bonobo_app_client_new ()

BonoboAppClient *   bonobo_app_client_new               (Bonobo_Application app_server);

app_server: object reference to a Bonobo::Application; this function takes ownership of this reference (use bonobo_object_dup_ref() if you want to keep your own reference.)

Create an application client object connected to the remote (or local) Bonobo::Application object.

Warning

Applications should not use this function. See bonobo_application_register_unique().

app_server :

Returns :

a BonoboAppClient object.

bonobo_app_client_new_instance ()

gint                bonobo_app_client_new_instance      (BonoboAppClient *app_client,
                                                         int argc,
                                                         char *argv[],
                                                         CORBA_Environment *opt_env);

Ask the application server to emit a "new-instance" signal containing the specified string vector.

app_client :

a BonoboAppClient

argc :

length of argv

argv :

array of command-line arguments

opt_env :

a CORBA_Environment, or NULL.

Returns :

the message return value

bonobo_app_client_msg_send_valist ()

GValue *            bonobo_app_client_msg_send_valist   (BonoboAppClient *app_client,
                                                         const char *message,
                                                         CORBA_Environment *opt_env,

                                                         va_list var_args);

See bonobo_app_client_msg_send().

app_client :

client

message :

message name

opt_env :

optional corba environment

first_arg_type :

first message parameter

var_args :

remaining parameters

Returns :

return value

bonobo_app_client_msg_send_argv ()

GValue *            bonobo_app_client_msg_send_argv     (BonoboAppClient *app_client,
                                                         const char *message,
                                                         const GValue *argv[],
                                                         CORBA_Environment *opt_env);

Like bonobo_app_client_msg_send(), except that it receives a single argument vector instead of a variable number of arguments.

app_client :

client

message :

message name

argv :

NULL-terminated vector of pointers to GValue, the arguments to pass with the message.

opt_env :

Returns :

the message return value

bonobo_app_client_msg_send ()

GValue *            bonobo_app_client_msg_send          (BonoboAppClient *app_client,
                                                         const char *message,
                                                         CORBA_Environment *opt_env,
                                                         GType first_arg_type,
                                                         ...);

Send a message to the application server. Takes a variable length argument list of GType, value pairs, terminated with G_TYPE_NONE. Values are direct C values, not GValues! Example:

1
2
3
4
5
GValue *retval;
retval = bonobo_app_client_msg_send (app_client, "openURL",
                                     G_TYPE_STRING, "http://www.gnome.org",
                                     G_TYPE_BOOLEAN, TRUE,
                                     G_TYPE_NONE);

app_client :
