#[repr(transparent)]
pub struct DirectoryList { /* private fields */ }
Expand description

DirectoryList is a list model that wraps g_file_enumerate_children_async().

It presents a GListModel and fills it asynchronously with the GFileInfos returned from that function.

Enumeration will start automatically when a the property::DirectoryList::file property is set.

While the DirectoryList is being filled, the property::DirectoryList::loading property will be set to true. You can listen to that property if you want to show information like a Spinner or a “Loading…” text.

If loading fails at any point, the property::DirectoryList::error property will be set to give more indication about the failure.

The GFileInfos returned from a DirectoryList have the “standard::file” attribute set to the GFile they refer to. This way you can get at the file that is referred to in the same way you would via g_file_enumerator_get_child(). This means you do not need access to the DirectoryList, but can access the GFile directly from the GFileInfo when operating with a ListView or similar.

Implements

glib::ObjectExt, gio::prelude::ListModelExt

Implementations

Creates a new DirectoryList.

The DirectoryList is querying the given @file with the given @attributes.

attributes

The attributes to query with

file

The file to query

Returns

a new DirectoryList

Gets the attributes queried on the children.

Returns

The queried attributes

Gets the loading error, if any.

If an error occurs during the loading process, the loading process will finish and this property allows querying the error that happened. This error will persist until a file is loaded again.

An error being set does not mean that no files were loaded, and all successfully queried files will remain in the list.

Returns

The loading error or None if loading finished successfully

Gets the file whose children are currently enumerated.

Returns

The file whose children are enumerated

Returns whether the directory list is monitoring the directory for changes.

Returns

true if the directory is monitored

Returns true if the children enumeration is currently in progress.

Files will be added to @self from time to time while loading is going on. The order in which are added is undefined and may change in between runs.

Returns

true if @self is loading

Sets the @attributes to be enumerated and starts the enumeration.

If @attributes is None, no attributes will be queried, but a list of GFileInfos will still be created.

attributes

the attributes to enumerate

Sets the @file to be enumerated and starts the enumeration.

If @file is None, the result will be an empty list.

file

the GFile to be enumerated

Sets whether the directory list will monitor the directory for changes.

If monitoring is enabled, the ::items-changed signal will be emitted when the directory contents change.

When monitoring is turned on after the initial creation of the directory list, the directory is reloaded to avoid missing files that appeared between the initial loading and when monitoring was turned on.

monitored

true to monitor the directory for changes

Gets the IO priority set via gtk_directory_list_set_io_priority().

Returns

The IO priority.

Sets the IO priority to use while loading directories.

Setting the priority while @self is loading will reprioritize the ongoing load as soon as possible.

The default IO priority is G_PRIORITY_DEFAULT, which is higher than the GTK redraw priority. If you are loading a lot of directories in parallel, lowering it to something like G_PRIORITY_DEFAULT_IDLE may increase responsiveness.

io_priority

IO priority to use

Creates a new builder-pattern struct instance to construct DirectoryList objects.

This method returns an instance of DirectoryListBuilder which can be used to create DirectoryList objects.
