Coding Update

I haven’t blogged on my coding activities in a long while, so I figured I’d do so now. I just finished a patch to GtkLabel that implements an “ellipsize” property, using owen’s great work getting that into PangoLayout. Now all the various “BlahEllipsizingLabel” widgets can go away.

I then used that in the FileChooserButton widget I’ve been working on, after doing some cleanups and a reorganization to match GTK+ coding standards. I sent that code to the gtk-devel mailing list (archives are 2 days behind, for some reason).

Finally, I’ve been working on integrating the icon chooser I’ve been working on into libegg.

    Rock! This is great. Any chance you might add the same feature to the GtkCellRenderText for use in GtkTreeView?

  2. Jimbob says:

    It’s possible, yes, the main issue is working out how the get_size() and render() methods interact, though the code could easily be taken from the size_request() and expose() handlers to deal with that for GtkCellRendererText. There’s also a bug on that.
