public class LinkButton : Button, Accessible, Actionable, Buildable, ConstraintTarget

A GtkLinkButton is a Button with a hyperlink, similar to the one used by web browsers, which triggers an action when clicked.

It is useful to show quick links to resources.

A link button is created by calling either LinkButton or LinkButton.with_label. If using the former, the URI you pass to the constructor is used as a label for the widget.

The URI bound to a GtkLinkButton can be set specifically using set_uri, and retrieved using get_uri.

By default, GtkLinkButton calls show_uri when the button is clicked. This behaviour can be overridden by connecting to the activate_link signal and returning true from the signal handler.

CSS nodes

GtkLinkButton has a single CSS node with name button. To differentiate it from a plain Button , it gets the .link style class.


GtkLinkButton uses the BUTTON role.
