Virtual Method


Declaration [src]

get_value (
  GdkContentProvider* provider,
  GValue* value,
  GError** error

Description [src]

Gets the contents of provider stored in value.

The value will have been initialized to the GType the value should be provided in. This given GType does not need to be listed in the formats returned by gdk_content_provider_ref_formats(). However, if the given GType is not supported, this operation can fail and G_IO_ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED will be reported.



Type: GValue

The GValue to fill.

The argument will be set by the function.
The data is owned by the function.

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*.
The argument will be left initialized to NULL by the virtual function if there are no errors.
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.

Return value

Type: gboolean

TRUE if the value was set successfully. Otherwise error will be set to describe the failure.
