GtkLabel

Widget that displays a small amount of text.

Description

A very common use of GtkLabel is to display text that describes or makes some comment about the use of an adjacent widget. If you need to display a great deal of text, use GtkText instead.

Note that labels do not generate events. If you want to catch events (e.g. from a mouse click) you will need to put the label in a GtkEventBox.

See also: GtkEditable, GtkEventBox, GtkText.
