"child"ReadThe child widget or None if there is no child.


gtk.Bin is an abstract base class defining a widget that is a container with just one child. It is useful for deriving subclasses, since it provides the common code needed for handling a single child widget. Many PyGTK widgets are subclasses of gtk.Bin, including gtk.Window, gtk.Button, gtk.Frame, gtk.HandleBox, and gtk.ScrolledWindow.



    def get_child()

Returns :

a reference to the child widget

The get_child() method returns a reference to the child of the bin, or None if the bin contains no child widget.
