Description

GtkStringSorter is a GtkSorter that compares strings. It does the comparison in a linguistically correct way using the current locale by normalizing Unicode strings and possibly case-folding them before performing the comparison.

To obtain the strings to compare, this sorter evaluates a GtkExpression.

Functions

gtk_string_sorter_new ()

GtkSorter *
gtk_string_sorter_new (GtkExpression *expression);

Creates a new string sorter that compares items using the given expression .

Unless an expression is set on it, this sorter will always compare items as invalid.

Parameters

expression

The expression to evaluate.

Returns

a new GtkSorter


gtk_string_sorter_get_expression ()

GtkExpression *
gtk_string_sorter_get_expression (GtkStringSorter *self);

Gets the expression that is evaluated to obtain strings from items.

Parameters

self

a GtkStringSorter

 

Returns

a GtkExpression, or NULL.

gtk_string_sorter_set_expression ()

void
gtk_string_sorter_set_expression (GtkStringSorter *self,
                                  GtkExpression *expression);
