Implemented Interfaces

GtkFontSelectionDialog implements AtkImplementorIface and GtkBuildable.

Description

The GtkFontSelectionDialog widget is a dialog box for selecting a font.

To set the font which is initially selected, use gtk_font_selection_dialog_set_font_name().

To get the selected font use gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font_name().

To change the text which is shown in the preview area, use gtk_font_selection_dialog_set_preview_text().

GtkFontSelectionDialog as GtkBuildable

The GtkFontSelectionDialog implementation of the GtkBuildable interface exposes the embedded GtkFontSelection as internal child with the name "font_selection". It also exposes the buttons with the names "ok_button", "cancel_button" and "apply_button".

Details

GtkFontSelectionDialog

typedef struct {
  GtkWidget *ok_button;
  GtkWidget *apply_button;
  GtkWidget *cancel_button;
} GtkFontSelectionDialog;

GtkWidget *ok_button;

The OK button of the dialog

GtkWidget *apply_button;

The Apply button of the dialog. This button is hidden by default but you can show/hide it

GtkWidget *cancel_button;

The Cancel button of the dialog

gtk_font_selection_dialog_new ()

GtkWidget*          gtk_font_selection_dialog_new       (const gchar *title);

Creates a new GtkFontSelectionDialog.

title :

the title of the dialog box.

Returns :

a new GtkFontSelectionDialog.

gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font ()

GdkFont*            gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font  (GtkFontSelectionDialog *fsd);

Warning

gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Gets the currently-selected font.

fsd :

a GtkFontSelectionDialog.

Returns :

the currently-selected font, or NULL if no font is selected.

gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font_name ()

gchar*              gtk_font_selection_dialog_get_font_name
                                                        (GtkFontSelectionDialog *fsd);

Gets the currently-selected font name. Note that this can be a different string than what you set with gtk_font_selection_dialog_set_font_name(), as the font selection widget may normalize font names and thus return a string with a different structure. For example, "Helvetica Italic Bold 12" could be normalized to "Helvetica Bold Italic 12". Use pango_font_description_equal() if you want to compare two font descriptions.

fsd :

a GtkFontSelectionDialog

Returns :

A string with the name of the current font, or NULL if no font is selected. You must free this string with g_free().

gtk_font_selection_dialog_set_font_name ()

                                                        (GtkFontSelectionDialog *fsd,
                                                         const gchar *fontname);

Sets the currently-selected font.

a GtkFontSelectionDialog.
