Constructor

GtkWidgetnew

Declaration [src]

GtkWidget*
gtk_widget_new (
  GType type,
  const gchar* first_property_name,
  ...
)

Description [src]

This is a convenience function for creating a widget and setting its properties in one go. For example you might write: gtk_widget_new (GTK_TYPE_LABEL, "label", "Hello World", "xalign", 0.0, NULL) to create a left-aligned label. Equivalent to g_object_new(), but returns a widget so you don’t have to cast the object yourself.

This constructor is not directly available to language bindings
