Description Jan Pazdziora 2010-05-26 09:30:08 UTC
Created attachment 416728 [details]
Test script to show DeprecationWarning

Description of problem:

I have a code which tries to prevent line wrap by calling


on RHEL 6, and pygtk2 (?) complains about the call being deprecated. Using set_property does not help either.

Colleagues at #desktop say that it is not marked as deprecated in C API, so I believe it should not be in python either.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

# rpm -q pygtk2

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the attached script with python.
Actual results:

/tmp/test_wrap.py:11: DeprecationWarning: use set_markup() instead
/tmp/test_wrap.py:12: DeprecationWarning: use set_markup() instead

Expected results:

No DeprecationWarnings.

I can avoid the set_use_markup by using

 is not reflowed, so every even line is very short because it just has those ends.
-dialog = gtk.MessageDialog(None, 0, gtk.MESSAGE_WARNING, gtk.BUTTONS_OK, text)
+dialog = gtk.MessageDialog(None, 0, gtk.MESSAGE_WARNING, gtk.BUTTONS_OK)
 dialog.set_position (gtk.WIN_POS_CENTER)
 dialog.show_all ()

(is that equivalent?) but what do I use instead of that set_line_wrap if I wanted to get rid of that call?

Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2010-06-08 20:28:12 UTC
The deprecation warning is coming from your accessing "dialog.label", which is supposed to be private.  See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=309180.

GtkMessageDialog is rather restrictive in what it will let you do with the labels.  You would probably be better off constructing an equivalent window out of GtkDialog, where you'd have full access to the label.

Closing this as NOTABUG since the deprecation is intentional.

Alright. How do I achieve the set_line_wrap equivalent then?

Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2010-06-14 10:25:34 UTC
As I said, build your own GtkDialog.
