WebKitFileChooserRequest

WebKitFileChooserRequest — A request to open a file chooser

Types and Values

Object Hierarchy

    GObject
    ╰── WebKitFileChooserRequest

Description

Whenever the user interacts with an <input type='file' /> HTML element, WebKit will need to show a dialog to choose one or more files to be uploaded to the server along with the rest of the form data. For that to happen in a general way, instead of just opening a GtkFileChooserDialog (which might be not desirable in some cases, such as when an embedding applications prefers to use its own file chooser dialog), WebKit will fire the “run-file-chooser” signal with a WebKitFileChooserRequest object, which will allow the client application to specify the files to be selected, to inspect the details of the request (e.g. if multiple selection should be allowed) and to cancel the request, in case nothing was selected.

In case the client application does not wish to handle this signal, WebKit will provide a default handler which will asynchronously run a regular GtkFileChooserDialog for the user to interact with.

Functions

webkit_file_chooser_request_get_select_multiple ()

gboolean
webkit_file_chooser_request_get_select_multiple
                               (WebKitFileChooserRequest *request);

Determine whether the file chooser associated to this WebKitFileChooserRequest should allow selecting multiple files, which depends on the HTML input element having a 'multiple' attribute defined.

Parameters

Returns

TRUE if the file chooser should allow selecting multiple files or FALSE otherwise.

Since: 1.10


webkit_file_chooser_request_get_mime_types ()

const gchar * const *
webkit_file_chooser_request_get_mime_types
                               (WebKitFileChooserRequest *request);

Get the list of MIME types the file chooser dialog should handle, in the format specified in RFC 2046 for "media types". Its contents depend on the value of the 'accept' attribute for HTML input elements. This function should normally be called before presenting the file chooser dialog to the user, to decide whether to allow the user to select multiple files at once or only one.

Parameters

Returns

a NULL-terminated array of strings if a list of accepted MIME types is defined or NULL otherwise, meaning that any MIME type should be accepted. This array and its contents are owned by WebKitGTK+ and should not be modified or freed.

[array zero-terminated=1][transfer none]

Since: 1.10


webkit_file_chooser_request_get_mime_types_filter ()

GtkFileFilter *
webkit_file_chooser_request_get_mime_types_filter
                               (WebKitFileChooserRequest *request);

Get the filter currently associated with the request, ready to be used by GtkFileChooser. This function should normally be called before presenting the file chooser dialog to the user, to decide whether to apply a filter so the user would not be allowed to select files with other MIME types.

See webkit_file_chooser_request_get_mime_types() if you are interested in getting the list of accepted MIME types.

Parameters

Returns

a GtkFileFilter if a list of accepted MIME types is defined or NULL otherwise. The returned object is owned by WebKitGTK+ should not be modified or freed.

[transfer none]

Since: 1.10


webkit_file_chooser_request_get_selected_files ()

const gchar * const *
webkit_file_chooser_request_get_selected_files
                               (WebKitFileChooserRequest *request);

Get the list of selected files currently associated to the request. Initially, the return value of this method contains any files selected in previous file chooser requests for this HTML input element. Once webkit_file_chooser_request_select_files, the value will reflect whatever files are given.

This function should normally be called only before presenting the file chooser dialog to the user, to decide whether to perform some extra action, like pre-selecting the files from a previous request.

Parameters

Returns

a NULL-terminated array of strings if there are selected files associated with the request or NULL otherwise. This array and its contents are owned by WebKitGTK+ and should not be modified or freed.

[array zero-terminated=1][transfer none]

Since: 1.10


webkit_file_chooser_request_select_files ()

void
webkit_file_chooser_request_select_files
                               (WebKitFileChooserRequest *request,
                                const gchar * const *files);

Ask WebKit to select local files for upload and complete the request.

Parameters

files

a NULL-terminated array of strings, containing paths to local files.

[array zero-terminated=1][transfer none]
