Re: what to replace GtkList with for Gtk2::Combo

assuming that you see files in Gtk2/xs/ called GtkList.xs and GtkListItem.xs,
but no .c versions. you need to rerun

perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=xxx/whatever/you/wish/yyy

as a general rul any time new xs files are added the makefile(s) need to be
regenerated. if you do this and things still don't seem to work let me know.

That sounds great, I'll certainly test it and try to write some t stuff.
But i have to sound like a retard though and ask how to get it... I just
checked out CVS and there's nothing new in it AFAIK.



GtkList and GtkListItem have been added with comments saying that you
should only use it in Combo context etc. etc.

their entire xs wrapper code is contained in #ifdef GTK_TYPE_LIST(_ITEM)
in hopes that if removed from gtk-2.2.x it won't totally break the
wrappers (of course the code that uses GtkCombo's will) i would be
surprised if it's ever removed in the 2.2 tree.

since you were needing to use it be sure to test it out as you do. let me
know if you find any problems. i haven't tried out any of it so it could
be totally broken. it does compile and test ok, but that doesn't mean much
since there are not test of that specific code.

there is some test code in the t directory for GtkCombo's if you want add
some stuff to it to test out GtkList and GtkListItems. for that matter
anyone is more than welcome to code up a test for the t directory of any
of the modules. submit it to the list. if it tests something useful and we
like the look of it then it will get included.

I've noticed that GtkList has now apparenlty been officially deprecated
in Gtk2, but GtkCombo's have not been. and the Gtk2::Combo still says
that it uses a GtkList. As Gtk2-perl apparently, and reasonably enough,
is not implementing any deprecated functionality I get an error from my
program trying to access list->clear_items, saying GtkList doesn't
exist, and falls though to a GtkContainer, which naturally doesn't have
hte clear_items method.

How can a non-deprecated widget contain a deprecated one? am i missing
somethine? I'd be havppy to use a GtkListStore but there appears to be
no way to use this within a dropdown box...

from what i can tell you are correct. i'll work up bindings for GtkList
here in a few minutes that should provide the necessary functionality. i
must agree that it seems odd to have a widget using a deprecated widget
as one of it's members. especially since it would seem a reasonable
endeavor to convert the combo box's list member, but anyway...

i'll send out to the list when i get this done. if there's a reason not
to do so someone speak up and let me know.
