Description [src]

The ::location-popup signal is a [keybinding signal][GtkBindingSignal] which gets emitted when the user asks for it.

This is used to make the file chooser show a “Location” prompt which the user can use to manually type the name of the file he wishes to select.

The default bindings for this signal are Control + L with a path string of “” (the empty string). It is also bound to / with a path string of “/” (a slash): this lets you type / and immediately type a path name. On Unix systems, this is bound to ~ (tilde) with a path string of “~” itself for access to home directories.

Default handler:

The default handler is called before the handlers added via g_signal_connect().

The signal can be emitted directly


path gchar*

A string that gets put in the text entry for the file name.

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