Class Details

class TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest(**kwargs)
Bases:GObject.Object
Abstract:No
Structure:TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequestClass

Data structure representing a TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object.

New in version 0.11.12.

classmethod new(account, request, user_action_time)
Parameters:
Returns:

a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object

Return type:

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest

Convenience function to create a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object.

New in version 0.11.12.

classmethod new_audio_call(account, user_action_time)
Parameters:
Returns:

a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object

Return type:

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest

Convenience function to create a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object which will yield a Call channel, initially carrying audio only.

After creating the request, you will usually also need to set the “target” of the channel by calling one of the following functions:

To call a contact, either use TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.set_target_contact() or one of the generic methods that takes a handle type argument. To check whether this is possible, use TelepathyGLib.Capabilities.supports_audio_call() with handle_type set to TelepathyGLib.HandleType.CONTACT.

reinstate this when we have CMs that actually allow it: In some protocols it is possible to create a conference call which takes place in a named chatroom, by calling TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.set_target_id() with handle_type set to TelepathyGLib.HandleType.ROOM. To test whether this is possible, use TelepathyGLib.Capabilities.supports_audio_call() with handle_type set to TelepathyGLib.HandleType.ROOM.

In some protocols, it is possible to create a Call channel without setting a target at all, which will result in a new, empty conference call. To test whether this is possible, use TelepathyGLib.Capabilities.supports_audio_call() with handle_type set to TelepathyGLib.HandleType.NONE.

New in version 0.19.0.

classmethod new_audio_video_call(account, user_action_time)
Parameters:
Returns:

a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object

Return type:

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest

Convenience function to create a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object which will yield a Call channel, initially carrying both audio and video.

This is the same as TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.new_audio_call(), except that the channel will initially carry video as well as audio, and instead of using TelepathyGLib.Capabilities.supports_audio_call() you should test capabilities with TelepathyGLib.Capabilities.supports_audio_video_call().

See the documentation of TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.new_audio_call() for details of how to set the target (contact, chatroom etc.) for the call.

New in version 0.19.0.

classmethod new_dbus_tube(account, service_name, user_action_time)
Parameters:
Returns:

a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object

Return type:

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest

Convenience function to create a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object, which will yield a DBusTube channel.

After creating the request, you will also need to set the “target” of the channel by calling one of the following functions:

New in version 0.23.2.

classmethod new_file_transfer(account, filename, mime_type, size, user_action_time)
Parameters:
Returns:

a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object

Return type:

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest

Convenience function to create a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object, which will yield a FileTransfer channel to send a file to a contact.

After creating the request, you will also need to set the “target” of the channel by calling one of the following functions:

New in version 0.19.0.

classmethod new_stream_tube(account, service, user_action_time)
Parameters:
Returns:

a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object

Return type:

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest

Convenience function to create a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object, which will yield a StreamTube channel.

After creating the request, you will also need to set the “target” of the channel by calling one of the following functions:

New in version 0.23.2.

classmethod new_text(account, user_action_time)
Parameters:
Returns:

a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object

Return type:

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest

Convenience function to create a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object which will yield a Text channel.

After creating the request, you will also need to set the “target” of the channel by calling one of the following functions:

New in version 0.19.0.

classmethod new_vardict(account, request, user_action_time)
Parameters:
Returns:

a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object

Return type:

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest

Convenience function to create a new TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest object.

If request is a floating reference, this function will take ownership of it, much like GLib.Variant.ref_sink(). See documentation of that function for details.

New in version 0.19.10.

create_and_handle_channel_async(cancellable, callback, *user_data)
Parameters:

Asynchronously calls CreateChannel on the ChannelDispatcher to create a channel with the properties defined in TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :request that you are going to handle yourself. When the operation is finished, callback will be called. You can then call TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.create_and_handle_channel_finish() to get the result of the operation.

(Behind the scenes, this works by creating a temporary TelepathyGLib.BaseClient, then acting like TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.create_channel_async() with the temporary TelepathyGLib.BaseClient as the preferred_handler.)

The caller is responsible for closing the channel with tp_cli_channel_call_close() when it has finished handling it.

New in version 0.11.12.

create_and_handle_channel_finish(result)
Parameters:result (Gio.AsyncResult) – a Gio.AsyncResult
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:a new reference on a TelepathyGLib.Channel if the channel was successfully created and you are handling it, otherwise None.
context:pointer used to return a reference to the context of the HandleChannels() call, or None
Return type:(TelepathyGLib.Channel or None, context: TelepathyGLib.HandleChannelsContext)

Finishes an async channel creation started using TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.create_and_handle_channel_async().

See TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.ensure_and_handle_channel_finish() for details of how context can be used.

The caller is responsible for closing the channel with tp_cli_channel_call_close() when it has finished handling it.

New in version 0.11.12.

create_and_observe_channel_async(preferred_handler, cancellable, callback, *user_data)
Parameters:

Asynchronously calls CreateChannel on the ChannelDispatcher to create a channel with the properties defined in TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :request and let the ChannelDispatcher dispatch it to an handler. callback will be called when the channel has been created and dispatched, or the request has failed. You can then call TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.create_channel_finish() to get the result of the operation and a TelepathyGLib.Channel representing the channel which has been created. Note that you are not handling this channel and so should interact with the channel as an Observer. See the Telepathy book for details about how clients should interact with channels.

New in version 0.13.14.

create_and_observe_channel_finish(result)
Parameters:result (Gio.AsyncResult) – a Gio.AsyncResult
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:a newly created TelepathyGLib.Channel if the channel was successfully created and dispatched, otherwise None.
Return type:TelepathyGLib.Channel

Finishes an async channel creation started using TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.create_and_observe_channel_async().

New in version 0.13.14.

create_channel_async(preferred_handler, cancellable, callback, *user_data)
Parameters:

Asynchronously calls CreateChannel on the ChannelDispatcher to create a channel with the properties defined in TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :request and let the ChannelDispatcher dispatch it to an handler. callback will be called when the channel has been created and dispatched, or the request has failed. You can then call TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.create_channel_finish() to get the result of the operation.

New in version 0.11.12.

create_channel_finish(result)
Parameters:result (Gio.AsyncResult) – a Gio.AsyncResult
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:True if the channel was successfully created and dispatched, otherwise False.
Return type:bool

Finishes an async channel creation started using TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.create_channel_async().

New in version 0.11.12.

dup_request()
Returns:the value of TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :request-vardict
Return type:GLib.Variant

Return the TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :request-vardict construct-only property.

New in version 0.19.10.

ensure_and_handle_channel_async(cancellable, callback, *user_data)
Parameters:

Asynchronously calls EnsureChannel on the ChannelDispatcher to create a channel with the properties defined in TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :request that you are going to handle yourself. When the operation is finished, callback will be called. You can then call TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.ensure_and_handle_channel_finish() to get the result of the operation.

If the channel already exists and is already being handled, or if a newly created channel is sent to a different handler, this operation will fail with the error TelepathyGLib.Error.NOT_YOURS. The other handler will be notified that the channel was requested again (for instance with TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest ::re-handled, TelepathyGLib.BaseClientClassHandleChannelsImpl or TelepathyGLib.SimpleHandler :callback), and can move its window to the foreground, if applicable.

(Behind the scenes, this works by creating a temporary TelepathyGLib.BaseClient, then acting like TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.ensure_channel_async() with the temporary TelepathyGLib.BaseClient as the preferred_handler.)

New in version 0.11.12.

ensure_and_handle_channel_finish(result)
Parameters:result (Gio.AsyncResult) – a Gio.AsyncResult
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:a new reference on a TelepathyGLib.Channel if the channel was successfully created and you are handling it, otherwise None.
context:pointer used to return a reference to the context of the HandleChannels() call, or None
Return type:(TelepathyGLib.Channel or None, context: TelepathyGLib.HandleChannelsContext)

Finishes an async channel creation started using TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.ensure_and_handle_channel_async().

If the channel already exists and is already being handled, or if a newly created channel is sent to a different handler, this operation will fail with the error TelepathyGLib.Error.NOT_YOURS.

context can be used to obtain extensible information about the channel via TelepathyGLib.HandleChannelsContext.get_handler_info(), and any similar methods that are added in future. It is not valid for the caller of this method to call TelepathyGLib.HandleChannelsContext.accept(), TelepathyGLib.HandleChannelsContext.delay() or TelepathyGLib.HandleChannelsContext.fail().

New in version 0.11.12.

ensure_and_observe_channel_async(preferred_handler, cancellable, callback, *user_data)
Parameters:

Asynchronously calls EnsureChannel on the ChannelDispatcher to create a channel with the properties defined in TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :request and let the ChannelDispatcher dispatch it to an handler. callback will be called when the channel has been created and dispatched, or the request has failed. You can then call TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.create_channel_finish() to get the result of the operation and a TelepathyGLib.Channel representing the channel which has been created. Note that you are not handling this channel and so should interact with the channel as an Observer. See the Telepathy book for details about how clients should interact with channels.

If a suitable channel already existed, its handler will be notified that the channel was requested again (for instance with TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest ::re-handled, TelepathyGLib.BaseClientClassHandleChannelsImpl or TelepathyGLib.SimpleHandler :callback, if it is implemented using Telepathy-GLib), so that it can re-present the window to the user, for example. Otherwise, a new channel will be created and dispatched to a handler.

New in version 0.13.14.

ensure_and_observe_channel_finish(result)
Parameters:result (Gio.AsyncResult) – a Gio.AsyncResult
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:a newly created TelepathyGLib.Channel if the channel was successfully ensure and (re-)dispatched, otherwise None.
Return type:TelepathyGLib.Channel

Finishes an async channel creation started using TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.create_and_observe_channel_async().

New in version 0.13.14.

ensure_channel_async(preferred_handler, cancellable, callback, *user_data)
Parameters:

Asynchronously calls EnsureChannel on the ChannelDispatcher to create a channel with the properties defined in TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :request and let the ChannelDispatcher dispatch it to an handler.

If a suitable channel already existed, its handler will be notified that the channel was requested again (for instance with TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest ::re-handled, TelepathyGLib.BaseClientClassHandleChannelsImpl or TelepathyGLib.SimpleHandler :callback, if it is implemented using Telepathy-GLib), so that it can re-present the window to the user, for example. Otherwise, a new channel will be created and dispatched to a handler.

callback will be called when an existing channel’s handler has been notified, a new channel has been created and dispatched, or the request has failed. You can then call TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.ensure_channel_finish() to get the result of the operation.

New in version 0.11.12.

ensure_channel_finish(result)
Parameters:result (Gio.AsyncResult) – a Gio.AsyncResult
Raises:GLib.Error
Returns:True if the channel was successfully ensured and (re-)dispatched, otherwise False.

Returns:the value of TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :user-action-time
Return type:int

Return the TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :user-action-time construct-only property

New in version 0.11.12.

set_channel_factory(factory)
Parameters:factory (TelepathyGLib.ClientChannelFactory) – a TelepathyGLib.ClientChannelFactory

Set factory as the TelepathyGLib.ClientChannelFactory that will be used to create the channel requested by self. By default TelepathyGLib.AutomaticProxyFactory is used.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.13.2.

Deprecated since version ???: since 0.15.5. The factory is taken from TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :account.

set_conference_initial_channels(channels)
Parameters:channels (str) – a None-terminated array of channel paths

Indicate that the channel which is going to be requested using self is an upgrade of the channels whose object paths is listed in channels.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.23.2.

set_delegate_to_preferred_handler(delegate)
Parameters:delegate (bool) – True to request to delegate channels

If delegate is True, asks to the client currently handling the channels to delegate them to the preferred handler (passed when calling TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.ensure_channel_async() for example).

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.15.3.

set_delegated_channel_callback(callback, *user_data)
Parameters:

Turn on support for the org.freedesktop.Telepathy.ChannelRequest.DelegateToPreferredHandler hint.

When receiving a request containing this hint, self will automatically delegate the channel to the preferred handler of the request and then call callback to inform the client that it is no longer handling this channel.

callback may be called any time after (and only after) requesting and handling the channel (i.e. you have called create_and_handle or ensure_and_handle).

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

See also: TelepathyGLib.BaseClient.set_delegated_channels_callback()

New in version 0.15.3.

set_file_transfer_description(description)
Parameters:description (str) – a description of the file

Configure this channel request to provide the recipient of the file with the given description.

If file descriptions are not supported by the protocol, or if this method is used on a request that is not actually a file transfer, the channel request will fail. Use TelepathyGLib.Capabilities.supports_file_transfer_description() to determine whether outgoing file transfers can have a description.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.19.0.

set_file_transfer_hash(hash_type, hash)
Parameters:

Configure this channel request to accompany the file transfer with the hash of the file.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.23.2.

set_file_transfer_initial_offset(offset)
Parameters:offset (int) – the offset into the file at which the transfer will start

Configure this channel request to inform the recipient of the file that this channel will not send the first offset bytes of the file. In some protocols, this can be used to resume an interrupted transfer.

If this method is not called, the default is to start from the beginning of the file (equivalent to offset = 0).

If offsets greater than 0 are not supported by the protocol, or if this method is used on a request that is not actually a file transfer, the channel request will fail. Use TelepathyGLib.Capabilities.supports_file_transfer_initial_offset() to determine whether offsets greater than 0 are available.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.19.0.

set_file_transfer_timestamp(timestamp)
Parameters:timestamp (int) – the modification timestamp of the file, in seconds since the Unix epoch (the beginning of 1970 in the UTC time zone), as returned by GLib.DateTime.to_unix()

Configure this channel request to accompany the file transfer with the given modification timestamp for the file.

If file timestamps are not supported by the protocol, or if this method is used on a request that is not actually a file transfer, the channel request will fail. Use tp_capabilities_supports_file_transfer_date() to determine whether outgoing file transfers can have a timestamp.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.19.0.

set_file_transfer_uri(uri)
Parameters:uri (str) – the source URI for the file

Configure this channel request to provide other local Telepathy components with the URI of the file being sent. Unlike most properties on a file transfer channel, this information is not sent to the recipient of the file; instead, it is signalled on D-Bus for use by other Telepathy components.

The URI should usually be a file URI as defined by

RFC 1738 §3.10 (for instance, file:///path/to/file or file://localhost/path/to/file). If a remote resource is being transferred to a contact, it may have a different scheme, such as http.

Even if this method is used, the connection manager will not read the file from disk: the handler for the channel is still responsible for streaming the file. However, providing the URI allows a local logger to log which file was transferred, for instance.

If this functionality is not supported by the connection manager, or if this method is used on a request that is not actually a file transfer, the channel request will fail. Use TelepathyGLib.Capabilities.supports_file_transfer_uri() to determine whether outgoing file transfers can have a URI.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.19.0.

set_hint(key, value)
Parameters:
  • key (str) – the key used for the hint
  • value (GLib.Variant) – a variant containting the hint value

Set additional information about the channel request, which will be used in the resulting request’s TelepathyGLib.ChannelRequest :hints property.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.19.8.

set_hints(hints)
Parameters:hints ({object: object}) – a #TP_HASH_TYPE_STRING_VARIANT_MAP

Set additional information about the channel request, which will be used as the value for the resulting request’s TelepathyGLib.ChannelRequest :hints property.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

In high-level language bindings, use TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.set_hint() instead.

New in version 0.13.14.

set_initial_invitee_ids(ids)
Parameters:ids (str) – a None-terminated array of contact ids

Indicate that the contacts listed in ids have to be invited to the conference represented by the channel which is going to be requested using self.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.23.2.

set_initial_invitees(contacts)
Parameters:contacts ([TelepathyGLib.Contact]) – a GLib.PtrArray of TelepathyGLib.Contact

Indicate that the contacts listed in contacts have to be invited to the conference represented by the channel which is going to be requested using self.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.23.2.

set_request_property(name, value)
Parameters:
  • name (str) – a D-Bus property name
  • value (GLib.Variant) – an arbitrary value for the property

Configure this channel request to include the given property, as documented in the Telepathy D-Bus API Specification or an implementation-specific extension.

Using this method is not recommended, but it can be necessary for experimental or implementation-specific interfaces.

If the property is not supported by the protocol or channel type, the channel request will fail. Use TelepathyGLib.Capabilities and the Telepathy D-Bus API Specification to determine which properties are available.

If value is a floating reference, this method takes ownership of it by using GLib.Variant.ref_sink(). This allows convenient inline use of GLib.Variant constructors:

tp_account_channel_request_set_request_property (acr, "com.example.Int",
    g_variant_new_int32 (17));
tp_account_channel_request_set_request_property (acr, "com.example.String",
    g_variant_new_string ("ferret"));

It is an error to provide a value which contains types not supported by D-Bus.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.19.0.

set_sms_channel(is_sms_channel)
Parameters:is_sms_channel (bool) – True if the channel should use SMS

If is_sms_channel is set to True, messages sent and received on the requested channel will be transmitted via SMS.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.23.2.

set_target_contact(contact)
Parameters:contact (TelepathyGLib.Contact) – the contact to be contacted

Configure this request to create a peer-to-peer channel with contact as the other peer.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.19.0.

set_target_id(handle_type, identifier)
Parameters:

Configure this request to create a channel with identifier, an identifier of type handle_type.

This function can’t be called once self has been used to request a channel.

New in version 0.19.0.

Signal Details

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.signals.re_handled(account_channel_request, channel, user_action_time, context)
Signal Name:

re-handled

Flags:

RUN_LAST, DETAILED

Parameters:

Emitted when the channel created using self has been “re-handled”.

This means that a Telepathy client has made another request for a matching channel using an “ensure” API like TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.ensure_channel_async(), while the channel still exists. Instead of creating a new channel, the channel dispatcher notifies the existing handler of channel, resulting in this signal.

Most GUI handlers should respond to this signal by checking user_action_time, and if appropriate, moving to the foreground.

context can be used to obtain extensible information about the channel via TelepathyGLib.HandleChannelsContext.get_handler_info(), and any similar methods that are added in future. It is not valid for the receiver of this signal to call TelepathyGLib.HandleChannelsContext.accept(), TelepathyGLib.HandleChannelsContext.delay() or TelepathyGLib.HandleChannelsContext.fail().

New in version 0.11.12.

Property Details

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.props.account
Name:account
Type:TelepathyGLib.Account
Default Value:None
Flags:READABLE, WRITABLE, CONSTRUCT_ONLY

The TelepathyGLib.Account used to request the channel. Read-only except during construction.

This property can’t be None.

New in version 0.11.12.

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.props.channel_request
Name:channel-request
Type:TelepathyGLib.ChannelRequest
Default Value:None
Flags:READABLE

The TelepathyGLib.ChannelRequest used to request the channel, or None if the channel has not be requested yet.

This can be useful for example to compare with the TelepathyGLib.ChannelRequest objects received from the requests_satisfied argument of TelepathyGLib.SimpleHandlerHandleChannelsImpl to check if the client is asked to handle the channel it just requested.

Note that the TelepathyGLib.ChannelRequest objects may be different while still representing the same ChannelRequest on D-Bus. You have to compare them using their object paths (TelepathyGLib.Proxy.get_object_path()).

New in version 0.13.13.

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.props.request_vardict
Name:request-vardict
Type:GLib.Variant
Default Value:None
Flags:READABLE, WRITABLE, CONSTRUCT_ONLY

The desired D-Bus properties for the channel.

When constructing a new object, one of TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :request or TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest :request-vardict must be set to a non-None value, and the other must remain unspecified.

New in version 0.19.10.

TelepathyGLib.AccountChannelRequest.props.user_action_time
Name:user-action-time
Type:int
Default Value:0
Flags:READABLE, WRITABLE, CONSTRUCT_ONLY

The user action time that will be passed to the channel dispatcher when requesting the channel.

This may be the time at which user action occurred, or one of the special values TelepathyGLib.USER_ACTION_TIME_NOT_USER_ACTION or %TP_USER_ACTION_TIME_CURRENT_TIME.

If TelepathyGLib.USER_ACTION_TIME_NOT_USER_ACTION, the action doesn’t involve any user action. Clients should avoid stealing focus when presenting the channel.

If %TP_USER_ACTION_TIME_CURRENT_TIME, clients SHOULD behave as though the user action happened at the current time, e.g. a client may request that its window gains focus.

On X11-based systems, GDK 2, GDK 3, Clutter 1.0 etc., TelepathyGLib.user_action_time_from_x11() can be used to convert an X11 timestamp to a Telepathy user action time.

If the channel request succeeds, this user action time will be passed on to the channel’s handler. If the handler is a GUI, it may use TelepathyGLib.user_action_time_should_present() to decide whether to bring its window to the foreground.
