Declaration [src]

gtk_file_chooser_set_current_name (
  GtkFileChooser* chooser,
  const gchar* name

Description [src]

Sets the current name in the file selector, as if entered by the user. Note that the name passed in here is a UTF-8 string rather than a filename. This function is meant for such uses as a suggested name in a “Save As…” dialog. You can pass “Untitled.doc” or a similarly suitable suggestion for the name.

If you want to preselect a particular existing file, you should use gtk_file_chooser_set_filename() or gtk_file_chooser_set_uri() instead. Please see the documentation for those functions for an example of using gtk_file_chooser_set_current_name() as well.

Available since: 2.4



Type: const gchar*

The filename to use, as a UTF-8 string.

The data is owned by the caller of the method.
The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.
