Re: changing the content of a model/view/store at run time

A grand "Thank you" to Daniel Boles and Phil Wolff for their help.  I had been mixing up gtk and gtkmm documentation!  I am attaching the complete now working code for anyone interested.

As indicated by the error message, liststore1 is a RefPtr to a ListStore model, which is a C++ entity that

    1) cannot be used as an argument to a gtk+ function, and

    2) cannot be dereferenced with the * operator.

At a more fundamental level, this approach is unnecessarily complicated. The entire contents of the function can be replace with a single statement:

    liststore1->clear ();

I have changed from a tree store to a list store now, and I have working code, except for the last line in this call back used when a radio button is clicked in order to erase the list store and replace it with another at run time:

  void ExampleWindow::on_rb2_clicked()
    std::cout << "rb2 clicked" << std::endl;

    typedef Gtk::TreeModel::Children type_children;
    type_children children = liststore1->children();
    type_children::iterator iter;
    for(iter=children.begin(); iter!=children.end(); ++iter)
               gtk_list_store_remove (*liststore1,*iter);


The compiler message I get is In member function ‘void ExampleWindow::on_rb2_clicked()’: error: no match for ‘operator*’ (operand type is ‘Glib::RefPtr<Gtk::ListStore>’)
    gtk_list_store_remove (*liststore1,*iter);

So my question is, I suppose, what is the proper syntax for using gtk_list_store_remove ???

I'm trying to learn how to iterate over model rows in a manner similar to the code segment in section 9.3 of the gnome gtkmm tutorial.  Consider me a newbie; the "something" I want to do below is delete/clear/erase a row - really all rows so I can display a new set of rows in response to a user action like changing a radio button.  But I haven't been able to do it. Here is the snippit from section 9.3:

typedef Gtk::TreeModel::Children type_children; //minimise code length.
type_children children = refModel->children();
for(type_children::iterator iter = children.begin();
     iter != children.end(); ++iter)
   Gtk::TreeModel::Row row = *iter;
   //Do something with the row - see above for set/get.

*I'm also confused by the following comment I found on line; I don't see how this can work with the above code either. ***
iterator Gtk::TreeStore:erase(const iterator& iter)
    Returns an iterator to the next row or end() if there is none"

I hope you can help me .  Thanks, PCR
