PHP-GTK Community Site:
Add icons to GtkMenu
December 12, 2006 @ 08:56:00

On of the next steps up from building a regular menubar or toolbar in your PHP-GTK application is the addition of icons to help liven up the menus and help users quickly find what they want. This new tutorial on the PHP-GTK Community Site aims to help with just that.

When creating a soft, you'll often want to have a menu like in the majority of graphical softs. It's often clear in your mind but require more code than you want to do simple things using a plain GtkMenu. So here's a class to help you to quickly design such menus and will also allow you to display nice icon in your menus.

They start with a usage example before getting into the code of the class - a simple menu with a "file" and "help" top menus and under "file", "open" and "exit".

The complete code for the class is included in the post so it's a simple cut and paste away from being yours.
