You just make Gtk2::GladeXML::Simple your application's base class, have your C call C, and the module will do the tedious and dirty work for you. Gtk2::GladeXML::Simple offers: =over =item * Signal handler callbacks as methods of your class. sub on_button1_clicked { my $self = shift; # $self always received as first parameter ... # do anything you want in a OO fashioned way } =item * Autoconnection of signal handlers. =item * Autocalling of creation functions for custom widgets. =item * Access to the widgets as instance attributes. my $btn = $self->{button1}; # fetch widgets as instance attributes by their names my $window = $self->{main_window}; my $custom = $self->{custom_widget}; =back =head1 METHODS This class provides the following public methods: =over =item new( $gladefile I<[, $root, $domain ]> ); This method creates a new object of your subclass of Gtk2::GladeXML::Simple. The C<$gladefile> parameter is the name of the file created by the Glade Visual Editor. The C<$root> is an optional parameter that tells C the name of the widget to start building from. The optional C<$domain> parameter that specifies the translation domain for the glade xml file ( undef by default ). =item glade_object This method returns the Gtk2::GladeXML object in play. =item get_widget( $widget_name ) Returns the widget with given name. Same as calling $self->{$widget_name}. =item get_widgets Returns a list with all the widgets in the glade file. =item run Call this method in order to run your application. If you need another event loop rather than the Gtk one, override I in your class with your event loop (for example the GStreamer event loop). =back =head1 EXTENDED EXAMPLE This example shows the usage of the module by creating a small Yahoo search engine using WWW::Search::Yahoo. package YahooApp; use strict; use warnings; use Gtk2 '-init'; use Gtk2::Html2; #not part of the Gtk2 core widgets use Gtk2::GladeXML::Simple; use WWW::Search; use base qw( Gtk2::GladeXML::Simple ); my $header =<
Yahoo Gtk2 App

Found:

HEADER my $footer =< FOOTER sub new { my $class = shift; #Calling our super class constructor my $self = $class->SUPER::new( 'yahoo.glade' ); #Initialize the search engine $self->{_yahoo} = WWW::Search->new( 'Yahoo' ); return $self; } sub do_search { my $self = shift; $self->{_yahoo}->native_query( shift ); my $buf = $header; for( 1..10 ) { my $rv = $self->{_yahoo}->next_result || last; $buf .= qq{

} . $rv->title; $buf .= qq{

} . $rv->description; $buf .= qq{

} . $rv->url . q{


}; } $buf .= $footer; $self->{buf} = $buf; } ### Signal handlers, now they're methods of the class ### sub on_Clear_clicked { my $self = shift; my $html = $self->{custom1}; #fetch widgets by their names $html->{document}->clear; my $statusbar = $self->{statusbar1}; #another widget $statusbar->pop( $statusbar->get_context_id( "Yahoo" ) ); } sub on_Search_clicked { my $self = shift; my $text = $self->{text_entry}->get_text; return unless $text ne ''; my $statusbar = $self->{statusbar1}; $statusbar->push( $statusbar->get_context_id( "Yahoo" ), "Searching for: $text" ); $self->do_search( $text ); my $html = $self->{custom1}; $html->{document}->clear; $html->{document}->open_stream( "text/html" ); $html->{document}->write_stream( $self->{buf} ); $html->{document}->close_stream; } ### Creation function for the custom widget, method of the class as well ### sub create_htmlview { my $self = shift; my $view = Gtk2::Html2::View->new; my $document = Gtk2::Html2::Document->new; $view->set_document( $document ); $view->{document} = $document; $view->show_all; return $view; } sub gtk_main_quit { Gtk2->main_quit } 1; package main; YahooApp->new->run; #Go! 1; The I file needed for this example is in the I directory, along with other example programs. =head1 UTILITIES =head2 Rapid Application Development with I The Gtk2::GladeXML::Simple distribution includes I, a program that generates Perl code stubs from glade XML files. The code stubs include the basic framework for Gtk2::GladeXML::Simple interaction, method signatures, and everything that describes the application itself. Developers must fill in the code stubs to add the correct functionality to the application. =head1 SEE ALSO L, L, L The Libglade Reference Manual at L The gtk2 API Reference at L =head1 TODO Tests. More examples? Add Gtk2::GladeXML::Simple::new_from_buffer()?
