Trait containing all Application methods.

Implementors

Application

Required methods

fn activate(&self)

Activates the application.

In essence, this results in the Application::activate signal being emitted in the primary instance.

The application must be registered before calling this function.

fn add_main_option<'a, P: Into<Option<&'a str>>>(
    &self,
    long_name: &str,
    short_name: Char,
    flags: OptionFlags,
    arg: OptionArg,
    description: &str,
    arg_description: P
)

Add an option to be handled by self.

Calling this function is the equivalent of calling ApplicationExt::add_main_option_entries with a single glib::OptionEntry that has its arg_data member set to None.

The parsed arguments will be packed into a glib::VariantDict which is passed to Application::handle-local-options. If ApplicationFlags::HandlesCommandLine is set, then it will also be sent to the primary instance. See ApplicationExt::add_main_option_entries for more details.

See glib::OptionEntry for more documentation of the arguments.

long_name

the long name of an option used to specify it in a commandline

short_name

the short name of an option

flags

flags from glib::OptionFlags

arg

the type of the option, as a glib::OptionArg

description

the description for the option in --help output

arg_description

the placeholder to use for the extra argument parsed by the option in --help output

fn bind_busy_property<P: IsA<Object>>(&self, object: &P, property: &str)

Marks self as busy (see ApplicationExt::mark_busy) while property on object is true.

The binding holds a reference to self while it is active, but not to object. Instead, the binding is destroyed when object is finalized.

Feature: v2_44

object

a gobject::Object

property

the name of a boolean property of object

fn get_application_id(&self) -> Option<GString>

Gets the unique identifier for self.

Returns

the identifier for self, owned by self

fn get_dbus_object_path(&self) -> Option<GString>

Gets the D-Bus object path being used by the application, or None.

If Application is using its D-Bus backend then this function will return the D-Bus object path that Application is using. If the application is the primary instance then there is an object published at this path. If the application is not the primary instance then the result of this function is undefined.

If Application is not using D-Bus then this function will return None. This includes the situation where the D-Bus backend would normally be in use but we were unable to connect to the bus.

This function must not be called before the application has been registered. See ApplicationExt::get_is_registered.

Returns

the object path, or None

fn get_flags(&self) -> ApplicationFlags

Gets the flags for self.

See ApplicationFlags.

Returns

the flags for self

fn get_inactivity_timeout(&self) -> u32

Gets the current inactivity timeout for the application.

This is the amount of time (in milliseconds) after the last call to ApplicationExt::release before the application stops running.

Returns

the timeout, in milliseconds

fn get_is_busy(&self) -> bool

Gets the application's current busy state, as set through ApplicationExt::mark_busy or ApplicationExt::bind_busy_property.

Feature: v2_44

Returns

true if self is currenty marked as busy

fn get_is_registered(&self) -> bool

Checks if self is registered.

An application is registered if ApplicationExt::register has been successfully called.

Returns

true if self is registered

fn get_is_remote(&self) -> bool

Checks if self is remote.

If self is remote then it means that another instance of application already exists (the 'primary' instance). Calls to perform actions on self will result in the actions being performed by the primary instance.

The value of this property cannot be accessed before ApplicationExt::register has been called. See ApplicationExt::get_is_registered.

Returns

true if self is remote

fn get_resource_base_path(&self) -> Option<GString>

Gets the resource base path of self.

See ApplicationExt::set_resource_base_path for more information.

Returns

the base resource path, if one is set

fn hold(&self)

Increases the use count of self.

Use this function to indicate that the application has a reason to continue to run. For example, ApplicationExt::hold is called by GTK+ when a toplevel window is on the screen.

To cancel the hold, call ApplicationExt::release.

fn mark_busy(&self)

Increases the busy count of self.

Use this function to indicate that the application is busy, for instance while a long running operation is pending.

The busy state will be exposed to other processes, so a session shell will use that information to indicate the state to the user (e.g. with a spinner).

To cancel the busy indication, use ApplicationExt::unmark_busy.

fn open(&self, files: &[File], hint: &str)

Opens the given files.

In essence, this results in the Application::open signal being emitted in the primary instance.

n_files must be greater than zero.

hint is simply passed through to the ::open signal. It is intended to be used by applications that have multiple modes for opening files (eg: "view" vs "edit", etc). Unless you have a need for this functionality, you should use "".

The application must be registered before calling this function and it must have the ApplicationFlags::HandlesOpen flag set.

files

an array of GFiles to open

n_files

the length of the files array

hint

a hint (or ""), but never None

fn quit(&self)

Immediately quits the application.

Upon return to the mainloop, Application::run will return, calling only the 'shutdown' function before doing so.

The hold count is ignored. Take care if your code has called ApplicationExt::hold on the application and is therefore still expecting it to exist. (Note that you may have called ApplicationExt::hold indirectly, for example through gtk_application_add_window.)

The result of calling Application::run again after it returns is unspecified.

fn register<'a, P: IsA<Cancellable> + 'a, Q: Into<Option<&'a P>>>(
    &self,
    cancellable: Q
) -> Result<(), Error>

Attempts registration of the application.

This is the point at which the application discovers if it is the primary instance or merely acting as a remote for an already-existing primary instance. This is implemented by attempting to acquire the application identifier as a unique bus name on the session bus using GDBus.

If there is no application ID or if ApplicationFlags::NonUnique was given, then this process will always become the primary instance.

Due to the internal architecture of GDBus, method calls can be dispatched at any time (even if a main loop is not running). For this reason, you must ensure that any object paths that you wish to register are registered before calling this function.

If the application has already been registered then true is returned with no work performed.

The Application::startup signal is emitted if registration succeeds and self is the primary instance (including the non-unique case).

In the event of an error (such as cancellable being cancelled, or a failure to connect to the session bus), false is returned and error is set appropriately.

Note: the return value of this function is not an indicator that this instance is or is not the primary instance of the application. See ApplicationExt::get_is_remote for that.

cancellable

a Cancellable, or None

Returns

true if registration succeeded

fn release(&self)

Decrease the use count of self.

When the use count reaches zero, the application will stop running.

Never call this function except to cancel the effect of a previous call to ApplicationExt::hold.

fn send_notification<'a, P: Into<Option<&'a str>>>(
    &self,
    id: P,
    notification: &Notification
)

Sends a notification on behalf of self to the desktop shell. There is no guarantee that the notification is displayed immediately, or even at all.

Notifications may persist after the application exits. It will be D-Bus-activated when the notification or one of its actions is activated.

Modifying notification after this call has no effect. However, the object can be reused for a later call to this function.

id may be any string that uniquely identifies the event for the application. It does not need to be in any special format. For example, "new-message" might be appropriate for a notification about new messages.

If a previous notification was sent with the same id, it will be replaced with notification and shown again as if it was a new notification. This works even for notifications sent from a previous execution of the application, as long as id is the same string.

id may be None, but it is impossible to replace or withdraw notifications without an id.

If notification is no longer relevant, it can be withdrawn with ApplicationExt::withdraw_notification.

id

id of the notification, or None

notification

the Notification to send

fn set_application_id<'a, P: Into<Option<&'a str>>>(&self, application_id: P)

Sets the unique identifier for self.

The application id can only be modified if self has not yet been registered.

If non-None, the application id must be valid. See Application::id_is_valid.

application_id

the identifier for self

fn set_default(&self)

Sets or unsets the default application for the process, as returned by Application::get_default.

This function does not take its own reference on self. If self is destroyed then the default application will revert back to None.

fn set_flags(&self, flags: ApplicationFlags)

Sets the flags for self.

The flags can only be modified if self has not yet been registered.

See ApplicationFlags.

flags

the flags for self

fn set_inactivity_timeout(&self, inactivity_timeout: u32)

Sets the current inactivity timeout for the application.

This is the amount of time (in milliseconds) after the last call to ApplicationExt::release before the application stops running.

This call has no side effects of its own. The value set here is only used for next time ApplicationExt::release drops the use count to zero. Any timeouts currently in progress are not impacted.

inactivity_timeout

the timeout, in milliseconds

fn set_option_context_description<'a, P: Into<Option<&'a str>>>(
    &self,
    description: P
)

Adds a description to the self option context.

See glib::OptionContext::set_description for more information.

Feature: v2_56

description

a string to be shown in --help output after the list of options, or None

fn set_option_context_parameter_string<'a, P: Into<Option<&'a str>>>(
    &self,
    parameter_string: P
)

Sets the parameter string to be used by the commandline handling of self.

This function registers the argument to be passed to glib::OptionContext::new when the internal glib::OptionContext of self is created.

See glib::OptionContext::new for more information about parameter_string.

Feature: v2_56

parameter_string

a string which is displayed in the first line of --help output, after the usage summary programname [OPTION...].

fn set_option_context_summary<'a, P: Into<Option<&'a str>>>(&self, summary: P)

Adds a summary to the self option context.

See glib::OptionContext::set_summary for more information.

Feature: v2_56

summary

a string to be shown in --help output before the list of options, or None

fn set_resource_base_path<'a, P: Into<Option<&'a str>>>(&self, resource_path: P)

Sets (or unsets) the base resource path of self.

The path is used to automatically load various [application resources][gresource] such as menu layouts and action descriptions. The various types of resources will be found at fixed names relative to the given base path.

By default, the resource base path is determined from the application ID by prefixing '/' and replacing each '.' with '/'. This is done at the time that the Application object is constructed. Changes to the application ID after that point will not have an impact on the resource base path.

As an example, if the application has an ID of "org.example.app" then the default resource base path will be "/org/example/app". If this is a GtkApplication (and you have not manually changed the path) then Gtk will then search for the menus of the application at "/org/example/app/gtk/menus.ui".

See Resource for more information about adding resources to your application.

You can disable automatic resource loading functionality by setting the path to None.

Changing the resource base path once the application is running is not recommended. The point at which the resource path is consulted for forming paths for various purposes is unspecified. When writing a sub-class of Application you should either set the Application:resource-base-path property at construction time, or call this function during the instance initialization. Alternatively, you can call this function in the ApplicationClass.startup virtual function, before chaining up to the parent implementation.

resource_path

the resource path to use

fn unbind_busy_property<P: IsA<Object>>(&self, object: &P, property: &str)

Destroys a binding between property and the busy state of self that was previously created with ApplicationExt::bind_busy_property.

Feature: v2_44

object

a gobject::Object

property

the name of a boolean property of object

fn unmark_busy(&self)

Decreases the busy count of self.

When the busy count reaches zero, the new state will be propagated to other processes.

This function must only be called to cancel the effect of a previous call to ApplicationExt::mark_busy.

fn withdraw_notification(&self, id: &str)

Withdraws a notification that was sent with ApplicationExt::send_notification.

This call does nothing if a notification with id doesn't exist or the notification was never sent.

This function works even for notifications sent in previous executions of this application, as long id is the same as it was for the sent notification.

Note that notifications are dismissed when the user clicks on one of the buttons in a notification or triggers its default action, so there is no need to explicitly withdraw the notification in that case.

id

id of a previously sent notification

fn set_property_action_group<P: IsA<ActionGroup> + SetValueOptional>(
    &self,
    action_group: Option<&P>
)

fn connect_activate<F: Fn(&Self) + 'static>(&self, f: F) -> SignalHandlerId

The ::activate signal is emitted on the primary instance when an activation occurs. See ApplicationExt::activate.

fn connect_command_line<F: Fn(&Self, &ApplicationCommandLine) -> i32 + 'static>(
    &self,
    f: F
) -> SignalHandlerId

The ::command-line signal is emitted on the primary instance when a commandline is not handled locally. See Application::run and the ApplicationCommandLine documentation for more information.

command_line

a ApplicationCommandLine representing the passed commandline

Returns

An integer that is set as the exit status for the calling process. See ApplicationCommandLineExt::set_exit_status.

fn connect_shutdown<F: Fn(&Self) + 'static>(&self, f: F) -> SignalHandlerId

The ::shutdown signal is emitted only on the registered primary instance immediately after the main loop terminates.

fn connect_startup<F: Fn(&Self) + 'static>(&self, f: F) -> SignalHandlerId

The ::startup signal is emitted on the primary instance immediately after registration. See ApplicationExt::register.

    &self,
    f: F
) -> SignalHandlerId
