Description

This interface allows a client to get information from various connection interfaces in one dbus call.

This section documents the auto-generated C wrappers for the Contacts interface, used with TpConnection objects.

Start a GetContactAttributes method call.

Return any number of contact attributes for the given handles.

proxy :

the TpProxy

timeout_ms :

the timeout in milliseconds, or -1 to use the default

in_Handles :

Used to pass an 'in' argument: An array of handles representing contacts.

in_Interfaces :

Used to pass an 'in' argument: <tp:docstring xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <p>A list of strings indicating which D-Bus interfaces the calling process is interested in. All supported attributes from these interfaces, whose values can be obtained without additional network activity, will be in the reply.</p> <p>Connection managers SHOULD ignore interfaces requested which they do not support (i.e. those not mentioned in the <tp:member-ref>ContactAttributeInterfaces</tp:member-ref> property.)</p> <tp:rationale> <p>This simplifies client-side code. Clients which care may distinguish between unsupported interfaces (e.g. this Connection does not support Avatars), and interfaces on which no information is known for these contacts (e.g. we don't know the avatar tokens of any of the contacts, so we omitted them all) by inspecting <tp:member-ref>ContactAttributeInterfaces</tp:member-ref>.</p> </tp:rationale> <p>Attributes from the interface <tp:dbus-ref>org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Connection</tp:dbus-ref> are always returned, and need not be requested explicitly.</p> <p>As well as returning cached information immediately, the connection MAY start asynchronous requests to obtain better values for the contact attributes. If better values are later obtained by this process, they will be indicated with the usual signals (such as <tp:dbus-ref namespace="org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Connection.Interface.Aliasing">AliasesChanged</tp:dbus-ref>).</p> <tp:rationale> For instance, an XMPP connection manager could download vCards in response to a request for <tp:dbus-ref namespace="org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Connection.Interface">Aliasing</tp:dbus-ref> attributes. </tp:rationale>

in_Hold :

Used to pass an 'in' argument: <tp:docstring xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <p>If true, all handles that appear as keys in the result have been held on behalf of the calling process, as if by a call to <tp:dbus-ref namespace="ofdT">Connection.HoldHandles</tp:dbus-ref>. (If <tp:dbus-ref namespace="ofdT.Connection">HasImmortalHandles</tp:dbus-ref> is true, which SHOULD be the case in all new connection managers, this has no effect.)</p> <tp:rationale> <p>For further round-trip avoidance.</p> </tp:rationale>

callback :

called when the method call succeeds or fails; may be NULL to make a "fire and forget" call with no reply tracking

user_data :

user-supplied data passed to the callback; must be NULL if callback is NULL

destroy :

called with the user_data as argument, after the call has succeeded, failed or been cancelled; must be NULL if callback is NULL

weak_object :

If not NULL, a GObject which will be weakly referenced; if it is destroyed, this call will automatically be cancelled. Must be NULL if callback is NULL

Returns :

a TpProxyPendingCall representing the call in progress. It is borrowed from the object, and will become invalid when the callback is called, the call is cancelled or the TpProxy becomes invalid.

Signature of the callback called when a GetContactAttributes method call succeeds or fails.

proxy :

the proxy on which the call was made

out_Attributes :

Used to return an 'out' argument if error is NULL: <tp:docstring xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <p>A dictionary mapping the contact handles to contact attributes. If any of the requested handles are in fact invalid, they are simply omitted from this mapping.

Warning

tp_cli_connection_interface_contacts_run_get_contact_attributes is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Call the method GetContactAttributes and run the main loop until it returns. Before calling this method, you must add a reference to any borrowed objects you need to keep, and generally ensure that everything is in a consistent state.

Return any number of contact attributes for the given handles.
