Method

GObjectObjectref

Declaration

GObject*
g_object_ref (
  GObject* object
)

Description

Increases the reference count of object.

Since GLib 2.56, if GLIB_VERSION_MAX_ALLOWED is 2.56 or greater, the type of object will be propagated to the return type (using the GCC typeof() extension), so any casting the caller needs to do on the return type must be explicit.

Return value

Returns: GObject
 

The same object.

 The data is owned by the instance.
