Description

The functions and objects described here make working with GTK+ and GIO more convenient.

GtkMountOperation is needed when mounting volumes: It is an implementation of GMountOperation that can be used with GIO functions for mounting volumes such as g_file_mount_enclosing_volume(), g_file_mount_mountable(), g_volume_mount(), g_mount_unmount_with_operation() and others.

When necessary, GtkMountOperation shows dialogs to ask for passwords, questions or show processes blocking unmount.

gtk_show_uri() is a convenient way to launch applications for URIs.

Another object that is worth mentioning in this context is GdkAppLaunchContext, which provides visual feedback when lauching applications.

Functions

gtk_mount_operation_new ()

GMountOperation *
gtk_mount_operation_new (GtkWindow *parent);

Creates a new GtkMountOperation

Parameters

parent

transient parent of the window, or NULL.

[allow-none]

Returns

a new GtkMountOperation

Since: 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_is_showing ()

gboolean
gtk_mount_operation_is_showing (GtkMountOperation *op);

Returns whether the GtkMountOperation is currently displaying a window.

Parameters

Returns

TRUE if op is currently displaying a window

Since: 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_set_parent ()

void
gtk_mount_operation_set_parent (GtkMountOperation *op,
                                GtkWindow *parent);

Sets the transient parent for windows shown by the GtkMountOperation.

Parameters

op

a GtkMountOperation

 

parent

transient parent of the window, or NULL.

[allow-none]

Since: 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_get_parent ()

GtkWindow *
gtk_mount_operation_get_parent (GtkMountOperation *op);

Gets the transient parent used by the GtkMountOperation

Parameters

Returns

the transient parent for windows shown by op .

[transfer none]

Since: 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_set_screen ()

void
gtk_mount_operation_set_screen (GtkMountOperation *op,
                                GdkScreen *screen);

Sets the screen to show windows of the GtkMountOperation on.

Parameters

op

a GtkMountOperation

 

screen

a GdkScreen

 

Since: 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_get_screen ()

GdkScreen *
gtk_mount_operation_get_screen (GtkMountOperation *op);

Gets the screen on which windows of the GtkMountOperation will be shown.

Parameters

Returns

the screen on which windows of op are shown.

[transfer none]

Since: 2.14


gtk_show_uri ()

gboolean
gtk_show_uri (GdkScreen *screen,
              const gchar *uri,
              guint32 timestamp,
              GError **error);

This is a convenience function for launching the default application to show the uri. The uri must be of a form understood by GIO (i.e. you need to install gvfs to get support for uri schemes such as http:// or ftp://, as only local files are handled by GIO itself). Typical examples are

  • file:///home/gnome/pict.jpg

  • http://www.gnome.org

  • mailto:me@gnome.org

Ideally the timestamp is taken from the event triggering the gtk_show_uri() call. If timestamp is not known you can take GDK_CURRENT_TIME.

Parameters

screen

screen to show the uri on or NULL for the default screen.

[allow-none]

uri

the uri to show

 

timestamp

a timestamp to prevent focus stealing

 

error

a GError that is returned in case of errors

 

Returns

TRUE on success, FALSE on error

Since: 2.14
