Description [src]

Widgets can be named, which allows you to refer to them from a CSS file. You can apply a style to widgets with a particular name in the CSS file. See the documentation for the CSS syntax (on the same page as the docs for GtkStyleContext).

Note that the CSS syntax has certain special characters to delimit and represent elements in a selector (period, #, >, *…), so using these will make your widget impossible to match by name. Any combination of alphanumeric symbols, dashes and underscores will suffice.

Sets propertyGtk.Widget:name


name const gchar*

Name for the widget.
