Declaration [src]

g_variant_get (
  GVariant* value,
  const gchar* format_string,

Description [src]

Deconstructs a GVariant instance.

Think of this function as an analogue to scanf().

The arguments that are expected by this function are entirely determined by format_string. format_string also restricts the permissible types of value. It is an error to give a value with an incompatible type. See the section on GVariant format strings. Please note that the syntax of the format string is very likely to be extended in the future.

format_string determines the C types that are used for unpacking the values and also determines if the values are copied or borrowed, see the section on GVariant format strings.
