Description

This interface allows a client to request new channels from a connection, and to listen to signals indicating that channels have been created and closed.

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

                                                         GObject *weak_object);

Start a CreateChannel method call.

<tp:docstring xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <p>Request that an entirely new channel is created.</p> <tp:rationale> <p>There is deliberately no flag corresponding to the suppress_handler argument to <tp:dbus-ref namespace="org.freedesktop.Telepathy">Connection.RequestChannel</tp:dbus-ref>, because passing a FALSE value for that argument is deprecated. Requests made using this interface always behave as though suppress_handler was TRUE.</p> </tp:rationale>

proxy :

the TpProxy

timeout_ms :

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

in_Request :

Used to pass an 'in' argument: <tp:docstring xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <p>A dictionary containing desirable properties, which MUST include <tp:dbus-ref namespace="org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Channel">ChannelType</tp:dbus-ref>. Some properties are defined such that only an exact match makes sense, and connection managers MUST NOT satisfy a request with a channel where that property does not match; some properties are defined such that the connection manager MAY treat the request as merely a hint, and make a best-effort attempt to satisfy it. This is documented separately for each property.</p> <p>If this dictionary contains a property whose semantics are not known to the connection manager, this method MUST fail without side-effects (in particular it must not create a new channel).</p> <tp:rationale> <p>This is necessary if we want to be able to invent properties in future that, when used in a request, are hard requirements rather than just hints. A connection manager that did not know the semantics of those properties could incorrectly return a new channel that did not satisfy the requirements.</p> </tp:rationale> <p>The connection manager MUST NOT respond successfully, and SHOULD NOT create a new channel or cause any other side-effects, unless it can create a new channel that satisfies the client's requirements.</p> <p>Properties that will be set by this argument need not have write access after the channel has been created - indeed, it is expected that most will be read-only.</p>

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.

<tp:docstring xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <p>Request that channels are ensured to exist.</p> <tp:rationale> <p>The connection manager is in the best position to determine which existing channels could satisfy which requests.</p> </tp:rationale>

proxy :

the TpProxy

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

in_Request :

Used to pass an 'in' argument: <tp:docstring xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <p>A dictionary containing desirable properties, with the same semantics as the corresponding parameter to <tp:member-ref>CreateChannel</tp:member-ref>.</p>

Connect a handler to the signal ChannelClosed.

Emitted when a channel is closed and hence disappears from the <tp:member-ref>Channels</tp:member-ref> property. <tp:rationale> This is redundant with the <tp:dbus-ref namespace="org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Channel">Closed</tp:dbus-ref> signal on the channel itself, but it does provide full change notification for the Channels property. </tp:rationale>

proxy :

callback :

Callback to be called when the signal is received

user_data :

User-supplied data for the callback

destroy :
