Description

Functions

gdaui_init ()

void
gdaui_init (void);

Initialization of the libgda-ui library, must be called before any usage of the library.

  • Note 1: gtk_init() is not called by this function and should also be called (see Note 2 about the importance of the calling order)

  • Note 2: unless you call setlocale() first in your program, calling gtk_init() before gdaui_init() will ensure that all information loaded from config files will be loaded in the correct locale (as gtk_init() calls setlocale()).

  • Note 3: this funtion also calls gda_init() so it should not be called again
