A gtk-recent-filter can be used to restrict the files being shown in a gtk-recent-chooser. Files can be filtered based on their name with the function gtk-recent-filter-add-pattern, on their mime type with the function gtk-file-filter-add-mime-type, on the application that has registered them with the function gtk-recent-filter-add-application, or by a custom filter function with the function gtk-recent-filter-add-custom.

Filtering by mime type handles aliasing and subclassing of mime types; e. g. a filter for text/plain also matches a file with mime type application/rtf, since application/rtf is a subclass of text/plain. Note that gtk-recent-filter allows wildcards for the subtype of a mime type, so you can e. g. filter for image/*.

Normally, filters are used by adding them to a gtk-recent-chooser, see the function gtk-recent-chooser-add-filter, but it is also possible to manually use a filter on a file with the function gtk-recent-filter-filter.

Recently used files are supported since GTK+ 2.10.

GtkRecentFilter as GtkBuildable
The gtk-recent-filter implementation of the gtk-buildable interface supports adding rules using the <mime-types>, <patterns> and <applications> elements and listing the rules within. Specifying a <mime-type>, <pattern> or <application> is the same as calling the functions gtk-recent-filter-add-mime-type, gtk-recent-filter-add-pattern or gtk-recent-filter-add-application.

Example: A UI definition fragment specifying gtk-recent-filter rules
 <object class="GtkRecentFilter">
