module Gio::RemoteActionGroup


The GRemoteActionGroup interface is implemented by #GActionGroup instances that either transmit action invocations to other processes or receive action invocations in the local process from other processes.

The interface has _full variants of the two methods on #GActionGroup used to activate actions: g_action_group_activate_action() and g_action_group_change_action_state(). These variants allow a "platform data" #GVariant to be specified: a dictionary providing context for the action invocation (for example: timestamps, startup notification IDs, etc).

#GDBusActionGroup implements #GRemoteActionGroup. This provides a mechanism to send platform data for action invocations over D-Bus.

Additionally, g_dbus_connection_export_action_group() will check if the exported #GActionGroup implements #GRemoteActionGroup and use the _full variants of the calls if available. This provides a mechanism by which to receive platform data for action invocations that arrive by way of D-Bus.
