PHP-GTK.eu End of Life and GDPR

If you're reading the PHP-GTK.eu community site these days, you certainly noticed that not a single piece of significant content was created since 2015, and not much since 2013.

Whatever this may mean for PHP-GTK itself is another issue, but for the site itself, it means it ceased to be relevant about 5 years ago, and it's time to move on for the site members. Since the site contains non-anonymous user, it will fall under the new EU GDPR regulations entering into force on 2018-05-25, and there is no point for me to spend time on evolving the site towards compliance when no one is actually using it.

So here is the EOL announcement: the site will be shutting down on 2018-05-24 and its data will taken offline.

A static version of the articles may be published again at some point here or elsewhere, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it. So if you have even some interest in the site content, be sure to copy/paste the pages of interest before it goes dark on 2018-05-24. Or contact me if you want a copy of the files and content, or check my blog for newer content.

Thanks all for participating, it's been a pleasure while it lasted.

GtkLabel

ScrollingLabel - a funny label widget with scrolling capabilities

ScrollingLabel widget demo ScrollingLabel is a dynamic label which scrolls from all sides when the parent widget is not large enough. This widget can be used when you need to build very compact interfaces and display long strings of information.

GtkClock : a clockwork GtkLabel

This small example show how to extend a widget to add a dynamic behaviour, in this case an enhanced GtkLabel displaying the current time without program intervention.
