format and returns the result.
format must be a text format
GVariant with one extension: at any
point that a value may appear in the text, a ‘%’ character followed
by a GVariant format string (as per g_variant_new()) may appear. In
that case, the same arguments are collected from the argument list as
g_variant_new() would have collected.
Note that the arguments must be of the correct width for their types
format. This can be achieved by casting them. See
the [GVariant varargs documentation][gvariant-varargs].
Consider this simple example:
g_variant_new_parsed ("[('one', 1), ('two', %i), (%s, 3)]", 2, "three");
In the example, the variable argument parameters are collected and filled in as if they were part of the original string to produce the result of
[('one', 1), ('two', 2), ('three', 3)]
This function is intended only to be used with
format as a string
literal. Any parse error is fatal to the calling process. If you
want to parse data from untrusted sources, use g_variant_parse().
You may not use this function to return, unmodified, a single
GVariant pointer from the argument list. ie:
format may not solely
be anything along the lines of “%*”, “%?”, “\%r”, or anything starting
This function is not directly available to language bindings.
