Gtk2::BindingSet - wrapper for GtkBindingSet

A "Gtk2::BindingSet" is basically a mapping from keyval+modifiers to a named action signal to invoke and with argument values for the signal. Bindings are normally run by the "Gtk2::Widget" default "key-press-event" handler, but can also be activated explicitly.

Binding sets can be populated from program code with "entry_add_signal", or created from an RC file or string (see Gtk2::Rc). If you use the RC note it doesn't parse and create anything until there's someone interested in the result, such as "Gtk2::Settings" for widgets. This means binding sets in RC files or strings don't exist for "Gtk2::BindingSet->find" to retrieve until at least one widget has been created (or similar).

Currently there's no Perl-level access to the contents of a BindingSet, except for "set_name".

+----Gtk2::BindingSet

$set_name (string)

  • $keyval (integer)
  • $modifiers (Gtk2::Gdk::ModifierType)
  • $object (Gtk2::Object)

$binding_set->add_path ($path_type, $path_pattern, $priority)

  • $path_type (Gtk2::PathType)
  • $path_pattern (string)
  • $priority (integer)

The following constants are defined for standard priority levels,

Gtk2::GTK_PATH_PRIO_LOWEST
Gtk2::GTK_PATH_PRIO_GTK
Gtk2::GTK_PATH_PRIO_APPLICATION
Gtk2::GTK_PATH_PRIO_THEME
Gtk2::GTK_PATH_PRIO_RC
Gtk2::GTK_PATH_PRIO_HIGHEST

LOWEST, which is 0, and HIGHEST, which is 15, are the limits of the allowed priorities. The standard values are from the "Gtk2::PathPriorityType" enum, but the parameter here is an integer, not an enum string, so you can give a value for instance a little above or below the pre-defined levels.

bindingset or undef = Gtk2::BindingSet->by_class ($name)

$name (string)

$binding_set->entry_add_signal ($keyval, $modifiers, $signal_name)

$binding_set->entry_add_signal ($keyval, $modifiers, $signal_name, $type,$value, ...)

  • $keyval (integer)
  • $modifiers (Gtk2::Gdk::ModifierType)
  • $signal_name (string)
  • $value (scalar)
  • $type (string)

Add an entry to $binding_set. $keyval and $modifier are setup as a binding for $signal_name and with signal parameters given by $value arguments. Each value is preceded by a type (a string), which must be one of

Glib::Long
Glib::Double
Glib::String
an enum type, ie. subtype of Glib::Enum
Glib::Flags, or a flags subtype

For example,

$binding_set->entry_add_signal
    (Gtk2->keyval_from_name('Return'),
     [ 'control-mask' ],   # modifiers
     'some-signal-name',
     'Glib::Double', 1.5,
     'Glib::String,  'hello');

A parameter holds one of the three types Long, Double or String. When invoked they're coerced to the parameter types expected by the target object or widget. Use Glib::Long for any integer argument, including chars and unichars by ordinal value. Use Glib::Double for both single and double precision floats.

Flags and enums are held as Longs in the BindingSet. You can pass an enum type and string and "entry_with_signal" will lookup and store accordingly. For example

$binding_set->entry_add_signal
    (Gtk2->keyval_from_name('Escape), [],
     'set-direction',
     'Gtk2::Orientation', 'vertical');

Likewise flags from an arrayref,

$binding_set->entry_add_signal
    (Gtk2->keyval_from_name('d'), [],
     'initiate-drag',
     'Gtk2::Gdk::DragAction', ['move,'ask']);

If you've got a Glib::Flags object, rather than just an arrayref, then you can just give Glib::Flags as the type and the value is taken from the object. For example,

my $flags = Gtk2::DebugFlag->new (['tree', 'updates']);
$binding_set->entry_add_signal
    (Gtk2->keyval_from_name('x'), ['control-mask'],
     'change-debug',
     'Glib::Flags', $flags);

$binding_set->entry_remove ($keyval, $modifiers)

  • $keyval (integer)
  • $modifiers (Gtk2::Gdk::ModifierType)

$binding_set->entry_skip ($keyval, $modifiers)

  • $keyval (integer)
  • $modifiers (Gtk2::Gdk::ModifierType)

Since: gtk+ 2.12

bindingset or undef = Gtk2::BindingSet->find ($name)

$name (string)

Return the name of $binding_set.
