[Glade-users] Text Entry Box


I should have mentioned this in my original email, but I am using gtkmm. 
My text entry box is of class Gtk::Entry.  The compiler that I am using 
(MSVS 2005) gives me an error when I try to use the 
get_editable_set_position() fn since it can't "convert parameter 1 from 
Gtk::Entry *' to 'GtkEditable *'".

I can't find a member function similar to get_editable_set_position() that 
belongs to the Gtk::Entry class.  Is there a way to type cast the 
GtK::Entry into a GtkEditable type?  Or do you know of a similar function 
that will operate on a Gtk::Entry type? 

Sorry for my confusion, I am pretty new to GTK and Glade.  Thanks for your

I am using a Text Entry box (GtkEntry), and am trying to find a way to
align the text in such a way that when the text is longer than the
entry box can display, it will display the last part of the text and
not the first. 

Specifically, I am allowing the user to enter in a file name (with
path).  I also have a button to allow the user to create the "next"
output file (which adds an index to the existing file name).  My
problem is that when I hit the "Next" button the alignment of the text
in the Entry Box slides to the beginning of the file name, and thus
all I am able to see is the directory structure and not the file

It seemed alining the text so the last part would be visible should be
possible, but I could not find how to do it anywhere in the
documentation... Is there something that I am missing? 

Any help would be greatly appreciated! 

You can set the cursor position to the end using this function:
