Detailed Description

offer to transfer data

The wl_data_source object is the source side of a wl_data_offer. It is created by the source client in a data transfer and provides a way to describe the offered data and a way to respond to requests to transfer the data.

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum wayland::proxy_t::wrapper_type [strong], [inherited]

Underlying wl_proxy type and properties of a proxy_t that affect construction, destruction, and event handling

Enumerator

standard

C pointer is a standard type compatible with wl_proxy*. Events are dispatched and it is destructed when the proxy_t is destructed. User data is set.

display

C pointer is a wl_display*. No events are dispatched, wl_display_disconnect is called when the proxy_t is destructed. User data is set.

foreign

C pointer is a standard type compatible with wl_proxy*, but another library owns it and it should not be touched in a way that could affect the operation of the other library. No events are dispatched, wl_proxy_destroy is not called when the proxy_t is destructed, user data is not touched. Consequently, there is no reference counting for the proxy_t. Lifetime of such wrappers should preferably be short to minimize the chance that the owning library decides to destroy the wl_proxy.

proxy_wrapper

C pointer is a wl_proxy* that was constructed with wl_proxy_create_wrapper. No events are dispatched, wl_proxy_wrapper_destroy is called when the proxy_t is destroyed. Reference counting is active. A reference to the proxy_t creating this proxy wrapper is held to extend its lifetime until after the proxy wrapper is destroyed.

Member Function Documentation

wl_proxy* wayland::proxy_t::c_ptr () const [inherited]

Get a pointer to the underlying C struct.

Returns

The underlying wl_proxy wrapped by this proxy_t if it exists, otherwise an exception is thrown

bool data_source_t::can_set_actions () const

Check whether the set_actions function is available with the currently bound version of the protocol.

Definition at line 2106 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

std::string wayland::proxy_t::get_class () const [inherited]

Get the interface name (class) of a proxy object.

Returns

The interface name of the object associated with the proxy

uint32_t wayland::proxy_t::get_id () const [inherited]

Get the id of a proxy object.

Returns

The id the object associated with the proxy

Examples dump.cpp.

uint32_t wayland::proxy_t::get_version () const [inherited]

Get the protocol object version of a proxy object. Gets the protocol object version of a proxy object, or 0 if the proxy was created with unversioned API.

A returned value of 0 means that no version information is available, so the caller must make safe assumptions about the object's real version.

display_t will always return version 0.

Returns

The protocol object version of the proxy or 0

wrapper_type wayland::proxy_t::get_wrapper_type () const [inline], [inherited]

Get the type of a proxy object.

Definition at line 301 of file wayland-client.hpp.

void data_source_t::offer (std::string const & mime_type)

add an offered mime type

Parameters

mime_type mime type offered by the data source

This request adds a mime type to the set of mime types advertised to targets. Can be called several times to offer multiple types.

Definition at line 2097 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

std::function< void(data_device_manager_dnd_action)> & data_source_t::on_action ()

notify the selected action

Parameters

dnd_action action selected by the compositor

This event indicates the action selected by the compositor after matching the source/destination side actions. Only one action (or none) will be offered here.

This event can be emitted multiple times during the drag-and-drop operation, mainly in response to destination side changes through wl_data_offer.set_actions, and as the data device enters/leaves surfaces.

It is only possible to receive this event after wl_data_source.dnd_drop_performed if the drag-and-drop operation ended in an 'ask' action, in which case the final wl_data_source.action event will happen immediately before wl_data_source.dnd_finished.

Compositors may also change the selected action on the fly, mainly in response to keyboard modifier changes during the drag-and-drop operation.

The most recent action received is always the valid one. The chosen action may change alongside negotiation (e.g. an 'ask' action can turn into a 'move' operation), so the effects of the final action must always be applied in wl_data_offer.dnd_finished.

Clients can trigger cursor surface changes from this point, so they reflect the current action.

Definition at line 2136 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

std::function< void()> & data_source_t::on_cancelled ()

selection was cancelled This data source is no longer valid. There are several reasons why this could happen:

  • The data source has been replaced by another data source.
  • The drag-and-drop operation was performed, but the drop destination did not accept any of the mime types offered through wl_data_source.target.
  • The drag-and-drop operation was performed, but the drop destination did not select any of the actions present in the mask offered through wl_data_source.action.
  • The drag-and-drop operation was performed but didn't happen over a surface.
  • The compositor cancelled the drag-and-drop operation (e.g. compositor dependent timeouts to avoid stale drag-and-drop transfers).

The client should clean up and destroy this data source.

For objects of version 2 or older, wl_data_source.cancelled will only be emitted if the data source was replaced by another data source.

Definition at line 2121 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

std::function< void()> & data_source_t::on_dnd_drop_performed ()

the drag-and-drop operation physically finished The user performed the drop action. This event does not indicate acceptance, wl_data_source.cancelled may still be emitted afterwards if the drop destination does not accept any mime type.

However, this event might however not be received if the compositor cancelled the drag-and-drop operation before this event could happen.

Note that the data_source may still be used in the future and should not be destroyed here.

Definition at line 2126 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

std::function< void()> & data_source_t::on_dnd_finished ()

the drag-and-drop operation concluded The drop destination finished interoperating with this data source, so the client is now free to destroy this data source and free all associated data.

If the action used to perform the operation was 'move', the source can now delete the transferred data.

Definition at line 2131 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

std::function< void(std::string, int)> & data_source_t::on_send ()

send the data

Parameters

mime_type mime type for the data
fd file descriptor for the data

Request for data from the client. Send the data as the specified mime type over the passed file descriptor, then close it.

Definition at line 2116 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

std::function< void(std::string)> & data_source_t::on_target ()

a target accepts an offered mime type

Parameters

mime_type mime type accepted by the target

Sent when a target accepts pointer_focus or motion events. If a target does not accept any of the offered types, type is NULL.

Used for feedback during drag-and-drop.

Definition at line 2111 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

wayland::proxy_t::operator bool () const [inherited]

Check whether this wrapper actually wraps an object.

Returns

true if there is an underlying object, false if this wrapper is empty

bool wayland::proxy_t::operator!= (const proxy_t & right) const [inherited]

Check whether two wrappers refer to different objects.

bool wayland::proxy_t::operator== (const proxy_t & right) const [inherited]

Check whether two wrappers refer to the same object.

bool wayland::proxy_t::proxy_has_object () const [inherited]

Check whether this wrapper actually wraps an object.

Returns

true if there is an underlying object, false if this wrapper is empty

void wayland::proxy_t::proxy_release () [inherited]

Release the wrapped object (if any), making this an empty wrapper. Note that display_t instances cannot be released this way. Attempts to do so are ignored.

Examples foreign_display.cpp.

void data_source_t::set_actions (data_device_manager_dnd_action const & dnd_actions)

set the available drag-and-drop actions

Parameters

dnd_actions actions supported by the data source

Sets the actions that the source side client supports for this operation. This request may trigger wl_data_source.action and wl_data_offer.action events if the compositor needs to change the selected action.

The dnd_actions argument must contain only values expressed in the wl_data_device_manager.dnd_actions enum, otherwise it will result in a protocol error.

This request must be made once only, and can only be made on sources used in drag-and-drop, so it must be performed before wl_data_device.start_drag. Attempting to use the source other than for drag-and-drop will raise a protocol error.

Definition at line 2102 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

void wayland::proxy_t::set_queue (event_queue_t queue) [inherited]

Assign a proxy to an event queue.

Parameters

queue The event queue that will handle this proxy

Assign proxy to event queue. Events coming from proxy will be queued in queue instead of the display's main queue.

See also: display_t::dispatch_queue().

Examples proxy_wrapper.cpp.
