public Requisition size_request ()

Warning: size_request is deprecated since 3.0.

This function is typically used when implementing a Container subclass.


Use get_preferred_size instead.

Obtains the preferred size of a widget. The container uses this information to arrange its child widgets and decide what size allocations to give them with size_allocate.

You can also call this function from an application, with some caveats. Most notably, getting a size request requires the widget to be associated with a screen, because font information may be needed. Multihead-aware applications should keep this in mind.

Also remember that the size request is not necessarily the size a widget will actually be allocated.
