Description

This class is the primary class for accessibility support via the Accessibility ToolKit (ATK). Objects which are instances of AtkObject (or instances of AtkObject-derived types) are queried for properties which relate basic (and generic) properties of a UI component such as name and description. Instances of AtkObject may also be queried as to whether they implement other ATK interfaces (e.g. AtkAction, AtkComponent, etc.), as appropriate to the role which a given UI component plays in a user interface.

All UI components in an application which provide useful information or services to the user must provide corresponding AtkObject instances on request (in GTK+, for instance, usually on a call to #gtk_widget_get_accessible()), either via ATK support built into the toolkit for the widget class or ancestor class, or in the case of custom widgets, if the inherited AtkObject implementation is insufficient, via instances of a new AtkObject subclass.

atk_role_register ()

AtkRole     atk_role_register               (const gchar *name);

Registers the role specified by name.

name : a character string describing the new role.
Returns : an AtkRole for the new role.

enum AtkLayer

typedef enum
{
  ATK_LAYER_INVALID,
  ATK_LAYER_BACKGROUND,
  ATK_LAYER_CANVAS,
  ATK_LAYER_WIDGET,
  ATK_LAYER_MDI,
  ATK_LAYER_POPUP,
  ATK_LAYER_OVERLAY,
  ATK_LAYER_WINDOW
} AtkLayer;

Describes the layer of a component

These enumerated "layer values" are used when determining which UI rendering layer a component is drawn into, which can help in making determinations of when components occlude one another.

ATK_LAYER_INVALID The object does not have a layer
ATK_LAYER_BACKGROUND This layer is reserved for the desktop background
ATK_LAYER_CANVAS This layer is used for Canvas components
ATK_LAYER_WIDGET This layer is normally used for components
ATK_LAYER_MDI This layer is used for layered components
ATK_LAYER_POPUP This layer is used for popup components, such as menus
ATK_LAYER_OVERLAY This layer is reserved for future use.
ATK_LAYER_WINDOW This layer is used for toplevel windows.

AtkImplementor

typedef struct _AtkImplementor AtkImplementor;

The AtkImplementor structure does not contain any fields.


AtkPropertyValues

typedef struct {
  const gchar  *property_name;
  GValue old_value;
  GValue new_value;
} AtkPropertyValues;

The Atk PropertyValue structure is used when notifying a change in property. Currently, the only property for which old_value is used is accessible-state; for instance if there is a focus change the property change handler will be called for the object which lost the focus with the old_value containing the AtkState value corresponding to focused and the property change handler will be called for the object which received the focus with the new_value containing the AtkState value corresponding to focused.


AtkFunction ()

gboolean    (*AtkFunction)                  (gpointer data);

An AtkFunction is a function definition used for padding which has been added to class and interface structures to allow for expansion in the future.
