This widget is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The gtk.FileChooserWidget is a widget suitable for selecting files. It is the main building block of a gtk.FileChooserDialog. Most applications will only need to use the latter; you can use gtk.FileChooserWidget as part of a larger window if you have special needs.

Note that gtk.FileChooserWidget does not have any methods, signals or properties of its own. Instead, you should use the methods, signals and properties of the gtk.FileChooser.


    gtk.FileChooserWidget(action=gtk.FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_OPEN, backend=None)

action :

The open or save mode for the widget or None.

backend :

The name of the specific filesystem backend to use or None.

Returns :

a new gtk.FileChooserWidget
