Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message - Provides a simple message dialog.
use Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message ( destroy_with_parent => TRUE, modal => TRUE, no_separator => FALSE ); # do some stuff like creating your app's main $window then, # to ensure that all messages use the right parent, set it: $Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message::parent_window = $window; # now popup a new dialog ( blocking the main loop if there is one ) new_and_run Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message ( title => "Dialog Title", text => "This is a simple message" ); # now popup a somwhat useful dialog that doesn't block any main loop # but on the other side of the coin, if there is no main loop the # dialog will be completely unresponsive. new_show Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message ( title => "Uhm", text => "Use when there is a main loop." );
This module provides a simple dialog api that wraps Gtk2::Dialog objectively. The objective is a clean and simple message dialog (only an "OK" button).
All public methods (and the entire class) support the following options:
- title => STRING
The title of the dialog window. Defaults to an empty string.
- text => STRING
The text to be displayed. This is the core purpose of the module and is the only mandatory argument.
- icon => /path/to/image || stock-id || Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf || Gtk2::Image
The dialog-sized image to place to the left of the text. Note: there are five aliased stock-ids which correspond to the five gtk-dialog-* ids, "warning", "question", "info", "error" and "authentication". Defaults to no icon being created at all.
- parent_window => Gtk2::Window
Reference to the main application window.
- destroy_with_parent => BOOL
When the parent_window is destroyed, what do we do? Defaults to FALSE.
- modal => BOOL
Does this message make the parent_window freeze while the message exists. Defaults to FALSE.
- no_separator => BOOL
Draw the horizontal separator between the content area and the button area below. Defaults to FALSE.
- OBJECT = new ( OPTIONS | STRING )
Create a new Gtk2::Dialog with only an "OK" button, some text and an optional icon to the left of the text. The icon can be any of the following: a stock-id string, a Gtk2::Image, Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf or the full path to an image. Return a Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message object. In the special case of being passed only one argument, all options are set to defaults and the one argument is used as the text option.
- new_and_run ( OPTIONS )
Supports all the same arguments as new(). This will create a new Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message, show_all(), run() and then destroy the dialog immediately.
- new_and_show ( OPTIONS )
Supports all the same arguments as new(). This will create a new Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message, show_all() and process any pending gtk events. This functionality is only of any practical use when there is a Gtk2 main loop running. If there is no main loop running the dialog will be visible but completely unresponsive to the end-user.
