Implemented Interfaces

HdyHeaderBar implements AtkImplementorIface and GtkBuildable.

Description

HdyHeaderBar is similar to GtkHeaderBar but is designed to fix some of its shortcomings for adaptive applications.

HdyHeaderBar doesn't force the custom title widget to be vertically centered, hence allowing it to fill up the whole height, which is e.g. needed for HdyViewSwitcher.

Functions

hdy_header_bar_new ()

GtkWidget *
hdy_header_bar_new (void);

Creates a new HdyHeaderBar widget.

Returns

a new HdyHeaderBar

Since: 0.0.10


hdy_header_bar_get_title ()

const gchar *
hdy_header_bar_get_title (HdyHeaderBar *self);

Retrieves the title of the header. See hdy_header_bar_set_title().

Parameters

self

a HdyHeaderBar

 

Returns

the title of the header, or NULL if none has been set explicitly. The returned string is owned by the widget and must not be modified or freed.

[nullable]

Since: 0.0.10


hdy_header_bar_set_title ()

void
hdy_header_bar_set_title (HdyHeaderBar *self,
                          const gchar *title);

Sets the title of the HdyHeaderBar. The title should help a user identify the current view. A good title should not include the application name.

Parameters

self

a HdyHeaderBar

 

title

a title, or NULL.

[allow-none]

Since: 0.0.10


hdy_header_bar_get_subtitle ()

const gchar *
hdy_header_bar_get_subtitle (HdyHeaderBar *self);

Retrieves the subtitle of the header. See hdy_header_bar_set_subtitle().

Parameters

self

a HdyHeaderBar

 

Returns

the subtitle of the header, or NULL if none has been set explicitly. The returned string is owned by the widget and must not be modified or freed.

[nullable]

Since: 0.0.10


hdy_header_bar_set_subtitle ()

void
hdy_header_bar_set_subtitle (HdyHeaderBar *self,
                             const gchar *subtitle);

Sets the subtitle of the HdyHeaderBar. The title should give a user an additional detail to help him identify the current view.

Note that HdyHeaderBar by default reserves room for the subtitle, even if none is currently set. If this is not desired, set the “has-subtitle” property to FALSE.

Parameters

self

a HdyHeaderBar

 

subtitle

a subtitle, or NULL.

[allow-none]

Since: 0.0.10


hdy_header_bar_get_custom_title ()

GtkWidget *
hdy_header_bar_get_custom_title (HdyHeaderBar *self);

Retrieves the custom title widget of the header. See hdy_header_bar_set_custom_title().

Parameters

self

a HdyHeaderBar

 

Returns

the custom title widget of the header, or NULL if none has been set explicitly.

[nullable][transfer none]

Since: 0.0.10


hdy_header_bar_set_custom_title ()

void
hdy_header_bar_set_custom_title (HdyHeaderBar *self,
                                 GtkWidget *title_widget);

Sets a custom title for the HdyHeaderBar.

The title should help a user identify the current view. This supersedes any title set by hdy_header_bar_set_title() or hdy_header_bar_set_subtitle(). To achieve the same style as the builtin title and subtitle, use the “title” and “subtitle” style classes.

You should set the custom title to NULL, for the header title label to be visible again.

Parameters

self

a HdyHeaderBar

 

title_widget

a custom widget to use for a title.

[allow-none]

Since: 0.0.10

Parameters

self

a HdyHeaderBar

 

Returns

TRUE if the header bar reserves space for a subtitle

Since: 0.0.10


hdy_header_bar_set_has_subtitle ()

void
hdy_header_bar_set_has_subtitle (HdyHeaderBar *self,
                                 gboolean setting);

Sets whether the header bar should reserve space for a subtitle, even if none is currently set.

Parameters

self

hdy_header_bar_get_decoration_layout ()

const gchar *
hdy_header_bar_get_decoration_layout (HdyHeaderBar *self);

Gets the decoration layout set with hdy_header_bar_set_decoration_layout().

Parameters

self

a HdyHeaderBar

 

Returns

the decoration layout

Since: 0.0.10


hdy_header_bar_set_decoration_layout ()

void
hdy_header_bar_set_decoration_layout (HdyHeaderBar *self,
                                      const gchar *layout);

Sets the decoration layout for this header bar, overriding the “gtk-decoration-layout” setting.

There can be valid reasons for overriding the setting, such as a header bar design that does not allow for buttons to take room on the right, or only offers room for a single close button. Split header bars are another example for overriding the setting.

The format of the string is button names, separated by commas. A colon separates the buttons that should appear on the left from those on the right. Recognized button names are minimize, maximize, close, icon (the window icon) and menu (a menu button for the fallback app menu).

For example, “menu:minimize,maximize,close” specifies a menu on the left, and minimize, maximize and close buttons on the right.

Parameters

self

a HdyHeaderBar

 

layout

a decoration layout, or NULL to unset the layout.

[allow-none]

Since: 0.0.10
