Description

GtkScaleButton provides a button which pops up a scale widget. This kind of widget is commonly used for volume controls in multimedia applications, and GTK+ provides a GtkVolumeButton subclass that is tailored for this use case.

CSS nodes

GtkScaleButton has a single CSS node with name button. To differentiate it from a plain GtkButton, it gets the .scale style class.

Functions

gtk_scale_button_new ()

GtkWidget *
gtk_scale_button_new (GtkIconSize size,
                      gdouble min,
                      gdouble max,
                      gdouble step,
                      const gchar **icons);

Property Details

The “adjustment” property

  “adjustment”               GtkAdjustment *

The GtkAdjustment that contains the current value of this scale button object.

Flags: Read / Write


The “icons” property

  “icons”                    GStrv

The names of the icons to be used by the scale button. The first item in the array will be used in the button when the current value is the lowest value, the second item for the highest value. All the subsequent icons will be used for all the other values, spread evenly over the range of values.

If there's only one icon name in the icons array, it will be used for all the values. If only two icon names are in the icons array, the first one will be used for the bottom 50% of the scale, and the second one for the top 50%.

It is recommended to use at least 3 icons so that the GtkScaleButton reflects the current value of the scale better for the users.
