NAME ^

Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::ErrorMsg - Provides a simple error message dialog.

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::ErrorMsg ( destroy_with_parent => TRUE,
                                   modal => TRUE,
                                   no_separator => FALSE );

 # do some stuff like creating your app's main $window then,
 # to ensure that all messages use the right parent, set it:
 $Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::ErrorMsg::parent_window = $window;

 # now popup a new dialog ( blocking the main loop if there is one )
 new_and_run Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::ErrorMsg ( "Simple error message." );

 # now popup a somwhat useful dialog that doesn't block any main loop
 # but on the other side of the coin, if there is no main loop the
 # dialog will be completely unresponsive.
 new_and_show Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::ErrorMsg ( "Use when there is a main loop." );

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides a simple dialog api that wraps Gtk2::Dialog objectively. The objective is a clean and simple message dialog (only an "OK" button).

OPTIONS ^

All public methods (and the entire class) support the following options:

title => STRING

The title of the dialog window. Defaults to "Error".

text => STRING

The text to be displayed. This is the core purpose of the module and is the only mandatory argument.

icon => /path/to/image || stock-id || Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf || Gtk2::Image

The dialog-sized image to place to the left of the text. Note: there are five aliased stock-ids which correspond to the five gtk-dialog-* ids, "warning", "question", "info", "error" and "authentication". Defaults to the stock-id of "gtk-dialog-error".

parent_window => Gtk2::Window

Reference to the main application window.

destroy_with_parent => BOOL

When the parent_window is destroyed, what do we do? Defaults to FALSE.

modal => BOOL

Does this message make the parent_window freeze while the message exists. Defaults to FALSE.

no_separator => BOOL

Draw the horizontal separator between the content area and the button area below. Defaults to FALSE.

PUBLIC METHODS ^

OBJECT = new ( OPTIONS | STRING )

Create a new Gtk2::Dialog with only an "OK" button, some text and an optional icon to the left of the text. The icon can be any of the following: a stock-id string, a Gtk2::Image, Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf or the full path to an image. Return a Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::ErrorMsg object. In the special case of being passed only one argument, all options are set to defaults and the one argument is used as the text option.

new_and_run ( OPTIONS | STRING )

Supports all the same arguments as new(). This will create a new Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message, show_all(), run() and then destroy the dialog immediately.

new_and_show ( OPTIONS )

Supports all the same arguments as new(). This will create a new Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message, show_all() and process any pending gtk events. This functionality is only of any practical use when the is a Gtk2 main loop running. If there is no main loop running the dialog will be visible but completely unresponsive to the end-user.
