Description

The implementations of TpProxy subclasses and "mixin" functions need access to the underlying dbus-glib objects used to implement the TpProxy API.

Mixin functions to implement particular D-Bus interfaces should usually be auto-generated, by copying tools/glib-client-gen.py from telepathy-glib.

Details

tp_proxy_add_interface_by_id ()

DBusGProxy *        tp_proxy_add_interface_by_id        (TpProxy *self,
                                                         GQuark iface);

Declare that this proxy supports a given interface.

To use methods and signals of that interface, either call tp_proxy_get_interface_by_id() to get the DBusGProxy, or use the tp_cli_* wrapper functions (strongly recommended).

If the interface is the proxy's "main interface", or has already been added, then do nothing.

self :

the TpProxy, which must not have become "invalidated".

iface :

quark representing the interface to be added

Returns :

either NULL or a borrowed DBusGProxy corresponding to iface, depending on implementation details. To reliably borrow the DBusGProxy, use tp_proxy_get_interface_by_id(). (This method should probably have returned void; sorry.)

Since 0.7.1


tp_proxy_add_interfaces ()

void                tp_proxy_add_interfaces             (TpProxy *self,
                                                         const gchar * const *interfaces);

Declare that this proxy supports the given interfaces. Equivalent to calling g_quark_from_string() followed by tp_proxy_add_interface_by_id() for each of the interface names.

self :

the TpProxy, which must not have become "invalidated".

interfaces :

the names of the interfaces to be added

Since 0.14.4


tp_proxy_borrow_interface_by_id ()

DBusGProxy *        tp_proxy_borrow_interface_by_id     (TpProxy *self,
                                                         GQuark iface,
                                                         GError **error);

Warning

tp_proxy_borrow_interface_by_id is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code. Since 0.19.9. New code should use tp_proxy_get_interface_by_id() instead.

self :

the TpProxy

iface :

quark representing the interface required

error :

used to raise an error in the TP_DBUS_ERRORS domain if iface is invalid, self has been invalidated or self does not implement iface

Returns :

a borrowed reference to a DBusGProxy for which the bus name and object path are the same as for self, but the interface is as given (or NULL if an error is raised). The reference is only valid as long as self is.

Since 0.7.1


tp_proxy_get_interface_by_id ()

DBusGProxy *        tp_proxy_get_interface_by_id        (TpProxy *self,
                                                         GQuark iface,
                                                         GError **error);

self :

the TpProxy

iface :

quark representing the interface required

error :

used to raise an error in the TP_DBUS_ERRORS domain if iface is invalid, self has been invalidated or self does not implement iface

Returns :

a borrowed reference to a DBusGProxy for which the bus name and object path are the same as for self, but the interface is as given (or NULL if an error is raised). The reference is only valid as long as self is.

Since 0.19.9


tp_proxy_invalidate ()

void                tp_proxy_invalidate                 (TpProxy *self,
                                                         const GError *error);

Mark self as having been invalidated - no further calls will work, and if not already invalidated, the "invalidated" signal will be emitted with the given error.

self :

a proxy

error :

an error causing the invalidation

Since 0.7.1


TpProxyInterfaceAddedCb ()

void                (*TpProxyInterfaceAddedCb)          (TpProxy *self,
                                                         guint quark,
                                                         DBusGProxy *proxy,
                                                         gpointer unused);

The signature of a "interface-added" signal callback.

self :

the proxy

quark :

a quark whose string value is the interface being added

proxy :

the DBusGProxy for the added interface

unused :

unused

Since 0.7.1


tp_proxy_or_subclass_hook_on_interface_add ()

void                tp_proxy_or_subclass_hook_on_interface_add
                                                        (GType proxy_or_subclass,
                                                         TpProxyInterfaceAddedCb callback);

Arrange for callback to be connected to "interface-added" during the TpProxy constructor. This is done sufficiently early that it will see the signal for the default interface (interface member of TpProxyClass), if any, being added. The intended use is for the callback to call dbus_g_proxy_add_signal() on the new DBusGProxy.

Since 0.7.6, to ensure correct overriding of interfaces that might be added to telepathy-glib, before calling this function you should call tp_proxy_init_known_interfaces, tp_connection_init_known_interfaces, tp_channel_init_known_interfaces etc. as appropriate for the subclass.

proxy_or_subclass :

The GType of TpProxy or a subclass

callback :

A signal handler for "interface-added"

Since 0.7.1


tp_proxy_init_known_interfaces ()

void                tp_proxy_init_known_interfaces      (void);

Ensure that the known interfaces for TpProxy have been set up. This is done automatically when necessary, but for correct overriding of library interfaces by local extensions, you should call this function before calling tp_proxy_or_subclass_hook_on_interface_add().

Functions like tp_connection_init_known_interfaces and tp_channel_init_known_interfaces do this automatically.

Since 0.7.6


tp_proxy_subclass_add_error_mapping ()

void                tp_proxy_subclass_add_error_mapping (GType proxy_subclass,
                                                         const gchar *static_prefix,
                                                         GQuark domain,
                                                         GType code_enum_type);

Register a mapping from D-Bus errors received from the given proxy subclass to GError instances.

When a D-Bus error is received, the TpProxy code checks for error mappings registered for the class of the proxy receiving the error, then for all of its parent classes.

If there is an error mapping for which the D-Bus error name starts with the mapping's static_prefix, the proxy will check the corresponding code_enum_type for a value whose value_nick is the rest of the D-Bus error name (with the leading dot removed). If there isn't such a value, it will continue to try other error mappings.

If a suitable error mapping and code are found, the GError that is raised will have its error domain set to the domain from the error mapping, and its error code taken from the enum represented by the code_enum_type.

If no suitable error mapping or code is found, the GError will have error domain TP_DBUS_ERRORS and error code TP_DBUS_ERROR_UNKNOWN_REMOTE_ERROR.

proxy_subclass :

The GType of a subclass of TpProxy (which must not be TpProxy itself)

static_prefix :

A prefix for D-Bus error names, not including the trailing dot (which must remain valid forever, and should usually be in static storage)

domain :

A quark representing the corresponding GError domain

code_enum_type :

The type of a subclass of GEnumClass

Since 0.7.1


tp_proxy_dbus_g_proxy_claim_for_signal_adding ()

gboolean            tp_proxy_dbus_g_proxy_claim_for_signal_adding
                                                        (DBusGProxy *proxy);

Attempt to "claim" a DBusGProxy for addition of signal signatures. If this function has not been called on proxy before, TRUE is returned, and the caller may safely call dbus_g_proxy_add_signal() on proxy. If this function has already been caled, FALSE is returned, and the caller may not safely call dbus_g_proxy_add_signal().

This is intended for use by auto-generated signal-adding functions, to allow interfaces provided as local extensions to override those in telepathy-glib without causing assertion failures.

proxy :

a DBusGProxy

Returns :

TRUE if it is safe to call dbus_g_proxy_add_signal()

Since 0.7.6


TpProxyInvokeFunc ()

void                (*TpProxyInvokeFunc)                (TpProxy *self,
                                                         GError *error,
                                                         GValueArray *args,
                                                         GCallback callback,
                                                         gpointer user_data,
                                                         GObject *weak_object);

Signature of a callback invoked by the TpProxy machinery after a D-Bus method call has succeeded or failed. It is responsible for calling the user-supplied callback.

Because parts of dbus-glib aren't reentrant, this callback may be called from an idle handler shortly after the method call reply is received, rather than from the callback for the reply.

At most one of args and error can be non-NULL (implementations may assert this). args and error may both be NULL if a method with no "out" arguments (i.e. a method that returns nothing) was called successfully.

The TpProxyInvokeFunc must call callback with user_data, weak_object, and appropriate arguments derived from error and args. It is responsible for freeing error and args, if their ownership has not been transferred.

self :

the TpProxy on which the D-Bus method was invoked

error :

NULL if the method call succeeded, or a non-NULL error if the method call failed

args :

array of "out" arguments (return values) for the D-Bus method, or NULL if an error occurred or if there were no "out" arguments

callback :

the callback that should be invoked, as passed to tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_new()

user_data :

user-supplied data to pass to the callback, as passed to tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_new()

weak_object :

user-supplied object to pass to the callback, as passed to tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_new()

Since 0.7.1

Allocate a new pending call structure. After calling this function, the caller must start an asynchronous D-Bus call and give the resulting DBusGProxyCall to the pending call object using tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_take_pending_call().

If dbus-glib gets a reply to the call before it's cancelled, the caller must arrange for tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_take_results() to be called with the results (the intention is for this to be done immediately after dbus_g_proxy_end_call in the callback supplied to dbus-glib).

When dbus-glib discards its reference to the user_data supplied in the asynchronous D-Bus call (i.e. after the call is cancelled or a reply arrives), tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_completed must be called (the intention is for the TpProxyPendingCall to be the user_data in the async call, and for tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_completed to be the GDestroyNotify passed to the same async call).

This function is for use by TpProxy subclass implementations only, and should usually only be called from code generated by tools/glib-client-gen.py.

self :

a proxy

iface :

a quark whose string value is the D-Bus interface

member :

the name of the method being called

iface_proxy :

the interface-specific DBusGProxy for iface

invoke_callback :

an implementation of TpProxyInvokeFunc which will invoke callback with appropriate arguments

callback :

a callback to be called when the call completes

user_data :

user-supplied data for the callback

destroy :

user-supplied destructor for the data

weak_object :

if not NULL, a GObject which will be weakly referenced by the signal connection - if it is destroyed, the pending call will automatically be cancelled

cancel_must_raise :

if TRUE, the invoke_callback will be run with error TP_DBUS_ERROR_CANCELLED if the call is cancelled by a call to tp_proxy_pending_call_cancel() or by destruction of the weak_object; if FALSE, the invoke_callback will not be run at all in these cases

Returns :

a new pending call structure

tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_completed ()

void                tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_completed  (gpointer p);

Indicate that dbus-glib has finished with this pending call, and therefore either tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_take_results() has already been called, or it will never be called. See tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_new().

The signature is chosen to match GDestroyNotify.

This function is for use by TpProxy subclass implementations only, and should usually only be called from code generated by tools/glib-client-gen.py.

Set the "out" arguments (return values) from this pending call. See also tp_proxy_pending_call_v0_new().

This function is for use by TpProxy subclass implementations only, and should usually only be called from code generated by tools/glib-client-gen.py.

pc :

A pending call on which this function has not yet been called

error :

NULL if the call was successful, or an error (whose ownership is taken over by the pending call object). Because of dbus-glib idiosyncrasies, this must be the error produced by dbus-glib, not a copy.

args :

NULL if the call failed or had no "out" arguments, or an array of "out" arguments (whose ownership is taken over by the pending call object)

Allocate a new structure representing a signal connection, and connect to the signal, arranging for invoke_callback to be called when it arrives.

This function is for use by TpProxy subclass implementations only, and should usually only be called from code generated by tools/glib-client-gen.py.

self :

a proxy

iface :

a quark whose string value is the D-Bus interface

member :

the name of the signal to which we're connecting

expected_types :

an array of expected GTypes for the arguments, terminated by G_TYPE_INVALID

collect_args :

a callback to be given to dbus_g_proxy_connect_signal(), which must marshal the arguments into a GValueArray and use them to call tp_proxy_signal_connection_v0_take_results(); this callback is not guaranteed to be called by future versions of telepathy-glib, which might be able to implement its functionality internally. If no arguments are expected at all (expected_types = { G_TYPE_INVALID }) then this callback should instead be NULL

invoke_callback :

a function which will be called with error = NULL, which should invoke callback with user_data, weak_object and other appropriate arguments taken from args

callback :

user callback to be invoked by invoke_callback

user_data :

user-supplied data for the callback

destroy :

user-supplied destructor for the data, which will be called when the signal connection is disconnected for any reason, or will be called before this function returns if an error occurs

weak_object :

if not NULL, a GObject which will be weakly referenced by the signal connection - if it is destroyed, the signal connection will automatically be disconnected

error :

If not NULL, used to raise an error if NULL is returned

Returns :

a signal connection structure, or NULL if the proxy does not have the desired interface or has become invalid
