Method

Gtk.TextIter.editable

Declaration [src]

gboolean
gtk_text_iter_editable (
  const GtkTextIter* iter,
  gboolean default_setting
)

Description [src]

Returns whether the character at iter is within an editable region of text.

Non-editable text is “locked” and can’t be changed by the user via GtkTextView. If no tags applied to this text affect editability, default_setting will be returned.

You don’t want to use this function to decide whether text can be inserted at iter, because for insertion you don’t want to know whether the char at iter is inside an editable range, you want to know whether a new character inserted at iter would be inside an editable range. Use gtk_text_iter_can_insert() to handle this case.

Parameters

default_setting gboolean
 

TRUE if text is editable by default

Return value

Returns: gboolean

whether iter is inside an editable range
