Type: const gchar*

The string to parse.

The data is owned by the caller of the method.
The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.

Type: gssize

The length of buffer (may be -1 if buffer is nul-terminated).


Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.
The argument will be left initialized to NULL by the method if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: guint

The merge id for the merged UI. The merge id can be used to unmerge the UI with gtk_ui_manager_remove_ui(). If an error occurred, the return value is 0.
