Description

An AtkRelation describes a relation between an object and one or more other objects. The actual relations that an object has with other objects are defined as an AtkRelationSet, which is a set of AtkRelations.

Describes the type of the relation

ATK_RELATION_NULL
ATK_RELATION_CONTROLLED_BY Indicates an object controlled by one or more target objects.
ATK_RELATION_CONTROLLER_FOR Indicates an object is an controller for one or more target objects.
ATK_RELATION_LABEL_FOR Indicates an object is a label for one or more target objects.
ATK_RELATION_LABELLED_BY Indicates an object is labelled by one or more target objects.
ATK_RELATION_MEMBER_OF Indicates an object is a member of a group of one or more target objects.
ATK_RELATION_NODE_CHILD_OF Indicates an object is a cell in a treetable which is displayed because a cell in the same column is expanded and identifies that cell.
ATK_RELATION_FLOWS_TO Indicates that the object has content that flows logically to another AtkObject in a sequential way, (for instance text-flow).
ATK_RELATION_FLOWS_FROM Indicates that the object has content that flows logically from another AtkObject in a sequential way, (for instance text-flow).
ATK_RELATION_SUBWINDOW_OF Indicates a subwindow attached to a component but otherwise has no connection in the UI heirarchy to that component.
ATK_RELATION_EMBEDS Indicates that the object visually embeds another object's content, i.e. this object's content flows around another's content.
ATK_RELATION_EMBEDDED_BY Inverse of ATK_RELATION_EMBEDS, indicates that this object's content is visualy embedded in another object.
ATK_RELATION_POPUP_FOR Indicates that an object is a popup for another object.
ATK_RELATION_PARENT_WINDOW_OF Indicates that an object is a parent window of another object.
ATK_RELATION_LAST_DEFINED

atk_relation_type_register ()

AtkRelationType atk_relation_type_register  (const gchar *name);

atk_relation_type_for_name ()

AtkRelationType atk_relation_type_for_name  (const gchar *name);

Get the AtkRelationType type corresponding to a relation name.

name : a string which is the (non-localized) name of an ATK relation type.
Returns : the AtkRelationType enumerated type corresponding to the specified name, or ATK_RELATION_NULL if no matching relation type is found.

atk_relation_new ()
