Implemented Interfaces

GtkFontSelection implements AtkImplementorIface, GtkBuildable and GtkOrientable.

Includes

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

Description

The GtkFontSelection widget lists the available fonts, styles and sizes, allowing the user to select a font. It is used in the GtkFontSelectionDialog widget to provide a dialog box for selecting fonts.

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

To get the selected font use gtk_font_selection_get_font_name().

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

In GTK+ 3.2, GtkFontSelection has been deprecated in favor of GtkFontChooser.

Functions

gtk_font_selection_new ()

GtkWidget *
gtk_font_selection_new (void);

gtk_font_selection_new has been deprecated since version 3.2 and should not be used in newly-written code.

Use GtkFontChooserWidget instead

Creates a new GtkFontSelection.

Returns

a new GtkFontSelection


gtk_font_selection_get_font_name ()

gchar *
gtk_font_selection_get_font_name (GtkFontSelection *fontsel);

gtk_font_selection_get_font_name has been deprecated since version 3.2 and should not be used in newly-written code.

Use GtkFontChooser

Gets the currently-selected font name.

Note that this can be a different string than what you set with gtk_font_selection_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.

Parameters

fontsel

a GtkFontSelection

 

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_set_font_name ()

gboolean
gtk_font_selection_set_font_name (GtkFontSelection *fontsel,
                                  const gchar *fontname);

gtk_font_selection_set_font_name has been deprecated since version 3.2 and should not be used in newly-written code.

Use GtkFontChooser

Sets the currently-selected font.

Note that the fontsel needs to know the screen in which it will appear for this to work; this can be guaranteed by simply making sure that the fontsel is inserted in a toplevel window before you call this function.

Parameters

fontsel

a font name like “Helvetica 12” or “Times Bold 18”

 

Returns

TRUE if the font could be set successfully; FALSE if no such font exists or if the fontsel doesn’t belong to a particular screen yet.
