Class Details

class Gtk.Statusbar(*args, **kwargs)
Bases:Gtk.Box
Abstract:No
Structure:Gtk.StatusbarClass

A Gtk.Statusbar is usually placed along the bottom of an application’s main Gtk.Window. It may provide a regular commentary of the application’s status (as is usually the case in a web browser, for example), or may be used to simply output a message when the status changes, (when an upload is complete in an FTP client, for example).

Status bars in GTK+ maintain a stack of messages. The message at the top of the each bar’s stack is the one that will currently be displayed.

Any messages added to a statusbar’s stack must specify a context id that is used to uniquely identify the source of a message. This context id can be generated by Gtk.Statusbar.get_context_id(), given a message and the statusbar that it will be added to. Note that messages are stored in a stack, and when choosing which message to display, the stack structure is adhered to, regardless of the context identifier of a message.

One could say that a statusbar maintains one stack of messages for display purposes, but allows multiple message producers to maintain sub-stacks of the messages they produced (via context ids).

Status bars are created using Gtk.Statusbar.new().

Messages are added to the bar’s stack with Gtk.Statusbar.push().

The message at the top of the stack can be removed using Gtk.Statusbar.pop(). A message can be removed from anywhere in the stack if its message id was recorded at the time it was added. This is done using Gtk.Statusbar.remove().

CSS node

Gtk.Statusbar has a single CSS node with name statusbar.

classmethod new()[source]
Returns:the new Gtk.Statusbar
Return type:Gtk.Widget

Creates a new Gtk.Statusbar ready for messages.

get_context_id(context_description)[source]
Parameters:context_description (str) – textual description of what context the new message is being used in
Returns:an integer id
Return type:int

Returns a new context identifier, given a description of the actual context. Note that the description is not shown in the UI.

get_message_area()[source]
Returns:a Gtk.Box
Return type:Gtk.Box

Retrieves the box containing the label widget.

New in version 2.20.

pop(context_id)[source]
Parameters:context_id (int) – a context identifier

Removes the first message in the Gtk.Statusbar’s stack with the given context id.

Note that this may not change the displayed message, if the message at the top of the stack has a different context id.

push(context_id, text)[source]
Parameters:
Returns:

a message id that can be used with Gtk.Statusbar.remove().

Return type:

int

Pushes a new message onto a statusbar’s stack.

remove(context_id, message_id)[source]
Parameters:
  • context_id (int) – a context identifier
  • message_id (int) – a message identifier, as returned by Gtk.Statusbar.push()

Forces the removal of a message from a statusbar’s stack. The exact context_id and message_id must be specified.

remove_all(context_id)[source]
Parameters:context_id (int) – a context identifier

Forces the removal of all messages from a statusbar’s stack with the exact context_id.

New in version 2.22.

Parameters:
  • context_id (int) –
  • text (str) –
do_text_pushed(context_id, text) virtual
Parameters:
