class Gtk::WindowGroup


GtkWindowGroup makes group of windows behave like separate applications.

It achieves this by limiting the effect of GTK grabs and modality to windows in the same group.

A window can be a member in at most one window group at a time. Windows that have not been explicitly assigned to a group are implicitly treated like windows of the default window group.

GtkWindowGroup objects are referenced by each window in the group, so once you have added all windows to a GtkWindowGroup, you can drop the initial reference to the window group with g_object_unref(). If the windows in the window group are subsequently destroyed, then they will be removed from the window group and drop their references on the window group; when all window have been removed, the window group will be freed.

Constructor Detail

def : self #

Creates a new GtkWindowGroup object.

Modality of windows only affects windows within the same GtkWindowGroup.

def list_windows : GLib::List #

Returns a list of the GtkWindows that belong to @window_group.
