GConfSchema

GConfSchema — A GConfSchema describes a GConfEntry

Description

A "schema" describes a key-value pair in a GConf database. It may include information such as default value and value type, as well as documentation describing the pair, the name of the application that created the pair, etc.

A GConfSchema duplicates some of the information about the value it describes, such as type information. In these cases, the type information provided describes what the type of the value should be, not what the type actually is.

Details

GConfSchema

typedef struct _GConfSchema GConfSchema;

An opaque data type representing a description of a key-value pair.


gconf_schema_new ()

GConfSchema *       gconf_schema_new                    (void);
