Known Implementations

TpChannelManager is implemented by TpBaseContactList and TpSimplePasswordManager.

Description

A channel manager is attached to a connection. It carries out channel requests from the connection, and responds to channel-related events on the underlying network connection, for particular classes of channel (for example, incoming and outgoing calls, respectively). It also tracks currently-open channels of the relevant kinds.

The connection has an array of channel managers. In response to a call to CreateChannel or RequestChannel, the channel request is offered to each channel manager in turn, until one accepts the request. In a trivial implementation there might be a single channel manager which handles all requests and all incoming events, but in general, there will be multiple channel managers handling different types of channel.

For example, at the time of writing, Gabble has a roster channel manager which handles contact lists and groups, an IM channel manager which handles one-to-one messaging, a MUC channel manager which handles multi-user chat rooms, the index of chat rooms and MUC tubes, a media channel manager which handles VoIP calls, and a 1-1 tubes channel manager.

TpChannelManagerRequestFunc ()

gboolean            (*TpChannelManagerRequestFunc)      (TpChannelManager *manager,
                                                         gpointer request_token,
                                                         GHashTable *request_properties);

Signature of an implementation of TpChannelManagerIface.create_channel and TpChannelManagerIface.request_channel.

Implementations should inspect the contents of request_properties to see if it matches a channel class handled by this manager. If so, they should return TRUE to accept responsibility for the request, and ultimately emit exactly one of the "new-channels", "request-already-satisfied" and "request-failed" signals (including request_token in the appropriate argument).

If the implementation does not want to handle the request, it should return FALSE to allow the request to be offered to another channel manager.

Implementations may assume the following of request_properties:

  • the ChannelType property is present, and is a (const gchar *)
  • the TargetHandleType property is a valid TpHandleType, if present
  • if TargetHandleType is None, TargetHandle is omitted
  • if TargetHandleType is not None, TargetHandle is a valid TpHandle of that TpHandleType

Changed in version 0.15.5: Previously the TargetID property was guaranteed to be missing from request_properties. Now it is always present, whether it was in the original channel request or not.

manager :

An object implementing TpChannelManager

request_token :

An opaque pointer representing this pending request.

request_properties :

A table mapping (const gchar *) property names to GValue, representing the desired properties of a channel requested by a Telepathy client. The hash table will be freed after the function returns; if the channel manager wants to keep it around, it must copy it.

Returns :

TRUE if manager will handle this request, else FALSE.

TpChannelManagerForeachChannelFunc foreach_channel;

Call func(channel, user_data) for each channel managed by this manager. If not implemented, the manager is assumed to manage no channels.

TpChannelManagerForeachChannelClassFunc foreach_channel_class;

Call func(manager, fixed, allowed, user_data) for each class of channel that this instance can create (a subset of the channel classes produced by type_foreach_channel_class). If not implemented, type_foreach_channel_class is used.

TpChannelManagerRequestFunc create_channel;

Respond to a request for a new channel made with the Connection.Interface.Requests.CreateChannel method. See TpChannelManagerRequestFunc for details.

TpChannelManagerRequestFunc request_channel;

Respond to a request for a (new or existing) channel made with the Connection.RequestChannel method. See TpChannelManagerRequestFunc for details.

TpChannelManagerRequestFunc ensure_channel;

Respond to a request for a (new or existing) channel made with the Connection.Interface.Requests.EnsureChannel method. See TpChannelManagerRequestFunc for details. Since: 0.7.16

TpChannelManagerTypeForeachChannelClassFunc type_foreach_channel_class;

Call func(cls, fixed, allowed, user_data) for each class of channel that instances of this class might be able to create. Since: 0.11.11

                                                         GError **error);

Checks whether the keys of properties are elements of one of fixed and allowed. This is intended to be used by implementations of TpChannelManagerIface.create_channel which have decided to accept a request, to conform with the specification's requirement that unknown requested properties must cause a request to fail, not be silently ignored.

On encountering unknown properties, this function will return TRUE, and set error to a GError that could be used as a D-Bus method error.

properties :

a table mapping (const gchar *) property names to GValues, as passed to methods of TpChannelManager

fixed :

a NULL-terminated array of property names

allowed :

a NULL-terminated array of property names

error :

an address at which to store an error suitable for returning from the D-Bus method when properties contains unknown properties

Returns :

TRUE if properties contains keys not in either fixed or allowed; else FALSE.

Warning

tp_channel_manager_emit_new_channels is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code. in 0.19.1 this function should not be used. Signalling the creation of multiple channels together in a single signal is strongly recommended against as it's very complicated, hard to get right in clients, and not nearly as useful as it originally sounded. Use tp_channel_manager_emit_new_channel() instead.

If channels is non-empty, emit the "new-channels" signal indicating that those channels have been created.

instance :

An object implementing TpChannelManager

channels :

a GHashTable where the keys are TpExportableChannel instances (hashed and compared by g_direct_hash() and g_direct_equal()) and the values are linked lists (GSList) of request tokens (opaque pointers) satisfied by these channels

Signal Details

The "channel-closed" signal

void                user_function                      (TpChannelManager *self,
                                                        gchar            *path,

Emitted when a channel has been closed. The Connection should generally respond to this signal by emitting ChannelClosed.

self :

the channel manager

path :

the channel's object-path

user_data :

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

The "new-channels" signal

void                user_function                      (TpChannelManager *self,
                                                        gpointer          channels,

Emitted when new channels have been created. The Connection should generally emit NewChannels (and NewChannel) in response to this signal, and then return from pending CreateChannel, EnsureChannel and/or RequestChannel calls if appropriate.

Since 0.19.1, clients should not emit more than one channel in this signal at one time as the creation of multiple channels together in a single signal is strongly recommended against: it's very complicated, hard to get right in clients, and not nearly as useful as it originally sounded.

self :

the channel manager

channels :

a GHashTable where the keys are TpExportableChannel instances (hashed and compared by g_direct_hash() and g_direct_equal()) and the values are linked lists (GSList) of request tokens (opaque pointers) satisfied by these channels

self :

the channel manager

request_token :

opaque pointer supplied by the requester, representing a request

channel :

the existing TpExportableChannel that satisfies the request
