toggleActionIsActive in ToggleActionEntry not changed when user checks or unchecks menu item

Reported by: guest Owned by: axel

Component: general (Gtk+, Glib) Version: 0.9.12
Keywords: menu, toolbar,ToggleActionEntry Cc:


Using the package ghc682-gtk2hs - for Fedora 8, the field


is not changed when the user checks or unchecks a menu item.

data ToggleActionEntry = ToggleActionEntry {
toggleActionName :: String
toggleActionLabel :: String
toggleActionStockId :: (Maybe String)
toggleActionAccelerator :: (Maybe String)
toggleActionTooltip :: (Maybe String)
toggleActionCallback :: (IO ())
toggleActionIsActive :: Bool

There is a workaround, because the toggleActionCallback function does work when the user checks or unchecks an item. This can be used to set or unset an IORef. Example:

myTog :: IORef Bool -> IO ()
myTog chk = do old <- readIORef chk
               writeIORef chk (not old)


duptogg = ToggleActionEntry "DupCheck" "Check Data" (Just stockConvert) Nothing 
                             (Just "Check facts for duplicates") (myTog dupcheck) True

I don't quite understand what you're talking about and where the ToggleActionEntry data structure comes that you define above. Is this in the context of the SOE modules or Glade? This isn't anywhere in the Gtk modules.
