RCS/faq05.013.htp,v --> standard output revision 1.1 Title: 5.13. While calling get_property(), I get an "invalid property id" warning. Why? Last-Changed-Date: Fri Sep 19 19:49:33 2003 Last-Changed-Author: Christian Reis Last-Changed-Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Last-Changed-Remote-Host: manonegra.async.com.br Last-Changed-Remote-Address: 192.168.99.6 When using get_property(), you need to make sure the property you are using is not set as write-only. An example of such a property is GtkContainer::child, which isn't readable. The warning when trying to read it is something like: (:2640): Gtk-WARNING **: ../../gtk/gtkcontainer.c:874: invalid property id 3 for "child" of type `GParamObject' in `GtkButton' Pretty much all instances of write-only properties in GTK are ones that set some other property, but take a different format. For instance, setting the "markup" property on a gtk.CellRendererText object is equivalent to setting the "text" and "attributes" properties to appropriate values, however "markup" is not readable. The GtkContainer "child" property looks more like a convenience. Setting the property adds the widget to the container. However, GtkContainer can have multiple children, so it isn't clear what should be returned when reading it.
