Description

A GConfListeners object is used to store listeners who want notification of changes in a namespace section. It is a public API shared between gconfd and the GObject convenience wrapper.

Details

GConfListeners

typedef struct _GConfListeners GConfListeners;

The GConfListeners structure contains nothing other than a dummy pointer. Internally the data about listeners is maintained through a listener table structure, LTable which contains data like the namespace, an array to hold the listeners, count of active listeners,value to be given to the next connection and the list of connection indices to be recycled. There is also a Listener structure maintaining data pertaining to listeners.


GConfListenersCallback ()

void                (*GConfListenersCallback)           (GConfListeners *listeners,

                                                         guint cnxn_id,
                                                         gpointer listener_data,

Returns :

the newly allocated GConfListeners.

gconf_listeners_free ()

                                                         gpointer listener_data,
                                                         GFreeFunc destroy_notify);

Creates a new Listener with the next available connection id and inserts it into the listener table. The newly created listener listens for changes below and including the listen_point.Returns the newly assigned connection id.

listeners :

a GConfListeners.

listen_point :

where to listen for changes.

listener_data :

data to pass to function.

destroy_notify :

pointer to the function to be called when the listener is destroyed.

Returns :

the newly assigned connection id, a guint value.

gconf_listeners_remove ()
