Details

TpCapabilities

typedef struct _TpCapabilities TpCapabilities;

An object representing capabilities a TpConnection or TpContact supports.

Since 0.11.3


tp_capabilities_get_channel_classes ()

GPtrArray *         tp_capabilities_get_channel_classes (TpCapabilities *self);

Return the "channel-classes-variant" property

self :

a TpCapabilities

Returns :

the value of the "channel-classes-variant" property. [transfer full]

Since 0.19.0


tp_capabilities_is_specific_to_contact ()

gboolean            tp_capabilities_is_specific_to_contact

If the "contact-specific" property is FALSE, this function checks if named text chatrooms can be joined by providing a chatroom identifier, for instance by calling tp_account_channel_request_new_text() followed by tp_account_channel_request_set_target_id() with TP_HANDLE_TYPE_ROOM.

If the "contact-specific" property is TRUE, this function checks if the contact associated with this TpCapabilities can be invited to named text chatrooms.

If the protocol is such that chatrooms can be joined or contacts can be invited, but only via a more elaborate D-Bus API than normal (because more information is needed), then this method will return FALSE.

self :

a TpCapabilities object

Returns :

TRUE if a channel request containing Text as ChannelType, HandleTypeRoom as TargetHandleType and a channel identifier can be expected to work, FALSE otherwise.

Since 0.11.3


tp_capabilities_supports_text_chats ()

gboolean            tp_capabilities_supports_text_chats (TpCapabilities *self);

Return whether private text channels can be established by providing a contact identifier, for instance by calling tp_account_channel_request_new_text() followed by tp_account_channel_request_set_target_contact().

If the protocol is such that text chats can be established, but only via a more elaborate D-Bus API than normal (because more information is needed), then this method will return FALSE.

self :

a TpCapabilities object

Returns :

TRUE if a channel request containing Text as ChannelType, HandleTypeContact as TargetHandleType and a contact identifier can be expected to work, FALSE otherwise.

Since 0.11.3


tp_capabilities_supports_sms ()

If the "contact-specific" property is TRUE, this function checks if the contact associated with this TpCapabilities supports SMS text channels.

self :

a TpCapabilities object

Returns :

TRUE if a channel request containing Text as ChannelType, HandleTypeContact as TargetHandleType, a channel identifier and TP_PROP_CHANNEL_INTERFACE_SMS_SMS_CHANNEL set to TRUE can be expected to work, FALSE otherwise.

Return whether audio calls can be established, for instance by calling tp_account_channel_request_new_audio_call(), followed by tp_account_channel_request_set_target_id() with handle_type.

To check whether requests using tp_account_channel_request_set_target_contact() would work, set handle_type to TP_HANDLE_TYPE_CONTACT.

Property Details

The "channel-classes" property

  "channel-classes"          GPtrArray_GValueArray_GHashTable_gchararray+GValue_+GStrv__*  : Read / Write / Construct Only

The underlying data structure used by Telepathy to represent the requests that can succeed.

This can be used by advanced clients to determine whether an unusually complex request would succeed. See the Telepathy D-Bus API Specification for details of how to interpret the returned GPtrArray of TP_STRUCT_TYPE_REQUESTABLE_CHANNEL_CLASS.

The higher-level methods like tp_capabilities_supports_text_chats() are likely to be more useful to the majority of clients.


The "channel-classes-variant" property

  "channel-classes-variant"  GVariant*             : Read

The underlying data structure used by Telepathy to represent the requests that can succeed.

This can be used by advanced clients to determine whether an unusually complex request would succeed. See the Telepathy D-Bus API Specification for details of how to interpret the returned GVariant of type a(a{sv}as).

The higher-level methods like tp_capabilities_supports_text_chats() are likely to be more useful to the majority of clients.

Allowed values: GVariant<a(a{sv}as)>

Default value: NULL

Since 0.19.0


The "contact-specific" property

  "contact-specific"         gboolean              : Read / Write / Construct Only

Whether this object accurately describes the capabilities of a particular contact, or if it's only a guess based on the capabilities of the underlying connection.

Default value: FALSE
