Hi Erik,

For (1), I would use the call 'g_object_set'. Currently, in the standard configfile this is defined as:


In your case, you need to redefine it as follows: gtk_server_redefine(g_object_set, NONE, NONE, 4, WIDGET, STRING, FLOAT, NULL)

From here, you should be able to set the x-alignment as follows: g_object_set(CellRendererID, "xalign", 1.0, NULL)

For (2), this seems a question which is more related to GTK, than it is related to GTK-server. Nevertheless it would be interesting to see if there is a possibility in GTK at all to limit the amount of decimals. Probably this can be done with a GLIB call.

But you can always format the float number in the client program, and then let it print by GTK.

Best regards

Don't worry about activity since I've got some more questions lined up :-) (I have to Google some more but I'm wondering how to set properties[1] and how to change the formatting of a GtkTreeView cell [2].)

Also, excuse me for the retarded quoting but I'm subscribed to the list in digest mode (by choice).


[1] I want to change the align the numbers in a cell to the right and so far I've found out I can do that by setting a cell renderer's "x-align" attribute to 1.0 if I remember correctly. However, adding the function g_object_set_property to the config file wasn't enough.

[2] I want to limit the printed decimals to two instead of the six or seven that are printed at the moment.
