pub struct SignalGroup { /* private fields */ }
Expand description

SignalGroup manages to simplify the process of connecting many signals to a Object as a group. As such there is no API to disconnect a signal from the group.

In particular, this allows you to:

  • Change the target instance, which automatically causes disconnection of the signals from the old instance and connecting to the new instance.
  • Block and unblock signals as a group
  • Ensuring that blocked state transfers across target instances.

One place you might want to use such a structure is with GtkTextView and GtkTextBuffer. Often times, you’ll need to connect to many signals on GtkTextBuffer from a GtkTextView subclass. This allows you to create a signal group during instance construction, simply bind the GtkTextView:buffer property to property::SignalGroup::target and connect all the signals you need. When the GtkTextView:buffer property changes all of the signals will be transitioned correctly.

ObjectExt

Implementations

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

Creates a new SignalGroup for target instances of target_type.

target_type

the GType of the target instance.

Returns

a new SignalGroup

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

Blocks all signal handlers managed by self so they will not be called during any signal emissions. Must be unblocked exactly the same number of times it has been blocked to become active again.

This blocked state will be kept across changes of the target instance.

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

Gets the target instance used when connecting signals.

Returns

The target instance

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

Sets the target instance used when connecting signals. Any signal that has been registered with g_signal_group_connect_object() or similar functions will be connected to this object.

If the target instance was previously set, signals will be disconnected from that object prior to connecting to target.

target

The target instance used when connecting signals.

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

Unblocks all signal handlers managed by self so they will be called again during any signal emissions unless it is blocked again. Must be unblocked exactly the same number of times it has been blocked to become active again.

Available on crate features v2_74 and v2_72 only.

The GType of the target property.

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

Connects closure to the signal detailed_signal on property::SignalGroup::target.

You cannot connect a signal handler after property::SignalGroup::target has been set.

detailed_signal

a string of the form signal-name with optional ::signal-detail

closure

the closure to connect.

after

whether the handler should be called before or after the default handler of the signal.

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

Connects c_handler to the signal detailed_signal on the target instance of self.

You cannot connect a signal handler after property::SignalGroup::target has been set.

detailed_signal

a string of the form “signal-name::detail”

c_handler

the GCallback to connect

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

Like Self::connect but doesn’t require a Send+Sync closure. Signal emission will panic if the signal on the current target is emitted from a different thread from the thread that connected the signal.

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

This signal is emitted when property::SignalGroup::target is set to a new value other than None. It is similar to signal::Object::notify on target except it will not emit when property::SignalGroup::target is None and also allows for receiving the Object without a data-race.

instance

a Object containing the new value for property::SignalGroup::target

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

Like Self::connect_bind but doesn’t require a Send+Sync closure. Signal emission will panic if the signal is emitted from a different thread from the thread that connected the signal.

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

This signal is emitted when the target instance of self_ is set to a new Object.

This signal will only be emitted if the previous target of self_ is non-None.

Available on crate feature v2_74 only.

Like Self::connect_unbind but doesn’t require a Send+Sync closure. Signal emission will panic if the signal is emitted from a different thread from the thread that connected the signal.
