Function

GObjecttype_name

Declaration

const gchar*
g_type_name (
  GType type
)

Description

Get the unique name that is assigned to a type ID. Note that this function (like all other GType API) cannot cope with invalid type IDs. G_TYPE_INVALID may be passed to this function, as may be any other validly registered type ID, but randomized type IDs should not be passed in and will most likely lead to a crash.

Parameters

type GType
 

Type to return name for.

Return value

Returns: const gchar*
 

Static type name or NULL.

 The data is owned by the called function.
 The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.
