Class Details

class Gtk.AppChooserWidget(*args, **kwargs)
Bases:Gtk.Box, Gtk.AppChooser
Abstract:No
Structure:Gtk.AppChooserWidgetClass

Gtk.AppChooserWidget is a widget for selecting applications. It is the main building block for Gtk.AppChooserDialog. Most applications only need to use the latter; but you can use this widget as part of a larger widget if you have special needs.

Gtk.AppChooserWidget offers detailed control over what applications are shown, using the Gtk.AppChooserWidget :show-default, Gtk.AppChooserWidget :show-recommended, Gtk.AppChooserWidget :show-fallback, Gtk.AppChooserWidget :show-other and Gtk.AppChooserWidget :show-all properties. See the Gtk.AppChooser documentation for more information about these groups of applications.

To keep track of the selected application, use the Gtk.AppChooserWidget ::application-selected and Gtk.AppChooserWidget ::application-activated signals.
