Class Details

class Gtk.ModelButton(*args, **kwargs)
Bases:Gtk.Button
Abstract:No

Gtk.ModelButton is a button class that can use a Gio.Action as its model. In contrast to Gtk.ToggleButton or Gtk.RadioButton, which can also be backed by a Gio.Action via the Gtk.Actionable :action-name property, Gtk.ModelButton will adapt its appearance according to the kind of action it is backed by, and appear either as a plain, check or radio button.

Model buttons are used when popovers from a menu model with Gtk.Popover.new_from_model(); they can also be used manually in a Gtk.PopoverMenu.

When the action is specified via the Gtk.Actionable :action-name and Gtk.Actionable :action-target properties, the role of the button (i.e. whether it is a plain, check or radio button) is determined by the type of the action and doesn’t have to be explicitly specified with the Gtk.ModelButton :role property.

The content of the button is specified by the Gtk.ModelButton :text and Gtk.ModelButton :icon properties.

The appearance of model buttons can be influenced with the Gtk.ModelButton :centered and Gtk.ModelButton :iconic properties.

Model buttons have built-in support for submenus in Gtk.PopoverMenu. To make a Gtk.ModelButton that opens a submenu when activated, set the Gtk.ModelButton :menu-name property. To make a button that goes back to the parent menu, you should set the Gtk.ModelButton :inverted property to place the submenu indicator at the opposite side.

Example
<object class="GtkPopoverMenu">
  <child>
    <object class="GtkBox">
      <property name="visible">True</property>
      <property name="margin">10</property>
      <child>
        <object class="GtkModelButton">
          <property name="visible">True</property>
          <property name="action-name">view.cut</property>
          <property name="text" translatable="yes">Cut</property>
        </object>
      </child>
      <child>
        <object class="GtkModelButton">
          <property name="visible">True</property>
          <property name="action-name">view.copy</property>
          <property name="text" translatable="yes">Copy</property>

          <property name="action-name">view.paste</property>
          <property name="text" translatable="yes">Paste</property>

CSS nodes

╰── arrow

Gtk.ModelButton has a main CSS node with name modelbutton, and a subnode, which will have the name check, radio or arrow, depending on the role of the button and whether it has a menu name set.

The subnode is positioned before or after the content nodes and gets the .left or .right style class, depending on where it is located.

button.model
├── <child>
╰── check

Iconic model buttons (see Gtk.ModelButton :iconic) change the name of their main node to button and add a .model style class to it. The indicator subnode is invisible in this case.
