GtkEntry completion

Looking at the docs I see that the GtkEntry completion property is being deprecated? Is there a replacement API to add completion to an entry box?

I’m also interested to know. GtkEntryCompletion is used by gedit (still with GTK 3).

“GtkEntryCompletion will be removed in GTK 5.”

A replacement based on the SuggestionEntry demo widget is planned for GTK 4.10. The only reason why SuggestionEntry wasn’t properly added to the API was that we didn’t have a full deprecation plan for all the cell renderer-based widgets.

Ok, makes sense now that GtkTreeView is deprecated too.

That makes sense. I appreciate your answer.
