Description

class Gio.TlsInteraction : GObject.Object {
  /* No available fields */
}

GTlsInteraction provides a mechanism for the TLS connection and database code to interact with the user. It can be used to ask the user for passwords.

To use a GTlsInteraction with a TLS connection use g_tls_connection_set_interaction().

Callers should instantiate a derived class that implements the various interaction methods to show the required dialogs.

Callers should use the ‘invoke’ functions like g_tls_interaction_invoke_ask_password() to run interaction methods. These functions make sure that the interaction is invoked in the main loop and not in the current thread, if the current thread is not running the main loop.

Derived classes can choose to implement whichever interactions methods they’d like to support by overriding those virtual methods in their class initialization function. Any interactions not implemented will return G_TLS_INTERACTION_UNHANDLED. If a derived class implements an async method, it must also implement the corresponding finish method.

Instance methods

g_tls_interaction_ask_password

Run synchronous interaction to ask the user for a password. In general, g_tls_interaction_invoke_ask_password() should be used instead of this function.

since: 2.30

g_tls_interaction_ask_password_async

Run asynchronous interaction to ask the user for a password. In general, g_tls_interaction_invoke_ask_password() should be used instead of this function.

since: 2.30

g_tls_interaction_ask_password_finish

Complete an ask password user interaction request. This should be once the g_tls_interaction_ask_password_async() completion callback is called.

since: 2.30

g_tls_interaction_invoke_ask_password

Invoke the interaction to ask the user for a password. It invokes this interaction in the main loop, specifically the GMainContext returned by g_main_context_get_thread_default() when the interaction is created. This is called by called by GTlsConnection or GTlsDatabase to ask the user for a password.

since: 2.30

g_tls_interaction_invoke_request_certificate

Invoke the interaction to ask the user to choose a certificate to use with the connection. It invokes this interaction in the main loop, specifically the GMainContext returned by g_main_context_get_thread_default() when the interaction is created. This is called by called by GTlsConnection when the peer requests a certificate during the handshake.

since: 2.40

g_tls_interaction_request_certificate

Run synchronous interaction to ask the user to choose a certificate to use with the connection. In general, g_tls_interaction_invoke_request_certificate() should be used instead of this function.

since: 2.40

g_tls_interaction_request_certificate_async

Run asynchronous interaction to ask the user for a certificate to use with the connection. In general, g_tls_interaction_invoke_request_certificate() should be used instead of this function.

since: 2.40

g_tls_interaction_request_certificate_finish

Complete a request certificate user interaction request. This should be once the g_tls_interaction_request_certificate_async() completion callback is called.

The class for GTlsInteraction. Derived classes implement the various virtual interaction methods to handle TLS interactions.

Derived classes can choose to implement whichever interactions methods they’d like to support by overriding those virtual methods in their class initialization function. If a derived class implements an async method, it must also implement the corresponding finish method.

The synchronous interaction methods should implement to display modal dialogs, and the asynchronous methods to display modeless dialogs.

If the user cancels an interaction, then the result should be G_TLS_INTERACTION_FAILED and the error should be set with a domain of G_IO_ERROR and code of G_IO_ERROR_CANCELLED.
