Description

The gtk.TreeViewColumn object is a visible column in a gtk.TreeView widget. A gtk.TreeViewColumn manages the display of the header and the cells using a gtk.CellRenderer.

In PyGTK 2.4 gtk.TreeViewColumn implementes the gtk.CellLayout interface.

Constructor

    gtk.TreeViewColumn(title=None, cell_renderer=None, ...)

title :

the header title string

cell_renderer :

a gtk.CellRenderer

... :

zero or more attribute=column pairs

Returns :

A newly created gtk.TreeViewColumn.

Creates a new gtk.TreeViewColumn with the header string specified by title and using the gtk.CellRenderer specified by cell_renderer. Zero or more attribute=column pairs may be added to specify from which tree model column to retrieve the attribute value. For example:

  column = gtk.TreeViewColumn('Column Title', cell_renderer, text=0, foreground=1)

will retrieve the 'text' attribute values for the cell renderer from column 0 in the treemodel and the 'foreground' attribute values from column 1. See the add_attribute() method for more detail.

Methods

gtk.TreeViewColumn.pack_start

    def pack_start(cell, expand=True)

cell :

a gtk.CellRenderer.

expand :

if True cell is to be given the extra space allocated to the cell box.

The pack_start() method packs the gtk.CellRenderer specified by cell into the beginning column. If expand is True, then the cell is allocated a share of all available space that the column is allocated. Note expand defaults to True in PyGTK 2.4.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.pack_end

    def pack_end(cell, expand=True)

cell :

a gtk.CellRenderer.

expand :

if True cell is to be given the extra space allocated to the cell box.

The pack_end() method packs the gtk.CellRenderer specified by cell into the column. If expand is True, then the cell is allocated a share of all available space that the column is allocated. Note expand defaults to True in PyGTK 2.4.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.clear

    def clear()

The clear() method unsets all the mappings on all renderers on the column.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_cell_renderers

    def get_cell_renderers()

Returns :

a list of gtk.CellRenderer objects

The get_cell_renderers() method returns a list containing all the cell renderers in the column, in no particular order.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.add_attribute

    def add_attribute(cell_renderer, attribute, column)

cell_renderer :

the gtk.CellRenderer to set attributes on

attribute :

an attribute on the renderer

column :

the column position on the model to get the attribute from.

The add_attribute() method adds an attribute mapping to the list in the tree column. The column is the column of the tree model to get a value from, and the attribute is the parameter on cell_renderer to be set from the value. So for example if column 2 of the model contains strings, you could have the "text" attribute of a gtk.CellRendererText get its values from column 2.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_attributes

    def set_attributes(cell_renderer, ...)

cell_renderer :

the gtk.CellRenderer we're setting the attributes of

... :

zero or more attribute=column pairs

The set_attributes() method sets the attribute locations of the gtk.CellRenderer specified by cell_renderer using the attribute=column pairs (e.g. text=0, foreground=1). See the add_attribute() method for more detail. All existing cell attributes are removed, and replaced with the new attributes.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_cell_data_func

    def set_cell_data_func(cell_renderer, func, func_data=None)

cell_renderer :

a gtk.CellRenderer

func :

the function or method to use.

func_data :

the user data to pass when calling func.

The set_cell_data_func() method sets the data function (or method) to use for the column gtk.CellRenderer specified by cell_renderer. This function (or method) is used instead of the standard attribute mappings for setting the column values, and should set the attributes of the cell renderer as appropriate. func may be None to remove the current data function. The signature of func is:

    def celldatafunction(column, cell, model, iter, user_data)
def celldatamethod(self, column, cell, model, iter, user_data)

where column is the gtk.TreeViewColumn in the treeview, cell is the gtk.CellRenderer for column, model is the gtk.TreeModel for the treeview and iter is the gtk.TreeIter pointing at the row.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.clear_attributes

    def clear_attributes(cell_renderer)

cell_renderer :

a gtk.CellRenderer to clear the attribute mapping on.

The clear_attributes() method clears all existing attributes previously set with the set_attributes() method.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_spacing

    def set_spacing(spacing)

spacing :

the distance between cell renderers in pixels.

The set_spacing() method sets the spacing field of the treeview column, which is the number of pixels to place between cell renderers packed into it.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_spacing

    def get_spacing()

Returns :

the spacing of the treeview column.

The get_spacing() method returns the spacing of the treeview column.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_visible

    def set_visible(visible)

visible :

if True the treeview column is visible.

The set_visible() method sets the "visible" property to the value of visible. If visible is True the treeview column is visible

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_visible

    def get_visible()

Returns :

True if the column is visible

The get_visible() method returns the value of the "visible" property. If "visible" is True the treeview column is visible.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_resizable

    def set_resizable(resizable)

resizable :

if True, the column can be resized

The set_resizable() method sets the "resizable" property to the value of resizable. If resizable is True the user can explicitly resize the column by grabbing the outer edge of the column button. If resizable is True and the sizing mode of the column is gtk.TREE_VIEW_COLUMN_AUTOSIZE, the sizing mode is changed to gtk.TREE_VIEW_COLUMN_GROW_ONLY.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_resizable

    def get_resizable()

Returns :

True, if the treeview column can be resized.

The get_resizable() method returns the value of the "resizable" property. If "resizable" is True, the treeview column can be resized by the user.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_sizing

    def set_sizing(type)

type :

The treeview column sizing: gtk.TREE_VIEW_COLUMN_GROW_ONLY, gtk.TREE_VIEW_COLUMN_AUTOSIZE or gtk.TREE_VIEW_COLUMN_FIXED.

The set_sizing() method sets the "sizing" property to the value of type. The value of type must be one of the GTK TreeViewColumn Sizing Constants.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_sizing

    def get_sizing()

Returns :

the treeview column sizing type.

The get_sizing() method returns the value of the "sizing" property that contains the current type of the treeview column sizing mode. See the set_sizing() method for more detail.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_width

    def get_width()

Returns :

the current width of the treeview column.

The get_width() method returns the value of the "width" property that contains the current size of the treeview column in pixels.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_fixed_width

    def get_fixed_width()

Returns :

the fixed width of the treeview column

The get_fixed_width() method returns the value of the "fixed-width" property that contains the fixed width of the treeview column i.e. the width of the treeview column only if the sizing type is gtk.TREE_VIEW_COLUMN_FIXED.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_fixed_width

    def set_fixed_width(fixed_width)

fixed_width :

the size to set the treeview column to. Must be greater than 0.

The set_fixed_width() method sets the "fixed-width" property to the value of fixed_width. The value of fixed_width is the size of the column in pixels. This is meaningful only if the sizing type is gtk.TREE_VIEW_COLUMN_FIXED. The size of the column is clamped to the min and max width for the column. Please note that the min and max width of the column doesn't actually affect the "fixed_width" property of the widget, just the actual size when displayed.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_min_width

    def set_min_width(min_width)

min_width :

the minimum width of the treeview column in pixels, or -1.

The set_min_width() method sets the "min-width" property to the value of min_width. The value of min_width is the minimum width of the treeview column. If min_width is -1, then the minimum width is unset.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_min_width

    def get_min_width()

Returns :

the minimum width of the treeview column.

The get_min_width() method returns the value of the "min-width" property that contains the minimum width in pixels of the treeview column, or -1 if no minimum width is set.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_max_width

    def set_max_width(max_width)

max_width :

the maximum width of the column in pixels, or -1.

The set_max_width() method sets the "max-width" property to the value of max_width. The value of max_width becomes the maximum width of the treeview column. If max_width is -1, then the maximum width is unset. Note, the column can actually be wider than max width if it's the last column in a view. In this case, the column expands to fill any extra space.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_max_width

    def get_max_width()

Returns :

the maximum width of the treeview column.

The get_max_width() method returns the value of the "max-width" property that contains the maximum width in pixels of the treeview column, or -1 if no maximum width is set.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.clicked

    def clicked()

The clicked() method emits the "clicked" signal on the treeview column. The treeview column must be clickable.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_title

    def set_title(title)

title :

the title string of the treeview column.

The set_title() method sets the "title" property to the value of title. The "title" property contains the string that is used to set the treeview column title. If a custom widget has been set (see the set_widget() method), this value is ignored.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_title

    def get_title()

Returns :

the title of the column.

The get_title() method returns the value of the "title" property that contains the treeview column title.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_expand

    def set_expand(expand)

expand :

if True the column expands to take extra space if available.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The set_expand() method sets the "expand" property to the value of expand. If expand is True the column expands to take available extra space. This space is shared equally among all columns that have their "expand" property set to True. If no column has this option set, then the last column gets all extra space. By default, every column is created with this False.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_expand

    def get_expand()

Returns :

True, if the column expands

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The get_expand() method returns the value of the "expand" property. If "expand is True if the column expands to take any available space.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_clickable

    def set_clickable(active)

active :

if True the treeview column header can be clicked

The set_clickable() method sets the "clickable" property to the value of active. If active is True the header can take keyboard focus, and be clicked.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_clickable

    def get_clickable()

Returns :

True if the user can click the column header.

The get_clickable() method returns the value of the "clickable" property. If "clickable" is True the user can click on the header for the treeview column.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_widget

    def set_widget(widget)

widget :

a child gtk.Widget.

The set_widget() method sets the widget in the header to be widget.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_widget

    def get_widget()

Returns :

the gtk.Widget in the column header, or None

The get_widget() method returns the gtk.Widget in the button on the column header. If a custom widget has not been set using the set_widget() method None is returned.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_alignment

    def set_alignment(xalign)

xalign :

the horizontal alignment, in the range 0.0 to 1.0 inclusive.

The set_alignment() method sets the "alignment" property to the value of xalign. xalign specifies the alignment of the title or custom widget inside the column header. The alignment value specifies the fraction of free space to the left of the widget.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_alignment

    def get_alignment()

Returns :

the current alignment of the treeview column.

The get_alignment() method returns the value of the "alignment" property that contains the current horizontal alignment of the treeview column. See the set_alignment() method for more detail.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_reorderable

    def set_reorderable(reorderable)

reorderable :

if True, the column can be reordered.

The set_reorderable() method sets the "reorderable" property to the value of reorderable. If reorderable is True, the column can be reordered by the end user dragging the header.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_reorderable

    def get_reorderable()

Returns :

True if the treeview column can be reordered by the user.

The get_reorderable() method returns the value of the "reorderable" property. If "reorderable" is True the treeview column can be reordered by the user.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_sort_column_id

    def set_sort_column_id(sort_column_id)

sort_column_id :

the logical column ID of the model to sort on or -1.

The set_sort_column_id() method is a convenience method that sets the column's sort column ID to the value specified by sort_column_id (an integer value). The treeview model sorts on the sort_column_id when this treeview column is selected for sorting. This method also makes the treeview column header clickable. If sort_column_id is -1 sorting using the treeview column is disabled.

This method sets up a number of callbacks that manage the sorting of the tree model when the column header is clicked. These callbacks provide toggling of the sort order, enabling the sort indicator and so on.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_sort_column_id

    def get_sort_column_id()

Returns :

the current column ID for this column, or -1 if this column can't be used for sorting.

The get_sort_column_id() method returns the logical column ID that the model sorts on when this column is selected for sorting. See the set_sort_column_id() method.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_sort_indicator

    def set_sort_indicator(setting)

setting :

if True display an indicator that the column is sorted

The set_sort_indicator() method sets the "sort-indicator" property to the value of setting. If setting is True an arrow is displayed in the header button when the column is sorted. Call the set_sort_order() to change the direction of the arrow.

Note

If the set_sort_column_id() convenience method has been called the visibility of the sort indicator will be managed automatically. See the set_sort_order() method for more information.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_sort_indicator

    def get_sort_indicator()

Returns :

True if the sort indicator arrow is displayed

The get_sort_indicator() method returns the value of the "sort-indicator" property. If "sort-indicator" is True an arrow is displayed in the header button when the column is sorted.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_sort_order

    def set_sort_order(order)

order :

the sort order that the sort indicator should indicate

The set_sort_order() method set the "sort-order" property to the value of order. The value of order must be either: gtk.SORT_ASCENDING or gtk.SORT_DESCENDING. This method changes the appearance of the sort indicator.

Note

This method does not actually sort the model. Use the set_sort_column_id() method if you want automatic sorting support. This method is primarily for custom sorting behavior, and should be used in conjunction with the set_sort_column_id() method to do that. For custom models, the mechanism will vary.

The sort indicator changes direction to indicate normal sort or reverse sort. Of course, you must have the sort indicator enabled to see anything when calling this method; see the set_sort_indicator() method.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_sort_order

    def get_sort_order()

Returns :

the sort order the sort indicator is indicating

The get_sort_order() method returns the value of the "sort-order" property that indicates in which direction the treeview column is sorted. See the set_sort_order() method for more detail.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.cell_set_cell_data

    def cell_set_cell_data(tree_model, iter, is_expander, is_expanded)

tree_model :

the gtk.TreeModel to get the cell renderer's attributes from.

iter :

the gtk.TreeIter to get the cell renderer's attributes from.

is_expander :

if True, the row has children

is_expanded :

if True, the row has visible children

The cell_set_cell_data() method sets the cell renderer attributes based on the specified tree_model and iter. That is, for every attribute mapping in the treeview column, it will get a value from the set column in the iter, and use that value to set the attribute on the cell renderer. If is_expander is True the tree model row has children that may or may not be displayed. If is_expanded is True the tree model row has children that are displayed.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.cell_get_size

    def cell_get_size(cell_area=(0,0,0,0))

cell_area :

an optional 4-tuple or 4-list or gtk.gdk.Rectangle specifying the area allocated for a cell in the column

Returns :

a tuple containing five values: a gtk.gdk.Rectangle holding the area a cell in the column will be allocated; the x offset of the cell; the y offset of the cell; the cell width; and, the cell height

The cell_get_size() method returns a tuple containing:

  • a gtk.gdk.Rectangle holding the area a cell in the treeview column will be allocated.
  • the x offset of the cell relative to cell_area.
  • the y offset of the cell relative to cell_area.
  • the width of the cell.
  • the height of the cell.

This method is used primarily by the gtk.TreeView.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.cell_is_visible

    def cell_is_visible()

Returns :

True, if any of the cells packed into the treeview column are currently visible

The cell_is_visible() method returns True if any of the cells packed into the treeview column are visible. For this to be meaningful, you must first initialize the cells with the cell_set_cell_data() method.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.focus_cell

    def focus_cell(cell)

cell :

a gtk.CellRenderer

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The focus_cell() method sets the current keyboard focus to be at cell, if the column contains 2 or more editable and activatable cells.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.cell_get_position

    def cell_get_position(cell_renderer)

cell_renderer :

a gtk.CellRenderer

Returns :

a 2-tuple containing the horizontal position and size of a cell or None

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The cell_get_position() method returns the horizontal position and size of the cell specified by cell_renderer. If the cell is not found in the column, None is returned.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.queue_resize

    def queue_resize()

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.8 and above.

The queue_resize() method flags the column, and the cell renderers added to this column, to have their sizes renegotiated.

gtk.TreeViewColumn.get_tree_view

    def get_tree_view()

Returns :

The tree view wherein column has been inserted if any, Noneotherwise.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.12 and above.

The get_tree_view() method returns the gtk.TreeView wherein tree_column has been inserted. If column is currently not inserted in any tree view, None is returned.

Signals

The "clicked" gtk.TreeViewColumn Signal

    def callback(treeviewcolumn, user_param1, ...)

treeviewcolumn :

the treeviewcolumn 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 user clicks on the treeviewcolumn header button.
