Class

GtkEntryBuffer

since: 2.18

Description [src]

class Gtk.EntryBuffer : GObject.Object {
  parent_instance: GObject
}

The GtkEntryBuffer class contains the actual text displayed in a GtkEntry widget.

A single GtkEntryBuffer object can be shared by multiple GtkEntry widgets which will then share the same text content, but not the cursor position, visibility attributes, icon etc.

GtkEntryBuffer may be derived from. Such a derived class might allow text to be stored in an alternate location, such as non-pageable memory, useful in the case of important passwords. Or a derived class could integrate with an application’s concept of undo/redo.

Instance methods

gtk_entry_buffer_delete_text

Deletes a sequence of characters from the buffer. n_chars characters are deleted starting at position. If n_chars is negative, then all characters until the end of the text are deleted.

since: 2.18

gtk_entry_buffer_emit_deleted_text

Used when subclassing GtkEntryBuffer.

since: 2.18

gtk_entry_buffer_emit_inserted_text

Used when subclassing GtkEntryBuffer.

since: 2.18

gtk_entry_buffer_get_bytes

Retrieves the length in bytes of the buffer. See gtk_entry_buffer_get_length().

since: 2.18

gtk_entry_buffer_get_length

Retrieves the length in characters of the buffer.

since: 2.18

gtk_entry_buffer_get_max_length

Retrieves the maximum allowed length of the text in buffer. See gtk_entry_buffer_set_max_length().

since: 2.18

gtk_entry_buffer_get_text

Retrieves the contents of the buffer.

since: 2.18

gtk_entry_buffer_insert_text

Inserts n_chars characters of chars into the contents of the buffer, at position position.

since: 2.18

gtk_entry_buffer_set_max_length

Sets the maximum allowed length of the contents of the buffer. If the current contents are longer than the given length, then they will be truncated to fit.

since: 2.18
