Re: Another documentation inconsistency

Hi, ALL,

The documentation states:

Adds an activatable widget to the action area of a GtkDialog,
connecting a signal handler that will emit the “response” signal on
the dialog when the widget is activated. The widget is appended to the
end of the dialog’s action area. If you want to add a non-activatable
widget, simply pack it into the action_area field of the GtkDialog

The documentation should be fixed; it's a remnant of GTK+ 2.x.

You should file a bug here:

However the call to gtk_dialog_get_action_area() is deprecated since GTK+-3.12.

So, how do I pack thje non-activateable widget in there?

You can keep using the deprecated API, *if* you need to keep existing
code working; if you are writing new code, though, you shouldn't pack
non-activatable widgets inside the action area. The action area is for
actions; if your widget does not have an action associated to it, then
it should go in the content area.
