  GParamSpec* pspec,
  const gchar* string,
  GValue* value,
  GError** error

Description [src]

This function demarshals a value from a string. This function calls g_value_init() on the value argument, so it need not be initialised beforehand.

This function can handle char, uchar, boolean, int, uint, long, ulong, enum, flags, float, double, string, GdkColor, GdkRGBA and GtkAdjustment type values. Support for GtkWidget type values is still to come.

Upon errors FALSE will be returned and error will be assigned a GError from the #GTK_BUILDER_ERROR domain.

Type: GParamSpec

The GParamSpec for the property.

The argument will be set by the function.
The returned data is owned by the instance.

Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
