[ CCode ( type_id = "gtk_combo_box_text_get_type ()" ) ]
public class ComboBoxText : ComboBox, Accessible, Buildable, CellEditable, CellLayout, ConstraintTarget

A `GtkComboBoxText` is a simple variant of `GtkComboBox` for text-only use cases.

![An example GtkComboBoxText](combo-box-text.png)

`GtkComboBoxText` hides the model-view complexity of `GtkComboBox`.

To create a `GtkComboBoxText`, use [ctor@Gtk.ComboBoxText.new] or [ctor@Gtk.ComboBoxText.new_with_entry].

You can add items to a `GtkComboBoxText` with [method@Gtk.ComboBoxText.append_text], [method@Gtk.ComboBoxText.insert_text] or [ method@Gtk.ComboBoxText.prepend_text] and remove options with [method@Gtk.ComboBoxText.remove].

If the `GtkComboBoxText` contains an entry (via the [property@Gtk.ComboBox:has-entry] property), its contents can be retrieved using [ method@Gtk.ComboBoxText.get_active_text].

You should not call [method@Gtk.ComboBox.set_model] or attempt to pack more cells into this combo box via its [interface@Gtk.CellLayout] interface.

GtkComboBoxText as GtkBuildable

The `GtkComboBoxText` implementation of the `GtkBuildable` interface supports adding items directly using the <items> element and specifying <item> elements for each item. Each <item> element can specify the “id” corresponding to the appended text and also supports the regular translation attributes “translatable”, “context” and “comments”.

Here is a UI definition fragment specifying `GtkComboBoxText` items: ```xml <object class="GtkComboBoxText"> <items> <item translatable="yes" id="factory">Factory</item> <item translatable="yes" id="home">Home</item> <item translatable="yes" id="subway">Subway</item> </items> </object> ```

CSS nodes

``` combobox ╰── box.linked ├── entry.combo ├── button.combo ╰── window.popup ```

`GtkComboBoxText` has a single CSS node with name combobox. It adds the style class .combo to the main CSS nodes of its entry and button children, and the .linked class to the node of its internal box.
