void gtk_widget_init_template ( GtkWidget* widget )
Creates and initializes child widgets defined in templates.
This function must be called in the instance initializer for any class which assigned itself a template using gtk_widget_class_set_template().
It is important to call this function in the instance initializer
GtkWidget subclass and not in
GObject.constructor() for two reasons:
- derived widgets will assume that the composite widgets defined by its parent classes have been created in their relative instance initializers
- when calling
g_object_new()on a widget with composite templates, it’s important to build the composite widgets before the construct properties are set. Properties passed to
g_object_new()should take precedence over properties set in the private template XML
A good rule of thumb is to call this function as the first thing in an instance initialization function.
