class Gio::DBusObjectManagerServer


#GDBusObjectManagerServer is used to export #GDBusObject instances using the standardized org.freedesktop.DBus.ObjectManager interface. For example, remote D-Bus clients can get all objects and properties in a single call. Additionally, any change in the object hierarchy is broadcast using signals. This means that D-Bus clients can keep caches up to date by only listening to D-Bus signals.

The recommended path to export an object manager at is the path form of the well-known name of a D-Bus service, or below. For example, if a D-Bus service is available at the well-known name net.example.ExampleService1, the object manager should typically be exported at /net/example/ExampleService1, or below (to allow for multiple object managers in a service).

It is supported, but not recommended, to export an object manager at the root path, /.

See #GDBusObjectManagerClient for the client-side code that is intended to be used with #GDBusObjectManagerServer or any D-Bus object implementing the org.freedesktop.DBus.ObjectManager interface.

Constructor Detail

def : String) : self #

Creates a new #GDBusObjectManagerServer object.

The returned server isn't yet exported on any connection. To do so, use g_dbus_object_manager_server_set_connection(). Normally you want to export all of your objects before doing so to avoid InterfacesAdded signals being emitted.

Instance Method Detail

def ==(other : self) #
Description copied from class Reference

Returns true if this reference is the same as other. Invokes same?.

def connection : Gio::DBusConnection | Nil #

Gets the #GDBusConnection used by manager.

[View source]
def connection=(connection : Gio::DBusConnection | Nil) : Nil #

Exports all objects managed by manager on connection. If connection is nil, stops exporting objects.

[View source]
def export(object : Gio::DBusObjectSkeleton) : Nil #

Exports object on manager.

If there is already a #GDBusObject exported at the object path, then the old object is removed.

The object path for object must be in the hierarchy rooted by the object path for manager.

Note that manager will take a reference on object for as long as it is exported.

[View source]
def export_uniquely(object : Gio::DBusObjectSkeleton) : Nil #

Like g_dbus_object_manager_server_export() but appends a string of the form _N (with N being a natural number) to object's object path if an object with the given path already exists. As such, the #GDBusObjectProxy:g-object-path property of object may be modified.

def hash(hasher) #
Description copied from class Reference

See Object#hash(hasher)

def is_exported(object : Gio::DBusObjectSkeleton) : Bool #

Returns whether object is currently exported on manager.

[View source]
def object_path : String #

[View source]
def object_path=(value : String) : String #

[View source]
def unexport(object_path : String) : Bool #

If manager has an object at path, removes the object. Otherwise does nothing.

Note that object_path must be in the hierarchy rooted by the object path for manager.
