View Full Version : [SOLVED] GtkBuilder and "names"

November 25th, 2011, 01:20 AM
Hi, I've been trying to get the "names" of all GtkWidgets in a GtkBuilder object.

I've managed to get all objects from the builder object via gtk_builder_get_objects() and store them in a GSList.

However, when I use gtk_widget_get_name() on the gobjects (which i cast to GtkWidgets), I get generic names such as "GtkWindow" and "GtkButton" instead of "window1" or "button1" that are displayed in glade.

Any help would be extremely appreciated and would make this sleepy programmer very happy.

I believe you need to use gtk_buildable_get_name to get the GtkBuilder ID.

This was apparently changed a few years ago: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=591085

Thank you!

Using the gtkBuildable interface did indeed do the trick. It's not too late to back out of a very painful and horrible design decision.

Your advice came just in time :)
