Re: GTK and Customize menu widget - widget which can display some textand allows selection

You can use the "Enter" or "Return" key to select GtkTreeView items, so GtkTreeView should be an option. I've made a widget like this before on GTK+ Forums, so you can look at it for reference, although you should keep in mind that the implementation isn't the greatest (it should use
private data for example):
Here is the topic:
and here is my widget:

Hi All,
I tried with GtkTreeView but I couldnt click on an entry to select it. I either have mouse or Keyboard in my system and not both at a time. This means that I should design such that it can be selected with a mouse and as well as a keyboard.

i had to do the same thing once upon a time and, using the manuals
    and widget descriptions, did it.
i don't understand your question. in that, what have you tried
    that didn't work?
since i'm assuming you tried to implement this yourself, before
    simply asking other people who've already done the study work to
    simply give over the fruits of their labor while you (seemingly)
    haven't even tried?
the list is intended for unobvious problems, not simply posing
    questions you don't immediately know the answer to and (seemingly)
    unwilling to invest the time yourself to discover/learn how to do it.
sorry if this comes across as bitchy. i guess i resent it a
    little bit that i've already done the work via study,
    experimentation, and trial and error; while you simply want the
    answer without putting in the effort to discover it yourself.

    Hi All,
I am using Gtk 2.12.2 and I want to use a widget similar to the
    one given below (taken for example from WinCVS). How is this
    possible in GTK?
