Changing the application name of a GtkAboutDialog in PHP-GTK2

By admin | August 17, 2008

For those of you who have never heard of it, a GtkAboutDialog is a convience GtkDialog to display application credits. However, the documentation (archive at 2008-08-17) for it does not specify a way to change the application’s name, and as a result ends up using the script name for the application, which is very ugly and unprofessional.

To change the application name, use the undocumented function GtkAboutDialog::set_name() to change the name. Here is an example:


<?php
$dialog
= new GtkAboutDialog();
$copy = "(C) Copyright 2008 Example.";
$license = "GNU GPL Text would go here";
$web = "http://www.example.com/";
$version = "Version 1.0";
$prog = "YourExampleProg";
$desc = "A sample program to demonstrate the use of GtkAboutDialog";
$dialog->set_copyright($copy);
$dialog->set_license($license);
$dialog->set_website($web);
$dialog->set_version($version);
$dialog->set_name($prog); // Use this line to set app name
$dialog->set_comments($desc);
$dialog->run();
$dialog->hide();
?>
