Class

AdwApplication

Description [src]

class Adw.Application : Gtk.Application {
  parent_instance: GtkApplication
}

A base class for Adwaita applications.

AdwApplication handles library initialization by calling adw_init() in the default GApplication::startup signal handler, in turn chaining up as required by GtkApplication. Therefore, any subclass of AdwApplication should always chain up its startup handler before using any Adwaita or GTK API.

Automatic Resources

AdwApplication will automatically load stylesheets located in the application’s resource base path (see g_application_set_resource_base_path(), if they’re present.

They can be used to add custom styles to the application, as follows:

  • style.css contains styles that are always present.

  • style-dark.css contains styles only used when AdwStyleManager:dark is TRUE.

  • style-hc.css contains styles used when the system high contrast preference is enabled.

  • style-hc-dark.css contains styles used when the system high contrast preference is enabled and AdwStyleManager:dark is TRUE.
