Hi All,

I did some further tests and the addresses returned in focus_column are the same as the columns I created with "gtk_tree_view_column_new();". Well, it's quite obvious but somehow I expected that there is some API function which returns an index for a column. Anyway, I will continue by comparing the addresses to find out which column I am in. I need this to find out which column "is next". I want to set the focus to the next cell/column if the user presses tab.

If anyone knows a better solution to determine the column/next column please let me know.

Hello All,

I got a little problem with a GtkTreeView and with getting the cell which actually has got the focus:

From the API documentation it seems like

gtk_tree_view_get_cursor(GTK_TREE_VIEW(tree), &path, &focus_column);

is doing the job. I can handle the path, it gives me the row which has the focus. But how do I get the index of the cell from focus_column (alias GtkTreeViewColumn)? A web search revealed some old forum entries which seem to state that it is not supported.

Do I have to check the column name or compare the addresses of my columns?

Thanks for any help in advance.
