Signal Details

The "show-menu" signal

void                user_function                      (GtkMenuToolButton *button,
                                                        gpointer           user_data)      : Run First

The ::show-menu signal is emitted before the menu is shown.

It can be used to populate the menu on demand, using gtk_menu_tool_button_get_menu().

Note that even if you populate the menu dynamically in this way, you must set an empty menu on the GtkMenuToolButton beforehand, since the arrow is made insensitive if the menu is not set.

button :

the object on which the signal is emitted

user_data :

user data set when the signal handler was connected.
