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.

Drag and Drop: watch out for the GtkSelectionData::set_text() contents

Hello,

A few days ago I was confronted with a weird trouble. That my string that I used which has some typical french characters in it changed to ugly thing like \u009 instead of é. I also discovered that other people who used the serialize() function on GtkSelectionData also encountered some weird things.

So today I found the solution the GtkSelectiondata object works with URI strings. All you have to do is encode your string with the function urlencode($your_string);.

PHP-GTK on Vista Memory Issue

Callback function and object oriented php style

Dear Php-Gtk user and believers,

Yesterday I found something out about php-gtk and object oriented stuff and I guess a lot of people will come to the same trouble : when you connect signals from your class you have to watch out e.g.

<?php
$treeview
->connect('drag-data-received', array($this,'on_drop'));
?>
  • $this without ' ' means the instance of the class
  • '$this' so with quotes it means the class itself
