Detailed Description

factory for creating dmabuf-based wl_buffers

Following the interfaces from: https://www.khronos.org/registry/egl/extensions/EXT/EGL_EXT_image_dma_buf_import.txt https://www.khronos.org/registry/EGL/extensions/EXT/EGL_EXT_image_dma_buf_import_modifiers.txt and the Linux DRM sub-system's AddFb2 ioctl.

This interface offers ways to create generic dmabuf-based wl_buffers. Immediately after a client binds to this interface, the set of supported formats and format modifiers is sent with 'format' and 'modifier' events.

The following are required from clients:

The underlying graphics stack must ensure the following:

To create a wl_buffer from one or more dmabufs, a client creates a zwp_linux_dmabuf_params_v1 object with a zwp_linux_dmabuf_v1.create_params request. All planes required by the intended format are added with the 'add' request. Finally, a 'create' or 'create_immed' request is issued, which has the following outcome depending on the import success.

The 'create' request,

For the 'create_immed' request,

·

on success, the server immediately imports the added dmabufs to create a wl_buffer. No event is sent from the server in this case.

·

on failure, the server can choose to either:

 ·

terminate the client by raising a fatal error.

 ·

mark the wl_buffer as failed, and send a 'failed' event to the client. If the client uses a failed wl_buffer as an argument to any request, the behaviour is compositor implementation-defined.

Warning! The protocol described in this file is experimental and backward incompatible changes may be made. Backward compatible changes may be added together with the corresponding interface version bump. Backward incompatible changes are done by bumping the version number in the protocol and interface names and resetting the interface version. Once the protocol is to be declared stable, the 'z' prefix and the version number in the protocol and interface names are removed and the interface version number is reset.

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

zwp_linux_buffer_params_v1_t zwp_linux_dmabuf_v1_t::create_params ()

create a temporary object for buffer parameters

Returns

the new temporary

This temporary object is used to collect multiple dmabuf handles into a single batch to create a wl_buffer. It can only be used once and should be destroyed after a 'created' or 'failed' event has been received.

Definition at line 4919 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.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.

std::function< void(uint32_t)> & zwp_linux_dmabuf_v1_t::on_format ()

supported buffer format

Parameters

format DRM_FORMAT code

This event advertises one buffer format that the server supports. All the supported formats are advertised once when the client binds to this interface. A roundtrip after binding guarantees that the client has received all supported formats.

For the definition of the format codes, see the zwp_linux_buffer_params_v1::create request.

Warning: the 'format' event is likely to be deprecated and replaced with the 'modifier' event introduced in zwp_linux_dmabuf_v1 version 3, described below. Please refrain from using the information received from this event.

Definition at line 4925 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

std::function< void(uint32_t, uint32_t, uint32_t)> & zwp_linux_dmabuf_v1_t::on_modifier ()

supported buffer format modifier

Parameters

format DRM_FORMAT code
modifier_hi high 32 bits of layout modifier
modifier_lo low 32 bits of layout modifier

This event advertises the formats that the server supports, along with the modifiers supported for each format. All the supported modifiers for all the supported formats are advertised once when the client binds to this interface. A roundtrip after binding guarantees that the client has received all supported format-modifier pairs.

For legacy support, DRM_FORMAT_MOD_INVALID (that is, modifier_hi == 0x00ffffff and modifier_lo == 0xffffffff) is allowed in this event. It indicates that the server can support the format with an implicit modifier. When a plane has DRM_FORMAT_MOD_INVALID as its modifier, it is as if no explicit modifier is specified. The effective modifier will be derived from the dmabuf.

For the definition of the format and modifier codes, see the zwp_linux_buffer_params_v1::create and zwp_linux_buffer_params_v1::add requests.

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 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.
