Class

GtkCssProvider

Description [src]

class Gtk.CssProvider : GObject.Object {
  parent_instance: GObject,
  priv: GtkCssProviderPrivate*
}

GtkCssProvider is an object implementing the GtkStyleProvider interface. It is able to parse [CSS-like][css-overview] input in order to style widgets.

An application can make GTK+ parse a specific CSS style sheet by calling gtk_css_provider_load_from_file() or gtk_css_provider_load_from_resource() and adding the provider with gtk_style_context_add_provider() or gtk_style_context_add_provider_for_screen().

In addition, certain files will be read when GTK+ is initialized. First, the file $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/gtk-3.0/gtk.css is loaded if it exists. Then, GTK+ loads the first existing file among XDG_DATA_HOME/themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk.css, $HOME/.themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk.css, $XDG_DATA_DIRS/themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk.css and DATADIR/share/themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk.css, where THEME is the name of the current theme (see the GtkSettings:gtk-theme-name setting), DATADIR is the prefix configured when GTK+ was compiled (unless overridden by the GTK_DATA_PREFIX environment variable), and VERSION is the GTK+ version number. If no file is found for the current version, GTK+ tries older versions all the way back to 3.0.

In the same way, GTK+ tries to load a gtk-keys.css file for the current key theme, as defined by GtkSettings:gtk-key-theme-name.
