Gtk2::Ex::Dashes::MenuItem -- menu item showing a row of dashes
use Gtk2::Ex::Dashes::MenuItem; my $item = Gtk2::Ex::Dashes::MenuItem->new; $menu->append ($item);
Gtk2::Ex::Dashes::MenuItem is a subclass of
Gtk2::Widget Gtk2::Container Gtk2::Bin Gtk2::Item Gtk2::MenuItem Gtk2::Ex::Dashes::MenuItem
Gtk2::Ex::Dashes::MenuItem displays a line of dashes similar in appearance to a
Gtk2::TearoffMenuItem, but as a plain menu item, not driving the tearoff state.

Clicking on the item runs the MenuItem
activate handler etc in the usual way. Connect to that signal to run an action for the item. The idea is you can open a dialog box or toplevel toolbox representing the menu contents, with more things or more features than just a torn-off menu would provide.
$item = Gtk2::Ex::Dashes::MenuItem->new (key=>value,...)
Create and return a new
Dashes::MenuItem widget. Optional key/value pairs can be given to set initial properties, as per
For example setting the
visible property saves the usual
$item->show needed before adding to a menu.
my $item = Gtk2::Ex::Dashes::MenuItem->new (visible => 1);
There are properties beyond what
The widget text direction (ie.
set_direction) on the
Dashes::MenuItem controls which end the dashes start from. The effect of this is that a whole dash begins from the same end as the text (left to right or right to left).
