Tree and List Widget Overview — Overview of GtkTreeModel, GtkTreeView, and friends of a list store. Creating a tree store operates almost exactly the same. A ew and its associated widgets are an extremely powerful way of displaying data. They are used in conjunction with a ore or Gtk. TreeStore. In this part of the GTK+ tutorial, we cover the GtkTreeView widget. Three examples demonstrate the functionality of the widget.

They are used in conjunction with a Gtk. To do this, a GtkTreeIter must be acquired.

TreeView and its associated widgets are an extremely powerful way of displaying data. It is possible to develop a new type of model, but the existing models should be satisfactory for all but the most specialized of situations.

Alfred Benjamin Charles David alfred benjamin charles david. GtkTreeView widget tugorial a complex widget which can be used to display lists and trees. Tree and List Widgets In practice, it supplies the Gtk. TreeIter by calling Gtk. TreeView widget has a model, it will need to know how to display the model.

GtkTreeView Tutorial (basic)

TreeStorea path is a list of indexes or a string. Sorting by clicking on columns We place a GtkVBox into the window. It needs to know the name of the column to label for the user, what type of cell renderer to use, and which gtkgreeview of data to retrieve from the model for a given row. They handle data that are displayed in the GtkTreeView widget.


The model is implemented by GtkTreeModel actually, classes implementing that interfacethe view by GtkTreeView with some helpers, and the controller by the user code.

With the power and flexibility of a Gtk. Adding data to the model is done using Gtk. ListStore contains simple rows of data, and each row has gtktrdeview children, whereas Gtk.

This function gets two rows and has to return a negative integer if the first one should come before the second one, zero if they are equal and a positive integer if the second one should come before the second one.

The example application in this article lets the user manage a folder tree.

Tree and List Widgets — Python GTK+ 3 Tutorial documentation

While there are several different models to choose from, there is only one view widget to deal with. Sorting is an important feature for tree views and is supported by the standard tree models Gtk. GtkTreeSelection is an object that handles selections. TreeView uses to organize the vertical columns in the tree view.

GtkTreeView widget

We append a new row and set a value to the row, which is referenced by an GtkTreeIter object. The purpose of the cell renderers is to provide extensibility to the widget and to allow multiple ways of rendering the same type of htktreeview.


With each version, the power and usefulness of the widgets have increased. The View is composed of the first three objects, tuorial the last is the Model.

Read the Docs v: Print values of all columns print row [: There are several other objects that are used with the GtkTreeView widget. Think, for example, of a programmer’s editor: TreeModelwhich contains the data displayed by the TreeView. This means that the data is separated from the view. It is relatively easy to write a custom renderer.

The example is actually derived from Lodju, in which the folders have nothing to do with the filesystem. Then the sort function has to tutorrial set by Gtk.

Simple Example Here is a simple example of using a GtkTreeView widget in context of the other widgets.
