documentation top

There is no extensive documentation about the component yet. However, the source code is pretty small and in most cases all the developer should need to know is the list of IDL interfaces implemented by the component. Currently the following interfaces are at least partially implemented: Control, PersistFile, PersistStream. The two persist interfaces do not support saving. In addition, the component implements an interface specific to GtkMathView. See the .idl file included in the source distribution for more details.

Documentation for GtkMathView is available on GtkMathView's home page.

Note that, if used in conjunction with mozilla-bonobo, GtkMathView-Bonobo can be embedded inside HTML documents in Mozilla, Galeon, and Epiphany. Although browsers in the Mozilla family generally have native support for MathML markup, GtkMathView offers much faster rendering for large documents, especially for those with lots of nested tables, and can be configured independently of the browser.
There is a test page that you can use to verify if the plugin works. This is a screenshot showing the plugin displaying a formula with the popup-menu open.
