Description

A GtkLinkButton is a GtkButton with a hyperlink, similar to the one used by web browsers, which triggers an action when clicked. It is useful to show quick links to resources.

A link button is created by calling either gtk_link_button_new() or gtk_link_button_new_with_label(). If using the former, the URI you pass to the constructor is used as a label for the widget.

The URI bound to a GtkLinkButton can be set specifically using gtk_link_button_set_uri(), and retrieved using gtk_link_button_get_uri().

GtkLinkButton offers a global hook, which is called when the used clicks on it: see gtk_link_button_set_uri_hook().

GtkLinkButton was added in GTK+ 2.10.

Details

GtkLinkButton

typedef struct _GtkLinkButton GtkLinkButton;

The GtkLinkButton struct contains private data only, and should be manipulated using the functions below.


gtk_link_button_new ()

GtkWidget*          gtk_link_button_new                 (const gchar *uri);

Creates a new GtkLinkButton with the URI as its text.

uri :

a valid URI

Returns :

a new link button widget.

Since 2.10


gtk_link_button_new_with_label ()

GtkWidget*          gtk_link_button_new_with_label      (const gchar *uri,
                                                         const gchar *label);

Creates a new GtkLinkButton containing a label.

uri :

a valid URI

label :

the text of the button

Returns :

a new link button widget.

Since 2.10


gtk_link_button_get_uri ()

const gchar*        gtk_link_button_get_uri             (GtkLinkButton *link_button);

Retrieves the URI set using gtk_link_button_set_uri().

link_button :

a GtkLinkButton

Returns :

a valid URI. The returned string is owned by the link button and should not be modified or freed.

Since 2.10


gtk_link_button_set_uri ()

void                gtk_link_button_set_uri             (GtkLinkButton *link_button,
                                                         const gchar *uri);

Sets uri as the URI where the GtkLinkButton points.

link_button :

a GtkLinkButton

uri :

a valid URI

Since 2.10


GtkLinkButtonUriFunc ()

void                (*GtkLinkButtonUriFunc)             (GtkLinkButton *button,
                                                         const gchar *link_,
                                                         gpointer user_data);

The type of a function which is called when the GtkLinkButton is clicked.

button :

the GtkLinkButton which was clicked

link_ :

user_data :

user data that was passed when the function was registered with gtk_link_button_set_uri_hook()

gtk_link_button_set_uri_hook ()

GtkLinkButtonUriFunc gtk_link_button_set_uri_hook       (GtkLinkButtonUriFunc func,
                                                         gpointer data,
                                                         GDestroyNotify destroy);

Sets func as the function that should be invoked every time a user clicks a GtkLinkButton. This function is called before every callback registered for the "clicked" signal.

func :

a function called each time a GtkLinkButton is clicked, or NULL

data :

user data to be passed to func, or NULL

destroy :

a GDestroyNotify that gets called when data is no longer needed, or NULL

Returns :

the previously set hook function.
