Class

Gtk.ListView

Description [src]

final class Gtk.ListView : Gtk.ListBase {
  /* No available fields */
}

GtkListView presents a large dynamic list of items.

GtkListView uses its factory to generate one row widget for each visible item and shows them in a linear display, either vertically or horizontally.

The GtkListView:show-separators property offers a simple way to display separators between the rows.

GtkListView 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 GtkListView:enable-rubberband.

If you need multiple columns with headers, see GtkColumnView.

To learn more about the list widget framework, see the overview.

An example of using GtkListView:

static void
setup_listitem_cb (GtkListItemFactory *factory,
                   GtkListItem        *list_item)
{
  GtkWidget *image;

  image = gtk_image_new ();
  gtk_image_set_icon_size (GTK_IMAGE (image), GTK_ICON_SIZE_LARGE);
  gtk_list_item_set_child (list_item, image);
}

static void
bind_listitem_cb (GtkListItemFactory *factory,
                  GtkListItem        *list_item)
{
  GtkWidget *image;
  GAppInfo *app_info;

  image = gtk_list_item_get_child (list_item);
  app_info = gtk_list_item_get_item (list_item);
  gtk_image_set_from_gicon (GTK_IMAGE (image), g_app_info_get_icon (app_info));
}

static void
activate_cb (GtkListView  *list,
             guint         position,
             gpointer      unused)
{
  GAppInfo *app_info;

  app_info = g_list_model_get_item (G_LIST_MODEL (gtk_list_view_get_model (list)), position);
  g_app_info_launch (app_info, NULL, NULL, NULL);
  g_object_unref (app_info);
}

...

  model = create_application_list ();

  factory = gtk_signal_list_item_factory_new ();
  g_signal_connect (factory, "setup", G_CALLBACK (setup_listitem_cb), NULL);
  g_signal_connect (factory, "bind", G_CALLBACK (bind_listitem_cb), NULL);

  list = gtk_list_view_new (GTK_SELECTION_MODEL (gtk_single_selection_new (model)), factory);

  g_signal_connect (list, "activate", G_CALLBACK (activate_cb), NULL);

  gtk_scrolled_window_set_child (GTK_SCROLLED_WINDOW (sw), list);

GtkListView uses a single CSS node named listview. It may carry the .separators style class, when GtkListView:show-separators property is set. Each child widget uses a single CSS node named row. For rubberband selection, a node with name rubberband is used.

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

Accessibility

GtkListView uses the GTK_ACCESSIBLE_ROLE_LIST role, and the list items use the GTK_ACCESSIBLE_ROLE_LIST_ITEM role.
