I am new to Gtkmm2 programing and so I don't know,
how can I make floating Toolbar in Gtkmm2 such as in Windows programs?
Any ideas? Any tips? Or just where can I find such info?
I'm new to Gtkmm2 programming as well. I think that since Gtkmm is just
a wrapper around Gtk, you would need to look for this capability in Gtk.
To date, I haven't seen a toolbar widget that detaches on any Linux
application that I use. However, I did find this reference to a
floating toolbar in this Gtk+ 2.0 tutorial page:
The above should be similar to any other GTK application. Just
initialization of GTK, creating the window, etc. There is only one thing
that probably needs some explanation: a handle box. A handle box is just
another box that can be used to pack widgets in to. The difference
between it and typical boxes is that it can be detached from a parent
window (or, in fact, the handle box remains in the parent, but it is
reduced to a very small rectangle, while all of its contents are
reparented to a new freely floating window). It is usually nice to have
a detachable toolbar, so these two widgets occur together quite often.
I find that there are LOTS of Gtk+ examples, but few Gtkmm examples.
When you ask yourself "How to I make Gtkmm do <this>?", and you can't
find the answer on Google, then you need to start asking "How do I make
<i>Gtk+</i> do <this>?" and you may have better luck.
