class Gtk::StringList


Gtk::StringList is a list model that wraps an array of strings.

The objects in the model have a "string" property.

Gtk::StringList is well-suited for any place where you would typically use a char*[], but need a list model.

Gtk::StringList as Gtk::Buildable

The Gtk::StringList implementation of the Gtk::Buildable interface supports adding items directly using the element and specifying elements for each item. Each element supports the regular translation attributes “translatable”, “context” and “comments”.

Here is a UI definition fragment specifying a Gtk::StringList

WARNING ⚠️ The following code is in xml ⚠️

<object class="Gtk::StringList">
    <item translatable="yes">Factory</item>
    <item translatable="yes">Home</item>
    <item translatable="yes">Subway</item>

Constructor Detail

def : Enumerable(String)?) : self #

Creates a new Gtk::StringList with the given @strings.

def #

Initialize a new StringList.

def*strings : String) #

Class Method Detail

def self.g_type : UInt64 #

Returns the type id (GType) registered in GLib type system.

Instance Method Detail

def append(string : String) : Nil #

Appends @string to @self.

The @string will be copied. See Gtk::StringList#take for a way to avoid that.

def remove(position : UInt32) : Nil #

Removes the string at @position from @self.

@position must be smaller than the current length of the list.

def splice(position : UInt32, n_removals : UInt32, additions : Enumerable(String)?) : Nil #

Changes @self by removing @n_removals strings and adding @additions to it.

This function is more efficient than Gtk::StringList#append and Gtk::StringList#remove, because it only emits the ::items-changed signal once for the change.

This function copies the strings in @additions.

The parameters @position and @n_removals must be correct (ie: @position + @n_removals must be less than or equal to the length of the list at the time this function is called).

def string(position : UInt32) : String? #

Gets the string that is at @position in @self.

If @self does not contain @position items, nil is returned.

This function returns the const char *. To get the object wrapping it, use g_list_model_get_item().

def take(string : String) : Nil #

Adds @string to self at the end, and takes ownership of it.

This variant of Gtk::StringList#append is convenient for formatting strings:
