Declaration [src]

gtk_cell_editable_start_editing (
  GtkCellEditable* cell_editable,
  GdkEvent* event

Description [src]

Begins editing on a cell_editable.

The GtkCellRenderer for the cell creates and returns a GtkCellEditable from gtk_cell_renderer_start_editing(), configured for the GtkCellRenderer type.

gtk_cell_editable_start_editing() can then set up cell_editable suitably for editing a cell, e.g. making the Esc key emit GtkCellEditable::editing-done.

Note that the cell_editable is created on-demand for the current edit; its lifetime is temporary and does not persist across other edits and/or cells.



Type: GdkEvent

The GdkEvent that began the editing process, or NULL if editing was initiated programmatically.

The argument can be NULL.
The data is owned by the caller of the method.
