union, see #GIUnionInfo

VALUE = 12

enum value, see #GIValueInfo

SIGNAL = 13

signal, see #GISignalInfo

VFUNC = 14

virtual function, see #GIVFuncInfo

argument of a function or callback, see #GIArgInfo

class GIRepository.RepositoryError(value)

Bases: GLib.Enum

An error code used with #G_IREPOSITORY_ERROR in a GLib.Error returned from a GIRepository.Repository routine.

TYPELIB_NOT_FOUND = 0

the typelib could not be found.

NAMESPACE_MISMATCH = 1

the namespace does not match the requested namespace.

NAMESPACE_VERSION_CONFLICT = 2

the version of the typelib does not match the requested version.

LIBRARY_NOT_FOUND = 3

the library used by the typelib could not be found.

class GIRepository.ScopeType(value)

Bases: GLib.Enum

Scope type of a #GIArgInfo representing callback, determines how the callback is invoked and is used to decided when the invoke structs can be freed.

INVALID = 0

The argument is not of callback type.

CALL = 1

The callback and associated user_data is only used during the call to this function.

ASYNC = 2

The callback and associated user_data is only used until the callback is invoked, and the callback. is invoked always exactly once.

NOTIFIED = 3

The callback and and associated user_data is used until the caller is notfied via the destroy_notify.

class GIRepository.Transfer(value)

Bases: GLib.Enum

The transfer is the exchange of data between two parts, from the callee to the caller. The callee is either a function/method/signal or an object/interface where a property is defined. The caller is the side accessing a property or calling a function. GIRepository.Transfer specifies who’s responsible for freeing the resources after the ownership transfer is complete. In case of a containing type such as a list, an array or a hash table the container itself is specified differently from the items within the container itself. Each container is freed differently, check the documentation for the types themselves for information on how to free them.

NOTHING = 0

transfer nothing from the callee (function or the type instance the property belongs to) to the caller. The callee retains the ownership of the transfer and the caller doesn’t need to do anything to free up the resources of this transfer.

CONTAINER = 1

transfer the container (list, array, hash table) from the callee to the caller. The callee retains the ownership of the individual items in the container and the caller has to free up the container resources (g_list_free()/GLib.HashTable.destroy() etc) of this transfer.

EVERYTHING = 2

transfer everything, eg the container and its contents from the callee to the caller. This is the case when the callee creates a copy of all the data it returns. The caller is responsible for cleaning up the container and item resources of this transfer.

class GIRepository.TypeTag(value)

Bases: GLib.Enum

VOID = 0

void

BOOLEAN = 1

boolean

FLOAT = 10

float

DOUBLE = 11

double floating point

GTYPE = 12

a GObject.GType

UTF8 = 13

FILENAME = 14

ARRAY = 15

an array

INTERFACE = 16

an extended interface object

GLIST = 17

a GLib.List

GSLIST = 18

a GLib.SList

GHASH = 19
