Class Details

class Gtk.Notebook(**kwargs)
Bases:Gtk.Container
Abstract:No
Structure:Gtk.NotebookClass

The Gtk.Notebook widget is a Gtk.Container whose children are pages that can be switched between using tab labels along one edge.

There are many configuration options for Gtk.Notebook. Among other things, you can choose on which edge the tabs appear (see Gtk.Notebook.set_tab_pos()), whether, if there are too many tabs to fit the notebook should be made bigger or scrolling arrows added (see Gtk.Notebook.set_scrollable()), and whether there will be a popup menu allowing the users to switch pages. (see Gtk.Notebook.popup_enable(), Gtk.Notebook.popup_disable())

Gtk.Notebook as Gtk.Buildable

The Gtk.Notebook implementation of the Gtk.Buildable interface supports placing children into tabs by specifying “tab” as the “type” attribute of a <child> element. Note that the content of the tab must be created before the tab can be filled. A tab child can be specified without specifying a <child> type attribute.

To add a child widget in the notebooks action area, specify “action-start” or “action-end” as the “type” attribute of the <child> element.

An example of a UI definition fragment with Gtk.Notebook:

<object class="GtkNotebook">
  <child>
    <object class="GtkLabel" id="notebook-content">
      <property name="label">Content</property>
    </object>
  </child>
  <child type="tab">
    <object class="GtkLabel" id="notebook-tab">
      <property name="label">Tab</property>
    </object>
  </child>
</object>

Gtk.Notebook has a main CSS node with name notebook, a subnode with name header and below that a subnode with name tabs which contains one subnode per tab with name tab.

If action widgets are present, their CSS nodes are placed next to the tabs node. If the notebook is scrollable, CSS nodes with name arrow are placed as first and last child of the tabs node.

The main node gets the .frame style class when the notebook has a border (see Gtk.Notebook.set_show_border()).

The header node gets one of the style class .top, .bottom, .left or .right, depending on where the tabs are placed. For reorderable pages, the tab node gets the .reorderable-page class.

A tab node gets the .dnd style class while it is moved with drag-and-drop.

The nodes are always arranged from left-to-right, regarldess of text direction.

Parameters:

Sets widget as one of the action widgets. Depending on the pack type the widget will be placed before or after the tabs. You can use a Gtk.Box if you need to pack more than one widget on the same side.

Note that action widgets are “internal” children of the notebook and thus not included in the list returned from Gtk.Container.foreach().

New in version 2.20.

set_current_page(page_num)[source]
Parameters:page_num (int) – index of the page to switch to, starting from 0. If negative, the last page will be used. If greater than the number of pages in the notebook, nothing will be done.

Switches to the page number page_num.

Note that due to historical reasons, Gtk.Notebook refuses to switch to a page unless the child widget is visible. Therefore, it is recommended to show child widgets before adding them to a notebook.

set_group_name(group_name)[source]
Parameters:group_name (str or None) – the name of the notebook group, or None to unset it

Sets a group name for self.

Notebooks with the same name will be able to exchange tabs via drag and drop. A notebook with a None group name will not be able to exchange tabs with any other notebook.

New in version 2.24.

set_menu_label(child, menu_label)[source]
Parameters:

Changes the menu label for the page containing child.

set_menu_label_text(child, menu_text)[source]
Parameters:
  • child (Gtk.Widget) – the child widget
  • menu_text (str) – the label text

Creates a new label and sets it as the menu label of child.

set_scrollable(scrollable)[source]
Parameters:scrollable (bool) – True if scroll arrows should be added

Sets whether the tab label area will have arrows for scrolling if there are too many tabs to fit in the area.

set_show_border(show_border)[source]
Parameters:show_border (bool) – True if a bevel should be drawn around the notebook

Sets whether a bevel will be drawn around the notebook pages. This only has a visual effect when the tabs are not shown. See Gtk.Notebook.set_show_tabs().

set_show_tabs(show_tabs)[source]
Parameters:show_tabs (bool) – True if the tabs should be shown

Sets whether to show the tabs for the notebook or not.

set_tab_detachable(child, detachable)[source]
Parameters:

Sets whether the tab can be detached from self to another notebook or widget.

Note that 2 notebooks must share a common group identificator (see Gtk.Notebook.set_group_name()) to allow automatic tabs interchange between them.

If you want a widget to interact with a notebook through DnD (i.e.: accept dragged tabs from it) it must be set as a drop destination and accept the target “GTK_NOTEBOOK_TAB”. The notebook will fill the selection with a Gtk.Widget pointing to the child widget that corresponds to the dropped tab.

Note that you should use Gtk.Notebook.detach_tab() instead of Gtk.Container.remove() if you want to remove the tab from the source notebook as part of accepting a drop. Otherwise, the source notebook will think that the dragged tab was removed from underneath the ongoing drag operation, and will initiate a drag cancel animation.

}

If you want a notebook to accept drags from other widgets, you will have to set your own DnD code to do it.

New in version 2.10.

set_tab_label(child, tab_label)[source]
Parameters:

Changes the tab label for child. If None is specified for tab_label, then the page will have the label “page N”.
