class Gtk::ListBox

Overview

Gtk::ListBox is a vertical list.

A Gtk::ListBox only contains Gtk::ListBoxRow children. These rows can by dynamically sorted and filtered, and headers can be added dynamically depending on the row content. It also allows keyboard and mouse navigation and selection like a typical list.

Using Gtk::ListBox is often an alternative to Gtk::TreeView, especially when the list contents has a more complicated layout than what is allowed by a Gtk::CellRenderer, or when the contents is interactive (i.e. has a button in it).

Although a Gtk::ListBox must have only Gtk::ListBoxRow children, you can add any kind of widget to it via Gtk::ListBox#prepend, Gtk::ListBox#append and Gtk::ListBox#insert and a Gtk::ListBoxRow widget will automatically be inserted between the list and the widget.

Gtk::ListBoxRows can be marked as activatable or selectable. If a row is activatable, [signal@Gtk.ListBox::row-activated] will be emitted for it when the user tries to activate it. If it is selectable, the row will be marked as selected when the user tries to select it.

Gtk::ListBox as Gtk::Buildable

The Gtk::ListBox implementation of the Gtk::Buildable interface supports setting a child as the placeholder by specifying “placeholder” as the “type” attribute of a element. See Gtk::ListBox#placeholder= for info.

CSS nodes

|[ list[.separators][.rich-list][.navigation-sidebar] ╰── row[.activatable] ]|

Gtk::ListBox uses a single CSS node named list. It may carry the .separators style class, when the [property@Gtk.ListBox:show-separators] property is set. Each Gtk::ListBoxRow uses a single CSS node named row. The row nodes get the .activatable style class added when appropriate.

The main list node may also carry style classes to select the style of list presentation: .rich-list, .navigation-sidebar or .data-table.

Accessibility

Gtk::ListBox uses the %GTK_ACCESSIBLE_ROLE_LIST role and Gtk::ListBoxRow uses the %GTK_ACCESSIBLE_ROLE_LIST_ITEM role.

def activate_cursor_row_signal #

[View source]
def activate_on_single_click : Bool #

Returns whether rows activate on single clicks.


[View source]
def activate_on_single_click=(single : Bool) : Nil #

If single is true, rows will be activated when you click on them, otherwise you need to double-click.


[View source]
def activate_on_single_click? : Bool #

[View source]
def adjustment : Gtk::Adjustment | Nil #

Gets the adjustment (if any) that the widget uses to for vertical scrolling.


[View source]
def adjustment=(adjustment : Gtk::Adjustment | Nil) : Nil #

Sets the adjustment (if any) that the widget uses to for vertical scrolling.

For instance, this is used to get the page size for PageUp/Down key handling.

In the normal case when the box is packed inside a Gtk::ScrolledWindow the adjustment from that will be picked up automatically, so there is no need to manually do that.


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

Append a widget to the list.

If a sort function is set, the widget will actually be inserted at the calculated position.


[View source]
def bind_model(model : Gio::ListModel | Nil, create_widget_func : Gtk::ListBoxCreateWidgetFunc | Nil) : Nil #

Binds model to box.

If box was already bound to a model, that previous binding is destroyed.

The contents of box are cleared and then filled with widgets that represent items from model. box is updated whenever model changes. If model is nil, box is left empty.

It is undefined to add or remove widgets directly (for example, with Gtk::ListBox#insert) while box is bound to a model.

Note that using a model is incompatible with the filtering and sorting functionality in Gtk::ListBox. When using a model, filtering and sorting should be implemented by the model.


[View source]
def drag_highlight_row(row : Gtk::ListBoxRow) : Nil #

Add a drag highlight to a row.

This is a helper function for implementing DnD onto a Gtk::ListBox. The passed in row will be highlighted by setting the %GTK_STATE_FLAG_DROP_ACTIVE state and any previously highlighted row will be unhighlighted.

The row will also be unhighlighted when the widget gets a drag leave event.


[View source]
def drag_unhighlight_row : Nil #

If a row has previously been highlighted via gtk_list_box_drag_highlight_row(), it will have the highlight removed.


[View source]
def filter_func=(filter_func : Gtk::ListBoxFilterFunc | Nil) : Nil #

By setting a filter function on the box one can decide dynamically which of the rows to show.

For instance, to implement a search function on a list that filters the original list to only show the matching rows.

The filter_func will be called for each row after the call, and it will continue to be called each time a row changes (via Gtk::ListBoxRow#changed) or when Gtk::ListBox#invalidate_filter is called.

Note that using a filter function is incompatible with using a model (see Gtk::ListBox#bind_model).


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

See Object#hash(hasher)


def header_func=(update_header : Gtk::ListBoxUpdateHeaderFunc | Nil) : Nil #

Sets a header function.

By setting a header function on the box one can dynamically add headers in front of rows, depending on the contents of the row and its position in the list.

For instance, one could use it to add headers in front of the first item of a new kind, in a list sorted by the kind.

The update_header can look at the current header widget using Gtk::ListBoxRow#header and either update the state of the widget as needed, or set a new one using Gtk::ListBoxRow#header=. If no header is needed, set the header to nil.

Note that you may get many calls update_header to this for a particular row when e.g. changing things that don’t affect the header. In this case it is important for performance to not blindly replace an existing header with an identical one.

The update_header function will be called for each row after the call, and it will continue to be called each time a row changes (via Gtk::ListBoxRow#changed) and when the row before changes (either by Gtk::ListBoxRow#changed on the previous row, or when the previous row becomes a different row). It is also called for all rows when Gtk::ListBox#invalidate_headers is called.


[View source]
def insert(child : Gtk::Widget, position : Int32) : Nil #

Insert the child into the box at position.

If a sort function is set, the widget will actually be inserted at the calculated position.

If position is -1, or larger than the total number of items in the box, then the child will be appended to the end.


[View source]
def invalidate_filter : Nil #

Update the filtering for all rows.

Call this when result of the filter function on the box is changed due to an external factor. For instance, this would be used if the filter function just looked for a specific search string and the entry with the search string has changed.


[View source]
def invalidate_headers : Nil #

Update the separators for all rows.

Call this when result of the header function on the box is changed due to an external factor.


[View source]
def invalidate_sort : Nil #

Update the sorting for all rows.

Call this when result of the sort function on the box is changed due to an external factor.


[View source]
def move_cursor_signal #

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

Sets the placeholder widget that is shown in the list when it doesn't display any visible children.


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

Prepend a widget to the list.

If a sort function is set, the widget will actually be inserted at the calculated position.


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

Removes a child from box.


[View source]
def row_activated_signal #

[View source]
def row_at_index(index_ : Int32) : Gtk::ListBoxRow | Nil #

Gets the n-th child in the list (not counting headers).

If index_ is negative or larger than the number of items in the list, nil is returned.


[View source]
def row_at_y(y : Int32) : Gtk::ListBoxRow | Nil #

Gets the row at the y position.


[View source]
def row_selected_signal #

[View source]
def select_all : Nil #

Select all children of box, if the selection mode allows it.


[View source]
def select_all_signal #

[View source]
def select_row(row : Gtk::ListBoxRow | Nil) : Nil #

Make row the currently selected row.


[View source]
def selected_foreach(func : Gtk::ListBoxForeachFunc, data : Pointer(Void) | Nil) : Nil #

Calls a function for each selected child.

Note that the selection cannot be modified from within this function.


[View source]
def selected_row : Gtk::ListBoxRow | Nil #

Gets the selected row, or nil if no rows are selected.

Note that the box may allow multiple selection, in which case you should use Gtk::ListBox#selected_foreach to find all selected rows.


[View source]
def selected_rows : GLib::List #

Creates a list of all selected children.


[View source]
def selected_rows_changed_signal #

[View source]
def selection_mode : Gtk::SelectionMode #

Gets the selection mode of the listbox.


[View source]
def selection_mode=(mode : Gtk::SelectionMode) : Nil #

Sets how selection works in the listbox.


[View source]
def show_separators : Bool #

Returns whether the list box should show separators between rows.


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

Sets whether the list box should show separators between rows.


[View source]
def show_separators? : Bool #

[View source]
def sort_func=(sort_func : Gtk::ListBoxSortFunc | Nil) : Nil #

Sets a sort function.

By setting a sort function on the box one can dynamically reorder the rows of the list, based on the contents of the rows.

The sort_func will be called for each row after the call, and will continue to be called each time a row changes (via Gtk::ListBoxRow#changed) and when Gtk::ListBox#invalidate_sort is called.

Note that using a sort function is incompatible with using a model (see Gtk::ListBox#bind_model).


[View source]
def toggle_cursor_row_signal #

[View source]
def unselect_all : Nil #

Unselect all children of box, if the selection mode allows it.


[View source]
def unselect_all_signal #

[View source]
def unselect_row(row : Gtk::ListBoxRow) : Nil #

Unselects a single row of box, if the selection mode allows it.
