Detailed Description

create desktop-style surfaces

The xdg_wm_base interface is exposed as a global object enabling clients to turn their wl_surfaces into windows in a desktop environment. It defines the basic functionality needed for clients and the compositor to create windows that can be dragged, resized, maximized, etc, as well as creating transient windows such as popup menus.

Examples egl.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

xdg_positioner_t xdg_wm_base_t::create_positioner ()

create a positioner object Create a positioner object. A positioner object is used to position surfaces relative to some parent surface. See the interface description and xdg_surface.get_popup for details.

Definition at line 1002 of file wayland-client-protocol-extra.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.

xdg_surface_t xdg_wm_base_t::get_xdg_surface (surface_t const & surface)

create a shell surface from a surface

Parameters

surface

This creates an xdg_surface for the given surface. While xdg_surface itself is not a role, the corresponding surface may only be assigned a role extending xdg_surface, such as xdg_toplevel or xdg_popup.

This creates an xdg_surface for the given surface. An xdg_surface is used as basis to define a role to a given surface, such as xdg_toplevel or xdg_popup. It also manages functionality shared between xdg_surface based surface roles.

See the documentation of xdg_surface for more details about what an xdg_surface is and how it is used.

Examples egl.cpp, and shm.cpp.

std::function< void(uint32_t)> & xdg_wm_base_t::on_ping ()

check if the client is alive

Parameters

serial pass this to the pong request

The ping event asks the client if it's still alive. Pass the serial specified in the event back to the compositor by sending a 'pong' request back with the specified serial. See xdg_wm_base.pong.

Compositors can use this to determine if the client is still alive. It's unspecified what will happen if the client doesn't respond to the ping request, or in what timeframe. Clients should try to respond in a reasonable amount of time.

A compositor is free to ping in any way it wants, but a client must always respond to any xdg_wm_base object it created.

Examples egl.cpp, and shm.cpp.

Definition at line 1019 of file wayland-client-protocol-extra.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.

void xdg_wm_base_t::pong (uint32_t serial)

respond to a ping event

Parameters

serial serial of the ping event

A client must respond to a ping event with a pong request or the client may be deemed unresponsive. See xdg_wm_base.ping.

Examples egl.cpp, and shm.cpp.

Definition at line 1014 of file wayland-client-protocol-extra.cpp.

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 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.
