Method

GioFileload_bytes_async

Declaration

void
g_file_load_bytes_async (
  GFile* file,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GAsyncReadyCallback callback,
  gpointer user_data
)

Description

Asynchronously loads the contents of file as GBytes.

If file is a resource:// based URI, the resulting bytes will reference the embedded resource instead of a copy. Otherwise, this is equivalent to calling g_file_load_contents_async() and g_bytes_new_take().

callback should call g_file_load_bytes_finish() to get the result of this asynchronous operation.

See g_file_load_bytes() for more information.
