button. If icon_widget is None the icon is determined by the "stock_id" property. If the "stock_id" property is also None, the tool button will not have an icon.

gtk.ToolButton.get_icon_widget

    def get_icon_widget()

Returns :

The widget used as icon on button, or None.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The get_icon_widget() method returns the value of the "icon-widget" property that contains the gtk.Widget used as the icon on the tool button. See the set_icon_widget() method for more information.

gtk.ToolButton.set_label_widget

    def set_label_widget(label_widget)

label_widget :

the widget used as the label, or None

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The set_label_widget() method sets the "label-widget" property to the gtk.Widget specified by label_widget that will be used as the label for the tool button. If label_widget is None the "label" property is used as label. If "label-widget" and "label" are both None, the label in the stock item determined by the "stock_id" property is used as the label. If "label-widget", "label" and "stock_id" are all None, the tool button will not have a label.

gtk.ToolButton.get_label_widget

    def get_label_widget()

Returns :

The widget used as label on button, or None.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The get_label_widget() method returns the value of the "label-widget" property that is used as the label on the tool button. See the gtk.ToolButton.set_label_widget() method for more information.

Signals

The "clicked" gtk.ToolButton Signal

    def callback(toolbutton, user_param1, ...)

toolbutton :

the toolbutton that received the signal

user_param1 :

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

... :

additional user parameters (if any)

The "clicked" signal is emitted when the tool button is clicked with the mouse or activated with the keyboard.
