    ╰── GtkSettings

Implemented Interfaces

GtkSettings implements GtkStyleProvider and GtkStyleProviderPrivate.

Includes

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

Description

GtkSettings provide a mechanism to share global settings between applications.

On the X window system, this sharing is realized by an XSettings manager that is usually part of the desktop environment, along with utilities that let the user change these settings. In the absence of an Xsettings manager, GTK+ reads default values for settings from settings.ini files in /etc/gtk-3.0, $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/gtk-3.0 and $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/gtk-3.0. These files must be valid key files (see GKeyFile), and have a section called Settings. Themes can also provide default values for settings by installing a settings.ini file next to their gtk.css file.

Applications can override system-wide settings by setting the property of the GtkSettings object with g_object_set(). This should be restricted to special cases though; GtkSettings are not meant as an application configuration facility. When doing so, you need to be aware that settings that are specific to individual widgets may not be available before the widget type has been realized at least once. The following example demonstrates a way to do this:

1
2
3
4
5
6
gtk_init (&argc, &argv);

// make sure the type is realized
g_type_class_unref (g_type_class_ref (GTK_TYPE_IMAGE_MENU_ITEM));

g_object_set (gtk_settings_get_default (), "gtk-enable-animations", FALSE, NULL);

There is one GtkSettings instance per screen. It can be obtained with gtk_settings_get_for_screen(), but in many cases, it is more convenient to use gtk_widget_get_settings(). gtk_settings_get_default() returns the GtkSettings instance for the default screen.

Functions

gtk_settings_get_default ()

GtkSettings *
gtk_settings_get_default (void);

Gets the GtkSettings object for the default GDK screen, creating it if necessary. See gtk_settings_get_for_screen().

Returns

a GtkSettings object. If there is no default screen, then returns NULL.

[nullable][transfer none]


gtk_settings_get_for_screen ()

GtkSettings *
gtk_settings_get_for_screen (GdkScreen *screen);

Gets the GtkSettings object for screen , creating it if necessary.

Parameters

screen

a GdkScreen.

 

Returns

a GtkSettings object.

Property Details

The “color-hash” property

  “color-hash”               GHashTable *

A hash table representation of the color scheme.

Flags: Read


The “gtk-alternative-button-order” property

  “gtk-alternative-button-order” gboolean

Whether buttons in dialogs should use the alternative button order.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: FALSE


The “gtk-alternative-sort-arrows” property

  “gtk-alternative-sort-arrows” gboolean

Controls the direction of the sort indicators in sorted list and tree views. By default an arrow pointing down means the column is sorted in ascending order. When set to TRUE, this order will be inverted.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: FALSE

Since: 2.12


The “gtk-application-prefer-dark-theme” property

  “gtk-application-prefer-dark-theme” gboolean

Whether the application prefers to use a dark theme. If a GTK+ theme includes a dark variant, it will be used instead of the configured theme.

Some applications benefit from minimizing the amount of light pollution that interferes with the content. Good candidates for dark themes are photo and video editors that make the actual content get all the attention and minimize the distraction of the chrome.

Dark themes should not be used for documents, where large spaces are white/light and the dark chrome creates too much contrast (web browser, text editor...).

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: FALSE

Since: 3.0


The “gtk-auto-mnemonics” property

  “gtk-auto-mnemonics”       gboolean

Whether mnemonics should be automatically shown and hidden when the user presses the mnemonic activator.

GtkSettings:gtk-auto-mnemonics has been deprecated since version 3.10 and should not be used in newly-written code.

This setting is ignored

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: TRUE

Since: 2.20


The “gtk-button-images” property

  “gtk-button-images”        gboolean

Whether images should be shown on buttons

GtkSettings:gtk-button-images has been deprecated since version 3.10 and should not be used in newly-written code.

This setting is deprecated. Application developers control whether a button should show an icon or not, on a per-button basis. If a GtkButton should show an icon, use the “always-show-image” property of GtkButton, and pack a GtkImage inside the GtkButton

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: FALSE

Since: 2.4


The “gtk-can-change-accels” property

  “gtk-can-change-accels”    gboolean

Whether menu accelerators can be changed by pressing a key over the menu item.

GtkSettings:gtk-can-change-accels has been deprecated since version 3.10 and should not be used in newly-written code.

This setting is ignored.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: FALSE


The “gtk-color-palette” property

  “gtk-color-palette”        gchar *

Palette to use in the deprecated color selector.

GtkSettings:gtk-color-palette has been deprecated since version 3.10 and should not be used in newly-written code.

Only used by the deprecated color selector widget.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: "black:white:gray50:red:purple:blue:light blue:green:yellow:orange:lavender:brown:goldenrod4:dodger blue:pink:light green:gray10:gray30:gray75:gray90"


The “gtk-color-scheme” property

  “gtk-color-scheme”         gchar *

A palette of named colors for use in themes. The format of the string is

1
2
3
name1: color1
name2: color2
...

Color names must be acceptable as identifiers in the gtkrc syntax, and color specifications must be in the format accepted by gdk_color_parse().

Note that due to the way the color tables from different sources are merged, color specifications will be converted to hexadecimal form when getting this property.

Starting with GTK+ 2.12, the entries can alternatively be separated by ';' instead of newlines:

1
name1: color1; name2: color2; ...

GtkSettings:gtk-color-scheme has been deprecated since version 3.8 and should not be used in newly-written code.

Color scheme support was dropped and is no longer supported. You can still set this property, but it will be ignored.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: ""

Since: 2.10


The “gtk-cursor-blink” property

  “gtk-cursor-blink”         gboolean

Whether the cursor should blink.

Also see the “gtk-cursor-blink-timeout” setting, which allows more flexible control over cursor blinking.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: TRUE


The “gtk-cursor-blink-time” property

  “gtk-cursor-blink-time”    gint

Length of the cursor blink cycle, in milliseconds.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: 1200


The “gtk-cursor-blink-timeout” property

  “gtk-cursor-blink-timeout” gint

Time after which the cursor stops blinking, in seconds. The timer is reset after each user interaction.

Setting this to zero has the same effect as setting “gtk-cursor-blink” to FALSE.

Flags: Read / Write

Allowed values: >= 1

Default value: 10

Since: 2.12


The “gtk-cursor-theme-name” property

  “gtk-cursor-theme-name”    gchar *

Name of the cursor theme to use, or NULL to use the default theme.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: NULL


The “gtk-cursor-theme-size” property

  “gtk-cursor-theme-size”    gint

Size to use for cursors, or 0 to use the default size.

Flags: Read / Write

Allowed values: [0,128]

Default value: 0


The “gtk-decoration-layout” property

  “gtk-decoration-layout”    gchar *

This setting determines which buttons should be put in the titlebar of client-side decorated windows, and whether they should be placed at the left of right.

The format of the string is button names, separated by commas. A colon separates the buttons that should appear on the left from those on the right. Recognized button names are minimize, maximize, close, icon (the window icon) and menu (a menu button for the fallback app menu).

For example, "menu:minimize,maximize,close" specifies a menu on the left, and minimize, maximize and close buttons on the right.

Note that buttons will only be shown when they are meaningful. E.g. a menu button only appears when the desktop shell does not show the app menu, and a close button only appears on a window that can be closed.

Also note that the setting can be overridden with the “decoration-layout” property.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: "menu:minimize,maximize,close"

Since: 3.12


The “gtk-dialogs-use-header” property

  “gtk-dialogs-use-header”   gboolean

This setting does not affect custom dialogs using GtkDialog directly, or message dialogs.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: FALSE

Since: 3.12


The “gtk-dnd-drag-threshold” property

  “gtk-dnd-drag-threshold”   gint

Number of pixels the cursor can move before dragging.

Flags: Read / Write
