Description

The VipsObject class and associated types and macros.

VipsObject is the base class for all objects in libvips. It has the following major features:

Functional class creation Vips objects have a very regular lifecycle: initialise, build, use, destroy. They behave rather like function calls and are free of side-effects.

Run-time introspection Vips objects can be fully introspected at run-time. There is not need for separate source-code analysis.

Command-line interface Any vips object can be run from the command-line with the vips driver program.

The VipsObject lifecycle

VipsObject s have a strictly defined lifecycle, split broadly as construct and then use. In detail, the stages are:

  1. g_object_new(). The VipsObject is created with g_object_new(). Objects in this state are blank slates and need to have their various parameters set.

  2. g_object_set(). You loop over the VipsArgument that the object has defined with vips_argument_map(). Arguments have a set of flags attached to them for required, optional, input, output, type, and so on. You must set all required arguments.

  3. vips_object_build(). Call this to construct the object and get it ready for use. Building an object happens in four stages, see below.

  4. g_object_get(). The object has now been built. You can read out any computed values.

  5. g_object_unref(). When you are done with an object, you can unref it. See the section on reference counting for an explanation of the convention that VipsObject uses. When the last ref to an object is released, the object is closed. Objects close in three stages, see below.

The stages inside vips_object_build() are:

  1. Chain up through the object's build class methods. At each stage, each class does any initial setup and checking, then chains up to its superclass.

  2. The innermost build method inside VipsObject itself checks that all input arguments have been set and then returns.

  3. All object build methods now finish executing, from innermost to outermost. They know all input arguments have been checked and supplied, so now they set all output arguments.

  4. vips_object_build() finishes the process by checking that all output objects have been set, and then triggering the “postbuild” signal. “postbuild” only runs if the object has constructed successfuly.

VipsOperation has a cache of recent operation objects, see that class for an explanation of vips_cache_operation_build().

Finally the stages inside close are:

  1. “preclose”. This is emitted at the start of the VipsObject dispose. The object is still functioning.

  2. “close”. This runs just after all VipsArgument held by the object have been released.

  3. “postclose”. This runs right at the end. The object pointer is still valid, but nothing else is.

VipsArgument

libvips has a simple mechanism for automating at least some aspects of GObject properties. You add a set of macros to your _class_init() which describe the arguments, and set the get and set functions to the vips ones.

See extending for a complete example.

The VipsObject reference counting convention

VipsObject has a set of conventions to simplify reference counting.

  1. All input GObject have a ref added to them, owned by the object. When a VipsObject is unreffed, all of these refs to input objects are automatically dropped.

  2. All output GObject hold a ref to the object. When a GObject which is an output of a VipsObject is disposed, it must drop this reference. VipsObject which are outputs of other VipsObject will do this automatically.

See VipsOperation for an example of VipsObject reference counting.

vips_object_local_array (VipsObject *parent,
                         int n);

Make an array of NULL VipsObject pointers. When parent closes, every non-NULL pointer in the array will be unreffed and the array will be freed. Handy for creating a set of temporary images for a function.

The array is NULL-terminated, ie. contains an extra NULL element at the end.

Example:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
VipsObject **t;

t = vips_object_local_array( a, 5 );
if( 
  vips_add( a, b, &t[0], NULL ) ||
  vips_invert( t[0], &t[1], NULL ) ||
  vips_add( t[1], t[0], &t[2], NULL ) ||
  vips_costra( t[2], out, NULL ) )
  return( -1 );

Parameters

parent

objects unref when this object unrefs

 

n

array size

 

Returns

an array of NULL pointers of length n

vips_object_local_cb ()

void
vips_object_local_cb (VipsObject *vobject,
                      GObject *gobject);

vips_object_local()

#define             vips_object_local( V, G )

vips_object_set_static ()

void
vips_object_set_static (VipsObject *object,
                        gboolean static_object);

vips_object_print_all ()

void
vips_object_print_all (void);

vips_object_sanity_all ()

void
vips_object_sanity_all (void);

vips_object_rewind ()

void
vips_object_rewind (VipsObject *object);

vips_object_unref_outputs ()

void
vips_object_unref_outputs (VipsObject *object);

Unref all assigned output objects. Useful for language bindings.

After an object is built, all output args are owned by the caller. If something goes wrong before then, we have to unref the outputs that have been made so far. This function can also be useful for callers when they've finished processing outputs themselves.

See also: vips_cache_operation_build().

Parameters

object

object to drop output refs from

 

vips_object_get_description ()

const char *
vips_object_get_description (VipsObject *object);

Fetch the object description. Useful for language bindings.

object.description is only avaliable after _build(), which can be too late. This function fetches from the instance, if possible, but falls back to the class description if we are too early.

Parameters

object

object to fetch description from

 

Returns

the object description

Types and Values

enum VipsArgumentFlags

Flags we associate with each object argument.

Have separate input & output flags. Both set is an error; neither set is OK.

Input gobjects are automatically reffed, output gobjects automatically ref us. We also automatically watch for "destroy" and unlink.

VIPS_ARGUMENT_SET_ALWAYS is handy for arguments which are set from C. For example, VipsImage::width is a property that gives access to the Xsize member of struct _VipsImage. We default its 'assigned' to TRUE since the field is always set directly by C.

VIPS_ARGUMENT_DEPRECATED arguments are not shown in help text, are not looked for if required, are not checked for "have-been-set". You can deprecate a required argument, but you must obviously add a new required argument if you do.

Input args with VIPS_ARGUMENT_MODIFY will be modified by the operation. This is used for things like the in-place drawing operations.

Members

VIPS_ARGUMENT_NONE

no flags

 

VIPS_ARGUMENT_REQUIRED

must be set in the constructor

 

VIPS_ARGUMENT_CONSTRUCT

can only be set in the constructor

 

VIPS_ARGUMENT_SET_ONCE

can only be set once

 

VIPS_ARGUMENT_SET_ALWAYS

don't do use-before-set checks

 

VIPS_ARGUMENT_INPUT

is an input argument (one we depend on)

 

VIPS_ARGUMENT_OUTPUT

is an output argument (depends on us)

 

VIPS_ARGUMENT_DEPRECATED

just there for back-compat, hide

 

VIPS_ARGUMENT_MODIFY

the input argument will be modified

Property Details

The “description” property

  “description”              gchar *

Class description.

Signal Details

The “close” signal

void
user_function (VipsObject *object,
               gpointer    user_data)

The ::close signal is emitted once during object close. The object is dying and may not work.

Parameters

object

the object that is closing

 

user_data

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

 

Flags: Run Last

The “postbuild” signal

gint
user_function (VipsObject *object,
               gpointer    user_data)

The ::postbuild signal is emitted once just after successful object construction. Return non-zero to cause object construction to fail.

Parameters

object

the object that has been built

 

user_data

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

 

Flags: Run Last

The “postclose” signal

void
user_function (VipsObject *object,
               gpointer    user_data)

The ::postclose signal is emitted once after object close. The object pointer is still valid, but nothing else.

Parameters

object

the object that has closed

 

user_data

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

 

Flags: Run Last

The “preclose” signal

void
user_function (VipsObject *object,
               gpointer    user_data)

The ::preclose signal is emitted once just before object close starts. The oject is still alive.
