Getting Started with PHP-GTK: Part 1 - Page 5

Finishing Up
We finish this all up with the following code:


These last to lines of code finish off the sample example program. The last method called on the window object is the show_all method that is derived from the GtkWidget class. The show_all method displays the widget and all the children of this widget. I definitely recommend checking out the GtkWidget::show_all and GtkWidget::show methods for additional information on when to use them. For this simple example, it is sufficient to call the show_all method to display the window and the button widget. Last, we call the Gtk function main. The main function gives you Gtk gui application a loop process that allows it to continue handling user input until the application is terminated.
As you can see from this simple example, that creating quality gui based PHP applications is fast and straight forward. As you get started with your own PHP-GTK applications, I would suggest reviewing the Gtk classes and functions. The PHP-GTK site has great documentation and provides many great links to other resources and applications that others have written using PHP-GTK.
