Description:

[ Version ( deprecated = true , deprecated_since = "3.10" ) ]
public interface Activatable : Object

Warning: Activatable is deprecated since "3.10".

Activatable widgets can be connected to a Action and reflects the state of its action.

A Activatable can also provide feedback through its action, as they are responsible for activating their related actions.

Implementing GtkActivatable

When extending a class that is already Activatable; it is only necessary to implement the Activatable->sync_action_properties and Activatable-> update methods and chain up to the parent implementation, however when introducing a new Activatable class; the related_action and use_action_appearance properties need to be handled by the implementor. Handling these properties is mostly a matter of installing the action pointer and boolean flag on your instance, and calling do_set_related_action and sync_action_properties at the appropriate times.
