I've back-ported 19 GTK2.0 macros and functions on top of GTK1.2 to be
used instead of their GTK1.2 equivalents. I've updated our sources to
use the GTK2-style macros instead of the GTK1.2 ones. Everything still
compiles and works, mainly because these changes are merely cosmetic, at
least for now.
To anyone doing Unix dialog work: use the GTK2 macros instead of the
GTK1.2 ones in the future and make sure to #include
"xap_UnixDialogHelper.h". If you find yourself using [GTK_OBJECT,
GtkObject, gtk_object, gtk_signal, gtk_type] use [G_OBJECT, GObject,
g_object, g_signal, g_type] instead. It will make all of our futures
easier, and it will work on both GTK2 and GTK1.2, at least for now.
Note that you *DO NOT* need GTK2 to work on Abi at the moment. You just
need GTK+ 1.2.x. This checkin is here to help make us all aware of the
change and get me started on converting all of our sources to use GTK2 -
and make it easier for others to start, too. Abi as a whole cannot
compile against GTK2 yet, but this checkin removes a large hurdle in our
If someone decides to further work on the GTK2 port, you'll need to
comment out those 19 or so lines so that the real GTK2 functions and
macros get used.
Nearly every gtk+ && gnome .cpp file was touched by this commit,
including plugin code. Exception - some parts of abiwidget.cpp
I don't think that this change broke any plugins. I can only hope :)
I don't plan on doing any more GTK2 work for at least another 3-4 weeks
or so, until I refactor a good chunk of the codebase. We may or may not
want to make a compatibility layer for GTK1.2 based on my existing work
when we do our GTK2/GNOME2 port. That much remains to be seen.
/hoping the GTK2/GNOME2 port won't be a *huge* pain in the ass/
