Implemented Interfaces

BonoboSelector implements AtkImplementorIface and GtkBuildable.

Properties

  "interfaces-required"      GValueArray*          : Write / Construct

Signals

  "cancel"                                         : Run Last
  "ok"                                             : Run Last

Description

This GnomeDialog allows the user to select a component implementing a set of interfaces. The easiest way to do this in your code is by using:

Example 10. Simple Bonobo/Control selection

{
    char *interfaces [] = { "IDL:Bonobo/Control:1.0", NULL };
    char *oaf_iid;
    oaf_iid = bonobo_selector_select_id (
        _("Please select a Control"), interfaces);
    g_warning ("You selected '%s'", oaf_iid);
    g_free (oaf_iid);
}



This will throw up a dialog containing all the available components implementing the IDL:Bonobo/Control:1.0 interface and list them for the user to select.

Details

BonoboSelectorPrivate

typedef struct _BonoboSelectorPrivate BonoboSelectorPrivate;


BonoboSelector

typedef struct _BonoboSelector BonoboSelector;


BonoboSelectorClass

typedef struct {
	GtkDialogClass parent_class;
	
	void (* ok) (BonoboSelector *sel);
	void (* cancel) (BonoboSelector *sel);

	gpointer dummy[2];
} BonoboSelectorClass;


bonobo_selector_construct ()

GtkWidget *         bonobo_selector_construct           (BonoboSelector *sel,
                                                         const gchar *title,
                                                         BonoboSelectorWidget *selector);

Don't use this ever - use construct-time properties instead. TODO: Remove from header when we are allowed to change the API. Constructs the innards of a bonobo selector window.

sel :

the selector to construct

title :

the title for the window

selector :

the component view widget to put inside it.

Returns :

the constructed widget.

bonobo_selector_new ()

GtkWidget *         bonobo_selector_new                 (const gchar *title,
                                                         const gchar **interfaces_required);

Creates a new BonoboSelector widget. The title of the dialog is set to title, and the list of selectable servers is populated with those servers which support the interfaces specified in interfaces_required.

title :

A string which should go in the title of the BonoboSelector window.

interfaces_required :

A NULL-terminated array of interfaces which a server must support in order to be listed in the selector. Defaults to "IDL:Bonobo/Embeddable:1.0" if no interfaces are listed.

Returns :

A pointer to the newly-created BonoboSelector widget.

bonobo_selector_get_selected_id ()

gchar *             bonobo_selector_get_selected_id     (BonoboSelector *sel);

sel :

A BonoboSelector widget.

Returns :

A newly-allocated string containing the ID of the currently-selected CORBA server (i.e., the corba server whose name is highlighted in the list). The user of this function is responsible for freeing this. It will give an oaf iid back.

bonobo_selector_get_selected_name ()

gchar *             bonobo_selector_get_selected_name   (BonoboSelector *sel);

sel :

A BonoboSelector widget.

Returns :

A newly-allocated string containing the name of the currently-selected CORBA server (i.e., the corba server whose name is highlighted in the list). The user of this function is responsible for freeing this.

bonobo_selector_get_selected_description ()

gchar *             bonobo_selector_get_selected_description
                                                        (BonoboSelector *sel);

sel :

A BonoboSelector widget.

Returns :

A newly-allocated string containing the description of the currently-selected CORBA server (i.e., the corba server whose name is highlighted in the list). The user of this function is responsible for freeing this.

bonobo_selector_select_id ()

gchar *             bonobo_selector_select_id           (const gchar *title,
                                                         const gchar **interfaces_required);

Calls bonobo_selector_new() to create a new BonoboSelector widget with the specified paramters, title and interfaces_required. Then runs the dialog modally and allows the user to make a selection.

title :

The title to be used for the dialog.

interfaces_required :

A list of required interfaces. See bonobo_selector_new().

Returns :

The Oaf IID of the selected server, or NULL if no server is selected. The ID string has been allocated with g_strdup.

Property Details

The "interfaces-required" property

  "interfaces-required"      GValueArray*          : Write / Construct

A NULL-terminated array of interfaces which a server must support in order to be listed in the selector. Defaults to "IDL:Bonobo/Embeddable:1.0" if no interfaces are listed.
