Declaration [src]

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

Description [src]

Parses a string containing a UI definition, building only the requested objects and merges them with the current contents of builder.

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

If you are adding an object that depends on an object that is not its child (for instance a GtkTreeView that depends on its GtkTreeModel), you have to explicitly list all of them in object_ids.



Type: 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.

Type: gssize

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


Type: An array of utf8

Nul-terminated array of objects to build.

The array must be NULL-terminated.
The data is owned by the caller of the function.
Each element is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.

Type: GError **

The return location for an error.

The argument can be NULL.
The argument will be set to NULL by the function if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set and the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: gboolean

TRUE on success, FALSE if an error occurred.
