Re: gtksourceviewmm 3.12

Hi again,

to answer a few of my own questions ...

2.) Regenerate the signals.defs files
I did this using ./codegen/extradefs/generate_extra_defs > ./gtksourceview/src/gtksourceview_signals.defs
But that uses the *installed* gtksourceviewmm, which is 3.16.1 in my case. Is there any proper alternative for using the installed version?

4.) Write down the .hg and .ccg files
I was just missing a "const" in front of the Glib::ustring& which caused the trouble.

Best wishes,

Hi list,

I've started to look into adding some classes to gtksourceviewmm. Right now I'm facing the issue, that I could not find information on the process of adding new classes. So far I figured that I need to do the following:

1.) Regenerate the method.defs files
I'm using from glibmm on the sources of gtksourceview 3.12.3. So far I managed to regenerate the methods using the following command:

$ ../glibmm/tools/defs_gen/ ../gtksourceview/gtksourceview/ > gtksourceview/src/gtksourceview_methods.defs 

2.) Regenerate the signals.defs files
From my understanding this contains the signals and properties, but I have no clue on how to generate this. Any hints welcome!

3.) Add the new class to codegen/extradefs/

4.) Write down the .hg and .ccg files
I pretty much understand the syntax but I'm uncertain about type conversions. For example if I have the method "gtk_source_search_settings_set_search_text()" which takes a "const gchar*" in C it should use a Glib::ustring& in C++, I'm getting a "No conversion from Glib::ustring& to const gchar* defined". Also: any hints welcome!

5.) Add the hg files to gtksourceview/src/

6.) Build

From my understanding these should be the necessary steps, right? Is there any comprehensive documentation on the process I am missing that would explain the problems listed above? Can someone please help me with this process?

Best wishes,

Hi Murray,

no worries, we've all missed to push a tag once in a while.

I'd be interested to add SearchContext myself. Last time I tried to add something to *mm I failed badly. Let's see if it works better this time.

Thanks, Christoph

Sorry. I've just pushed that tag.
The tarball is here, by the way:

I probably did the least necessary. Patches would be very welcome.
