Libglade facilitates loading of XML specifications of whole widget trees
that have been interactively designed with the GUI builder Glade. The
present module exports operations for manipulating GladeXML objects.
glade_xml_signal_autoconnect() is not supported. The C variant is not
suitable for Haskell as -rdynamic leads to huge executable and we
usually don't want to connect staticly named functions, but closures.
- glade_xml_construct() is not bound, as it doesn't seem to be useful
in Haskell. As usual, the signal_connect_data variant for
registering signal handlers isn't bound either. Moreover, the
connect_full functions are not bound.
- This binding does not support Libglade functionality that is
exclusively meant for extending Libglade with new widgets. Like new
widgets, such functionality is currently expected to be implemented in
|class GObjectClass o => GladeXMLClass o |
|data GladeXML |
|xmlNew :: FilePath -> IO (Maybe GladeXML)|
|Create a new XML object (and the corresponding
widgets) from the given XML file; corresponds to
xmlNewWithRootAndDomain, but without the ability to specify a root
widget or translation domain.
|xmlNewWithRootAndDomain :: FilePath -> Maybe String -> Maybe String -> IO (Maybe GladeXML)|
Create a new GladeXML object (and
the corresponding widgets) from the given XML file with an optional
root widget and translation domain.
- If the second argument is not Nothing, the interface will only be built
from the widget whose name is given. This feature is useful if you only
want to build say a toolbar or menu from the XML file, but not the window
it is embedded in. Note also that the XML parse tree is cached to speed
up creating another 'XML' object for the same file.
|Obtaining widget handles
|xmlGetWidget :: WidgetClass widget => GladeXML -> (GObject -> widget) -> String -> IO widget|
Get the widget that has the given name in
the interface description. If the named widget cannot be found
or is of the wrong type the result is an error.
- the second parameter is the ID of the widget in the glade xml
file, eg "button1".
- the third parameter should be a dynamic cast function that
returns the type of object that you expect, eg castToButton
