Re: remove a toolbar icon

Ok, here's what I have:

later in code:
if($blah) {

These are the errors that are showing during this process:
Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_toolbar_remove: assertion `content_to_remove !=
NULL' failed at ./stuff line 1064.

This assertion comes from inside the GtkToolbar virtual handler for GtkContainer::remove; it means that you're trying to remove a widget that wasn't in the toolbar. You're probably getting into the - >remove branch on $new_button before $new_button has been added to the toolbar.

Gtk-WARNING **: Can't set a parent on widget which has a parent
Gtk-ERROR **: file gtkcontainer.c: line 2447

Here you've tried to add to a container a widget that is already in a different container. You have to either remove first or reparent it.

(gtk_container_propagate_expose): assertion failed: (child->parent ==
GTK_WIDGET (container)) at ./stuff line 289.

This is probably just the result of broken invariants in the rest of the code.

Any hints?

It would probably be easier just to add all of the buttons to the toolbar up front, then show and hide them as needed, and thus avoid all this reparenting stuff.

(The meticulous and error-prone bookkeeping here is why i suggested UIManager. ;-)
