Method

GObjectTypeClasspeek_parent

Declaration

GObjectTypeClass*
g_type_class_peek_parent (
  GObjectTypeClass* g_class
)

Description

This is a convenience function often needed in class initializers. It returns the class structure of the immediate parent type of the class passed in. Since derived classes hold a reference count on their parent classes as long as they are instantiated, the returned class will always exist.

This function is essentially equivalent to: g_type_class_peek (g_type_parent (G_TYPE_FROM_CLASS (g_class)))

Return value

Returns: GTypeClass
 

The parent class of g_class.

 The data is owned by the instance.
