Detailed Description

compositor output region

An output describes part of the compositor geometry. The compositor works in the 'compositor coordinate system' and an output corresponds to a rectangular area in that space that is actually visible. This typically corresponds to a monitor that displays part of the compositor space. This object is published as global during start up, or when a monitor is hotplugged.

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 output_t::can_release () const

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

Definition at line 3254 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.

std::function< void()> & output_t::on_done ()

sent all information about output This event is sent after all other properties have been sent after binding to the output object and after any other property changes done after that. This allows changes to the output properties to be seen as atomic, even if they happen via multiple events.

Definition at line 3269 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

std::function< void(int32_t, int32_t, int32_t, int32_t, output_subpixel, std::string, std::string, output_transform)> & output_t::on_geometry ()

properties of the output

Parameters

x x position within the global compositor space
y y position within the global compositor space
physical_width width in millimeters of the output
physical_height height in millimeters of the output
subpixel subpixel orientation of the output
make textual description of the manufacturer
model textual description of the model
transform transform that maps framebuffer to output

The geometry event describes geometric properties of the output. The event is sent when binding to the output object and whenever any of the properties change.

The physical size can be set to zero if it doesn't make sense for this output (e.g. for projectors or virtual outputs).

Note: wl_output only advertises partial information about the output position and identification. Some compositors, for instance those not implementing a desktop-style output layout or those exposing virtual outputs, might fake this information. Instead of using x and y, clients should use xdg_output.logical_position. Instead of using make and model, clients should use xdg_output.name and xdg_output.description.

Definition at line 3259 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

std::function< void(output_mode, int32_t, int32_t, int32_t)> & output_t::on_mode ()

advertise available modes for the output

Parameters

flags bitfield of mode flags
width width of the mode in hardware units
height height of the mode in hardware units
refresh vertical refresh rate in mHz

The mode event describes an available mode for the output.

The event is sent when binding to the output object and there will always be one mode, the current mode. The event is sent again if an output changes mode, for the mode that is now current. In other words, the current mode is always the last mode that was received with the current flag set.

The size of a mode is given in physical hardware units of the output device. This is not necessarily the same as the output size in the global compositor space. For instance, the output may be scaled, as described in wl_output.scale, or transformed, as described in wl_output.transform. Clients willing to retrieve the output size in the global compositor space should use xdg_output.logical_size instead.

The vertical refresh rate can be set to zero if it doesn't make sense for this output (e.g. for virtual outputs).

Clients should not use the refresh rate to schedule frames. Instead, they should use the wl_surface.frame event or the presentation-time protocol.

Note: this information is not always meaningful for all outputs. Some compositors, such as those exposing virtual outputs, might fake the refresh rate or the size.

std::function< void(int32_t)> & output_t::on_scale ()

output scaling properties

Parameters

factor scaling factor of output

This event contains scaling geometry information that is not in the geometry event. It may be sent after binding the output object or if the output scale changes later. If it is not sent, the client should assume a scale of 1.

A scale larger than 1 means that the compositor will automatically scale surface buffers by this amount when rendering. This is used for very high resolution displays where applications rendering at the native resolution would be too small to be legible.

It is intended that scaling aware clients track the current output of a surface, and if it is on a scaled output it should use wl_surface.set_buffer_scale with the scale of the output. That way the compositor can avoid scaling the surface, and the client can supply a higher detail image.

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 output_t::release ()

release the output object Using this request a client can tell the server that it is not going to use the output object anymore.

Definition at line 3250 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.
