Tree and List Widget Overview — Overview of GtkTreeModel, GtkTreeView, and friends of a list store. Creating a tree store operates almost exactly the same. A ew and its associated widgets are an extremely powerful way of displaying data. They are used in conjunction with a ore or Gtk. TreeStore. In this part of the GTK+ tutorial, we cover the GtkTreeView widget. Three examples demonstrate the functionality of the widget.

Once data has been inserted, you can retrieve or modify data using the tree iter and column index. Both reference a particular row in a tree model.

Setting a custom sort function We will be able to add and remove items from the list view. TreeView uses to organize the vertical columns in the tree view. TreeView constructor, or by calling Gtk. ListStore contains only one level, i. Automatic updates when data is added, removed or edited Drag and drop support Sorting data Embedding widgets such as check boxes, progress bars, etc.

For example, a model mapping the file system could be created for a file manager. The example is actually derived from Lodju, in which the folders have nothing to do with the filesystem. While there are several different models to choose from, there is only one view widget to deal with.

TreeView and its associated widgets are an extremely powerful way of displaying data. The following example uses the GtkTreeView widget to display hierarchical data.

Should it render it as a string of “True” or “False”, “On” or “Off”, or should it be rendered as a checkbox?


Tree and List Widgets — Python GTK+ 3 Tutorial documentation

ListStore as a model. Although you can theoretically implement your own Model, you will normally use either the Gtk. ListStorehiding some elements to the view. To do this, a Gtktreeciew must be acquired.

Tree and List Widget Overview: GTK+ 3 Reference Manual

It is used to add a row gtktrreeview a GtkTreeStore as a child of an existing row. This function gets two rows and has to return a negative integer if the first one should come before the second one, zero if they are equal and a positive integer if the second one should come before the second one.

This sounds unnecessarily complicated, but the complexity is local, and this aproach actually simplifies overall program structure. It is relatively easy to write a custom renderer. The buttons add a new item, remove the selected item, and remove all items. This code checks if there is some item left in the list. It works with either the list or the tree store. They handle tutoriial that are displayed in the GtkTreeView widget.

The model is then destroyed automatically with the view. Obviously, we can remove items only if there is at least one left in the list.

GtkTreeView widget

Selection handling Most applications will need to not only deal with displaying data, but also receiving input events from users. One can convert a path to an iterator by calling Gtk. When constructing a model you have to specify the data types for each column the model holds. Columns and cell renderers Once the GtkTreeView widget has a model, it will need to know how to display the model.

You can create a new instance of a Gtk. Creating a tree store operates almost exactly the same. It needs to know the name of the column to label for the user, what type of cell renderer to use, and which piece of data to retrieve from the model for a given row.


TreeView has an associated Gtk. It does this with columns gtktreview cell renderers. Cell renderers are used to draw the data in the tree model in a way.

For example, it is often necessary to view the same data i. This means that the data is separated from the view. Setting up a GtkTreeView is not a difficult matter.

This creates a list store with two columns: GtkTreeSelection is an object that handles selections. It can be used to set the data in any or all columns in a given row.

In the same way the sorting function works, the Gtk. The next step is to enable sorting. With the power and flexibility of a Gtk.

It needs a GtkTreeModel to know where to retrieve its data from. For instance, this allows the same underlying data to be displayed and edited in 2 different ways at the same time. Go to page content Go to main menu Go to the search field.

For example, consider how to render a boolean variable. The iterator points to the location where data will be added. There are several other objects that are used with the GtkTreeView widget.

First we need a simple Gtk.
