Description

a GConfChangeSet allows you to collect a set of changes to configuration keys (set/unset operations). You can then commit all the changes at once. This is convenient for something like a preferences dialog; you can collect all the pending changes in a GConfChangeSet, then when the user clicks "apply" send them all to the configuration database. The GConfChangeSet allows you to avoid sending every preferences setting when "apply" is clicked; you only have to send the settings the user changed.

In the future, GConf may also have optimizations so that changing a group of values with GConfChangeSet is faster than calling gconf_engine_set() for each value. In the future, GConfChangeSet may also represent an atomic transaction, where all or none of the values are set; however, for now the operation is not atomic.

Details

GConfChangeSet

typedef struct _GConfChangeSet GConfChangeSet;

An opaque data type representing a set of changes to be made. A change set can contain "set" and "unset" operations.


GConfChangeSetForeachFunc ()

void                (*GConfChangeSetForeachFunc)        (GConfChangeSet *cs,
                                                         const gchar *key,
                                                         GConfValue *value,
                                                         gpointer user_data);

The type of a function passed to gconf_change_set_foreach(). The cs argument is the GConfChangeSet you're iterating over. key is a key in the change set. value is the value the key will be set to, or NULL if the key will be unset. user_data is the user data passed to gconf_change_set_foreach().

cs :

the GConfChangeSet being iterated over.

key :

the current key.

value :

the current value, or NULL.

user_data :

user data passed to gconf_change_set_foreach().

gconf_engine_commit_change_set ()

gboolean            gconf_engine_commit_change_set      (GConfEngine *conf,
                                                         GConfChangeSet *cs,
                                                         gboolean remove_committed,
                                                         GError **err);

Applies the changes in the change set to the GConfEngine passed as the first argument. If remove_committed is TRUE, then any successfully-committed changes are removed from the change set. If remove_committed is FALSE, the GConfChangeSet is left unmodified.

If any set or unset operation results in an error, then processing terminates and the error is returned in err (unless err was NULL). If remove_committed was TRUE, then all the changes committed before the error occurred will have been removed from the set. If any error occurs, FALSE is returned.

conf :

a GConfEngine.

cs :

a GConfChangeSet.

remove_committed :

whether to remove successfully-committed changes from the set

err :

the return location for an allocated GError, or NULL to ignore errors.

Returns :

TRUE on success, FALSE if an error occurs.

the return location for an allocated GError, or NULL to ignore errors.

                                                         GError **err,
                                                         const gchar *first_key,

gconf_change_set_new ()

GConfChangeSet *    gconf_change_set_new                (void);

Returns :

Decreases the reference count of a GConfChangeSet by one. If the reference count reaches 0, destroys the GConfChangeSet.

cs :

a GConfChangeSet.

gconf_change_set_clear ()

void                gconf_change_set_clear              (GConfChangeSet *cs);

                                                         gpointer user_data);

Iterates over a GConfChangeSet by calling a GConfChangeSetForeachFunc for each change in the set. See the description of GConfChangeSetForeachFunc for details. You may not call gconf_change_set_remove() during the iteration, because you'll confuse the internal data structures and cause memory corruption.

cs :

a GConfChangeSet.

func :

function to call for each change in the change set. [scope call]

user_data :

user data to pass to the GConfChangeSetForeachFunc.

gconf_change_set_check_value ()

void                gconf_change_set_set                (GConfChangeSet *cs,
                                                         const gchar *key,
                                                         GConfValue *value);

Adds a "set" operation to a change set. This function is similar to gconf_engine_set(), except that no errors can occur (errors occur later, when you try to commit the change set).

cs :

a GConfChangeSet.

key :

the key to change.

value :

the value to change the key to.

gconf_change_set_set_nocopy ()

void                gconf_change_set_set_nocopy         (GConfChangeSet *cs,

Like gconf_change_set_set(), except that the GConfChangeSet takes ownership of the GConfValue. You should not use the value again. It will be destroyed when the change is removed from the GConfChangeSet, the change is modified, or the GConfChangeSet is destroyed.

cs :

a GConfChangeSet.

key :

the key to change.

value :

the new value of key.

gconf_change_set_unset ()

void                gconf_change_set_unset              (GConfChangeSet *cs,
