Re: GTkcList

Here is a a code example taken from one the examples that comes with gtk-2.
In that example the GtkcList was "hard coded".
Instead of that, the GtkcList if filled with the content of a myqsl table
called clist.
Hope it will help you.

#include <gtk/gtk.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <mysql/mysql.h>

#define MYSQL_HOST   "localhost"       // database server name
#define MYSQL_DB     "clists"        // database name
#define MYSQL_USERID "hugolin"          // database user id
#define MYSQL_PASSWD "tristan"        // userid password
#define MYSQL_TABLE  "clist"          // table name

/* User clicked the "Add List" button. */
void button_add_clicked( gpointer data )
    int indx;

    /* Something silly to add to the list. 4 rows of 2 columns each */
    /*    gchar *drink[4][2] = { { "Milk",    "3 Oz" },
    /*                       { "Water",   "6 l" },
    /*                         { "Carrots", "2" },
    /*                       { "Snakes",  "55" } };*/
    gchar *drink[2];
    /* Here we do the actual adding of the text. It's done once for
     * each row.

  MYSQL mysql;
  MYSQL_RES *result;

  char query_str[100];


  if (!mysql_connect(&mysql,MYSQL_HOST,MYSQL_USERID,MYSQL_PASSWD))
    printf("Failed to connect to database: Error:

  if (mysql_select_db(&mysql,MYSQL_DB)) {
    printf("Failed to select table: Error: %s\n",mysql_error(&mysql));

  strcpy(query_str,"SELECT * FROM ");

  result = mysql_use_result(&mysql);

  while ((row = mysql_fetch_row(result)))
    gtk_clist_append ((GtkCList *)data, drink);
