Detailed Description

create desktop-style surfaces

This interface is implemented by servers that provide desktop-style user interfaces.

It allows clients to associate a wl_shell_surface with a basic surface.

Note! This protocol is deprecated and not intended for production use. For desktop-style user interfaces, use xdg_shell. Compositors and clients should not implement this interface.

Member Function Documentation

std::string wayland::server::resource_t::get_class () [inherited]

Retrieve the interface name (class) of a resource object.


Interface name of the resource object.

client_t wayland::server::resource_t::get_client () const [inherited]

Get the associated client


the client that owns the resource.

uint32_t wayland::server::resource_t::get_id () const [inherited]

Get the internal ID of the resource


the internal ID of the resource

unsigned int wayland::server::resource_t::get_version () const [inherited]

Get interface version


Interface version this resource has been constructed with.

std::function< void(shell_surface_t, surface_t)> & shell_t::on_get_shell_surface ()

create a shell surface from a surface


id shell surface to create
surface surface to be given the shell surface role

Create a shell surface for an existing surface. This gives the wl_surface the role of a shell surface. If the wl_surface already has another role, it raises a protocol error.

Only one shell surface can be associated with a given surface.

void wayland::server::resource_t::post_no_memory () const [inherited]

Post 'not enough memory' error to the client

If the compositor has not enough memory to fulfill a certail request of the client, this function can be called to notify the client of this circumstance.

void shell_t::post_role (std::string const & msg)

Post error: given wl_surface has another role.

Definition at line 2226 of file wayland-server-protocol.cpp.

bool wayland::server::resource_t::proxy_has_object () const [inherited]

Check whether this wrapper actually wraps an object.


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