Description

The functions and objects described here make working with GTK+ and GIO more convenient.

GtkMountOperation is needed when mounting volumes: It is an implementation of GMountOperation that can be used with GIO functions for mounting volumes such as g_file_mount_enclosing_volume(), g_file_mount_mountable(), g_volume_mount(), g_mount_unmount_with_operation() and others.

When necessary, GtkMountOperation shows dialogs to ask for passwords, questions or show processes blocking unmount.

gtk_show_uri() is a convenient way to launch applications for URIs.

Another object that is worth mentioning in this context is GdkAppLaunchContext, which provides visual feedback when lauching applications.

Details

struct GtkMountOperation

struct GtkMountOperation;

This should not be accessed directly. Use the accessor functions below.


gtk_mount_operation_new ()

GMountOperation *   gtk_mount_operation_new             (GtkWindow *parent);

Creates a new GtkMountOperation

parent :

transient parent of the window, or NULL. [allow-none]

Returns :

a new GtkMountOperation

Since 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_is_showing ()

gboolean            gtk_mount_operation_is_showing      (GtkMountOperation *op);

Returns whether the GtkMountOperation is currently displaying a window.

op :

a GtkMountOperation

Returns :

TRUE if op is currently displaying a window

Since 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_set_parent ()

void                gtk_mount_operation_set_parent      (GtkMountOperation *op,
                                                         GtkWindow *parent);

Sets the transient parent for windows shown by the GtkMountOperation.

op :

a GtkMountOperation

parent :

transient parent of the window, or NULL. [allow-none]

Since 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_get_parent ()

GtkWindow *         gtk_mount_operation_get_parent      (GtkMountOperation *op);

Gets the transient parent used by the GtkMountOperation

op :

a GtkMountOperation

Returns :

the transient parent for windows shown by op. [transfer none]

Since 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_set_screen ()

void                gtk_mount_operation_set_screen      (GtkMountOperation *op,
                                                         GdkScreen *screen);

Sets the screen to show windows of the GtkMountOperation on.

op :

a GtkMountOperation

screen :

a GdkScreen

Since 2.14


gtk_mount_operation_get_screen ()

GdkScreen *         gtk_mount_operation_get_screen      (GtkMountOperation *op);

Gets the screen on which windows of the GtkMountOperation will be shown.

op :

a GtkMountOperation

Returns :

the screen on which windows of op are shown. [transfer none]

Since 2.14


gtk_show_uri ()

gboolean            gtk_show_uri                        (GdkScreen *screen,
                                                         const gchar *uri,
                                                         guint32 timestamp,
                                                         GError **error);

This is a convenience function for launching the default application to show the uri. The uri must be of a form understood by GIO. Typical examples are

file:///home/gnome/pict.jpg
http://www.gnome.org
mailto:me@gnome.org

Ideally the timestamp is taken from the event triggering the gtk_show_uri() call. If timestamp is not known you can take GDK_CURRENT_TIME.

This function can be used as a replacement for gnome_vfs_url_show() and gnome_url_show().

screen :

screen to show the uri on or NULL for the default screen. [allow-none]

uri :

the uri to show

timestamp :

a timestamp to prevent focus stealing.

error :

a GError that is returned in case of errors

Returns :

TRUE on success, FALSE on error.

Since 2.14
