Class

Gtk.StringFilter

Description [src]

final class Gtk.StringFilter : Gtk.Filter {
  /* No available fields */
}

GtkStringFilter determines whether to include items by comparing strings to a fixed search term.

The strings are obtained from the items by evaluating a GtkExpression set with gtk_string_filter_set_expression(), and they are compared against a search term set with gtk_string_filter_set_search().

GtkStringFilter has several different modes of comparison - it can match the whole string, just a prefix, or any substring. Use gtk_string_filter_set_match_mode() choose a mode.

It is also possible to make case-insensitive comparisons, with gtk_string_filter_set_ignore_case().

Gets the expression that the string filter uses to obtain strings from items.

gtk_string_filter_get_ignore_case

Returns whether the filter ignores case differences.

gtk_string_filter_get_match_mode

Returns the match mode that the filter is using.

gtk_string_filter_get_search

Gets the search term.

gtk_string_filter_set_expression

Sets the expression that the string filter uses to obtain strings from items.

gtk_string_filter_set_ignore_case

Sets whether the filter ignores case differences.

gtk_string_filter_set_match_mode

Sets the match mode for the filter.

gtk_string_filter_set_search

Sets the string to search for.

Methods inherited from GtkFilter (3)
gtk_filter_changed

Emits the GtkFilter::changed signal to notify all users of the filter that the filter changed. Users of the filter should then check items again via gtk_filter_match().

gtk_filter_get_strictness

Gets the known strictness of filters. If the strictness is not known, GTK_FILTER_MATCH_SOME is returned.

gtk_filter_match

Checks if the given item is matched by the filter or not.

Properties

Gtk.StringFilter:expression

The expression to evaluate on item to get a string to compare with.

Gtk.StringFilter:ignore-case

If matching is case sensitive.

Gtk.StringFilter:match-mode

If exact matches are necessary or if substrings are allowed.

Gtk.StringFilter:search

The search term.
