Declaration [src]

gtk_container_remove (
  GtkContainer* container,
  GtkWidget* widget

Description [src]

Removes widget from container. widget must be inside container. Note that container will own a reference to widget, and that this may be the last reference held; so removing a widget from its container can destroy that widget. If you want to use widget again, you need to add a reference to it before removing it from a container, using g_object_ref(). If you don’t want to use widget again it’s usually more efficient to simply destroy it directly using gtk_widget_destroy() since this will remove it from the container and help break any circular reference count cycles.



Type: GtkWidget

A current child of container.

The data is owned by the caller of the method.
