A gtk.Window can be one of these types. Most things you’d consider a “window” should have type GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL; windows with this type are managed by the window manager and have a frame by default (call Window.setDecorated to toggle the frame). Windows with type GTK_WINDOW_POPUP are ignored by the window manager; window manager keybindings won’t work on them, the window manager won’t decorate the window with a frame, many GTK+ features that rely on the window manager will not work (e.g. resize grips and maximization/minimization). GTK_WINDOW_POPUP is used to implement widgets such as gtk.Menu or tooltips that you normally don’t think of as windows per se. Nearly all windows should be GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL In particular, do not use GTK_WINDOW_POPUP just to turn off the window borders; use Window.setDecorated for that.



A regular window, such as a dialog.
