GtkIMContextSimple — An input method context supporting table-based input methods
GObject ╰── GtkIMContext ╰── GtkIMContextSimple
GtkIMContextSimple is a simple input method context supporting table-based input methods. It has a built-in table of compose sequences that is derived from the X11 Compose files.
GtkIMContextSimple reads additional compose sequences from the first of the following files that is found: ~/.config/gtk-3.0/Compose, ~/.XCompose, /usr/share/X11/locale/$locale/Compose (for locales that have a nontrivial Compose file). The syntax of these files is described in the Compose(5) manual page.
GtkIMContextSimple also supports numeric entry of Unicode characters by typing Ctrl-Shift-u, followed by a hexadecimal Unicode codepoint. For example, Ctrl-Shift-u 1 2 3 Enter yields U+0123 LATIN SMALL LETTER G WITH CEDILLA, i.e. ģ.
GtkIMContext * gtk_im_context_simple_new (
Creates a new GtkIMContextSimple.
a new GtkIMContextSimple.
void gtk_im_context_simple_add_table (
Adds an additional table to search to the input context.
Each row of the table consists of
followed by two guint16 interpreted as the high and low
words of a gunicode value. Tables are searched starting
from the last added.
The table must be sorted in dictionary order on the numeric value of the key symbol fields. (Values beyond the length of the sequence should be zero.)
