Thanks to Stephane for his answer to my query about using GtkBuilder in IronPython. It turns out his Gtk#Beans package provides the magic sauce that is currently missing from
gtk# trunk the current stable release.
For completeness, here's the code I sent him that accomplishes the same thing using the older Glade.XML object for those that are interested. It answers a long standing mailing list question about using Glade.XML.Autoconnect in IronPython.
import clr clr.AddReference('gtk-sharp') clr.AddReference('glade-sharp') import Gtk import Glade def PyGladeAutoconnect(gxml, target): def _connect(handler_name, event_obj, signal_name, *args): name = ''.join([frag.title() for frag in signal_name.split('_')]) event = getattr(event_obj, name) event += getattr(target, handler_name) # add all widgets for widget in gxml.GetWidgetPrefix(''): setattr(target, gxml.GetWidgetName(widget), widget) # connect all signals gxml.SignalAutoconnectFull(_connect) class Application: def __init__(self): gxml = Glade.XML("test.glade", "window1", None) PyGladeAutoconnect(gxml, self) # window1 comes from glade file self.window1.ShowAll() def onWindowDelete(self, o, args): # connected via glade file definition Gtk.Application.Quit() Gtk.Application.Init() app = Application() Gtk.Application.Run()
