GtkTreeView widget

Here is a diagram courtesy of Owen Taylor that pictures the relationship between tree view columns and cell renderers:. It does this with columns and cell renderers.

Creating a tree store operates almost exactly the same. If you do time-consuming operations within a cell data function, gtl are not going to be fast, especially if you have a lot of rows. The integer will then automatically be converted into a string before the cell renderer property is set [1].

Once the GtkTreeView widget has a model, it will need to know how to display the model.

The TreeView widget

Cell data functions are often used if you want more fine-grained control over what is to be displayed, or if the standard way to display tutprial is not quite like you want it to be. ListStorehiding some tutogial to the view. This code checks if there is some item left in the list.

Obviously, we can remove items only if there is at least one left in the list. Tree view columns, however, do not display anything by themselves, this is done by specialised GtkCellRenderer objects. Gtm “text” property contains the string to be rendered.


From Wikibooks, open books for an open world. TreeStore and provide a way of displaying and manipulating data in many ways, including:. TreeModelFilter and give it a model to filter, but the easiest way is to spawn it directly from the filtered model, using the Gtk.

GTK+ By Example/Tree View/Columns and Renderers

Most applications will need to not only deal with displaying data, but also receiving input events from users.

It can be used to set the data in any or all columns in a given row. Both will be ‘added’ together to render the string in question, only that the text cell renderer properties will be applied to the whole string. Although you can theoretically implement your own Model, you will normally use either the Gtk.

In the example, a text cell renderer’s “text” property has been linked to the first model column. You might notice that your cell data function is called at times even for rows that are not visible at the moment. Should it render it as a string of “True” or “False”, “On” or “Off”, or should it be rendered as a checkbox? tereview

A column of a Gtk. They handle data that are displayed in the GtkTreeView widget. A cell data function is a function that is called for a specific cell renderer for each single row before that row is rendered.

While there are several different models to choose from, there is only one view widget to deal with. This works similar with any other attribute, only that you need to adjust the data type for the property of course e. We have only one column treevisw the header of treeviww column is hidden.


It needs a GtkTreeModel to know where to retrieve its data from. TreeStorea path is a list of indexes or a string.

You would then connect these columns with the “foreground” and “foreground-set” properties of each renderer. Adding data to the model is done using Gtk.

TreeModel can be used by more than one Gtk. Sorting by clicking on columns Setting up a Gtk. The following code will pack an icon and some text treevuew the same tree view column:.

Both attributes and a cell data function are used for demonstration purposes. Lastly, you can set a cell renderer property when you create the cell renderer. It gives you maximum control over what exactly is going to be rendered, as you can set the cell renderer’s properties just like you want to have them.

ListStore strstrfloat. Creating the model is quite simple: This means that the new row will only be visible when its parent is visible and in its expanded state. This means that whenever you set a property treeciew change a property of the cell renderer, this will affect all rows that are rendered after the change, until you change the property again.
