Re: Gtk.Switch.set_state() without setting active




Hi, I'm not a member of the list, but I read your email in the archive.
I actually sent my email 14 days ago, it seems like it was hold for
moderator approval since.

First, thanks a lot for your work on this! Still, your proposal does not
solve the problem I wanted to solve. I think I didn't explain it
precisely enough: I tried to set the state to False _after_ it was
_already_ set to True (the service runs into an error at some point
_after_ it was started successfully).

I came to the conclusion that this might just not be possible, because
the state is only designed for a delayed state change, but not for a
state change independent from the active state.

Cheers
