Functions

GI_IS_REGISTERED_TYPE_INFO()

#define             GI_IS_REGISTERED_TYPE_INFO(info)

Checks if info is a GIRegisteredTypeInfo or derived from it.

Parameters

info

an info structure

 

g_registered_type_info_get_type_name ()

const gchar *
g_registered_type_info_get_type_name (GIRegisteredTypeInfo *info);

Obtain the type name of the struct within the GObject type system. This type can be passed to g_type_name() to get a GType.

Parameters

Returns

the type name


g_registered_type_info_get_type_init ()

const gchar *
g_registered_type_info_get_type_init (GIRegisteredTypeInfo *info);

Obtain the type init function for info . The type init function is the function which will register the GType within the GObject type system. Usually this is not called by langauge bindings or applications, use g_registered_type_info_get_g_type() directly instead.

Parameters

Returns

the symbol name of the type init function, suitable for passing into g_module_symbol().


g_registered_type_info_get_g_type ()

GType
g_registered_type_info_get_g_type (GIRegisteredTypeInfo *info);

Obtain the GType for this registered type or G_TYPE_NONE which a special meaning. It means that either there is no type information associated with this info or that the shared library which provides the type_init function for this info cannot be called.

Parameters

the GType.
