Sugar has its own notebook class that is built on top of gtk.Notebook. Use the sugar version so that you can access specialized methods as needed.
How do I create a new notebook and populate it with pages?
The simple example below creates three pages, each with different types of containers. You can make anything a page in your notebook as long as it is a valid gtk container.
from sugar.graphics.notebook import Notebook ... top_canvas = Notebook() #Create pages for the notebook first_page = gtk.VBox() second_page = gtk.VBox() third_page = gtk.Frame() #Add the pages to the notebook. top_box.add_page('First Page', first_page) top_box.add_page('Second Page', second_page) top_box.add_page('Third_Page', third_page) #Set the canvas for this activity's UI to be the notebook object just created. self.set_canvas(top_canvas)
How do I do other standard operations on a sugar Notebook?
Most other work with the sugarized notebook can be done by using the gtk.Notebook interface
