Nautilus.ColumnProvider

Nautilus.ColumnProvider — Nautilus.ColumnProvider Reference

Synopsis

class Nautilus.ColumnProvider:
    def get_columns()

Description

If subclassed, Nautilus will request a list of Nautilus.Column objects, which are then displayed when the user is in List mode.

Note

An extension sub-classing Nautilus.ColumnProvider will almost always want to sub-class Nautilus.InfoProvider as well, since that is how an extension provides information for each item in a directory listing.

                               label="Block size",
                               description="Get the block size"),
