Class

GtkColumnView

Description [src]

final class Gtk.ColumnView : Gtk.Widget {
  /* No available fields */
}

GtkColumnView presents a large dynamic list of items using multiple columns with headers.

GtkColumnView uses the factories of its columns to generate a cell widget for each column, for each visible item and displays them together as the row for this item.

The GtkColumnView:show-row-separators and GtkColumnView:show-column-separators properties offer a simple way to display separators between the rows or columns.

GtkColumnView allows the user to select items according to the selection characteristics of the model. For models that allow multiple selected items, it is possible to turn on rubberband selection, using GtkColumnView:enable-rubberband.

The column view supports sorting that can be customized by the user by clicking on column headers. To set this up, the GtkSorter returned by gtk_column_view_get_sorter()() must be attached to a sort model for the data that the view is showing, and the columns must have sorters attached to them by calling gtk_column_view_column_set_sorter()(). The initial sort order can be set with gtk_column_view_sort_by_column()().

The column view also supports interactive resizing and reordering of columns, via Drag-and-Drop of the column headers. This can be enabled or disabled with the GtkColumnView:reorderable and GtkColumnViewColumn:resizable properties.

GtkColumnView uses a single CSS node named columnview. It may carry the .column-separators style class, when GtkColumnView:show-column-separators property is set. Header widgets appear below a node with name header. The rows are contained in a GtkListView widget, so there is a listview node with the same structure as for a standalone GtkListView widget. If GtkColumnView:show-row-separators is set, it will be passed on to the list view, causing its CSS node to carry the .separators style class. For rubberband selection, a node with name rubberband is used.

The main columnview node may also carry style classes to select the style of list presentation: .rich-list, .navigation-sidebar or .data-table.

Accessibility

GtkColumnView uses the GTK_ACCESSIBLE_ROLE_TREE_GRID role, header title widgets are using the GTK_ACCESSIBLE_ROLE_COLUMN_HEADER role. The row widgets are using the GTK_ACCESSIBLE_ROLE_ROW role, and individual cells are using the GTK_ACCESSIBLE_ROLE_GRID_CELL role.
