|A widget which indicates progress visually|
The ProgressBar is typically used to display the progress of a long running operation. It provides a visual clue that processing is underway. The ProgressBar can be used in two different modes: percentage mode and activity mode.
When an application can determine how much work needs to take place (e.g. read a fixed number of bytes from a file) and can monitor its progress, it can use the ProgressBar in percentage mode and the user sees a growing bar indicating the percentage of the work that has been completed. In this mode, the application is required to call progressBarSetFraction periodically to update the progress bar.
When an application has no accurate way of knowing the amount of work to do, it can use the ProgressBar in activity mode, which shows activity by a block moving back and forth within the progress area. In this mode, the application is required to call progressBarPulse perodically to update the progress bar.
There is quite a bit of flexibility provided to control the appearance of the ProgressBar. Functions are provided to control the orientation of the bar, optional text can be displayed along with the bar, and the step size used in activity mode can be set.
|class WidgetClass o => ProgressBarClass o|
|castToProgressBar :: GObjectClass obj => obj -> ProgressBar|
|progressBarNew :: IO ProgressBar|
|Creates a new ProgressBar.|
|progressBarPulse :: ProgressBarClass self => self -> IO ()|
|Indicates that some progress is made, but you don't know how much. Causes the progress bar to enter "activity mode", where a block bounces back and forth. Each call to progressBarPulse causes the block to move by a little bit (the amount of movement per pulse is determined by progressBarSetPulseStep).|
|progressBarSetText :: ProgressBarClass self => self -> String -> IO ()|
|Causes the given text to appear superimposed on the progress bar.|
|progressBarSetOrientation :: ProgressBarClass self => self -> ProgressBarOrientation -> IO ()|
|Causes the progress bar to switch to a different orientation (left-to-right, right-to-left, top-to-bottom, or bottom-to-top).|
|progressBarGetOrientation :: ProgressBarClass self => self -> IO ProgressBarOrientation|
|Retrieves the current progress bar orientation.|
|progressBarSetEllipsize :: ProgressBarClass self => self -> EllipsizeMode -> IO ()|
Sets the mode used to ellipsize (add an ellipsis: "...") the text if there is not enough space to render the entire string.
|progressBarGetEllipsize :: ProgressBarClass self => self -> IO EllipsizeMode|
Gets the value set by progressBarSetEllipsize.
|progressBarOrientation :: ProgressBarClass self => Attr self ProgressBarOrientation|
Orientation and growth direction of the progress bar.
Default value: ProgressLeftToRight
|progressBarDiscreteBlocks :: ProgressBarClass self => Attr self Int|
The number of discrete blocks in a progress bar (when shown in the discrete style).
Allowed values: >= 2
Default value: 10
|progressBarFraction :: ProgressBarClass self => Attr self Double|
The fraction of total work that has been completed.
Allowed values: [0,1]
Default value: 0
|progressBarPulseStep :: ProgressBarClass self => Attr self Double|
The fraction of total progress to move the bouncing block when pulsed.
Allowed values: [0,1]
Default value: 0.1
|progressBarText :: ProgressBarClass self => ReadWriteAttr self (Maybe String) String|
Text to be displayed in the progress bar.
Default value: "%P %%"
|progressBarEllipsize :: ProgressBarClass self => Attr self EllipsizeMode|
The preferred place to ellipsize the string, if the progressbar does not have enough room to display the entire string, specified as a EllipsizeMode.
Note that setting this property to a value other than EllipsizeNone has the side-effect that the progressbar requests only enough space to display the ellipsis "...". Another means to set a progressbar's width is widgetSetSizeRequest.
Default value: EllipsizeNone
