pub fn show_uri(
    screen: Option<&Screen>,
    uri: &str,
    timestamp: u32
) -> Result<(), Error>
Expand description

A convenience function for launching the default application to show the uri. Like show_uri_on_window(), but takes a screen as transient parent instead of a window.

Note that this function is deprecated as it does not pass the necessary information for helpers to parent their dialog properly, when run from sandboxed applications for example.

Deprecated since 3.22

Use show_uri_on_window() instead.


screen to show the uri on or None for the default screen


the uri to show


a timestamp to prevent focus stealing


true on success, false on error
