New in version 2.26.

class Gio.ApplicationFlags(value)

Bases: GObject.GFlags

Flags used to define the behaviour of a Gio.Application.

New in version 2.28.

FLAGS_NONE = 0

Default

IS_SERVICE = 1

Run as a service. In this mode, registration fails if the service is already running, and the application will initially wait up to 10 seconds for an initial activation message to arrive.

SEND_ENVIRONMENT = 16

Send the environment of the launching process to the primary instance. Set this flag if your application is expected to behave differently depending on certain environment variables. For instance, an editor might be expected to use the GIT_COMMITTER_NAME environment variable when editing a git commit message.

class Gio.SocketMsgFlags(value)

Bases: GObject.GFlags

Flags used in Gio.Socket.receive_message() and Gio.Socket.send_message(). The flags listed in the enum are some commonly available flags, but the values used for them are the same as on the platform, and any other flags are passed in/out as is. So to use a platform specific flag, just include the right system header and pass in the flag.

New in version 2.22.
