Detailed Description

group of input devices

A seat is a group of keyboards, pointer and touch devices. This object is published as a global during start up, or when such a device is hot plugged. A seat typically has a pointer and maintains a keyboard focus and a pointer focus.

Examples egl.cpp, proxy_wrapper.cpp, and shm.cpp.

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 seat_t::can_release () const

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

Definition at line 2778 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.

keyboard_t seat_t::get_keyboard ()

return keyboard object

Returns

seat keyboard

The ID provided will be initialized to the wl_keyboard interface for this seat.

This request only takes effect if the seat has the keyboard capability, or has had the keyboard capability in the past. It is a protocol violation to issue this request on a seat that has never had the keyboard capability. The missing_capability error will be sent in this case.

Examples egl.cpp, proxy_wrapper.cpp, and shm.cpp.

Definition at line 2762 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

pointer_t seat_t::get_pointer ()

return pointer object

Returns

seat pointer

The ID provided will be initialized to the wl_pointer interface for this seat.

This request only takes effect if the seat has the pointer capability, or has had the pointer capability in the past. It is a protocol violation to issue this request on a seat that has never had the pointer capability. The missing_capability error will be sent in this case.

Examples egl.cpp, and shm.cpp.

Definition at line 2756 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

touch_t seat_t::get_touch ()

return touch object

Returns

seat touch interface

The ID provided will be initialized to the wl_touch interface for this seat.

This request only takes effect if the seat has the touch capability, or has had the touch capability in the past. It is a protocol violation to issue this request on a seat that has never had the touch capability. The missing_capability error will be sent in this case.

Definition at line 2768 of file wayland-client-protocol.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.

std::function< void(seat_capability)> & seat_t::on_capabilities ()

seat capabilities changed

Parameters

capabilities capabilities of the seat

This is emitted whenever a seat gains or loses the pointer, keyboard or touch capabilities. The argument is a capability enum containing the complete set of capabilities this seat has.

When the pointer capability is added, a client may create a wl_pointer object using the wl_seat.get_pointer request. This object will receive pointer events until the capability is removed in the future.

When the pointer capability is removed, a client should destroy the wl_pointer objects associated with the seat where the capability was removed, using the wl_pointer.release request. No further pointer events will be received on these objects.

In some compositors, if a seat regains the pointer capability and a client has a previously obtained wl_pointer object of version 4 or less, that object may start sending pointer events again. This behavior is considered a misinterpretation of the intended behavior and must not be relied upon by the client. wl_pointer objects of version 5 or later must not send events if created before the most recent event notifying the client of an added pointer capability.

The above behavior also applies to wl_keyboard and wl_touch with the keyboard and touch capabilities, respectively.

Examples egl.cpp, and shm.cpp.

Definition at line 2783 of file wayland-client-protocol.cpp.

std::function< void(std::string)> & seat_t::on_name ()

unique identifier for this seat

Parameters

name seat identifier

In a multiseat configuration this can be used by the client to help identify which physical devices the seat represents. Based on the seat configuration used by the compositor.

Definition at line 2788 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 seat_t::release ()

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

Definition at line 2774 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.
