Object hierarchy for Scrollbar


[ CCode ( type_id = "gtk_scrollbar_get_type ()" ) ]
public class Scrollbar : Widget, Accessible, Buildable, ConstraintTarget, Orientable

The Scrollbar widget is a horizontal or vertical scrollbar, depending on the value of the orientation property.

Its position and movement are controlled by the adjustment that is passed to or created by Scrollbar. See Adjustment for more details. The value field sets the position of the thumb and must be between lower and upper - page_size . The page_size represents the size of the visible scrollable area. The fields step_increment and page_increment fields are added to or subtracted from the value when the user asks to move by a step (using e.g. the cursor arrow keys) or by a page (using e.g. the Page Down/Up keys).

CSS nodes

╰── range[.fine-tune]
╰── trough
╰── slider
a main CSS node with name scrollbar and a subnode for its contents. The main node gets the .horizontal or .vertical style classes applied, depending on the scrollbar's orientation.

The range node gets the style class .fine-tune added when the scrollbar is in 'fine-tuning' mode.

Other style classes that may be added to scrollbars inside ScrolledWindow include the positional classes (.left, .right, .top, .bottom) and style classes related to overlay scrolling (.overlay-indicator, .dragging, .hovering).


GtkScrollbar uses the SCROLLBAR role.
