g_tls_interaction_request_certificate (
  GTlsInteraction* interaction,
  GTlsConnection* connection,
  GTlsCertificateRequestFlags flags,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GError** error


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.

Derived subclasses usually implement a certificate selector, although they may also choose to provide a certificate from elsewhere. Alternatively the user may abort this certificate request, which will usually abort the TLS connection.

If G_TLS_INTERACTION_HANDLED is returned, then the GTlsConnection passed to g_tls_interaction_request_certificate() will have had its GTlsConnection:certificate filled in.

If the interaction is cancelled by the cancellation object, or by the user then G_TLS_INTERACTION_FAILED will be returned with an error that contains a G_IO_ERROR_CANCELLED error code. Certain implementations may not support immediate cancellation.
