Declaration [src]

gtk_builder_add_from_string (
  GtkBuilder* builder,
  const char* buffer,
  gssize length,
  GError** error

Description [src]

Parses a string containing a UI definition and merges it with the current contents of builder.

This function is useful if you need to call gtk_builder_set_current_object() to add user data to callbacks before loading GtkBuilder UI. Otherwise, you probably want gtk_builder_new_from_string() instead.

Upon errors FALSE will be returned and error will be assigned a GError from the GTK_BUILDER_ERROR, G_MARKUP_ERROR or G_VARIANT_PARSE_ERROR domain.

It’s not really reasonable to attempt to handle failures of this call. The only reasonable thing to do when an error is detected is to call g_error().


buffer const char*

The string to parse.

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

The length of buffer (may be -1 if buffer is nul-terminated)

error GError **
  The return location for a GError*, or NULL.

Return value

Returns: gboolean

TRUE on success, FALSE if an error occurred.
