Gtk2::Ex::History::Action -- Gtk2::Action to go back or forward in a history
use Gtk2::Ex::History::Action; my $action = Gtk2::Ex::History::Action->new (name => 'ForwardInHistory', way => 'forward', history => $my_history); $actiongroup->add_action_with_accel ($action, '<Ctrl><Shift>F');
Gtk2::Ex::History::Action is a subclass of
Gtk2::Widget Gtk2::Action Gtk2::Ex::History::Action
Gtk2::Ex::History::Action invokes either
forward on a given
Gtk2::Ex::History. The "stock" icon and tooltip follow the direction. The action is insensitive when the history is empty.
When the action is used on a toolbar button a mouse button-3 handler is added to popup
If you're not using UIManager and its actions system then see Gtk2::Ex::History::Button for similar button-3 behaviour.
There's no accelerator keys offered as yet. "B" and "F" would be natural, but would depend what other things are in the UIManager and whether letters should be reserved for text entry etc, or are available as accelerators. Control-B and Control-F aren't good choices if using a text entry as they're cursor movement in the Emacs style /usr/share/themes/Emacs/gtk-2.0-key/gtkrc.
$action = Gtk2::Ex::History::Action->new (key => value, ...)
Create and return a new action object. Optional key/value pairs set initial properties per
history property is what to act on, and
way for back or forward. The usual action
name property should be set to identify it in a UIManager or similar. The name can be anything desired. Just "Back" and "Forward" are good, or something more to distinguish it from other actions.
my $action = Gtk2::Ex::History::Action->new (name => 'ForwardHistory', way => 'forward', history => $history);
The history object to act on.
Gtk2::Ex::History::Way, default 'back')
