Description

Functions

thunar_application_get ()

ThunarApplication *
thunar_application_get (void);

Returns the global shared ThunarApplication instance. This method takes a reference on the global instance for the caller, so you must call g_object_unref() on it when done.

Returns

the shared ThunarApplication instance.


thunar_application_quit ()

void
thunar_application_quit (ThunarApplication *application);

Attempts to exit daemon mode(required if application is on hold) and leaves the gtk main loop

Parameters

application

a ThunarApplication.

 

thunar_application_get_daemon ()

gboolean
thunar_application_get_daemon (ThunarApplication *application);

Returns TRUE if application is in daemon mode.

Parameters

application

a ThunarApplication.

 

Returns

TRUE if application is in daemon mode.


thunar_application_set_daemon ()

void
thunar_application_set_daemon (ThunarApplication *application,
                               gboolean daemon);

If daemon is TRUE, application will be set into daemon mode.

Parameters

application

a ThunarApplication.

 

daemonize

TRUE to set application into daemon mode.

 

thunar_application_get_windows ()

GList *
thunar_application_get_windows (ThunarApplication *application);

Returns the list of regular ThunarWindows currently handled by application . The returned list is owned by the caller and must be freed using g_list_free().

Parameters

application

a ThunarApplication.

 

Returns

the list of regular ThunarWindows in application .


thunar_application_has_windows ()

gboolean
thunar_application_has_windows (ThunarApplication *application);

Returns TRUE if application controls atleast one window.

Parameters

application

a ThunarApplication.

 

Returns

TRUE if application controls atleast one window.

Parameters

application

a ThunarApplication.

If the window has no transient window, it will also create a new GtkWindowGroup for this window. This will make different windows work independant (think gtk_dialog_run).

Parameters

application

a ThunarApplication.

 

window

a GtkWindow.
