class Gtk::ComboBox

Overview

A Gtk::ComboBox is a widget that allows the user to choose from a list of valid choices.

An example Gtk::ComboBox

The Gtk::ComboBox displays the selected choice; when activated, the Gtk::ComboBox displays a popup which allows the user to make a new choice.

The Gtk::ComboBox uses the model-view pattern; the list of valid choices is specified in the form of a tree model, and the display of the choices can be adapted to the data in the model by using cell renderers, as you would in a tree view. This is possible since Gtk::ComboBox implements the Gtk::CellLayout interface. The tree model holding the valid choices is not restricted to a flat list, it can be a real tree, and the popup will reflect the tree structure.

To allow the user to enter values not in the model, the [property@Gtk.ComboBox:has-entry] property allows the Gtk::ComboBox to contain a Gtk::Entry. This entry can be accessed by calling Gtk::ComboBox#child on the combo box.

For a simple list of textual choices, the model-view API of Gtk::ComboBox can be a bit overwhelming. In this case, Gtk::ComboBoxText offers a simple alternative. Both Gtk::ComboBox and Gtk::ComboBoxText can contain an entry.

CSS nodes

combobox
├── box.linked
│ ╰── button.combo
│ ╰── box
│ ├── cellview
│ ╰── arrow
╰── window.popup

A normal combobox contains a box with the .linked class, a button with the .combo class and inside those buttons, there are a cellview and an arrow.

combobox
├── box.linked
│ ├── entry.combo
│ ╰── button.combo
│ ╰── box
│ ╰── arrow
╰── window.popup

A Gtk::ComboBox with an entry has a single CSS node with name combobox. It contains a box with the .linked class. That box contains an entry and a button, both with the .combo class added. The button also contains another node with name arrow.

Accessibility

Gtk::ComboBox uses the %GTK_ACCESSIBLE_ROLE_COMBO_BOX role.

def self.new_with_entry : self #

Creates a new empty Gtk::ComboBox with an entry.

In order to use a combo box with entry, you need to tell it which column of the model contains the text for the entry by calling Gtk::ComboBox#entry_text_column=.

def self.new_with_model(model : Gtk::TreeModel) : self #

[View source]
def self.new_with_model_and_entry(model : Gtk::TreeModel) : self #

Creates a new empty Gtk::ComboBox with an entry and a model.

def self.g_type : UInt64 #

Returns the type id (GType) registered in GLib type system.

Instance Method Detail

def ==(other : self) #
Description copied from class Reference

Returns true if this reference is the same as other. Invokes same?.


def activate_signal #

[View source]
def active : Int32 #

Returns the index of the currently active item.

If the model is a non-flat treemodel, and the active item is not an immediate child of the root of the tree, this function returns gtk_tree_path_get_indices (path)[0], where path is the Gtk::TreePath of the active item.


[View source]
def active=(index_ : Int32) : Nil #

Sets the active item of combo_box to be the item at index.


[View source]
def active_id : String | Nil #

Returns the ID of the active row of combo_box.

This value is taken from the active row and the column specified by the [property@Gtk.ComboBox:id-column] property of combo_box (see Gtk::ComboBox#id_column=).

The returned value is an interned string which means that you can compare the pointer by value to other interned strings and that you must not free it.

If the [property@Gtk.ComboBox:id-column] property of combo_box is not set, or if no row is active, or if the active row has a nil ID value, then nil is returned.


[View source]
def active_id=(value : String) : String #

[View source]
def active_id=(active_id : String | Nil) : Bool #

Changes the active row of combo_box to the one that has an ID equal to active_id.

If active_id is nil, the active row is unset. Rows having a nil ID string cannot be made active by this function.

If the [property@Gtk.ComboBox:id-column] property of combo_box is unset or if no row has the given ID then the function does nothing and returns false.


[View source]
def active_iter : Gtk::TreeIter #

Sets iter to point to the currently active item.

If no item is active, iter is left unchanged.


[View source]
def active_iter=(iter : Gtk::TreeIter | Nil) : Nil #

Sets the current active item to be the one referenced by iter.

If iter is nil, the active item is unset.


[View source]
def button_sensitivity : Gtk::SensitivityType #

Returns whether the combo box sets the dropdown button sensitive or not when there are no items in the model.


[View source]
def button_sensitivity=(sensitivity : Gtk::SensitivityType) : Nil #

Sets whether the dropdown button of the combo box should update its sensitivity depending on the model contents.


[View source]
def changed_signal #

[View source]
def child : Gtk::Widget | Nil #

Gets the child widget of combo_box.


[View source]
def child=(child : Gtk::Widget | Nil) : Nil #

Sets the child widget of combo_box.


[View source]
def entry_text_column : Int32 #

Returns the column which combo_box is using to get the strings from to display in the internal entry.


[View source]
def entry_text_column=(text_column : Int32) : Nil #

Sets the model column which combo_box should use to get strings from to be text_column.

For this column no separate Gtk::CellRenderer is needed.

The column text_column in the model of combo_box must be of type %G_TYPE_STRING.

This is only relevant if combo_box has been created with [property@Gtk.ComboBox:has-entry] as true.


[View source]
def format_entry_text_signal #

[View source]
def has_entry : Bool #

Returns whether the combo box has an entry.


[View source]
def has_entry=(value : Bool) : Bool #

[View source]
def has_entry? : Bool #

[View source]
def has_frame=(value : Bool) : Bool #

[View source]
def has_frame? : Bool #

[View source]
def hash(hasher) #
Description copied from class Reference

See Object#hash(hasher)


def id_column : Int32 #

Returns the column which combo_box is using to get string IDs for values from.


[View source]
def id_column=(id_column : Int32) : Nil #

Sets the model column which combo_box should use to get string IDs for values from.

The column id_column in the model of combo_box must be of type %G_TYPE_STRING.


[View source]
def model : Gtk::TreeModel | Nil #

Returns the Gtk::TreeModel of combo_box.


[View source]
def model=(model : Gtk::TreeModel | Nil) : Nil #

Sets the model used by combo_box to be model.

Will unset a previously set model (if applicable). If model is nil, then it will unset the model.

Note that this function does not clear the cell renderers, you have to call Gtk::CellLayout#clear yourself if you need to set up different cell renderers for the new model.


[View source]
def move_active_signal #

[View source]
def popdown : Nil #

Hides the menu or dropdown list of combo_box.

This function is mostly intended for use by accessibility technologies; applications should have little use for it.


[View source]
def popdown_signal #

[View source]
def popup : Nil #

Pops up the menu or dropdown list of combo_box.

This function is mostly intended for use by accessibility technologies; applications should have little use for it.

Before calling this, combo_box must be mapped, or nothing will happen.


[View source]
def popup_fixed_width : Bool #

Gets whether the popup uses a fixed width.


[View source]
def popup_fixed_width=(fixed : Bool) : Nil #

Specifies whether the popup’s width should be a fixed width.

If fixed is true, the popup's width is set to match the allocated width of the combo box.


[View source]
def popup_fixed_width? : Bool #

[View source]
def popup_for_device(device : Gdk::Device) : Nil #

Pops up the menu of combo_box.

Note that currently this does not do anything with the device, as it was previously only used for list-mode combo boxes, and those were removed in GTK 4. However, it is retained in case similar functionality is added back later.


[View source]
def popup_shown? : Bool #

[View source]
def popup_signal #

[View source]
def row_separator_func=(func : Gtk::TreeViewRowSeparatorFunc | Nil) : Nil #

Sets the row separator function, which is used to determine whether a row should be drawn as a separator.

If the row separator function is nil, no separators are drawn. This is the default value.
