Declaration [src]

gtk_label_set_markup (
  GtkLabel* self,
  const char* str

Description [src]

Sets the labels text and attributes from markup.

The string must be marked up with Pango markup (see pango_parse_markup()).

If the str is external data, you may need to escape it with g_markup_escape_text() or g_markup_printf_escaped():

GtkWidget *self = gtk_label_new (NULL);
const char *str = "...";
const char *format = "<span style=\"italic\">\%s</span>";
char *markup;

markup = g_markup_printf_escaped (format, str);
gtk_label_set_markup (GTK_LABEL (self), markup);
g_free (markup);

This function will set the GtkLabel:use-markup property to TRUE as a side effect.

If you set the label contents using the GtkLabel:label property you should also ensure that you set the GtkLabel:use-markup property accordingly.
