Xfconf Library Core

Xfconf Library Core — Init routines and core functionality for libxfconf

Functions

Description

Before libxfconf can be used, it must be initialized by calling xfconf_init(). To free resources used by the library, call xfconf_shutdown(). These calls are "recursive": multiple calls to xfconf_init() are allowed, but each call must be matched by a separate call to xfconf_shutdown() to really free the library's resources.

Functions

xfconf_init ()

gboolean
xfconf_init (GError **error);

Initializes the Xfconf library. Can be called multiple times with no adverse effects.

Parameters

error

An error return.

 

Returns

TRUE if the library was initialized succesfully, FALSE on error. If there is an error error will be set.


xfconf_shutdown ()

void
xfconf_shutdown (void);

Shuts down and frees any resources consumed by the Xfconf library. If xfconf_init() is called multiple times, xfconf_shutdown() must be called an equal number of times to shut down the library.


xfconf_named_struct_register ()

void
xfconf_named_struct_register (const gchar *struct_name,
                              guint n_members,
                              const GType *member_types);

Registers a named struct for use with xfconf_channel_get_named_struct() and xfconf_channel_set_named_struct().

Parameters

struct_name

The unique name of the struct to register.

 

n_members

The number of data members in the struct.

 

member_types

An array of the GTypes of the struct members.

 

xfconf_array_free ()

void
xfconf_array_free (GPtrArray *arr);

Properly frees a GPtrArray structure containing a list of GValues. This will also cause the contents of the values to be freed as well.

Parameters

arr

A GPtrArray of GValues.
