Description

The gtk.gdk.AppLaunchContext is an implementation of gio.AppLaunchContext that handles launching an application in a graphical context. It provides startup notification and allows to launch applications on a specific screen or workspace.

Methods

gtk.gdk.AppLaunchContext.set_display

    def set_display()

display :

a gtk.gdk.Display.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.14 and above.

The set_display() method sets the display on which applications will be launched when using this context. See also set_screen.

gtk.gdk.AppLaunchContext.set_desktop

    def set_desktop()

desktop :

the number of a workspace, or -1

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.14 and above.

The set_desktop() method sets the workspace on which applications will be launched when using this context when running under a window manager that supports multiple workspaces, as described in the Extended Window Manager Hints.

When the workspace is not specified or desktop is set to -1, it is up to the window manager to pick one, typically it will be the current workspace.

gtk.gdk.AppLaunchContext.set_icon

    def set_icon()

icon :

a gio.Icon, or None.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.14 and above.

The set_icon() method sets the icon for applications that are launched with this context. See also set_icon_name.

gtk.gdk.AppLaunchContext.set_icon_name

    def set_icon_name()

icon_name :

an icon name, or None.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.14 and above.

The set_icon_name() method sets the icon for applications that are launched with this context. The icon_name will be interpreted in the same way as the Icon field in desktop files. See also set_icon.

If both icon and icon_name are set, the icon_name takes priority. If neither icon or icon_name is set, the icon is taken from either the file that is passed to launched application or from the gio.AppInfo for the launched application itself.

gtk.gdk.AppLaunchContext.set_timestamp

    def set_timestamp()

timestamp :

a timestamp

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.14 and above.

The set_timestamp() method sets the timestamp of context. The timestamp should ideally be taken from the event that triggered the launch.

Window managers can use this information to avoid moving the focus to the newly launched application when the user is busy typing in another window. This is also known as 'focus stealing prevention'.
