Declaration [src]

gtk_widget_activate (
  GtkWidget* widget

Description [src]

For widgets that can be “activated” (buttons, menu items, etc.), this function activates them.

The activation will emit the signal set using gtk_widget_class_set_activate_signal() during class initialization.

Activation is what happens when you press Enter on a widget during key navigation.

If you wish to handle the activation keybinding yourself, it is recommended to use gtk_widget_class_add_shortcut() with an action created with gtk_signal_action_new().

If widget isn’t activatable, the function returns FALSE.

Return value

Type: gboolean

TRUE if the widget was activatable.
