Declaration

GFile*
g_file_get_child_for_display_name (
  GFile* file,
  const char* display_name,
  GError** error
)

Description

Gets the child of file for a given display_name (i.e. a UTF-8 version of the name). If this function fails, it returns NULL and error will be set. This is very useful when constructing a GFile for a new file and the user entered the filename in the user interface, for instance when you select a directory and type a filename in the file selector.

This call does no blocking I/O.

Parameters

display_name const char*
 

String to a possible child.

 The data is owned by the caller of the function.
 The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.
error GError **
  The return location for a GError*, or NULL.

Return value

Returns: GFile
 

A GFile to the specified child, or NULL if the display name couldn’t be converted. Free the returned object with g_object_unref().

 The caller of the method takes ownership of the data, and is responsible for freeing it.
