This class is the primary class for accessibility support via the Accessibility ToolKit (ATK). Objects which are instances of AtkObject (or instances of AtkObject-derived types) are queried for properties which relate basic (and generic) properties of a UI component such as name and description. Instances of AtkObject may also be queried as to whether they implement other ATK interfaces (e.g. gtk.Action, AtkComponent, etc.), as appropriate to the role which a given UI component plays in a user interface.
All UI components in an application which provide useful information or services to the user must provide corresponding AtkObject instances on request (in GTK+, for instance, usually on a call to gtk_widget_get_accessible ()), either via ATK support built into the toolkit for the widget class or ancestor class, or in the case of custom widgets, if the inherited AtkObject implementation is insufficient, via instances of a new AtkObject subclass.
Sets our main struct and passes it to the parent class.
The "active-descendant-changed" signal is emitted by an object which has the state ATK_STATE_MANAGES_DESCENDANTS when the focus object in the object changes. For instance, a table will emit the signal when the cell in the table which has focus changes.
The signal "children-changed" is emitted when a child is added or removed form an object. It supports two details: "add" and "remove"
The signal "focus-event" is emitted when an object gained or lost focus.
The signal "property-change" is emitted when an object's property value changes. arg1 contains an AtkPropertyValues with the name and the new value of the property whose value has changed. Note that, as with GObject notify, getting this signal does not guarantee that the value of the property has actually changed; it may also be emitted when the setter of the property is called to reinstate the previous value.
The "state-change" signal is emitted when an object's state changes. The detail value identifies the state type which has changed.
The "visible-data-changed" signal is emitted when the visual appearance of the object changed.
Adds a relationship of the specified type with the specified target.
Calls handler on property changes.
Gets the accessible id of the accessible.
Get a list of properties applied to this object as a whole, as an AtkAttributeSet consisting of name-value pairs. As such these attributes may be considered weakly-typed properties or annotations, as distinct from strongly-typed object data available via other get/set methods. Not all objects have explicit "name-value pair" AtkAttributeSet properties.
Gets the accessible description of the accessible.
Gets the 0-based index of this accessible in its parent; returns -1 if the accessible does not have an accessible parent.
Gets the layer of the accessible.
Gets the zorder of the accessible. The value G_MININT will be returned if the layer of the accessible is not ATK_LAYER_MDI.
Gets the number of accessible children of the accessible.
Gets the accessible name of the accessible.
Get the main Gtk struct
Gets a UTF-8 string indicating the POSIX-style LC_MESSAGES locale of accessible.
Gets the accessible parent of the accessible. By default this is the one assigned with atk_object_set_parent(), but it is assumed that ATK implementors have ways to get the parent of the object without the need of assigning it manually with atk_object_set_parent(), and will return it with this method.
Gets the role of the accessible.
the main Gtk struct as a void*
Emits a state-change signal for the specified state.
Gets the accessible parent of the accessible, if it has been manually assigned with atk_object_set_parent. Otherwise, this function returns NULL.
Gets a reference to the specified accessible child of the object. The accessible children are 0-based so the first accessible child is at index 0, the second at index 1 and so on.
Gets the atk.RelationSet associated with the object.
Gets a reference to the state set of the accessible; the caller must unreference it when it is no longer needed.
Removes a property change handler.
Removes a relationship of the specified type with the specified target.
Sets the accessible ID of the accessible. This is not meant to be presented to the user, but to be an ID which is stable over application development. Typically, this is the gtkbuilder ID. Such an ID will be available for instance to identify a given well-known accessible object for tailored screen reading, or for automatic regression testing.
Sets the accessible description of the accessible. You can't set the description to NULL. This is reserved for the initial value. In this aspect NULL is similar to ATK_ROLE_UNKNOWN. If you want to set the name to a empty value you can use "".
Sets the accessible name of the accessible. You can't set the name to NULL. This is reserved for the initial value. In this aspect NULL is similar to ATK_ROLE_UNKNOWN. If you want to set the name to a empty value you can use "".
Sets the accessible parent of the accessible. parent can be NULL.
Sets the role of the accessible.
Get the AtkRole type corresponding to a rolew name.
Gets the localized description string describing the AtkRole role.
Gets the description string describing the AtkRole role.
Registers the role specified by name. name must be a meaningful name. So it should not be empty, or consisting on whitespaces.

Get the main Gtk struct
the main Gtk struct as a void*
Gets a D Object from the objects table of associations.
The notify signal is emitted on an object when one of its properties has been changed. Note that getting this signal doesn't guarantee that the value of the property has actually changed, it may also be emitted when the setter for the property is called to reinstate the previous value.
Find the gobject.ParamSpec with the given name for an interface. Generally, the interface vtable passed in as g_iface will be the default vtable from g_type_default_interface_ref(), or, if you know the interface has already been loaded, g_type_default_interface_peek().
Add a property to an interface; this is only useful for interfaces that are added to GObject-derived types. Adding a property to an interface forces all objects classes with that interface to have a compatible property. The compatible property could be a newly created gobject.ParamSpec, but normally ObjectClass.overrideProperty will be used so that the object class only needs to provide an implementation and inherits the property description, default value, bounds, and so forth from the interface property.
Lists the properties of an interface.Generally, the interface vtable passed in as g_iface will be the default vtable from g_type_default_interface_ref(), or, if you know the interface has already been loaded, g_type_default_interface_peek().
Increases the reference count of the object by one and sets a callback to be called when all other references to the object are dropped, or when this is already the last reference to the object and another reference is established.
Adds a weak reference from weak_pointer to object to indicate that the pointer located at weak_pointer_location is only valid during the lifetime of object. When the object is finalized, weak_pointer will be set to NULL.
Creates a binding between source_property on source and target_property on target. Whenever the source_property is changed the target_property is updated using the same value. For instance:
Complete version of g_object_bind_property().
Creates a binding between source_property on source and target_property on target, allowing you to set the transformation functions to be used by the binding.
This is a variant of g_object_get_data() which returns a 'duplicate' of the value. dup_func defines the meaning of 'duplicate' in this context, it could e.g. take a reference on a ref-counted object.
This is a variant of g_object_get_qdata() which returns a 'duplicate' of the value. dup_func defines the meaning of 'duplicate' in this context, it could e.g. take a reference on a ref-counted object.
Increases the freeze count on object. If the freeze count is non-zero, the emission of "notify" signals on object is stopped. The signals are queued until the freeze count is decreased to zero. Duplicate notifications are squashed so that at most one notify signal is emitted for each property modified while the object is frozen.
Gets a named field from the objects table of associations (see g_object_set_data()).
Gets a property of an object.
This function gets back user data pointers stored via g_object_set_qdata().
Gets properties of an object.
Gets n_properties properties for an object. Obtained properties will be set to values. All properties must be valid. Warnings will be emitted and undefined behaviour may result if invalid properties are passed in.
Checks whether object has a floating[floating-ref] reference.
Emits a "notify" signal for the property property_name on object.
Emits a "notify" signal for the property specified by pspec on object.
Increases the reference count of object.
Increase the reference count of object, and possibly remove the floating[floating-ref] reference, if object has a floating reference.
Removes a reference added with g_object_add_toggle_ref(). The reference count of the object is decreased by one.
Removes a weak reference from object that was previously added using g_object_add_weak_pointer(). The weak_pointer_location has to match the one used with g_object_add_weak_pointer().
Compares the user data for the key key on object with oldval, and if they are the same, replaces oldval with newval.
Compares the user data for the key quark on object with oldval, and if they are the same, replaces oldval with newval.
Releases all references to other objects. This can be used to break reference cycles.
Each object carries around a table of associations from strings to pointers. This function lets you set an association.
Like g_object_set_data() except it adds notification for when the association is destroyed, either by setting it to a different value or when the object is destroyed.
Sets a property on an object.
This sets an opaque, named pointer on an object. The name is specified through a GQuark (retrived e.g. via g_quark_from_static_string()), and the pointer can be gotten back from the object with g_object_get_qdata() until the object is finalized. Setting a previously set user data pointer, overrides (frees) the old pointer set, using NULL as pointer essentially removes the data stored.
This function works like g_object_set_qdata(), but in addition, a void (*destroy) (gpointer) function may be specified which is called with data as argument when the object is finalized, or the data is being overwritten by a call to g_object_set_qdata() with the same quark.
Sets properties on an object.
Sets n_properties properties for an object. Properties to be set will be taken from values. All properties must be valid. Warnings will be emitted and undefined behaviour may result if invalid properties are passed in.
Remove a specified datum from the object's data associations, without invoking the association's destroy handler.
This function gets back user data pointers stored via g_object_set_qdata() and removes the data from object without invoking its destroy() function (if any was set). Usually, calling this function is only required to update user data pointers with a destroy notifier, for example:
Reverts the effect of a previous call to g_object_freeze_notify(). The freeze count is decreased on object and when it reaches zero, queued "notify" signals are emitted.
Decreases the reference count of object. When its reference count drops to 0, the object is finalized (i.e. its memory is freed).
This function essentially limits the life time of the closure to the life time of the object. That is, when the object is finalized, the closure is invalidated by calling Closure.invalidate on it, in order to prevent invocations of the closure with a finalized (nonexisting) object. Also, g_object_ref() and g_object_unref() are added as marshal guards to the closure, to ensure that an extra reference count is held on object during invocation of the closure. Usually, this function will be called on closures that use this object as closure data.
Adds a weak reference callback to an object. Weak references are used for notification when an object is finalized. They are called "weak references" because they allow you to safely hold a pointer to an object without calling g_object_ref() (g_object_ref() adds a strong reference, that is, forces the object to stay alive).
Removes a weak reference callback to an object.
Clears a reference to a GObject
