get_toplevel


Description:

public weak Window get_toplevel ()

Gets the toplevel window that’s an ancestor of this.

Any window type but gdk_window_child is considered a toplevel window, as is a gdk_window_child window that has a root window as parent.

Note that you should use get_effective_toplevel when you want to get to a window’s toplevel as seen on screen, because get_toplevel will most likely not do what you expect if there are offscreen windows in the hierarchy.

Parameters:

this

a Window

Returns:

the toplevel window containing this
