Declaration [src]

gtk_tree_view_set_tooltip_column (
  GtkTreeView* tree_view,
  int column

Description [src]

If you only plan to have simple (text-only) tooltips on full rows, you can use this function to have GtkTreeView handle these automatically for you. column should be set to the column in tree_view’s model containing the tooltip texts, or -1 to disable this feature.

When enabled, GtkWidget:has-tooltip will be set to TRUE and tree_view will connect a GtkWidget::query-tooltip signal handler.

Note that the signal handler sets the text with gtk_tooltip_set_markup(), so &, <, etc have to be escaped in the text.


column int

An integer, which is a valid column number for tree_view’s model.
