A `GtkEditableLabel` is a label that allows users to edit the text by switching to an “edit mode”.

![An example GtkEditableLabel](editable-label.png)

`GtkEditableLabel` does not have API of its own, but it implements the [iface@Gtk.Editable] interface.

The default bindings for activating the edit mode is to click or press the Enter key. The default bindings for leaving the edit mode are the Enter key (to save the results) or the Escape key (to cancel the editing).

`GtkEditableLabel` has a main node with the name editablelabel. When the entry is in editing mode, it gets the .editing style class.

For all the subnodes added to the text node in various situations, see [class@Gtk.Text].
