Description:

public class RecentChooserDialog : Dialog, Implementor, Buildable, RecentChooser

RecentChooserDialog is a dialog box suitable for displaying the recently used documents.

This widgets works by putting a RecentChooserWidget inside a Dialog. It exposes the RecentChooser interface, so you can use all the RecentChooser functions on the recent chooser dialog as well as those for Dialog.

Note that RecentChooserDialog does not have any methods of its own. Instead, you should use the functions that work on a RecentChooser.

Typical usage

In the simplest of cases, you can use the following code to use a RecentChooserDialog to select a recently used file:

GtkWidget *dialog;
gint res;

dialog = gtk_recent_chooser_dialog_new ("Recent Documents",
parent_window,
_("_Cancel"),
GTK_RESPONSE_CANCEL,
_("_Open"),
GTK_RESPONSE_ACCEPT,
NULL);

res = gtk_dialog_run (GTK_DIALOG (dialog));
if (res == GTK_RESPONSE_ACCEPT)
{
GtkRecentInfo *info;
GtkRecentChooser *chooser = GTK_RECENT_CHOOSER (dialog);

info = gtk_recent_chooser_get_current_item (chooser);
open_file (gtk_recent_info_get_uri (info));
gtk_recent_info_unref (info);
}

gtk_widget_destroy (dialog);

Recently used files are supported since GTK+ 2.10.

GtkRecentChooserDialog

Example: RecentChooserDialog:

public class Application : Gtk.Window {
public Application () {
// Prepare Gtk.Window:
this.title = "My Gtk.RecentChooserDialog";
this.window_position = Gtk.WindowPosition.CENTER;
this.destroy.connect (Gtk.main_quit);
this.set_default_size (500, 500);

// The RecentChooserDialog:
Gtk.RecentChooserDialog chooser = new Gtk.RecentChooserDialog (
"Select your favorite file", this,
"_Cancel",
Gtk.ResponseType.CANCEL,
"_Open",
Gtk.ResponseType.OK);

// Process response:
if (chooser.run () == Gtk.ResponseType.OK) {
string uri = chooser.get_current_uri ();
print ("%s\n", uri);
}

// Close the RecentChooserDialog:
chooser.close ();
}

public static int main (string[] args) {
Gtk.init (ref args);

Application app = new Application ();
app.show_all ();
Gtk.main ();
return 0;
}
}
