Clutter::ChildMeta(3) Wrapper for actors inside a container


Clutter::ChildMeta is a wrapper object created by Clutter::Container implementations in order to store child-specific data and properties.

A Clutter::ChildMeta wraps a Clutter::Actor inside a Clutter::Container and it is used to store child properties that can later be accessed using Clutter::Container::child_set() and Clutter::Container::child_get().

See the Clutter::Container documentation on how to create ChildMeta objects when implementing a Container actor.




actor = $meta->get_actor

$meta->set_actor ($actor)

  • $actor (Clutter::Actor)

container = $meta->get_container

$meta->set_container ($container)

  • $container (Clutter::Container)


'actor' (Clutter::Actor : readable / writable / construct-only / private)

'container' (Clutter::Container : readable / writable / construct-only / private)
