Implemented Interfaces

GtkCssProvider implements GtkStyleProvider and GtkStyleProviderPrivate.

Includes

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

Description

GtkCssProvider is an object implementing the GtkStyleProvider interface. It is able to parse CSS-like input in order to style widgets.

An application can make GTK+ parse a specific CSS style sheet by calling gtk_css_provider_load_from_file() or gtk_css_provider_load_from_resource() and adding the provider with gtk_style_context_add_provider() or gtk_style_context_add_provider_for_screen().

In addition, certain files will be read when GTK+ is initialized. First, the file $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/gtk-3.0/gtk.css is loaded if it exists. Then, GTK+ loads the first existing file among XDG_DATA_HOME/themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk.css, $HOME/.themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk.css, $XDG_DATA_DIRS/themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk.css and DATADIR/share/themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk.css, where THEME is the name of the current theme (see the “gtk-theme-name” setting), DATADIR is the prefix configured when GTK+ was compiled (unless overridden by the GTK_DATA_PREFIX environment variable), and VERSION is the GTK+ version number. If no file is found for the current version, GTK+ tries older versions all the way back to 3.0.

In the same way, GTK+ tries to load a gtk-keys.css file for the current key theme, as defined by “gtk-key-theme-name”.

Functions

gtk_css_provider_get_default ()

GtkCssProvider *
gtk_css_provider_get_default (void);

gtk_css_provider_get_default has been deprecated since version 3.24 and should not be used in newly-written code.

Use gtk_css_provider_new() instead.

Returns the provider containing the style settings used as a fallback for all widgets.

Returns

The provider used for fallback styling. This memory is owned by GTK+, and you must not free it.

[transfer none]


gtk_css_provider_get_named ()

GtkCssProvider *
gtk_css_provider_get_named (const gchar *name,
                            const gchar *variant);

Loads a theme from the usual theme paths

Parameters

name

A theme name

 

variant

variant to load, for example, "dark", or NULL for the default.

[allow-none]

Returns

a GtkCssProvider with the theme loaded. This memory is owned by GTK+, and you must not free it.

[transfer none]


gtk_css_provider_load_from_data ()

gboolean
gtk_css_provider_load_from_data (GtkCssProvider *css_provider,
                                 const gchar *data,
                                 gssize length,
                                 GError **error);

Parameters

css_provider

a GtkCssProvider

 

data

CSS data loaded in memory.

[array length=length][element-type guint8]

length

the length of data in bytes, or -1 for NUL terminated strings. If length is not -1, the code will assume it is not NUL terminated and will potentially do a copy.

 

error

return location for a GError, or NULL.

[out][allow-none]

Returns

TRUE. The return value is deprecated and FALSE will only be returned for backwards compatibility reasons if an error is not NULL and a loading error occurred. To track errors while loading CSS, connect to the “parsing-error” signal.

Parameters

css_provider

a GtkCssProvider

 

file

GFile pointing to a file to load

 

error

return location for a GError, or NULL.

[out][allow-none]

Returns

TRUE. The return value is deprecated and FALSE will only be returned for backwards compatibility reasons if an error is not NULL and a loading error occurred. To track errors while loading CSS, connect to the “parsing-error” signal.


gtk_css_provider_load_from_path ()

gboolean
gtk_css_provider_load_from_path (GtkCssProvider *css_provider,

a GtkCssProvider

 

path

the path of a filename to load, in the GLib filename encoding

 

error

return location for a GError, or NULL.

[out][allow-none]

gtk_css_provider_load_from_resource ()

void
gtk_css_provider_load_from_resource (GtkCssProvider *css_provider,
                                     const gchar *resource_path);

Loads the data contained in the resource at resource_path into the GtkCssProvider, clearing any previously loaded information.

To track errors while loading CSS, connect to the “parsing-error” signal.

Parameters

a GtkCssProvider

 

resource_path

a GResource resource path

 

Since: 3.16


gtk_css_provider_new ()

GtkCssProvider *
gtk_css_provider_new (void);

Returns a newly created GtkCssProvider.

Returns

A new GtkCssProvider


gtk_css_provider_to_string ()

char *
gtk_css_provider_to_string (GtkCssProvider *provider);

Converts the provider into a string representation in CSS format.

Using gtk_css_provider_load_from_data() with the return value from this function on a new provider created with gtk_css_provider_new() will basically create a duplicate of this provider .

Parameters

provider

the provider to write to a string

 

Returns

a new string representing the provider .

Since: 3.2


gtk_css_section_get_end_line ()

guint
gtk_css_section_get_end_line (const GtkCssSection *section);

Returns the line in the CSS document where this section end. The line number is 0-indexed, so the first line of the document will return 0. This value may change in future invocations of this function if section is not yet parsed completely. This will for example happen in the GtkCssProvider::parsing-error signal. The end position and line may be identical to the start position and line for sections which failed to parse anything successfully.

Parameters

section

the section

 

Returns

the line number

Since: 3.2


gtk_css_section_get_end_position ()

guint
gtk_css_section_get_end_position (const GtkCssSection *section);

Returns the offset in bytes from the start of the current line returned via gtk_css_section_get_end_line(). This value may change in future invocations of this function if section is not yet parsed completely. This will for example happen in the GtkCssProvider::parsing-error signal. The end position and line may be identical to the start position and line for sections which failed to parse anything successfully.

Parameters

section

the section

 

Returns

the offset in bytes from the start of the line.

Since: 3.2


gtk_css_section_get_file ()

GFile *
gtk_css_section_get_file (const GtkCssSection *section);

Gets the file that section was parsed from. If no such file exists, for example because the CSS was loaded via gtk_css_provider_load_from_data() , then NULL is returned.

Parameters

section

the section

 

Returns

the GFile that section was parsed from or NULL if section was parsed from other data.

[transfer none]

Since: 3.2


gtk_css_section_get_parent ()

GtkCssSection *
gtk_css_section_get_parent (const GtkCssSection *section);

Gets the parent section for the given section . The parent section is the section that contains this section . A special case are sections of type GTK_CSS_SECTION_DOCUMENT. Their parent will either be NULL if they are the original CSS document that was loaded by gtk_css_provider_load_from_file() or a section of type GTK_CSS_SECTION_IMPORT if it was loaded with an import rule from a different file.

Parameters

section

the section

Signal Details

The “parsing-error” signal

void
user_function (GtkCssProvider *provider,
               GtkCssSection  *section,
               GError         *error,
               gpointer        user_data)

Signals that a parsing error occurred. the path , line and position describe the actual location of the error as accurately as possible.

Parsing errors are never fatal, so the parsing will resume after the error. Errors may however cause parts of the given data or even all of it to not be parsed at all. So it is a useful idea to check that the parsing succeeds by connecting to this signal.

Note that this signal may be emitted at any time as the css provider may opt to defer parsing parts or all of the input to a later time than when a loading function was called.

Parameters

provider

the provider that had a parsing error

 

section

section the error happened in

 

error

The parsing error

 

user_data

user data set when the signal handler was connected.
