Method

GLibVariantDictinit

Declaration

void
g_variant_dict_init (
  GVariantDict* dict,
  GVariant* from_asv
)

Description

Initialises a GVariantDict structure.

If from_asv is given, it is used to initialise the dictionary.

This function completely ignores the previous contents of dict. On one hand this means that it is valid to pass in completely uninitialised memory. On the other hand, this means that if you are initialising over top of an existing GVariantDict you need to first call g_variant_dict_clear() in order to avoid leaking memory.

You must not call g_variant_dict_ref() or g_variant_dict_unref() on a GVariantDict that was initialised with this function. If you ever pass a reference to a GVariantDict outside of the control of your own code then you should assume that the person receiving that reference may try to use reference counting; you should use g_variant_dict_new() instead of this function.

Parameters

from_asv GVariant
 

The initial value for dict.

 The data is owned by the caller of the function.
