Gtkmozembed pango text

Hey,

I am trying to extract the text from Gtk::Dialog alerts generated by
gtkmozembed - for example; Javascript alerts, security warnings, etc.

However, after I retrieve the pango layout from the Gtk::Dialog and call
the
text method, it returns an empty string. Am I approaching this the wrong
way, or is it a bug?

I’ve included an example below - mozilla navigates to a https:// address
and
a security warning should pop up (as long as you haven’t disabled such
warnings in your mozilla config). I then set up a timer to check for
Gtk::Dialogs, from which I get a Pango::Layout.

Many thanks,

Andy.

#!/usr/bin/env ruby

require ‘gtkmozembed’

Gtk.init

gtk = Gtk::Window.new

Gtk::MozEmbed.set_profile_path(ENV[‘HOME’] + ‘/.mozilla’, ‘RubyGecko’)

moz = Gtk::MozEmbed.new
#moz.show

gtk.add(moz)
gtk.show_all

moz1.load_url(“https://mail.google.com/”)

Gtk::timeout_add(1000) {
obj = Gtk.current

if (obj.kind_of?(Gtk::Dialog))
    #puts obj.methods.grep(/pango/)
    ctx = obj.create_pango_layout

    puts "Title: #{obj.title}"
    puts "Text: #{ctx.text}"    # empty string

    false
else
    true
end

}
