Description Björn Lindqvist 2007-05-06 01:59:59 UTC
The manual page for GtkScrolledWindow ( does not explain very well what protocol a user defined widget must follow to be able to be added to a GtkScrolledWindow. The only thing the page says it must implement the set_scroll_adjustments_signal. That is not enough, a full specification of the protocol and an example is needed.

I think Ryan has a simple example...
Comment 2 Allison Karlitskaya (desrt) 2007-05-07 07:44:30 UTC
i don't.  i just had a normal (gigantic) widget that i put inside of a scrollwindow (or whatever it was called)
Comment 3 Daniel Boles 2017-08-07 14:38:32 UTC
This now only applies to GTK+ 2, as GTK+ 3 handles making a non-scrollable child scrollable for the user, so no one normally bothers implementing scrollability (GtkScrollable) themselves
Comment 4 Timm Bäder 2018-02-05 08:47:11 UTC
... and nobody adds documentation to gtk2 at this point, so closing this one.
