End of Life and GDPR

If you're reading the 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.


Call Function Within Class Using Gtk::timeout_add();

Calling a function on a repetitive basis is simple enough using something like:
Gtk::timeout_add(200, 'subtract'); //call subtract() 5 times per second

However, how would I call subtract() if it is within a class? Example:

class CoolClass {
$clickInt = 0;
subtract() {

/* //I don't want to call the class function like this, or do I need to?
function subtract() {
    global $coolClassInstance;
    return true;

$coolClassInstance = new CoolClass();

$timeoutID = Gtk::timeout_add(200, 'subtract'); //how to call $coolClassInstance->subtract()?


Thanks much for the help :)

with an array

You use an array to pass the reference of the class, and the name of the method to call. PHP-GTK takes care of the rest.

= Gtk::timeout_add(200, array($coolClassInstance, 'subtract'));

Thank you much for the

Thank you much for the clarification. It works great! Also thank you "Fosfor" and you on the #php-gtk irc chat channel for initial discussion on this topic.
