The window widget
- User Option: type
The TYPE options specify how this widget will interact with the
window manager. Currently the following types and the effect they
have on the window to window manager interaction is as follows.
* The option `GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL' is usually used for the
main application window that will remain for the entire
* The option `GTK_WINDOW_DIALOG' is usually used for
transient windows. These windows will open up, gather
some input or provide some application specific updates,
then close. The window manager is free not to provide
all the 'normal' window functions to this window.
* The option `GTK_WINDOW_POPUP' is usually used for
transient windows. These windows are typically used for
when no user interaction is required, to notify the user
of some condition. Other uses for these types of windows
are for 'about windows', startup windows and the like.
Typically the window manager will *not* provide the
usual widgets that surround the window. At the most all
that will be provided is a border. Also note that
windows that set this TYPE will not be in any window
list of the window manager. Though this window will
*not* get the kill and close widgets of the window
manager they still can receive said events and should be
taken into account.
- User Option: title
The TITLE option will set the title of the window in the window
`GTK_WINDOW_POPUP' there is a strong possibility that this will
text will not be seen.
- User Option: position
The POSITION option will determine where the window will be
displayed when it is finally drawn to the screen. Currently the
following positions and the effect they have on window placement
can be specified.
* This POSITION type will allow the window manager full
freedom, depending on the current settings in the window
manager. As to where the window will be placed.
* This POSITION option will cause the window to center
itself on the the screen. This option setting will take
into account the VIRTUAL SCREEN size when calculating
the center. This is *not* the same as the VIRTUAL
DESKTOP setting of many window managers. It will center
itself on the current VIRTUAL DESKTOP.
This POSITION option will cause the window to center
itself under the mouse pointers' current location.
Typical uses for this setting is in
warning/error/informational dialogs where user
interaction is desired.
- Signal: void GtkWindow::move_resize (GtkWindow *WINDOW, gint *X,
gint *Y, gint WIDTH, gint HEIGHT)
- Signal: void GtkWindow::set_focus (GtkWindow *WINDOW, GtkWidget
- Function: guint gtk_window_get_type (void)
Returns the `GtkWindow' type identifier.
- Function: GtkWidget* gtk_window_new (GtkWindowType TYPE)
Create a new `GtkWindow' object. The new widget is returned as a
pointer to a `GtkWidget' object. `NULL' is returned on failure.
The TYPE can be one of `GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL', `GTK_WINDOW_DIALOG'
or, `GTK_WINDOW_POPUP'. The TYPE value determines how this widget
will interact with the window manager.
- Function: void gtk_window_set_title (GtkWindow *WINDOW, gchar *TITLE)
Set the title of this window to the text in the TITLE argument. It
is important to not set the fields of the `GtkWindow' structure
- Function: void gtk_window_set_focus (GtkWindow *WINDOW, GtkWidget
- Function: void gtk_window_set_default (GtkWindow *WINDOW, GtkWidget
- Function: void gtk_window_set_policy (GtkWindow *WINDOW, gint

*WINDOW, GtkAcceleratorTable *TABLE)
- Function: void gtk_window_position (GtkWindow *WINDOW,
Set the position that the window will be at when it is finally
drawn to the screen. The POSITION argument effects the the
position as described above.
