Class

GtkCalendar

Description [src]

final class Gtk.Calendar : Gtk.Widget {
  /* No available fields */
}

GtkCalendar is a widget that displays a Gregorian calendar, one month at a time.

An example GtkCalendar

A GtkCalendar can be created with gtk_calendar_new().

The date that is currently displayed can be altered with gtk_calendar_select_day().

To place a visual marker on a particular day, use gtk_calendar_mark_day() and to remove the marker, gtk_calendar_unmark_day(). Alternative, all marks can be cleared with gtk_calendar_clear_marks().

The selected date can be retrieved from a GtkCalendar using gtk_calendar_get_date().

Users should be aware that, although the Gregorian calendar is the legal calendar in most countries, it was adopted progressively between 1582 and 1929. Display before these dates is likely to be historically incorrect.

GtkCalendar has a main node with name calendar. It contains a subnode called header containing the widgets for switching between years and months.

The grid subnode contains all day labels, including week numbers on the left (marked with the .week-number css class) and day names on top (marked with the .day-name css class).

Day labels that belong to the previous or next month get the .other-month style class. The label of the current day get the .today style class.

Marked day labels get the :selected state assigned.
