sd_bus_call_method - Man Page

Initialize a bus message object and invoke the corresponding D-Bus method call

Synopsis

#include <systemd/sd-bus.h>

typedef int (*sd_bus_message_handler_t)(sd_bus_message *m, void *userdata, sd_bus_error *ret_error);

int sd_bus_call_method(sd_bus *bus, const char *destination, const char *path, const char *interface, const char *member, sd_bus_error *ret_error, sd_bus_message **reply, const char *types, ...);

Description

sd_bus_call_method() is a convenience function for initializing a bus message object and calling the corresponding D-Bus method. It combines the sd_bus_message_new_method_call(3), sd_bus_message_append(3) and sd_bus_call(3) functions into a single function call.

sd_bus_call_method_async() is a convenience function for initializing a bus message object and calling the corresponding D-Bus method asynchronously. It combines the sd_bus_message_new_method_call(3), sd_bus_message_append(3) and sd_bus_call_async(3) functions into a single function call.

Return Value

On success, these functions return a non-negative integer. On failure, they return a negative errno-style error code.

Errors

See the man pages of sd_bus_message_new_method_call(3), sd_bus_message_append(3), sd_bus_call(3) and sd_bus_call_async(3) for a list of possible errors.

Notes

These APIs are implemented as a shared library, which can be compiled and linked to with the libsystemd pkg-config(1) file.
