Declaration [src]

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

Description [src]

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.



Type: 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.

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 left initialized to NULL by the method 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: 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.
