Description

The gio.AppLaunchContext is used for integrating the launch with the launching application. This is used to handle for instance startup notification and launching the new application on the same screen as the launching window.

Constructor

    gio.AppLaunchContext()

Returns :

a new gio.AppLaunchContext.

Creates a new application launch context. This is not normally used, instead you instantiate a subclass of this, such as gtk.gdk.AppLaunchContext.

Methods

gio.AppLaunchContext.get_display

    def get_display(info, files)

info :

a gio.AppInfo

files :

a list of gio.File objects.

Returns :

a display string for the display.

The get_display() method gets the display string for the display. This is used to ensure new applications are started on the same display as the launching application.

gio.AppLaunchContext.get_startup_notify_id

    def get_startup_notify_id(info, files)

info :

a gio.AppInfo

files :

a list of gio.File objects.

Returns :

a startup notification ID for the application, or None if not supported.

The get_startup_notify_id() method initiates startup notification for the application and returns the DESKTOP_STARTUP_ID for the launched operation, if supported.

Startup notification IDs are defined in the FreeDesktop.Org Startup Notifications standard.

gio.AppLaunchContext.launch_failed

    def launch_failed(startup_notify_id)

startup_notify_id :

the startup notification id that was returned by get_startup_notify_id.

Returns :

a startup notification ID for the application, or None if not supported.

The get_startup_notify_id() method is called when an application has failed to launch, so that it can cancel the application startup notification started in get_startup_notify_id
