Hiding a scroll bar

Hello,

I’m writing a application where I have a textview inside a
scrolledwindow. Is it possible to hide the vertical scrollbar?

I tried scrolledwindow.set_policy(Gtk::POLICY_NEVER) but then my
textview grows as the text grows. I want that my textview to behave like
it there was a scrollbar, I just want it invisible (the user can go up
and down in text with PageUp/Down).

I also tried scrolledwindow.vscrollbar.hide, but that doesn’t do
nothing.

Regards,

André

Use GtkWeidget#set_size_request.

scrolled_window = Gtk::ScrolledWindow.new

Ruby/GLib2 >= 0.17

scrolled_window.set_policy(:automatic, :never)

Ruby/GLib2 < 0.17

scrolled_window.set_policy(Gtk::POLICY_AUTOMATIC,

Gtk::POLICY_NEVER)

text_view = Gtk::TextView.new
text_view.set_size_request(200, 300)

scrolled_window.add(text_view)

Thanks,

Thank you very much for this info, this behavior was exactly what I was
looking for!

However… I need my text box to be resizeable. Is there any way I can
get this behavior wihtout using set_size_request on the text box?

Thank you in advance,

André

Is it good enough that resize top level window?
Could you show your example script?

Try to imagine a text editor such as Wordpad. If I use set_size_request
in the main textview, I won’t be able to resize my window by making it
smaller. Am I right?

What about text_view.set_size_request(0, 0)?

Could you show an example script that reproduces the
problem?

Oh, well, I just haven’t thought of that :slight_smile: I only thought of something
like text_view.set_size_request(400, 300).

Thank you very much for your direction and patience!
