Declaration [src]

gtk_show_uri (
  GdkScreen* screen,
  const gchar* uri,
  guint32 timestamp,
  GError** error

Description [src]

A convenience function for launching the default application to show the uri. Like gtk_show_uri_on_window(), but takes a screen as transient parent instead of a window.

Note that this function is deprecated as it does not pass the necessary information for helpers to parent their dialog properly, when run from sandboxed applications for example.

Available since:2.14
Deprecated since:3.22

Use gtk_show_uri_on_window() instead.
