[][src]Function vgtk::start

pub fn start<C: 'static + Component>() -> (Application, Scope<C>)

Start an Application component.

This will instantiate the component, construct the Application object and register it as the default Application. You will need to call Application::run() on this to actually start the GTK event loop and activate the application.

Calling this instead of vgtk::run() is useful if you need to get your component's Scope in order to fire off some async work at startup and notify it when the work is done.

If the component doesn't have an Application as its top level object, this function will panic.


let (app, scope) = vgtk::start::<MyComponent>();
let args: Vec<String> = std::env::args().collect();
