[Glade-users] sliders and spinners

I have learned a lot from the GTK and GTK Fortran documentation.

And I do not mean to complain. I know it is a lot of work to do
properly. I view my role with the Fortran Tools to make it very easy to
a lot of things that otherwise would take time and provide a minimum of
explanation to get people started. I just wanted to make sure I was not
missing something obvious.

I will install the DevHelp. Thanks for that tip.

You should be looking at GTK+ documentation, not Glade documentation.

However for the latter, I agree we should have a user manual, but it's
both a lot of work and a moving target.

If you at least install the DevHelp program, and have the doc packages
for GTK+ installed, then Glade will enable some documentation
features at runtime (you wont see documentation actually in glade, but
there will be some added icons and menu options to show the
related documentation in the DevHelp docs browser).

Thank you for the response.
Your comments led me to look at the "Adjustment" things,
which I looked at before, but didn't see that it was relevant.

With a little trial and error, I made it work with a slider.

I am still curious if there isn't some place information like
this would be available to novices like myself. I did see that
you (Tristan) have written some nice documentation, but
for more advanced users, I think.

But, anyway, thanks again. I appreciate the help.

All of these widgets are basically views for the GtkAdjustment

In glade you can create a GtkAdjustment and set it as the "adjustment"
property of
any of the said widgets.

You can also have more than one of these widgets share the same

Configuring the adjustment values can be a bit tricky, mostly just
the page size and step increment, the step increment usually indicates
many units to climb per spin button click, of scrollbar
up/down/left/right button
click - while the page size is normally driven by a scrolled window,
how many units of the overall adjustment size fits in the scrolled

I have a few of the widgets figured out,
but couldn't have figured out the grouping
of the radio buttons without your help.

I am trying sliders and spinners. I cannot
see how to change their value. I am trying
Horizontal Scale, Vertical Scale and
Spin Button. They show up in Glade, but
I can't get the values to change.

Am I using the right widgets?
Help would be appreciated. Thanks.
