Description

A GPermission represents the status of the caller's permission to perform a certain action.

You can query if the action is currently allowed and if it is possible to acquire the permission so that the action will be allowed in the future.

There is also an API to actually acquire the permission and one to release it.

As an example, a GPermission might represent the ability for the user to write to a GSettings object. This GPermission object could then be used to decide if it is appropriate to show a "Click here to unlock" button in a dialog and to provide the mechanism to invoke when that button is clicked.

Details

GPermission

typedef struct _GPermission GPermission;

GPermission is an opaque data structure and can only be accessed using the following functions.


g_permission_get_allowed ()

gboolean            g_permission_get_allowed            (GPermission *permission);

Gets the value of the 'allowed' property. This property is TRUE if the caller currently has permission to perform the action that permission represents the permission to perform.

permission :

a GPermission instance

Returns :

the value of the 'allowed' property

Since 2.26


g_permission_get_can_acquire ()

gboolean            g_permission_get_can_acquire        (GPermission *permission);

Gets the value of the 'can-acquire' property. This property is TRUE if it is generally possible to acquire the permission by calling g_permission_acquire().

permission :

a GPermission instance

Returns :

the value of the 'can-acquire' property

Since 2.26


g_permission_get_can_release ()

gboolean            g_permission_get_can_release        (GPermission *permission);

Gets the value of the 'can-release' property. This property is TRUE if it is generally possible to release the permission by calling g_permission_release().

permission :

a GPermission instance

Returns :

the value of the 'can-release' property

Since 2.26


g_permission_acquire ()

gboolean            g_permission_acquire                (GPermission *permission,
                                                         GCancellable *cancellable,
                                                         GError **error);

Attempts to acquire the permission represented by permission.

The precise method by which this happens depends on the permission and the underlying authentication mechanism. A simple example is that a dialog may appear asking the user to enter their password.

You should check with g_permission_get_can_acquire() before calling this function.

If the permission is acquired then TRUE is returned. Otherwise, FALSE is returned and error is set appropriately.

This call is blocking, likely for a very long time (in the case that user interaction is required). See g_permission_acquire_async() for the non-blocking version.

permission :

a GPermission instance

cancellable :

a GCancellable, or NULL

error :

a pointer to a NULL GError, or NULL

Returns :

TRUE if the permission was successfully acquired

Since 2.26


g_permission_acquire_async ()

void                g_permission_acquire_async          (GPermission *permission,
                                                         GCancellable *cancellable,
                                                         GAsyncReadyCallback callback,
                                                         gpointer user_data);

Attempts to acquire the permission represented by permission.

This is the first half of the asynchronous version of g_permission_acquire().

permission :

a GPermission instance

cancellable :

a GCancellable, or NULL

callback :

the GAsyncReadyCallback to call when done

user_data :

the user data to pass to callback

Since 2.26


g_permission_acquire_finish ()

gboolean            g_permission_acquire_finish         (GPermission *permission,
                                                         GAsyncResult *result,
                                                         GError **error);

Collects the result of attempting to acquire the permission represented by permission.

This is the second half of the asynchronous version of g_permission_acquire().

permission :

a GPermission instance

result :

the GAsyncResult given to the GAsyncReadyCallback

error :

a pointer to a NULL GError, or NULL

Returns :

TRUE if the permission was successfully acquired

Since 2.26


g_permission_release ()

gboolean            g_permission_release                (GPermission *permission,
                                                         GCancellable *cancellable,
                                                         GError **error);

Attempts to release the permission represented by permission.

The precise method by which this happens depends on the permission and the underlying authentication mechanism. In most cases the permission will be dropped immediately without further action.

You should check with g_permission_get_can_release() before calling this function.

If the permission is released then TRUE is returned. Otherwise, FALSE is returned and error is set appropriately.

This call is blocking, likely for a very long time (in the case that user interaction is required). See g_permission_release_async() for the non-blocking version.

permission :

a GPermission instance

cancellable :

a GCancellable, or NULL

error :

a pointer to a NULL GError, or NULL

Returns :

TRUE if the permission was successfully released

Since 2.26


g_permission_release_async ()

void                g_permission_release_async          (GPermission *permission,
                                                         GCancellable *cancellable,
                                                         GAsyncReadyCallback callback,
                                                         gpointer user_data);

a GPermission instance

cancellable :

a GCancellable, or NULL

callback :

the GAsyncReadyCallback to call when done

user_data :

the user data to pass to callback

Since 2.26


g_permission_release_finish ()

gboolean            g_permission_release_finish         (GPermission *permission,
                                                         GAsyncResult *result,
                                                         GError **error);

g_permission_impl_update ()

void                g_permission_impl_update            (GPermission *permission,
                                                         gboolean allowed,
                                                         gboolean can_acquire,
                                                         gboolean can_release);

This function is called by the GPermission implementation to update the properties of the permission. You should never call this function except from a GPermission implementation.

GObject notify signals are generated, as appropriate.

permission :

a GPermission instance

allowed :

the new value for the 'allowed' property

can_acquire :

the new value for the 'can-acquire' property

can_release :

the new value for the 'can-release' property
