I want to display something in my text view widget in glade using c code. that's all right.
now I need to attach a save button beneath the text view.so that on click the text view content should save as a txt file...possible?..any idea?
What are you stuck with? As far as I was aware, Glade just creates the files for you, you need to code all the writing etc. yourself in C. So if you have added the button, then writing to a file on the disk just a matter of using some stdio.h functions...
A common approach to this problem is to make filenames containing time & date components. As long as there is only one instance of the program running, and the timestamp used is finely enough resolved, the names are guaranteed to be unique, and also have the benefit of carrying potentially useful information. With carefully chosen formats, they can also sort nicely.
