Functions

thunar_file_monitor_get_default ()

ThunarFileMonitor *
thunar_file_monitor_get_default (void);

Returns a reference to the default ThunarFileMonitor instance. The ThunarFileMonitor default instance can be used to monitor the lifecycle of all currently existing ThunarFile instances. The ::file-changed and ::file-destroyed signals will be emitted whenever any of the currently existing ThunarFiles is changed or destroyed.

The caller is responsible to free the returned instance using g_object_unref() when no longer needed.

Returns

the default ThunarFileMonitor instance.


thunar_file_monitor_file_changed ()

void
thunar_file_monitor_file_changed (ThunarFile *file);

Emits the ::file-changed signal on the default ThunarFileMonitor (if any). This method should only be used by ThunarFile.

Parameters

a ThunarFile.

 

thunar_file_monitor_file_destroyed ()

thunar_file_monitor_file_destroyed (ThunarFile *file);

Signal Details

The “file-changed” signal

void
user_function (ThunarFileMonitor *file_monitor,
               ThunarFile        *file,
               gpointer           user_data)

This signal is emitted on file_monitor whenever any of the currently existing ThunarFile instances changes. file identifies the instance that changed.

Parameters

the default ThunarFileMonitor.

 

file

the ThunarFile that changed.

The “file-destroyed” signal

void
user_function (ThunarFileMonitor *file_monitor,
               ThunarFile        *file,
               gpointer           user_data)

This signal is emitted on file_monitor whenever any of the currently existing ThunarFile instances is about to be destroyed. file identifies the instance that is about to be destroyed.

Note that this signal is only emitted if file is explicitly destroyed, i.e. because Thunar noticed that it was removed from disk, it is not emitted when the last reference on file is released.

Parameters

the default ThunarFileMonitor.

 

file

the ThunarFile that is about to be destroyed.

 

user_data

user data set when the signal handler was connected.
