61 GtkRadioMenuItem

A choice from multiple check menu items

61.1 Overview

A radio menu item is a check menu item that belongs to a group. At each instant exactly one of the radio menu items from a group is selected.

The group list does not need to be freed, as each <gtk-radio-menu-item> will remove itself and its list item when it is destroyed.

The correct way to create a group of radio menu items is approximatively this:

     GSList *group = NULL;
     GtkWidget *item;
     gint i;
     for (i = 0; i < 5; i++)
       item = gtk_radio_menu_item_new_with_label (group, "This is an example");
       group = gtk_radio_menu_item_get_group (GTK_RADIO_MENU_ITEM (item));
       if (i == 1)
         gtk_check_menu_item_set_active (GTK_CHECK_MENU_ITEM (item), TRUE);

Creates a new <gtk-radio-menu-item>.

the group to which the radio menu item is to be attached
a new <gtk-radio-menu-item>
— Function: gtk-radio-menu-item-new-with-label (group <gtk-radio-group*>) (label mchars) ⇒  (ret <gtk-widget>)

Creates a new <gtk-radio-menu-item> whose child is a simple <gtk-label>.

the group to which the radio menu item is to be attached
the text for the label
a new <gtk-radio-menu-item>
— Function: gtk-radio-menu-item-new-from-widget (group <gtk-radio-menu-item>) ⇒  (ret <gtk-widget>)

Creates a new <gtk-radio-menu-item> adding it to the same group as group.

An existing <gtk-radio-menu-item>
The new <gtk-radio-menu-item>
