A Assistant is a widget used to represent a generally complex operation split up into several steps.

Each step consists of one or more pages. GtkAssistant guides the user through the pages, and controls the page flow to collect the data needed for the operation.

GtkAssistant handles which buttons to show and to make sensitive based on page sequence knowledge and the type of each page in addition to state information like the completion and committed page statuses.

If you have a case that doesn’t quite fit in Assistants way of handling buttons, you can use the CUSTOM page type and handle buttons yourself.

GtkAssistant maintains a AssistantPage object for each added child, which holds additional per-child properties. You obtain the AssistantPage for a child with get_page.

GtkAssistant as GtkBuildable

The GtkAssistant implementation of the Buildable interface exposes the action_area as internal children with the name “action_area”.

To add pages to an assistant in Builder, simply add it as a child to the GtkAssistant object. If you need to set per-object properties, create a AssistantPage object explicitly, and set the child widget as a property on it.

CSS nodes

GtkAssistant has a single CSS node with the name window and style class .assistant.
