Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240626
gtk_cell_renderer_text() can not reset alignment property from default
Last modified: 2008-05-06 15:36:37 EDT
Description of problem: "alignment" property on gtkcellrenderertext does not
work. It is in source after 2.10 but has no effect when using g_object_set() to
set the PANGO_ALIGN_RIGHT. This bug has been reported before but was passed of
to gtk.org, who did nothing to correct it. Since it is in the source for FC6
gtk this is a Fedora problem -- not a gtk.org one. Other properties for
cellrenderertext also do not work. This makes the newer list and tree functions
less than useful if you don't want all the columns to be left aligned.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gtk-2.10.4 as
distributed with FC6.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to right (or center) align text in any cell in gtk_tree_view_column using
g_object_set() (as directed in the Ref manual). as in:
g_object_set(G_OBJECT(cell1), "alignment", PANGO_ALIGN_RIGHT, NULL); //
compiles OK but does nothing
Actual results:makes no difference.
Expected results: expect text in cell to be right aligned.
Additional info: Hope this bug report does not get shuffled off to gtk.org.
Hope it gets fixed.
