Method

GdkDropread_finish

Declaration [src]

GInputStream*
gdk_drop_read_finish (
  GdkDrop* self,
  GAsyncResult* result,
  const char** out_mime_type,
  GError** error
)

Description [src]

Finishes an async drop read operation.

Note that you must not use blocking read calls on the returned stream in the GTK thread, since some platforms might require communication with GTK to complete the data transfer. You can use async APIs such as g_input_stream_read_bytes_async().

See gdk_drop_read_async().

Parameters

result

Type: GAsyncResult

A GAsyncResult

The data is owned by the caller of the function.

error

Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.

In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.
