$menu->set_accel_group ($accel_group)

$accel_group (Gtk2::AccelGroup)

string = $menu->get_accel_path

Since: gtk+ 2.14

$menu->set_accel_path ($accel_path)

$accel_path (string)

widget = $menu->get_active

$menu->set_active ($index)

$index (integer)

$menu->attach ($child, $left_attach, $right_attach, $top_attach, $bottom_attach)

  • $child (Gtk2::Widget)
  • $left_attach (integer)
  • $right_attach (integer)
  • $top_attach (integer)
  • $bottom_attach (integer)

Since: gtk+ 2.4

$menu->attach_to_widget ($attach_widget, $detach_func)

  • $attach_widget (Gtk2::Widget)
  • $detach_func (scalar)

Attach $menu to $attach_widget. $menu must not be currently attached to any other widget, including not a submenu of a "Gtk2::MenuItem".

If $menu is later detached from the widget with "$menu->detach" then the $detach_func is called as

&$detach_func ($attach_widget, $menu)

widget = $menu->get_attach_widget

$widget (Gtk2::Widget)

Since: gtk+ 2.6

Since: gtk+ 2.14

$menu->set_monitor ($monitor_num)

$monitor_num (integer)

Since: gtk+ 2.4

$menu->popup ($parent_menu_shell, $parent_menu_item, $menu_pos_func, $data, $button, $activate_time)

  • $parent_menu_shell (Gtk2::Widget or undef)
  • $parent_menu_item (Gtk2::Widget or undef)
  • $menu_pos_func (scalar)
  • $data (scalar)
  • $button (integer)
  • $activate_time (integer)

If $menu_pos_func is not "undef" it's called as

($x, $y, $push_in) = &$menu_pos_func ($menu, $x, $y, $data)

$x,$y inputs are a proposed position based on the mouse pointer (not actually documented in the Gtk manuals). The return should be a desired $x,$y, and an optional $push_in flag. If $push_in is true then Gtk will adjust $x,$y if necessary so the menu is fully visible in the screen width and height.

$menu_pos_func and $data are stored in $menu and may be called again later for a "$menu->reposition" or some obscure things like a changed "set_screen" while torn-off. A further "$menu->popup" call replaces $menu_pos_func and $data.

$menu->reorder_child ($child, $position)

  • $child (Gtk2::Widget)
  • $position (integer)

boolean = $menu->get_reserve_toggle_size

Since: gtk+ 2.18

$menu->set_reserve_toggle_size ($reserve_toggle_size)

$reserve_toggle_size (boolean)

Since: gtk+ 2.18

$menu->set_screen ($screen)

$screen (Gtk2::Gdk::Screen or undef)

Since: gtk+ 2.2

boolean = $menu->get_tearoff_state

$menu->set_tearoff_state ($torn_off)

$torn_off (boolean)

string = $menu->get_title

$menu->set_title ($title)
