Object Hierarchy

    GObject
    ╰── GdaTree

Description

The GdaTree is the top level object representing hierarchically structured data. From this object it is also possible (depending on the tree managers it uses), to clean (remove all the nodes) the whole tree, or to request a complete or partial update of the nodes.

It is also possible to set attributes to the tree itself (as it is possible to do for tree nodes), or to dump the whole or part of a tree in an indented and easy to read fashion.

Functions

gda_tree_new ()

GdaTree *
gda_tree_new (void);

Creates a new GdaTree object

Returns

a new GdaTree object.

gda_tree_add_manager ()

void
gda_tree_add_manager (GdaTree *tree,
                      GdaTreeManager *manager);

Sets manager as a top GdaTreeManager object, which will be responsible for creating top level nodes in tree .

Parameters

tree

a GdaTree object

 

manager

a GdaTreeManager object.

gda_tree_clean ()

void
gda_tree_clean (GdaTree *tree);

Removes any node in tree

Parameters

tree

a GdaTree object

 

Since 4.2


gda_tree_update_all ()

gboolean
gda_tree_update_all (GdaTree *tree,
                     GError **error);

Requests that tree be populated with nodes. If an error occurs, then tree 's contents is left unchanged, and otherwise tree 's previous contents is completely replaced by the new one.

Parameters

tree

a GdaTree object

 

error

a place to store errors, or NULL.

[allow-none]

Returns

TRUE if no error occurred.

Since 4.2


gda_tree_update_part ()

gboolean
gda_tree_update_part (GdaTree *tree,
                      GdaTreeNode *node,
                      GError **error);

Requests that tree be populated with nodes, starting from node

Parameters

tree

a GdaTree object

 

node

a GdaTreeNode node in tree

 

error

a place to store errors, or NULL.

[allow-none]

Returns

TRUE if no error occurred.

Since 4.2


gda_tree_update_children ()

gboolean
gda_tree_update_children (GdaTree *tree,
                          GdaTreeNode *node,
                          GError **error);

Update the children of node in tree (not recursively, to update recursively, use gda_tree_update_part()). If node is NULL then the top level nodes are updated.

Parameters

tree

a GdaTree object

 

node

a GdaTreeNode node in tree , or NULL.

[allow-none]

error

a place to store errors, or NULL.

[allow-none]

Returns

TRUE if no error occurred.

Since 4.2.8


gda_tree_get_nodes_in_path ()

GSList *
gda_tree_get_nodes_in_path (GdaTree *tree,
                            const gchar *tree_path,
                            gboolean use_names);

The returned list is a list of all the GdaTreeNode nodes below the node at the specified path.

As a corner case if tree_path is NULL, then the returned list contains all the top level nodes.

Parameters

tree

a GdaTree object

 

tree_path

full path to the required nodes (if use_names is TRUE, then it must start with '/'), or NULL.

[allow-none]

use_names

if TRUE, then tree_path will be interpreted as a unix style path, and if FALSE, then tree_path will be interpreted similarly to the GtkTreePath's string representation.

 

Returns

a new list of GdaTreeNode pointers, free it with g_slist_free().

gda_tree_get_node ()

GdaTreeNode *
gda_tree_get_node (GdaTree *tree,
                   const gchar *tree_path,
                   gboolean use_names);

Locates a GdaTreeNode using the tree_path path.

Parameters

tree

a GdaTree object

 

tree_path

full path to the required nodes (if use_names is TRUE, then it must start with '/')

 

use_names

if TRUE, then tree_path will be interpreted as a unix style path, and if FALSE, then tree_path will be interpreted similarly to the GtkTreePath's string representation.

 

Returns

the requested GdaTreeNode pointer, or NULL if not found.

gda_tree_get_node_path ()

gchar *
gda_tree_get_node_path (GdaTree *tree,

Get the path associated to node in tree .

Parameters
