You can override the functionality of that button by connecting your
window or dialog to the delete event. Eg, if you want to hide the
window (but not close/destroy it), you can do

def hide(*args):
return gtk.TRUE
window.connect( 'delete_event', hide)
Or you can force your window to simply ignore users clicking on that
button by doing

def ignore(*args): # do nothing
return gtk.TRUE
window.connect( 'delete_event', ignore)

As far as I know this is controlled by the window

ie. in "icewm" you can change your preference file
to include / exclude any of the buttons in the title
bar that you want to.

I'm guessing you want to do this because of the
state that's left in your program if someone
closes it using the "X" instead of a close button?

I don't know about pyGtk but in PyQt you have
a "Close Event" signal that allows you to process
what ever you want when a user closes a window, how ever
the window is closed. PyQt also has a signal that's
emmitted from the main app window called "aboutToQui t"
which will close all open windows, thus processing your
close events for each window.

This would be the type of thing to look for in pyGtk.

Hi all, I am writing an application using pyGTK that has several pop-up dialogs that show and hide in succession. I would like to prevent the user from closing the dialog and if possible I'd like to use a "title bar-less" window with a normal border so the X is not even available to click. Is this possible? I have tried using window.set_decorated(FALSE) but this also removes the border making the window look quite strange.

Hello Everyone I have been playing a little with pyGTK and threading to come up with simple alert dialog which plays a sound in the background. The need for threading came when in the first version i made, the gui would freeze after clicking the close button until pygame finished playing the sound. In Windows it was acceptable because it could be ignored easily, but in

oForm.Close() vs this.Close() in a modal dialog. oFrom.Close() calls Form.Dispose() but this.Close() ,say in the click event of the Form, does not. I can think of the reason for this but is this documented and if so can someone give me the reference. And is this true for .net 1 and 2. Thanks

After considerable googling - I mean searching with Google(r) - I could not find javascript on a button or <a href=... to close a window in the latest versions of IE and FireFox. There seemed to be two techniques for earlier versions. But the window.opener='' ;window.close(); and the window.open('','_parent','') ;window.close(); techniques do not work for me. I.e., I still get confirmation message

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
