<object class="GtkMenuToolButton">
  <child type="menu">
    <object class="GtkMenu"/>
  </child>

Signal Details

The “show-menu” signal

void
user_function (GtkMenuToolButton *button,
               gpointer           user_data)

The ::show-menu signal is emitted before the menu is shown.

It can be used to populate the menu on demand, using gtk_menu_tool_button_set_menu().

Note that even if you populate the menu dynamically in this way, you must set an empty menu on the GtkMenuToolButton beforehand, since the arrow is made insensitive if the menu is not set.

Parameters

button

the object on which the signal is emitted

 

user_data

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

 

Flags: Run First
