Declaration [src]

g_file_trash (
  GFile* file,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GError** error

Description [src]

Sends file to the “Trashcan”, if possible. This is similar to deleting it, but the user can recover it before emptying the trashcan. Not all file systems support trashing, so this call can return the G_IO_ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED error. Since GLib 2.66, the x-gvfs-notrash unix mount option can be used to disable g_file_trash() support for certain mounts, the G_IO_ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED error will be returned in that case.

If cancellable is not NULL, then the operation can be cancelled by triggering the cancellable object from another thread. If the operation was cancelled, the error G_IO_ERROR_CANCELLED will be returned.



Type: GCancellable

Optional GCancellable object, NULL to ignore.

The argument can be NULL.
The data is owned by the caller of 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 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: gboolean

TRUE on successful trash, FALSE otherwise.
