Detailed Description

A D-Bus Connection.

The Connection type is used for D-Bus connections to remote peers such as a message buses. It is a low-level API that offers a lot of flexibility. For instance, it lets you establish a connection over any transport that can by represented as an IOStream.

This class is rarely used directly in D-Bus clients. If you are writing a D-Bus client, it is often easier to use the Gio::DBus::own_name(), Gio::DBus::watch_name() or Gio::DBus::Proxy::create_for_bus() APIs.

Member Typedef Documentation

Signature for slot used in add_filter().

For example,

Glib::RefPtr<Message> on_message_filter(const
message, bool incoming);.

A filter function is passed a Message and expected to return a Message too. Passive filter functions that don't modify the message can simply return the message object. Filter functions that wants to drop a message can simply return 0. And filter function may modify a message by copying it and return the copy.

Signature for slot used in signal_subscribe().

For example,

void on_signal(const Glib::RefPtr<Connection>& connection, const
Glib::ustring& sender_name, const Glib::ustring& object_path, const
Glib::ustring& object_path, const Glib::ustring& interface_name, const
Glib::ustring& signal_name, const Glib::VariantContainerBase& parameters);.

Member Function Documentation

guint Gio::DBus::Connection::add_filter ( const SlotMessageFilter slot)

Adds a message filter.

Filters are handlers that are run on all incoming and outgoing messages, prior to standard dispatch. Filters are run in the order that they were added. The same handler can be added as a filter more than once, in which case it will be run more than once. Filters added during a filter slot won't be run on the message being processed. Filter slots are allowed to modify and even drop messages.

Note that filters are run in a dedicated message handling thread so they can't block and, generally, can't do anything but signal a worker thread. Also note that filters are rarely needed - use API such as send_message_with_reply(), signal_subscribe() or call() instead.

If a filter consumes an incoming message the message is not dispatched anywhere else - not even the standard dispatch machinery (that API such as signal_subscribe() and send_message_with_reply() relies on) will see the message. Similary, if a filter consumes an outgoing message, the message will not be sent to the other peer.

Parameters
slotA filter slot.
Returns
A filter identifier that can be used with remove_filter().
Since glibmm 2.28:
void Gio::DBus::Connection::call ( const Glib::ustring object_path,
const Glib::ustring interface_name,

const Glib::ustring bus_name = {},
int  timeout_msec = -1,
CallFlags  flags = Gio::DBus::CallFlags::NONE,
const Glib::VariantType reply_type = {} 
)

Asynchronously invokes the method_name method on the interface_name D-Bus interface on the remote object at object_path owned by bus_name.

If the connection is closed then the operation will fail with Gio::IO_ERROR_CLOSED. If cancellable is cancelled, the operation will fail with Gio::IO_ERROR_CANCELLED. If parameters contains a value not compatible with the D-Bus protocol, the operation fails with Gio::IO_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT.

If reply_type is non-0 then the reply will be checked for having this type and an error will be raised if it does not match. Said another way, if you give a reply_type then any non-0 return value will be of this type.

This is an asynchronous method. When the operation is finished, callback will be invoked in the thread-default main loop of the thread you are calling this method from. You can then call call_finish() to get the result of the operation. See call_sync() for the synchronous version of this function.

Parameters
object_pathPath of remote object.
interface_nameD-Bus interface to invoke method on.
method_nameThe name of the method to invoke.
parametersA Glib::VariantContainerBase tuple with parameters for the method or 0 if not passing parameters.
slotA SlotAsyncReady to call when the request is satisfied.
cancellableA Cancellable.
bus_nameA unique or well-known bus name or an empty string if the connection is not a message bus connection.
timeout_msecThe timeout in milliseconds, -1 to use the default timeout or G_MAXINT for no timeout.
flagsFlags from the Gio::DBus::CallFlags enumeration.
reply_typeThe expected type of the reply, or 0.

Like call() but also takes a GUnixFDList object.

This method is only available on UNIX.

This is an asynchronous method. When the operation is finished, callback will be invoked in the thread-default main loop of the thread you are calling this method from. You can then call call_with_unix_fd_finish() to get the result of the operation. See call_sync() for the synchronous version of this function.

Synchronously invokes the method_name method on the interface_name D-Bus interface on the remote object at object_path owned by bus_name.

If the connection is closed then the operation will fail with Gio::IO_ERROR_CLOSED. If cancellable is cancelled, the operation will fail with Gio::IO_ERROR_CANCELLED. If parameters contains a value not compatible with the D-Bus protocol, the operation fails with Gio::IO_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT.

If reply_type is non-0 then the reply will be checked for having this type and an error will be raised if it does not match. Said another way, if you give a reply_type then any non-0 return value will be of this type.

A call_sync() convenience overload.

void Gio::DBus::Connection::close ( )

Closes the connection.

Note that this never causes the process to exit (this might only happen if the other end of a shared message bus connection disconnects, see property_exit_on_close()).

Once the connection is closed, operations such as sending a message will return with the error Gio::IO_ERROR_CLOSED. Closing a connection will not automatically flush the connection so queued messages may be lost. Use flush() if you need such guarantees.

If the connection is already closed, this method fails with Gio::IO_ERROR_CLOSED.

When the connection has been closed, the "closed" signal is emitted in the thread-default main loop of the thread that connection was constructed in.

This is an asynchronous method. See close_sync() for the synchronous version.

Asynchronously sets up a D-Bus connection for exchanging D-Bus messages with the end represented by stream.

If stream is a SocketConnection, then the corresponding Socket will be put into non-blocking mode.

The D-Bus connection will interact with stream from a worker thread. As a result, the caller should not interact with stream after this method has been called, except by calling Glib::object_unref() on it.

If observer is not nullptr it may be used to control the authentication process.

static

Synchronously connects and sets up a D-Bus client connection for exchanging D-Bus messages with an endpoint specified by address which must be in the D-Bus address format.

This constructor can only be used to initiate client-side connections - use g_dbus_connection_new_sync() if you need to act as the server. In particular, flags cannot contain the Gio::DBus::ConnectionFlags::AUTHENTICATION_SERVER or Gio::DBus::ConnectionFlags::AUTHENTICATION_ALLOW_ANONYMOUS flags.

This is a synchronous failable constructor. See g_dbus_connection_new_for_address() for the asynchronous version.

If observer is not nullptr it may be used to control the authentication process.

Synchronously sets up a D-Bus connection for exchanging D-Bus messages with the end represented by stream.

If stream is a SocketConnection, then the corresponding Socket will be put into non-blocking mode.

The D-Bus connection will interact with stream from a worker thread. As a result, the caller should not interact with stream after this method has been called, except by calling Glib::object_unref() on it.

If observer is not nullptr it may be used to control the authentication process.

guint Gio::DBus::Connection::export_action_group ( const Glib::ustring object_path,
const Glib::RefPtr< ActionGroup >&  action_group 
)

Exports action_group on connection at object_path.

The implemented D-Bus API should be considered private. It is subject to change in the future.

A given object path can only have one action group exported on it. If this constraint is violated, the export will fail and 0 will be returned (with error set accordingly).

You can unexport the action group using g_dbus_connection_unexport_action_group() with the return value of this function.

The thread default main context is taken at the time of this call. All incoming action activations and state change requests are reported from this context. Any changes on the action group that cause it to emit signals must also come from this same context. Since incoming action activations and state change requests are rather likely to cause changes on the action group, this effectively limits a given action group to being exported from only one main context.

Since glibmm 2.32:
Parameters
object_pathA D-Bus object path.
action_groupA ActionGroup.
Returns
The ID of the export (never zero), or 0 in case of failure.
Exceptions
Glib::Error
guint Gio::DBus::Connection::export_menu_model ( const Glib::ustring object_path,

Exports menu on connection at object_path.

The implemented D-Bus API should be considered private. It is subject to change in the future.

An object path can only have one menu model exported on it. If this constraint is violated, the export will fail and 0 will be returned (with error set accordingly).

You can unexport the menu model using g_dbus_connection_unexport_menu_model() with the return value of this function.

Returns
The last used serial or zero when no message has been sent within the current thread.
Glib::RefPtr<Credentials> Gio::DBus::Connection::get_peer_credentials ( )

Gets the credentials of the authenticated peer.

This will always return nullptr unless connection acted as a server (e.g. Gio::DBus::ConnectionFlags::AUTHENTICATION_SERVER was passed) when set up and the client passed credentials as part of the authentication process.

In a message bus setup, the message bus is always the server and each application is a client. So this method will always return nullptr for message bus clients.

Returns
The stream used for IO.
Glib::RefPtr<const IOStream> Gio::DBus::Connection::get_stream ( ) const

Gets the underlying stream used for IO.

While the Gio::DBus::Connection is active, it will interact with this stream from a worker thread, so it is not safe to interact with the stream directly.

Note that the returned object may shared with other callers, e.g. if two separate parts of a process calls this function with the same bus_type, they will share the same object.

This is a synchronous failable function. See g_bus_get() and g_bus_get_finish() for the asynchronous version.

The returned object is a singleton, that is, shared with other callers of g_bus_get() and g_bus_get_sync() for bus_type. In the event that you need a private message bus connection, use g_dbus_address_get_for_bus_sync() and g_dbus_connection_new_for_address().

guint Gio::DBus::Connection::register_object ( const Glib::ustring object_path,
const Glib::RefPtr< InterfaceInfo >&  interface_info,
const InterfaceVTable vtable 
)

Registers slots for exported objects at object_path with the D-Bus interface that is described in interface_info.

Calls to slots in vtable will happen in the thread-default main loop of the thread you are calling this method from.

Note that all Glib::VariantBase values passed to functions in vtable will match the signature given in interface_info - if a remote caller passes incorrect values, the org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs is returned to the remote caller.

Additionally, if the remote caller attempts to invoke methods or access properties not mentioned in interface_info the org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod resp. org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs errors are returned to the caller.

It is considered a programming error if the SlotDBusInterfaceGetProperty slot in vtable returns a Glib::VariantBase of incorrect type.

If an existing slot is already registered at object_path and interface_name, then a Glib::Error is thrown.

GDBus automatically implements the standard D-Bus interfaces org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties, org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable and org.freedesktop.Peer, so you don't have to implement those for the objects you export. You can implement org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties yourself, e.g. to handle getting and setting of properties asynchronously.

Parameters
object_pathThe object path to register at.
interface_infoIntrospection data for the interface.
vtableAn InterfaceVTable to call into.
Returns
A registration id (never 0) that can be used with unregister_object() if no Glib::Error is thrown.
Exceptions
Glib::Error.
Since glibmm 2.28:
guint Gio::DBus::Connection::register_object ( const Glib::ustring object_path,
const Glib::RefPtr< InterfaceInfo >&  interface_info 
)

Registers exported objects at object_path with the D-Bus interface that is described in interface_info.

This method overload, which does not take a VTable, is useful for marker interfaces.

If an existing slot is already registered at object_path and interface_name, then a Glib::Error is thrown.

GDBus automatically implements the standard D-Bus interfaces org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties, org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable and org.freedesktop.Peer, so you don't have to implement those for the objects you export.

Parameters
object_pathThe object path to register at.
interface_infoIntrospection data for the interface.
Returns
A registration id (never 0) that can be used with unregister_object() if no Glib::Error is thrown.
Exceptions
Glib::Error.

guint Gio::DBus::Connection::register_subtree ( const Glib::ustring object_path,
const SubtreeVTable vtable,
SubtreeFlags  flags = Gio::DBus::SubtreeFlags::NONE 
)

Registers a whole subtree of “dynamic” objects.

Copies of the enumerate and introspection slots usted to create vtable are used to convey, to remote callers, what nodes exist in the subtree rooted by object_path.

When handling remote calls into any node in the subtree, first the enumerate slot is used to check if the node exists. If the node exists or the Gio::DBus::SubtreeFlags::DISPATCH_TO_UNENUMERATED_NODES flag is set the introspection slot is used to check if the node supports the requested method. If so, the dispatch function is used to determine where to dispatch the call. The collected InterfaceVTable will be used to call into the interface vtable for processing the request.

All calls into user-provided code will be invoked in the thread-default main loop of the thread you are calling this method from.

If an existing subtree is already registered at object_path or then a Glib::Error is thrown.

Note that it is valid to register regular objects (using register_object()) in a subtree registered with register_subtree() - if so, the subtree handler is tried as the last resort. One way to think about a subtree handler is to consider it a “fallback handler” for object paths not registered via register_object().

Parameters
object_pathThe object path to register the subtree at.
vtableA SubtreeVTable to enumerate, introspect and dispatch nodes in the subtree.
flagsFlags used to fine tune the behavior of the subtree.
Returns
A subtree registration id (never 0) that can be used with unregister_subtree() if no Glib::Error is thrown.
Since glibmm 2.28:
void Gio::DBus::Connection::remove_filter ( guint  filter_id)

Removes a filter.

Note that since filters run in a different thread, there is a race condition where it is possible that the filter will be running even after calling g_dbus_connection_remove_filter(), so you cannot just free data that the filter might be using. Instead, you should pass a DestroyNotify to g_dbus_connection_add_filter(), which will be called when it is guaranteed that the data is no longer needed.

Since glibmm 2.26:
Parameters
filter_idAn identifier obtained from g_dbus_connection_add_filter().
bool Gio::DBus::Connection::send_message ( const Glib::RefPtr< Message >&  message,
SendMessageFlags  flags,
guint32 &  out_serial 
)

Asynchronously sends message to the peer represented by connection.

Unless flags contain the Gio::DBus::SendMessageFlags::PRESERVE_SERIAL flag, the serial number will be assigned by connection and set on message via g_dbus_message_set_serial(). If out_serial is not nullptr, then the serial number used will be written to this location prior to submitting the message to the underlying transport.

If connection is closed then the operation will fail with Gio::Error::CLOSED. If message is not well-formed, the operation fails with Gio::Error::INVALID_ARGUMENT.

See this [server][gdbus-server] and [client][gdbus-unix-fd-client] for an example of how to use this low-level API to send and receive UNIX file descriptors.

Note that message must be unlocked, unless flags contain the Gio::DBus::SendMessageFlags::PRESERVE_SERIAL flag.

Since glibmm 2.26:
Parameters
messageA Gio::DBus::Message.
flagsFlags affecting how the message is sent.
out_serialReturn location for serial number assigned to message when sending it or nullptr.
Returns
true if the message was well-formed and queued for transmission, false if error is set.
Exceptions
Glib::Error
bool Gio::DBus::Connection::send_message ( const Glib::RefPtr< Message >&  message,
SendMessageFlags  flags = Gio::DBus::SendMessageFlags::NONE 
)

A send_message() without an "out_serial" parameter.

void Gio::DBus::Connection::send_message_with_reply ( const Glib::RefPtr< Message >&  message,
int  timeout_msec,
const SlotAsyncReady slot,
const Glib::RefPtr< Cancellable >&  cancellable 
)

Asynchronously sends message to the peer represented by the connection.

Unless flags contain the Gio::DBus::SendMessageFlags::PRESERVE_SERIAL flag, the serial number will be assigned by the connection and set on message via Gio::DBus::Message::set_serial().

If the connection is closed then the operation will fail with Gio::IO_ERROR_CLOSED. If cancellable is canceled, the operation will fail with Gio::IO_ERROR_CANCELLED. If message is not well-formed, the operation fails with Gio::IO_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT.

This is an asynchronous method. When the operation is finished, slot will be invoked in the thread-default main loop of the thread you are calling this method from. You can then call send_message_with_reply_finish() to get the result of the operation. See send_message_with_reply_sync() for the synchronous version.

Note that message must be unlocked, unless flags contain the Gio::DBus::SendMessageFlags::PRESERVE_SERIAL flag.

See the C API docs for examples.

Parameters
messageA Message.
timeout_msecThe timeout in milliseconds or -1 to use the default timeout.
slotA SlotAsyncReady to call when the request is satisfied.
cancellableA Cancellable.
Since glibmm 2.28:
void Gio::DBus::Connection::send_message_with_reply ( const Glib::RefPtr< Message >&  message,

)

Non-cancellable version of send_message_with_reply().

Glib::RefPtr<Message> Gio::DBus::Connection::send_message_with_reply_finish ( const Glib::RefPtr< AsyncResult >&  res)

Finishes an operation started with g_dbus_connection_send_message_with_reply().

Note that error is only set if a local in-process error occurred. That is to say that the returned Gio::DBus::Message object may be of type Gio::DBus::MessageType::ERROR. Use g_dbus_message_to_gerror() to transcode this to a Error.

See this [server][gdbus-server] and [client][gdbus-unix-fd-client] for an example of how to use this low-level API to send and receive UNIX file descriptors.

Since glibmm 2.26:
Parameters
resA AsyncResult obtained from the SlotAsyncReady passed to g_dbus_connection_send_message_with_reply().
Returns
A locked Gio::DBus::Message or nullptr if error is set.
Exceptions
Glib::Error
Glib::RefPtr<Message> Gio::DBus::Connection::send_message_with_reply_sync ( const Glib::RefPtr< Message >&  message,
const Glib::RefPtr< Cancellable >&  cancellable,
gint  timeout_msec 
)

Synchronously sends message to the peer represented by the connection and blocks the calling thread until a reply is received or the timeout is reached.

See send_message_with_reply() for the asynchronous version of this method.

Unless flags contain the Gio::DBus::SendMessageFlags::PRESERVE_SERIAL flag, the serial number will be assigned by the connection and set on message via Gio::DBus::Message::set_serial().

If the connection is closed then the operation will fail with Gio::IO_ERROR_CLOSED. If cancellable is canceled, the operation will fail with Gio::IO_ERROR_CANCELLED. If message is not well-formed, the operation fails with Gio::IO_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT.

Note that a Glib::Error is thrown if a local in-process error occured. That is to say that the returned Message object may be of type G_DBUS_MESSAGE_TYPE_ERROR. Use Gio::DBus::Message::to_exception() to transcode this to a Glib::Error.

See the C API docs for examples.

Note that message must be unlocked, unless flags contain the Gio::DBus::SendMessageFlags::PRESERVE_SERIAL flag.

Parameters
messageA Message.
cancellableA Cancellable.
timeout_msecThe timeout in milliseconds or -1 to use the default timeout.
Returns
A locked Message that is the reply to message or 0 if a Glib::Error is thrown.
Exceptions
Glib::Error.
Since glibmm 2.28:
Glib::RefPtr<Message> Gio::DBus::Connection::send_message_with_reply_sync ( const Glib::RefPtr< Message >&  message,
gint  timeout_msec 
)

A non-cancellable version of send_message_with_reply_sync().

void Gio::DBus::Connection::set_exit_on_close ( bool  exit_on_close = true)

Sets whether the process should be terminated when connection is closed by the remote peer.

See Gio::DBus::Connection::property_exit_on_close() for more details.

Note that this function should be used with care. Most modern UNIX desktops tie the notion of a user session the session bus, and expect all of a users applications to quit when their bus connection goes away. If you are setting exit_on_close to false for the shared session bus connection, you should make sure that your application exits when the user session ends.

Since glibmm 2.26:
Parameters
exit_on_closeWhether the process should be terminated when connection is closed by the remote peer.
Glib::SignalProxy<void(bool, const Glib::Error&)> Gio::DBus::Connection::signal_closed ( )
Slot Prototype:
void on_my_closed(bool remote_peer_vanished, const Glib::Error& error)

Flags: Run Last

Emitted when the connection is closed.

The cause of this event can be

  • If g_dbus_connection_close() is called. In this case remote_peer_vanished is set to false and error is nullptr.
  • If the remote peer closes the connection. In this case remote_peer_vanished is set to true and error is set.
  • If the remote peer sends invalid or malformed data. In this case remote_peer_vanished is set to false and error is set.

Upon receiving this signal, you should give up your reference to connection. You are guaranteed that this signal is emitted only once.

Since glibmm 2.26:
Parameters
remote_peer_vanishedtrue if connection is closed because the remote peer closed its end of the connection.
errorA Error with more details about the event or nullptr.
guint Gio::DBus::Connection::signal_subscribe ( const SlotSignal slot,
const Glib::ustring sender = {},
const Glib::ustring interface_name = {},
const Glib::ustring member = {},
const Glib::ustring object_path = {},
const Glib::ustring arg0 = {},
SignalFlags  flags = Gio::DBus::SignalFlags::NONE 
)

Subscribes to signals on the connection and invokes slot with a whenever the signal is received.

Note that slot will be invoked in the thread-default main loop of the thread you are calling this method from.

If the connection is not a message bus connection, sender must be 0.

If sender is a well-known name note that slot is invoked with the unique name for the owner of sender, not the well-known name as one would expect. This is because the message bus rewrites the name. As such, to avoid certain race conditions, users should be tracking the name owner of the well-known name and use that when processing the received signal.

Parameters
slotSlot to invoke when there is a signal matching the requested data.
senderSender name to match on (unique or well-known name) or 0 to listen from all senders.
interface_nameD-Bus interface name to match on or 0 to match on all interfaces.
memberD-Bus signal name to match on or 0 to match on all signals.
object_pathObject path to match on or 0 to match on all object paths.
arg0Contents of first string argument to match on or 0 to match on all kinds of arguments.
flagsFlags describing how to subscribe to the signal (currently unused).
Returns
A subscription identifier that can be used with signal_unsubscribe().
Since glibmm 2.28:
void Gio::DBus::Connection::signal_unsubscribe ( guint  subscription_id)

Unsubscribes from signals.

Since glibmm 2.26:
Parameters
subscription_idA subscription id obtained from g_dbus_connection_signal_subscribe().
void Gio::DBus::Connection::start_message_processing ( )

If connection was created with Gio::DBus::ConnectionFlags::DELAY_MESSAGE_PROCESSING, this method starts processing messages.

Does nothing on if connection wasn't created with this flag or if the method has already been called.

Since glibmm 2.26:
void Gio::DBus::Connection::unexport_action_group ( guint  export_id)

Reverses the effect of a previous call to g_dbus_connection_export_action_group().

It is an error to call this function with an ID that wasn't returned from g_dbus_connection_export_action_group() or to call it with the same ID more than once.

Since glibmm 2.32:
Parameters
export_idThe ID from g_dbus_connection_export_action_group().
void Gio::DBus::Connection::unexport_menu_model ( guint  export_id)

Reverses the effect of a previous call to g_dbus_connection_export_menu_model().

It is an error to call this function with an ID that wasn't returned from g_dbus_connection_export_menu_model() or to call it with the same ID more than once.

Since glibmm 2.32:
Parameters
export_idThe ID from g_dbus_connection_export_menu_model().
bool Gio::DBus::Connection::unregister_object ( guint  registration_id)

Unregisters an object.

Since glibmm 2.26:
Parameters
registration_idA registration id obtained from g_dbus_connection_register_object().

true if the object was unregistered, false otherwise.
bool Gio::DBus::Connection::unregister_subtree ( guint  registration_id)

Unregisters a subtree.

Since glibmm 2.26:
Parameters
registration_idA subtree registration id obtained from g_dbus_connection_register_subtree().
