[PyGTK] forbid focus of TreeView columns

Hi all,

I'm building a PyGTK interface in which I would like that no widget
would be able to get the focus (and so to be activated by pressing the
Return key). For this purpose, for each widget, I do:

widget.set_prop erty("can-focus", gtk.FALSE)

My problem is a TreeView which has a clickable column, it get the
default focus and I did not find how to forbid that.

I tried:

def focus (widget, *args) :
try :
widget.set_prop erty("can-focus", gtk.FALSE)
except :
try :
widget.set_prop erty("can-default", gtk.FALSE)
except :
win.forall(focu s)

where win is my application window (I also tried on the TreeView) but it
doesn't work. :-(
I also tried with widget.unset_fl ags, same result. :-((

If I choose another widget and give it the default focus
(widget.grab_de fault and widget.grab_foc us) it's OK until I click on the
column which then keeps the focus. :-(((

I'm sure I could capture the Return key but I don't want to have this
dashed line around the focused widget...

I think that this column has somewhere an associated widget but I could
not find it anywhere (and neither could win.forall).

I'm using PyGTK-2.0.0 and cannot use another version.

Thanks in advance for any idea!

I tried to create a windows executable of a pygtk program. My first attempt worked, kinda, except that no themes were applied and no readable fonts were found by pango; so all letters where just empty squares. But the program worked.

Good morning. I have recently begun a project using PyGTK, and part of my planned interface has a gtk.TreeView showing a portion of the filesystem. Now, rather than load the entire FS structure into the tree right from the beginning, I made a lazy tree by adding blank children to rows representing directories, and connected a call to fill in the data when a row with blank children was expanded. Now, this works all fine and well, in...

Hi folks, I'm currently trying to work out how to detect when a PyGTK window receives the focus from the window manager -- I assume that it must receive some kind of X event, but I can't work out which signal it generates. Searching around the subject on the web doesn't seem to pull up anything useful. I tried the "focus" signal, but that doesn't work the way I'd like it to. For example, the following code only prints the message...

Hi, I am just testing pygtk/glade out and wonder, if I am able to change the keybindings. E.g. the treeview searches by default for the entries beginning with the typed keystroke; moving to the next row works as usual with the Down key. Now I would like to change the key bindings to e.g. 'j' to move to the next row (just like in vim) and to use a 'Ctrl' key combination to search for a certain word beginning with the typed key stroke.

Ey all, I'm currently working on an application that uses the pygtk libraries to create windows and widgets. I have a HBOX (2 boxes) in the middle and in the left one I have a treeview, in the right the rest (drawingarea, entries, labels, notebooks, ...). But, as usual, the big hbox is divided exactly in the middle and I was wondering if it is possible to make sure that the left hbox doesn't use more then an amount of pixels. I tried looking...

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,...
