Description [src]

abstract class Gtk.CellArea : GObject.InitiallyUnowned {
  /* No available fields */
}

An abstract class for laying out GtkCellRenderers

The GtkCellArea is an abstract class for GtkCellLayout widgets (also referred to as “layouting widgets”) to interface with an arbitrary number of GtkCellRenderers and interact with the user for a given GtkTreeModel row.

The cell area handles events, focus navigation, drawing and size requests and allocations for a given row of data.

Usually users dont have to interact with the GtkCellArea directly unless they are implementing a cell-layouting widget themselves.

Requesting area sizes

As outlined in [GtkWidget’s geometry management section][geometry-management], GTK uses a height-for-width geometry management system to compute the sizes of widgets and user interfaces. GtkCellArea uses the same semantics to calculate the size of an area for an arbitrary number of GtkTreeModel rows.

When requesting the size of a cell area one needs to calculate the size for a handful of rows, and this will be done differently by different layouting widgets. For instance a GtkTreeViewColumn always lines up the areas from top to bottom while a GtkIconView on the other hand might enforce that all areas received the same width and wrap the areas around, requesting height for more cell areas when allocated less width.

It’s also important for areas to maintain some cell alignments with areas rendered for adjacent rows (cells can appear “columnized” inside an area even when the size of cells are different in each row). For this reason the GtkCellArea uses a GtkCellAreaContext object to store the alignments and sizes along the way (as well as the overall largest minimum and natural size for all the rows which have been calculated with the said context).

The GtkCellAreaContext is an opaque object specific to the GtkCellArea which created it (see gtk_cell_area_create_context()). The owning cell-layouting widget can create as many contexts as it wishes to calculate sizes of rows which should receive the same size in at least one orientation (horizontally or vertically), However, it’s important that the same GtkCellAreaContext which was used to request the sizes for a given GtkTreeModel row be used when rendering or processing events for that row.

In order to request the width of all the rows at the root level of a GtkTreeModel one would do the following:

GtkTreeIter iter;
int         minimum_width;
int         natural_width;

valid = gtk_tree_model_get_iter_first (model, &iter);
while (valid)
  {
    gtk_cell_area_apply_attributes (area, model, &iter, FALSE, FALSE);
    gtk_cell_area_get_preferred_width (area, context, widget, NULL, NULL);

    valid = gtk_tree_model_iter_next (model, &iter);
  }
gtk_cell_area_context_get_preferred_width (context, &minimum_width, &natural_width);

Note that in this example it’s not important to observe the returned minimum and natural width of the area for each row unless the cell-layouting object is actually interested in the widths of individual rows. The overall width is however stored in the accompanying GtkCellAreaContext object and can be consulted at any time.

This can be useful since GtkCellLayout widgets usually have to support requesting and rendering rows in treemodels with an exceedingly large amount of rows. The GtkCellLayout widget in that case would calculate the required width of the rows in an idle or timeout source (see g_timeout_add()) and when the widget is requested its actual width in Gtk.WidgetClass.measure it can simply consult the width accumulated so far in the GtkCellAreaContext object.

A simple example where rows are rendered from top to bottom and take up the full width of the layouting widget would look like:

static void
foo_get_preferred_width (GtkWidget       *widget,
                         int             *minimum_size,
                         int             *natural_size)
{
  Foo        *foo  = FOO (widget);
  FooPrivate *priv = foo->priv;

  foo_ensure_at_least_one_handfull_of_rows_have_been_requested (foo);

  gtk_cell_area_context_get_preferred_width (priv->context, minimum_size, natural_size);
}

In the above example the Foo widget has to make sure that some row sizes have been calculated (the amount of rows that Foo judged was appropriate to request space for in a single timeout iteration) before simply returning the amount of space required by the area via the GtkCellAreaContext.

Requesting the height for width (or width for height) of an area is a similar task except in this case the GtkCellAreaContext does not store the data (actually, it does not know how much space the layouting widget plans to allocate it for every row. It’s up to the layouting widget to render each row of data with the appropriate height and width which was requested by the GtkCellArea).

In order to request the height for width of all the rows at the root level of a GtkTreeModel one would do the following:

GtkTreeIter iter;
int         minimum_height;
int         natural_height;
int         full_minimum_height = 0;
int         full_natural_height = 0;

valid = gtk_tree_model_get_iter_first (model, &iter);
while (valid)
  {
    gtk_cell_area_apply_attributes (area, model, &iter, FALSE, FALSE);
    gtk_cell_area_get_preferred_height_for_width (area, context, widget,
                                                  width, &minimum_height, &natural_height);

    if (width_is_for_allocation)
       cache_row_height (&iter, minimum_height, natural_height);

    full_minimum_height += minimum_height;
    full_natural_height += natural_height;

    valid = gtk_tree_model_iter_next (model, &iter);
  }

Note that in the above example we would need to cache the heights returned for each row so that we would know what sizes to render the areas for each row. However we would only want to really cache the heights if the request is intended for the layouting widgets real allocation.

In some cases the layouting widget is requested the height for an arbitrary for_width, this is a special case for layouting widgets who need to request size for tens of thousands of rows. For this case it’s only important that the layouting widget calculate one reasonably sized chunk of rows and return that height synchronously. The reasoning here is that any layouting widget is at least capable of synchronously calculating enough height to fill the screen height (or scrolled window height) in response to a single call to Gtk.WidgetClass.measure. Returning a perfect height for width that is larger than the screen area is inconsequential since after the layouting receives an allocation from a scrolled window it simply continues to drive the scrollbar values while more and more height is required for the row heights that are calculated in the background.

Rendering Areas

Once area sizes have been acquired at least for the rows in the visible area of the layouting widget they can be rendered at Gtk.WidgetClass.snapshot time.

A crude example of how to render all the rows at the root level runs as follows:

GtkAllocation allocation;
GdkRectangle  cell_area = { 0, };
GtkTreeIter   iter;
int           minimum_width;
int           natural_width;

gtk_widget_get_allocation (widget, &allocation);
cell_area.width = allocation.width;

valid = gtk_tree_model_get_iter_first (model, &iter);
while (valid)
  {
    cell_area.height = get_cached_height_for_row (&iter);

    gtk_cell_area_apply_attributes (area, model, &iter, FALSE, FALSE);
    gtk_cell_area_render (area, context, widget, cr,
                          &cell_area, &cell_area, state_flags, FALSE);

    cell_area.y += cell_area.height;

    valid = gtk_tree_model_iter_next (model, &iter);
  }

Note that the cached height in this example really depends on how the layouting widget works. The layouting widget might decide to give every row its minimum or natural height or, if the model content is expected to fit inside the layouting widget without scrolling, it would make sense to calculate the allocation for each row at the time the widget is allocated using gtk_distribute_natural_allocation().

Handling Events and Driving Keyboard Focus

Passing events to the area is as simple as handling events on any normal widget and then passing them to the gtk_cell_area_event() API as they come in. Usually GtkCellArea is only interested in button events, however some customized derived areas can be implemented who are interested in handling other events. Handling an event can trigger the GtkCellArea::focus-changed signal to fire; as well as GtkCellArea::add-editable in the case that an editable cell was clicked and needs to start editing. You can call gtk_cell_area_stop_editing() at any time to cancel any cell editing that is currently in progress.

The GtkCellArea drives keyboard focus from cell to cell in a way similar to GtkWidget. For layouting widgets that support giving focus to cells it’s important to remember to pass GTK_CELL_RENDERER_FOCUSED to the area functions for the row that has focus and to tell the area to paint the focus at render time.

Layouting widgets that accept focus on cells should implement the Gtk.WidgetClass.focus virtual method. The layouting widget is always responsible for knowing where GtkTreeModel rows are rendered inside the widget, so at Gtk.WidgetClass.focus time the layouting widget should use the GtkCellArea methods to navigate focus inside the area and then observe the GtkDirectionType to pass the focus to adjacent rows and areas.

A basic example of how the Gtk.WidgetClass.focus virtual method should be implemented:

static gboolean
foo_focus (GtkWidget       *widget,
           GtkDirectionType direction)
{
  Foo        *foo  = FOO (widget);
  FooPrivate *priv = foo->priv;
  int         focus_row;
  gboolean    have_focus = FALSE;

  focus_row = priv->focus_row;

  if (!gtk_widget_has_focus (widget))
    gtk_widget_grab_focus (widget);

  valid = gtk_tree_model_iter_nth_child (priv->model, &iter, NULL, priv->focus_row);
  while (valid)
    {
      gtk_cell_area_apply_attributes (priv->area, priv->model, &iter, FALSE, FALSE);

      if (gtk_cell_area_focus (priv->area, direction))
        {
           priv->focus_row = focus_row;
           have_focus = TRUE;
           break;
        }
      else
        {
          if (direction == GTK_DIR_RIGHT ||
              direction == GTK_DIR_LEFT)
            break;
          else if (direction == GTK_DIR_UP ||
                   direction == GTK_DIR_TAB_BACKWARD)
           {
              if (focus_row == 0)
                break;
              else
               {
                  focus_row--;
                  valid = gtk_tree_model_iter_nth_child (priv->model, &iter, NULL, focus_row);
               }
            }
          else
            {
              if (focus_row == last_row)
                break;
              else
                {
                  focus_row++;
                  valid = gtk_tree_model_iter_next (priv->model, &iter);
                }
            }
        }
    }
    return have_focus;
}

Note that the layouting widget is responsible for matching the GtkDirectionType values to the way it lays out its cells.

Cell Properties

The GtkCellArea introduces cell properties for GtkCellRenderers. This provides some general interfaces for defining the relationship cell areas have with their cells. For instance in a GtkCellAreaBox a cell might “expand” and receive extra space when the area is allocated more than its full natural request, or a cell might be configured to “align” with adjacent rows which were requested and rendered with the same GtkCellAreaContext.

Use gtk_cell_area_class_install_cell_property() to install cell properties for a cell area class and gtk_cell_area_class_find_cell_property() or gtk_cell_area_class_list_cell_properties() to get information about existing cell properties.

To set the value of a cell property, use gtk_cell_area_cell_set_property(), gtk_cell_area_cell_set() or gtk_cell_area_cell_set_valist(). To obtain the value of a cell property, use gtk_cell_area_cell_get_property(), gtk_cell_area_cell_get() or gtk_cell_area_cell_get_valist().

Adds renderer to area, setting cell properties at the same time. See gtk_cell_area_add() and gtk_cell_area_cell_set() for more details.

gtk_cell_area_apply_attributes

Applies any connected attributes to the renderers in area by pulling the values from tree_model.

gtk_cell_area_attribute_connect

Connects an attribute to apply values from column for the GtkTreeModel in use.

gtk_cell_area_attribute_disconnect

Disconnects attribute for the renderer in area so that attribute will no longer be updated with values from the model.

gtk_cell_area_create_context

Creates a GtkCellAreaContext to be used with area for all purposes. GtkCellAreaContext stores geometry information for rows for which it was operated on, it is important to use the same context for the same row of data at all times (i.e. one should render and handle events with the same GtkCellAreaContext which was used to request the size of those rows of data).

gtk_cell_area_event

Delegates event handling to a GtkCellArea.

gtk_cell_area_focus

Returns whether sibling is one of renderer’s focus siblings (see gtk_cell_area_add_focus_sibling()).

gtk_cell_area_remove

Removes renderer from area.

gtk_cell_area_remove_focus_sibling

Removes sibling from renderer’s focus sibling list (see gtk_cell_area_add_focus_sibling()).

gtk_cell_area_request_renderer

This is a convenience function for GtkCellArea implementations to request size for cell renderers. It’s important to use this function to request size and then use gtk_cell_area_inner_cell_area() at render and event time since this function will add padding around the cell for focus painting.

gtk_cell_area_set_focus_cell

Explicitly sets the currently focused cell to renderer.

Virtual methods

Gtk.CellAreaClass.activate

Activates area, usually by activating the currently focused cell, however some subclasses which embed widgets in the area can also activate a widget if it currently has the focus.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.add

Adds renderer to area with the default child cell properties.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.apply_attributes

Applies any connected attributes to the renderers in area by pulling the values from tree_model.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.copy_context

This is sometimes needed for cases where rows need to share alignments in one orientation but may be separately grouped in the opposing orientation.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.create_context

Creates a GtkCellAreaContext to be used with area for all purposes. GtkCellAreaContext stores geometry information for rows for which it was operated on, it is important to use the same context for the same row of data at all times (i.e. one should render and handle events with the same GtkCellAreaContext which was used to request the size of those rows of data).

Gtk.CellAreaClass.event

Delegates event handling to a GtkCellArea.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.focus

This should be called by the area’s owning layout widget when focus is to be passed to area, or moved within area for a given direction and row data.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.foreach

Calls callback for every GtkCellRenderer in area.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.foreach_alloc

Calls callback for every GtkCellRenderer in area with the allocated rectangle inside cell_area.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.get_cell_property
No description available.
Gtk.CellAreaClass.get_preferred_height

Retrieves a cell area’s initial minimum and natural height.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.get_preferred_height_for_width

Retrieves a cell area’s minimum and natural height if it would be given the specified width.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.get_preferred_width

Retrieves a cell area’s initial minimum and natural width.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.get_preferred_width_for_height

Retrieves a cell area’s minimum and natural width if it would be given the specified height.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.get_request_mode

Gets whether the area prefers a height-for-width layout or a width-for-height layout.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.is_activatable

Returns whether the area can do anything when activated, after applying new attributes to area.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.remove

Removes renderer from area.

Gtk.CellAreaClass.set_cell_property
No description available.
Gtk.CellAreaClass.snapshot

Snapshots area’s cells according to area’s layout onto at the given coordinates.

Class methods

gtk_cell_area_class_find_cell_property

Finds a cell property of a cell area class by name.

gtk_cell_area_class_install_cell_property

Installs a cell property on a cell area class.

gtk_cell_area_class_list_cell_properties

Returns all cell properties of a cell area class.
