Class

GtkFileLauncher

unstable since: 4.10

Description [src]

final class Gtk.FileLauncher : GObject.Object {
  /* No available fields */
}

A GtkFileLauncher object collects the arguments that are needed to open a file with an application.

Depending on system configuration, user preferences and available APIs, this may or may not show an app chooser dialog or launch the default application right away.

The operation is started with the gtk_file_launcher_launch() function. This API follows the GIO async pattern, and the result can be obtained by calling gtk_file_launcher_launch_finish().

To launch uris that don’t represent files, use GtkUriLauncher.
